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.

As well as general interest group tours, which reveal the world’s most fascinating cultures, magnificent wildlife or spectacular landscapes, Cox & Kings also organises Specialist-led tours focused on art, architecture and archaeology, rail journeys 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 a Cox & Kings small-group tour

Local tour managers 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).

Scheduled flights 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.

Hassle-free transfers 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.

Immersive activities 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.

Characterful accommodation Characterful accommodation

We take great care in our selection of accommodation. Typically, we feature well located 4- and 5-star hotels.

Join like-minded companions 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.

Solo friendly travel Solo-friendly travel

Our Solo Travellers group tours allow you to explore free of single supplements alongside other solo travellers, and with the guidance of an experienced tour manager.

Balanced pace Balanced pace

Opportunities to relax or explore independently are built into most tours. However, unlike other operators we will always include what we believe are the must-see highlights in the cost of your tour.

Extend your journey 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.

Signature experiences Signature experiences

Each tour includes a number of exceptional experiences, revealing hidden wonders and cultural secrets. We specialise in taking travellers, in comfort, to places off the beaten track and outside the realms of many other operators.

Important information

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 Solo 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.
