Arts & Culture expert-led tours

Cox & Kings’ Arts & Culture tours focus on some of mankind’s greatest creative achievements in fascinating destinations worldwide. Art, architecture, archaeology and gardens are covered in this programme and the tours will suit all culture-lovers, enthusiasts and experts alike.

All the tours are led by experts who work with Cox & Kings’ own in-house specialists to design the itineraries, often including private visits that would not be available to the wider public. These trips typically have a greater focus on specific themes than regular Cox & Kings holidays and the experts are on hand to provide colour and depth of understanding throughout the tour, both during informal talks and at sites along the way. The tours are also accompanied by local tour managers to ensure they run smoothly and, in many places, local guides share their particular knowledge and expertise during excursions.

Where possible we have set aside enough time to allow for independent exploration. However, as with all Cox & Kings tours, our expertise at organising private tailor-made travel means that we would be delighted to create pre- or post-tour extension if you would like extra time to explore independently.
