We were pleased with the choices of hotels and tours we had with A&K. Our tour guides were very well informed and interesting and competent. Our only problem arose with the descriptions on our itinerary. They differed a bit from what we were expecting. I feel that the itinerary they sent us was a standardized description for everyone, but not us explicitly. Other than that, our trip was full of fun moments, great hotels and great restaurant recommendations and I would use A&K again.

We spent a couple of great weeks in Africa. The service was great as we were escorted from the time we left until we boarded the plane for home. We experienced many different accommodations in our travels and none were unsatisfactory. Our traveling companions needed electric power all night for a breathing machine, and were supplied with electricity everywhere. One camp could not supply electricity all night, and we were moved to a site that could. Very good service.

Reviewed on: 29 Nov 2013

We used A&K for a tour of South America. The accommodations and tour guides were excellent. However, our tour ended in Brazil on a national holiday weekend. The crowds at Iguazu Falls and Rio were substantial causing long delays. For example, our viewing of the "Christ the Redeemer" statue was re-scheduled from Saturday to Sunday and it rained constantly that day (our last) causing poor visibility, so we were unable to see this most important site.

Mediocre Morocco

By: M in London


Reviewed on: 10 Mar 2014

We just returned from a weeks vacation in Morocco with A and K.  The itinerary was fine and the country is extremely beautiful.  However, we did not not have a great guide.  The first two days he took us to lunch at these places where there were only tourists and the server REFUSED to give us a menu.  We were inclined to trust that the guide took us to a decent place so we went with the 'set' menu only to find that we were horribly ripped off.  A similar scenario happened the next day until we complained to A and K.  The restaurant problem improved but after that there were a few other situations where we felt ripped off.  Additionally, the guide's knowledge and general interest in our having a good time seemed low.  Bottom line: Others had told us that when in Morocco it seems like you have to constantly be on guard and we were hoping that going with a company like A and K would have better shielded us from this.

My wife and I just returned from an extraordinary trip to Egypt.  My advice: take this trip at the next available opportunity.  A&K lived up to their gold standard reputation.  Their ogranization, support, professionalism, lodging, food--all excellent.  What attracted us most were the sites chosen to visit, and they were, of course, spectacular.  Our Egyptologist/guide, Wael, was superb:  enormously knowledgeable, passionate, funny, great rapport--in other words, the best kind of teacher.  What we had not anticipated was the collegiality and energy of our group.  We woke up each morning looking forward to spending time with these people.  This was a wonderful trip.

2 days with A&K in Russia

Reviewed on: 14 Sep 2015

A & K are extremely professional. Nothing but 1st rate service each time we are in their care. They are very good at changes on the fly if necessary. Their staff are knowledgeable, very polite, and come as advertised. They DO know the secrets of the cities we have shared with them, and St. Petersburg is no exception. Once again, true to the adage, you get what you pay for. They do come at premium rates, that are justified by the premium service. On a trip such as we took it is easy to compare prices and services with other guests that took "similar" ground tours. While we did pay considerably more, we also got considerably more. One other great thing was the fact that they handled all Russian visa requirements, removing that burden from us. Thanks A & K for making a great trip even greater.

Disembarment help was sadly lacking and compared to other tours we have been on a huge disappointment. Also incident of observing the bus driver arguing with the tour director when he should be meeting her needs. Tour director- very good.

Barge trip - Renaissance Loire/Burgundy

By: Mike and Susan


Reviewed on: 18 Sep 2017

This was a lovely trip. Not having done a barge trip we did not have specific expectations but did want to see the more rural and traditional side of France. The trip accomplished that. The barge was comfortable, the crew very responsive and helpful and the food and wine very good. We would do it again. One small suggestion - perhaps the barge could offer some sort of picnic lunch that the guests could take with them on shore excursions as opposed to returning to the barge for lunch. We are walkers and bikers so the ability to take lunch and meet the barge at the evening mooring would be nice. In fairness, I am confident that the crew would have responded to such a request - we didn't think to ask until too late in the trip but might have had the option been offered earlier. That was our fault, not the barge's. We thoroughly enjoyed the trip and will probably do another one.

We came back exhausted, disappointed and glad to be home. No value for money here.

