Customize Private Experiences on Abercrombie & Kent’s Luxury Tailor Made Journeys



DOWNERS GROVE, IL – May 22, 2018… Just as a bespoke suit guarantees the perfect fit, a custom family vacation is no different. Designing a private journey around your family’s interests, pace and style of travel – with local guides by your side to take care of all the details – offers an almost fool-proof method for planning a successful family vacation. Abercrombie & Kent’s LuxuryTailor Made Journeys are created just for families, featuring the must-see cities, hidden gems and the most Instagrammable sites along the way – in more than 100 countries around the world.


Whether built around the hottest family destinations like Japan and Peru, family classics like Alaska and Italy, or adventurous destinations like Kenya and Morocco, each itinerary can be customized to reflect a family’s interests, from active adventures to regional food specialties, wildlife, art or traditional handcrafts. Explore colorful markets in Tokyo and manicured gardens in Kyoto. Feed llamas, alpacas and vicuñas in Cusco with an opportunity to sample chocolate treats and try your hand at crafting traditional pottery


A&K has a team of dedicated Tailor Made Travel Consultants, each an expert who can offer personal recommendations because they have spent time in the region themselves. These suggested day-by-day itineraries provide a starting point for an in-depth conversation about where the family wants to go and their travel interests, whether built around one-on-one time between a parent and child — or an extended family spanning multiple generations. Each journey features family-friendly hotels, local dishes and child-friendly interactions and activities. A&K guides are gurus at keeping all ages interested and engaged, even if it means rearranging plans on the fly


On A&K’s Luxury Tailor Made Family Journeys, every detail from sightseeing to meals is handled by local A&K experts, taking the stress out of planning — and leaving only the anticipation of an exciting family adventure
