A&K’s Travel Consultants
Our more than 30 top-notch Travel Consultants have an average of 10 years’ experience, and each is a proud expert in their chosen region of the world. They’re also born adventurers, and they can advise you on the best places to visit because they’ve usually been there themselves. Your consultant gets to know you as an individual, one traveller to another, in order to make your journey everything you want it to be.
Experience the opulence of Moscow from a different and unique perspective: the Moscow Metro. Adorned in marble, mosaics, chandeliers and statues, 44 of the almost 200 stations are listed as cultural heritage sites.
The Tower of London is always a must-see while visiting London, but I recommend a rarely seen insider-access moment: the Ceremony of the Keys, which has taken place every night for 700 years.
Most people travelling to Jordan want to visit Petra, but Wadi Rum (the Valley of the Moon) with its amazing sandstone formations is a must — especially when combined with a stop at a Bedouin camp for some authentic Jordanian hospitality.
When cruising the Galápagos, seven days on a boat can feel like a long time — I recommend a four-night cruise with three nights of relaxing on Santa Cruz, where you can snorkel with sea lions or visit a conservation center.
While travelling in Morocco, I recommend a night of luxury camping in the Sahara Desert at the Erg Chebbi Dunes. Enjoying a camel ride at sunset and then stargazing in a brilliant night sky is truly a highlight!
For guests visiting Alaska, I like to include Kantishna Roadhouse in the untouched portion of Denali National Park, away from all the tourist buses. Here they can enjoy hiking, wildlife spotting, flightseeing near Mt. Denali — maybe even the northern lights!
In Nepal, don’t miss the sunrise over the majestic Annapurna Mountains while in Pokhara, a short 20-minute flight from Kathmandu, and explore the quaint village of Bandipur nestled in the foothills.
Nowadays it’s easier than ever to fly between countries in Africa, so my guests can have breakfast in Nairobi following a Kenyan safari and enjoy a late lunch in Cape Town along the Victoria & Albert Waterfront.
I always recommend experiencing Milford Sound by helicopter. The helicopter allows you access to some of New Zealand’s more secluded areas, and spectacular scenery including lakes, valleys, and mountain peaks.
For the guests interested in theater, I like to include a Peking Opera performance in Beijing, and to make it really special, I can arrange for them to dress in an authentic costume and walk onstage before the show.
For my guests travelling in India, I like to include a visit to the private areas of the City Palace in Jaipur to see how the royal family lives. They may even run into them!
For guests going on an East African safari — particularly those travelling with children — I recommend breaking up game drives with other activities such as bush walks, horseback and camel riding, baseball with local children or even a biplane flight.