General Unpreparedness

Reviewed on: 14 Jan 2018

Our pre-trip itinerary and supporting documentation was marketed as if the trip was pre-scheduled and would be worry-free. Upon arriving in Cape Town, itinerary items had been adjusted and removed, and we were left scrambling late at night after long international travel to call and get our itinerary fixed. The itinerary we received upon arrival was vastly simplified. Our guides, who were all excellent, had been tasked with coordinating many activity logistics instead of having the pre-scheduled itinerary that we were promised. Even after being promised by them that our itinerary would be restored to the one that we booked, wine tastings were not pre-scheduled, we did not get to do a bike ride that had been promised, and our first full day in the country was limited to a half-day rather than the full day promised in the itinerary. Also, A&K never communicated the timing of hotel and airport transfers and "made it up to us" by simply sending a bottle of sparkling wine to our hotel room.

Pretty Much As Expected

By: Betty


Reviewed on: 08 Feb 2018

This is our third trip on Safari with A & K. Everything went very well and they were there when we needed and expected them to be this making the trip most enjoyable and less stressful. My only complaint would be in the communication with several of the agents in the Chicago office. I lost patience but worked through Deb Knopf, our travel agent, and all worked out. They seemed to take forever to respond to requests and one was particularly curt with her responses. Having owned a travel agency and having been a travel agent earlier in my career ( I am now retired), I am well aware of what to expect in form of response time, etc. and/or even checking back to indicate they needed more time. I also expected more detail for some of the responses as the itinerary was complex and required more detail for the response. In Africa everyone was wonderful and very professional and we could not have been more pleased.

Our Peru adventure was seamless with A&K. The arrival of our “book of adventures” (as I like to call it) was a great summary of everything we neede to know. We especially appreciated the tipping guide. It’s always hard to know what’s appropriate. But the one thing that made our experience truly remarkable was our guide, Frances. He is exceptional in so many ways- from our initial meeting to his knowledge of the flora and fauna (especially birds) as well as the history and details of each area that we visited. We’ve never encountered an individual that knew so much about everything! He was quick to engage our 10 year old daughter in everything we did. She loved him as much as we did! He is a remarkable individual and a true asset to the A&K team. Well done Frances!!

The tour itself was great, however the logistics were not. A&K booked our internal flights from the A&K pre-trip to Victoria Falls to the start of the regular tour in Nairobi, Kenya. Instead of booking a short afternoon direct flight from Zambia to Kenya, they had us travel 2 flights leaving in the morning; the first back to South Africa with a layover, then on to Kenya. This took a half day from our pre-trip and left us exhausted for the start of our tour. When we finally arrived there was no A&K representative to meet us at the airport in Kenya. We had to call A&K to locate them in the parking lot while others on our tour were met in airport. We were not delivered to the hotel until after midnight. We booked this trip over a year in advance including the pre-trip, so there was no excuse for this flight schedule. I don't feel the 3 day pre-trip was worth the money charged as we only got 1.5 days.

The trip started out poorly when we got to the Canopy Hilton in Reyjkavic. There were no porters, the front desk was not very helpful. No one seemed in charge. They could not tell us where to meet our tour guide for our 6pm briefing. Sleeping was very difficult as there was a tremendous amount of outside noise. I was in two different rooms on different sides and both were so noisy outside, sleep did not happen. Many people in our group felt the same way. Once we left Reyjkavic, it was a wonderful trip. Our guide, Halifi (sp) was fabulous and the places we went were not overcrowded and seemed very special. I'm usually a cruise person, but Iceland cruising is no where near as good as a land tour especially going into the interior. There were a lot of special moments, such as the glacier, the Super Jeep experience, the whale watching, the black beach and of course, all the waterfalls. I really appreciated the luxury of the bus and the fact that it had charging stations and wifi.

The last night's farewell dinner was held in a noisy restaurant and our group of 15 was split into two tables. It would have been nice to have a private room for this dinner.

Most of our Africa trip went well. That said, A&K totally botched one leg of the trip by failing to notice that plane tickets issued on that leg were issued for the wrong day. This resulted in a 7 hour layover in the Nairobi airport to catch a flight that got us to our destination at 3:30am. Mistakes happen, but A&K’s attitude was to trivialize the impact on my wife and I and take a position of “no harm, no foul. We still got you there, so what’s the big deal. They originally offered nothing for our troubles, then $200, then $800. You pay a premium for their service and reputation, and they did not earn it on our trip—either through action or attitude.

