Four New Private Tours for Fall 2010: Abercrombie and Kent
Experiential travel continues to thrive because the true rewards of travel are intangible: discovering a new destination at its most intimate and authentic, expanding your view of the world, and returning with memories that last a lifetime. In response to the dramatic increase in demand for travel to Asia and Australia since the first of January, Abercrombie & Kent has added four new private tour itineraries for fall 2010.
“Our clients tell us the value of a trip is not determined by price, but by what they feel they have gained from the experience,” explains Abercrombie & Kent President Scott Wiseman. “Time has become the ultimate luxury and we are responding to their requests for shorter trips that accommodate demanding schedules and limited vacation time.”
