Please do not waste time paying to this company. As they steal your entire tour amount if your visa gets rejected which is not informed in advance. I lost around 3 lakhs due to cox and kings as they had assured me I will get my visa which got rejected and now they won’t refund it. It’s a fraud company

Having read a fantastic article about travelling to South Africa with Cox & Kings in the Telegraph I was completely inspired to arrange my own trip. This is my first time travelling with Cox & Kings and I have been overwhelmed by the exceptional service, care and attention I have received to date. The knowledge of their experienced team is second-to-none and I am very excited for my forthcoming holiday. Well done Cox & Kings, it's a joy to find a travel company I can wholeheartedly trust to deliver an experience suited entirely to my needs.

Very personal and professional approach, dealing both on the macro-holiday as a package, but also at the micro-scale to include or alter elements that we wished to change. Very much a sense of 'can-do'. Company works at its best to meet your interests and personal ideas. We specially chose a flight routing and they were able to work with us on that, and also with the different accommodation we wanted. Company definitely makes you feel like an individual.

Stride Review

With roots and offices in London and current Indian ownership, Cox & Kings specializes in high-end small-group tours and private tailor-made trips to locations around the world. 

What Makes Them Stand Out? 

Talk about experienced – Cox & Kings has been around since 1758, which makes them the world’s oldest established travel company. Their luxury offerings include short- or long-term itineraries, whether pampered or adventurous.

Who Travels With Them?

Cox & Kings attracts people who like far-flung, meticulously planned travel adventures and are willing and able to pay for them. 

Where Do They Operate?

The company operates tours worldwide, ranging from both polar regions to Australia, North to South America, Europe to Asia, the Caribbean to the Mideast. No part of the globe seems too far off the track to warrant their interest. 

How Does It Work?

You can opt either for a guided small-group or private tour, or create your own itinerary from the ground up. For guided tours, they offer a series of special Royal Academy art tours and also tours for single travelers that don’t charge single supplements. For private travel, they’ll set you up on rail journeys, cruises, culinary trips, and family holidays. Land accommodations are in four or five-star hotels when available. 

Why Travel With Them? 

With more than 250 years’ experience, this is no fly-by-night tour operator. Cox & Kings has built a formidable team of travel experts and guides around the world, and prides itself on offering good value for the money, by taking advantage of its buying power to land good deals on flights, lodgings, and other travel items.

From Cox & Kings - the Americas

By 1878, C&K were agents for most British regiments posted overseas, including the Royal Cavalry, Artillery and Infantry, as well as the Royal Wagon Train and the Household Brigade. The Royal Navy was next and in 1912, The Royal Air Force came under its wings.

Between 1750's and 1950's, Cox & Kings was witness to an exciting era in Indian history, and, in its own way, helped to shape it. In 1947, the British administration departed, but bound by strong ties to India, Cox & Kings stayed on and flourished. Today, Cox & Kings is a premium brand in all travel related services in the Indian subcontinent, employing over 5000 trained professionals.

Its India operations are headquartered in Mumbai and has the status of a limited company. It has over 12 fully owned offices in India across key cities such as New Delhi, Chennai, Bangalore, Kolkata, Ahmedabad, Kochi, Hyderabad, Pune, Goa, Nagpur and Jaipur.