It was an excellent tour. The itinerary, hotels, food and attractions were well chosen and were superb. Our guide ran the trip without a hitch throughout. He was knowledgeable, friendly and helpful. Our group jelled together in a few days, never an argument, nobody ever late. The only glitch on the tour was a full day trip to the tiger reserve from 7.30 am to 6.30 pm by train (which was late), and by bus on narrow, pot hold roads. Very tiring for a bunch of old people, and I am not sure if it was worth it.

A&K Southwest US tour

By: Porter family


Reviewed on: 27 May 2022

We had a fantastic time in the desert southwest on our private A&K trip. We will cherish our memories from that week. There are a couple items which we thought could be improved. A&K indicated in the trip itinerary that we were responsible for tipping and gave us guideline amounts. For the price of the trip we thought that tipping should be covered by A&K. Additionally, some excursion operators indicated to us that A&K had taken care of tipping. Needless to say we were confused. We also experienced miscommunication between A&K and the tour operators regarding pick-ups. On the evening before one excursion the operator called and said they did not do "pick-ups" from the location we were staying. In the end we got a ride, but we were surprised that this had not been worked out before. Again, we had a fantastic time on this trip. The excursions were amazing. However, without these miscommunications would have made for a better experience.

Was disappointed in the trip. Only one local guide. No menu choices for a number of lunches. No beverage choices.

A number of people booked their flight prior to 10 am and transportation to the airport was provided to them. We were told we could either wait at the airport for 8 hours or be taken to the hotel in Calgary and then make our own way to the airport. We spent the time in Calgary and then paid our own way to the airport. The hotel in Jasper was inadequate to handle the heat. Room never cooled off. If there is another record heat in Jasper another hotel should be booked. Maybe one more day should be added so everyone can be transported to the airport from Calgary.

When we were younger, my husband and I prided ourselves on planning every aspect of our global exploratory trips. Now in our 60's and traveling to even more exotic locales, we were introduced to Abercrombie & Kent by both our trustworthy Travel Partner, Valerie Ambrose, and A&K's great marketing program. We have especially enjoyed the 18-person, small-group trips that match our budget and expectations. We have just returned from an amazing trip to Turkey that has far exceeded our expectations (not an easy feat!). Despite the platinum accommodations through A&K (hotels bend over backwards for this tour company and its customers) as well as extremely comfortable private transportation throughout the trip, we feel that the guide makes the visit with their country-knowledge, historical depth, and local connections for prime experiences.

Mixed review on A & K

By: Patti


Reviewed on: 11 Nov 2022

The first and last venues were terrific, but the boat on the Nile was not first class! The shower and bath were beyond tiny. There was no elevator for 5 floors. There should be many more food choices than Egyptian on the buffets -- maybe BLTs, grilled cheese, tomato/chicken noodle soup. There should be fewer buffets -- little protection from others breathing/touching foods. I thought the Nile trip had a smaller boat (under 18) and we have pvt guide. The touring program was set in stone for the group and no flexibility to see other sites, have tea at the Cataract Hotel, etc. Too many sites in too few hours. I thought this was personalized, not like a first trip to Europe bus trip. Tour guides took us to local vendors and pushed to buy -- yuck! A & K did not offer other options to see some, if not all, the sites along the Nile. This experience is romanticized by movies and Agatha Christie's Death on the Nile. Too many early morning flights --2 am is stupid or first class!

Just completed a trip to Bhutan/Nepal with Abercrombie & Kent; including hiking to the “Tiger’s Nest”. The trip was incredible and the itinerary exceptional. Bhutan had just reopened and adjusted their travel restrictions after a lengthy COVID period of closure. Our trip had a few bumps in the road; but, the hotels, food, transportation, heritage sites and the natural wonders of both Bhutan and Nepal were amazing. Resident tour director, Mahesh Amatya, was wonderful with his insights into the Bhutanese and Nepalese cultures, history and the timeless realms of Buddhism in both countries. We have traveled with A&K several times over the years and it was important to us to feel secure, all the while having attentive service and comfort while enjoying the various sites, meeting the local people and learning about their cultures.

Our driver Firaz and guide Roberto at Jordan, driver Orabi and guide Ramzey at Israel were beyond our expectation. They were always taking care of us, explain every single question to the detail, always try to please us and make us feel secure. They took us to make shopping even after finishing the day, they made space in their personal schedule to please us. Now we have brothers from other mothers at Jordan and Israel. We highly recommended them and A&K without any reservation. PS. Last January, we went to Egypt with A&K, always impress with them!

Experience with Abercrombie was good. Some things were not as I expected for a tour company of AK's regard, but the trip was excellent and they did everything they could to please us.
