We had a wonderful time in Colombia! The mix of locations were wonderful - from modern & lively Bogota, to historical old city of Cartagena, to the secluded beaches of Tayrona NP. All our transfers ran like clockwork, and our guides were fun, knowledgeable, and easy going. To top it off - we got engaged on the trip! Truly one for the books. :)

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

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.

The worldwide offices are located in UK, USA, Japan, Russia, Singapore and Dubai. It has associate offices in Germany, Italy, Spain, South Africa, Sweden and Australia.
