Unique Events & Exotic Destinations

Unique Events & Exotic Destinations

Marco Polo Journeys give you VIP access to the events and celebrations that lend each destination its unmistakable character, from the Chelsea Flower Show to Mongolia's festive Naadam games. These journeys can also feature exotic destinations just finding their way onto other travellers' radar, and Marco Polo travellers are often among the first A&K guests to visit emerging and off-the-beaten-path locales, such as Jordan, Uganda and Sri Lanka.

Unmatched Insider Access

Unrivaled Insider Access

Thanks to our extensive and long-established local ties, A&K can offer access to people and sites far beyond the reach of the average traveller. Imagine watching a private kung fu demonstration in the place it originated, the Shaolin Temple, or attending a member’s only day at the Chelsea Flower Show. Wherever you travel, A&K takes you past the crowds of waiting tourists and into places no other travel company can go.

Intimate Groups of Just 18 Guests

Intimate Groups of Just 18 Guests

Our journeys are created to connect you to your destination. That's why Marco Polo Journeys are limited to just 18 guests. This allows A&K to introduce you to the kind of people and places inaccessible to other travel companies. It also enables us to choose smaller, boutique properties that don't accommodate large groups and ensures more one-on-one interaction with your A&K Resident Tour Director.

*Not available on days with cruises, train rides or internal flights due to security requirements.
