The Abercrombie & Kent Private Jet Tours capitalise on the most rewarding aspects of this growing segment of the cruise market; travel convenience, privileged access to world-class destinations and ultimate comfort. The chartered Boeing 757, customised with a mere 50 lie-flat beds, carries guests effortlessly from place to place, with no airport security queues, lost luggage or delays. Overnights are spent in leading hotels and resorts. True to this company’s reputation as a leader in high-end global travel, itineraries include exclusive visits to iconic landmarks, invitation-only events, access to local culture and soft-adventure experiences. Curated tours incorporate leading experts and people of interest who travel with guests.
Themed tours include Tropics to the Arctic; a 26-day journey encompassing a Colombian street market, luxury overnight in the Gobi desert and a helicopter descent into an Icelandic volcano. In 2018 A & K has partnered with The New York Times on a 25-day world tour where guests travel with the publication’s notable journalists. Experts offer inside views on the emerging destinations visited, giving perspective and truth behind current headlines.
Each destination is allocated enough land-based nights to fully enjoy the surroundings and visit important landmarks. Accommodation ranges from lavish hotels to eco-camps depending on the nature of the environment and experence.
The Italian leather seats, complete with massage and lumbar support, lie-flat when rest is required. Bose headphones and iPads are given to each guest. Seating areas and a fully stocked bar offer the opportunity to relax and socialise with fellow travellers and each journey has a dedicated Tour Manager on board. Cuisine is of the highest standard, prepared by the dedicated in-flight chef, served with top-end wines and spirits.
