Kuoni has continued to set the pace in premium worldwide travel in the UK market for more than 50 years and is regularly voted one of the best holiday companies in the country by readers of national newspapers and travel industry titles, including Travel Weekly’s Best Luxury Tour Operator award earlier this year.
As part of DER Touristik, one of Europe’s leading travel groups, Kuoni excels in creating escorted tours with itineraries designed with extra touches to get the most out of a destination. From a rice planting workshop on the Thailand Explorer or vodka tasting on the Highlights of Russia itinerary, all tours are created exclusively by Kuoni and aren’t available with anyone else.
Kuoni’s escorted touring programme has evolved over the years and now specialises in small group tours, with experienced local guides and guaranteed departures to destinations all over the world. With a dedicated escorted touring team looking after all of their groups they focus on designing great quality tours worldwide. Kuoni’s current touring range includes many new options in Europe as well as new tours in Russia, South Korea and Java - and the option to combine a range of tours to create one epic adventure.
Despite it being possible to book their tours earlier than ever, no matter how early customers book, they guarantee their departure dates. Which means customers will never be in a position where they need to rethink their plans.
Their team believe travelling in a small group offers a more intimate experience where travellers can get to know the local tour leader and their fellow travellers in a relaxed environment. They pride themselves on the level of service on their tours; their local tour leaders consider all the little details so that their customers can relax and enjoy the journey. Kuoni use local tour leaders who fully understand their destinations and take pride in giving a real insight into the places they live. Their tours are inclusive of everything you would expect to get out of a destination, as well as extra touches you may not expect.
The company’s latest escorted touring collection includes its biggest ever range of worldwide experiences. From visiting locations from BBC One’s Real Marigold Hotel series in India to seeing snow Monkey Macaques bathe in hot springs in Japan and learning how to make traditional Korean Kimchi in South Korea to sketching some of Sicily’s most stunning sights.
Their itineraries offer unique opportunities to get beneath the skin of a destination, with a focus on real experiences seen through the eyes of our local tour leaders, who know the destinations inside out and can bring these to life by sharing their own personal insight.
