Cox & Kings’ roots stretch all the way back to its establishment by Richard Cox on 21st July 1758.

Enjoy the savings that group travel affords, while exploring with a small group of people who share your passion for seeing new sights.
To enhance your enjoyment of the tour, they like to keep their groups genuinely small and manageable. Therefore, numbers are normally restricted to a maximum of 18 and an average of only 14 guests. Their general interest group tours uncover the best the world has to offer, whether that means a destination’s fabulous heritage, charming cultural traditions, mesmerising landscapes or enthralling wildlife.
Cox & Kings also specialise in group tours for solo travellers with no supplements on their dedicated Solo Travellers tours, and limited No Single Supplement places available across their full collection.
