Escorted small group tours by Cox & Kings

Enjoy savings made possible by travelling as part of a group of like-minded people on our escorted small group holidays. Group sizes are usually restricted to a maximum of 18 and an average of just 14, so you are able to get the best out of your experience. To find out more about our small-group tour experience, watch our YouTube video.

As well as general interest group tours, which reveal the world’s most fascinating cultures, magnificent wildlife or spectacular landscapes, Cox & Kings also organises Arts & Culture tours focused on art, architecture and archaeology, and solo travellers group tours

We are also able to organise private group tours for clubs or societies, weddings or other special occasions.

The benefits of travelling with Cox & Kings on a small group tour

Tour manager: Cox & Kings tour managers are carefully selected for their travel experience and organisational abilities. Your tour manager will meet your group on arrival and will escort you throughout your journey (unless otherwise specified).

Expert local guides: On most tours, in addition to the services of the tour manager, Cox & Kings escorted group tours also benefit from the knowledge of local guides who accompany each excursion. In some cases, where appropriate, the tour manager will also act as the local guide. Where possible, your entrance fees are included in the holiday price.

Scheduled flights: Cox & Kings uses only the services of scheduled airlines for all international and most internal flights. All prices are based on Economy Class flights; Cox & Kings offers excellent upgrade rates if required and details of these are shown on the tour pages. Flight schedules may mean that some early morning departures or arrivals may be unavoidable.

Comfortable land travel: For road journeys, Cox & Kings uses buses of a size appropriate to the size of the group, with air conditioning where this facility is available. On rail journeys, groups are booked in the best available class on the train.

Small group sizes: To enhance your enjoyment of the tour, we like to keep our groups small and manageable. Therefore, numbers are normally restricted to a maximum of 18 and an average of just 14.

Extensions: Cox & Kings is happy to arrange for you to extend your stay beyond the escorted group tour dates. We have suggested extension options for most tours online, but our specialist consultants would also be delighted to design a tailor-made extension for you, either pre- or post-tour, to fit in with your interests. Group tour extensions are operated on the same basis as private travel unless other members of the main tour group choose to take the same extension, in which case the relevant services may be shared.

Tour & accommodation standards

We have highlighted the standard of accommodation featured on a tour immediately above the tour itinerary.

In some cases, tours include some departures in one category and some in another: you can see and select the different tour types under ‘tour variations’. For these tours, the itinerary is generally the same and just the standard of accommodation varies. However, if there are any variations in the excursions included, these are shown within the itinerary.

Superior: Most Cox & Kings tours fall under this category and are based in 4- or 5-star accommodation, or the best available.

Luxury: These tours will usually feature 5-star de luxe accommodation throughout.

Standard: Simpler in emphasis, these itineraries typically feature 3- and 4-star accommodation throughout.

Discovery: This type of holiday is best suited to the hardier traveller, as it will typically include some quite basic accommodation, possibly longer and rougher road journeys and, in some cases, more arduous activities, such as trekking.

Single supplements

As the cost of maintaining a room for one person can be almost as high as it is for two, most hotels around the world charge more per person for a single-occupancy room than for a shared twin room. In addition, many single-occupancy rooms are the same as twin / double rooms. Our Single Travellers group tours, however, do not include any single supplements.

Regional air connections & flight upgrades

Most Cox & Kings holidays are based on flights from London Heathrow or Gatwick and, in most cases, it is possible to connect with those flights from regional British airports for a small supplement. In addition, Cox & Kings can offer favourable prices for upgrading to Premium Economy, Business and First Class.
