Fascinating Festivals and Unique Journeys in 2020 with Abercrombie & Kent

Contact Your Travel Expert

Have those post-holiday blues? With Abercrombie & Kent, you can keep celebrating at festivals year-round and world-wide.

If you’re a traveler who’s seen and done it all, look to our Marco Polo Journeys for inspiring new adventures off the beaten path. Some journeys forgo creature comfort in pursuit of the road less taken, while others venture behind closed doors to shed new light on iconic destinations.
For a Marco Polo Journeys guest, new adventure is as easily found in the wilds of Mongolia’s Flaming Cliffs as it is behind the scenes of one of San Sebastián’s hottest restaurants.

Marco Polo Journeys also afford insider access into the world’s most inspiring festivals and events, whether a rarely seen glimpse of Papua New Guinea’s Goroka Festival or VIP access to the Chelsea Flower Show.

Led by A&K’s most celebrated Resident Tour Directors and featuring groups of no more than 18 guests, Marco Polo Journeys reveal a deeper and more authentic insight into the world that inspires you.





Why Abercrombie & Kent’s Marco Polo Journeys

Insider Access and an Unmatched Local Presence
When you travel with A&K, you enjoy unrivaled insider access to the authentic heart and soul of a place — and to people and sites that lie far beyond the reach of the average traveller. Our longstanding relationships in every destination we visit make it all possible, from the seamless flow of an A&K itinerary to the prompt attention paid to an unanticipated request. This trustworthy, on-the-ground presence also allows us to manage your safety and security, which are always our first priorities.
Itineraries You Won't Find Anywhere Else
Discover a bold new lineup of exotic destinations and insider access with a Marco Polo Journey in 2019. For those looking to blaze a trail, we’re going farther afield to uncover Brazil’s Pantanal wetlands, Canada’s coastal wilderness and Oman’s desert oasis. We’re also exploring the world’s most inspiring architecture, wildlife, events and festivals. Whether it’s taking in Dubai’s “Little Manhattan,” or joining Papua New Guinea’s Independence Day celebrations, these journeys deliver the luxury of access.
An Expert at Your Side: The A&K Resident Tour Director
Leading your Marco Polo Journey are A&K’s most popular and in-demand Resident Tour Directors - the best of the best. He or she brings your itinerary to life through decades, if not an entire lifetime, of firsthand experience in your destination. The result is a journey that transforms your understanding of a place, connecting you to the people and places you encounter in a way you’ll never forget.
Intimate Groups of Just 18 Guests
Our Marco Polo Journeys are limited to just 18 guests, allowing us to reserve hotels that can’t accommodate the typically larger (40-plus) groups that travel with other companies. This also opens up a world of exclusive insider-access opportunities, from private museum openings to visits with local people in their own homes, while affording you time to get to know your fellow guests and interact with your Resident Tour Director.
Accommodations that Immerse You in the Culture
In keeping with the Marco Polo experience, we handpick the accommodations to immerse you deeper into the local culture. From palaces to yurts, from trains to yachts — your experience is made all the more authentic by the places you stay. The remoteness of some destinations may entail fewer creature comforts than a typical A&K luxury journey would afford, but to a Marco Polo guest, the luxury of location is well worth the trade-off.
