A private guided holiday takes the stress out of organising your trip. From pre-booking your accommodation to booking flights and transfers, a tour company handles the logistics of your travel plans for you. That leaves you free to explore your destination on foot, by bike, car or boat and take in the scenery. You can also choose to stay longer in a city or add extra days to relax at your leisure. This flexibility is especially useful for travellers with limited time, families and those wishing to celebrate a special occasion like honeymoons or birthdays, take on a charity challenge or simply enjoy a well-deserved holiday with friends and loved ones.
Whether you’re looking to take the stress out of your trip or to maximise your time, we recommend a private guided holiday. You’ll receive the best service from our local guides and experience more of your destination than you would on a group tour.
Guided tours might conjure images of pensioners dawdling around an overrun tourist attraction but they’ve moved on a long way since the COVID-19 restrictions introduced small groups and private tours to many more people (in part out of necessity). For those who don’t have the time to plan their own trip, or don’t want to face the potential social distance that comes with travelling alone, there is still plenty of opportunity to travel in the company of like-minded travellers by joining a small group or private tour.
These types of trips offer the best of both worlds, combining the freedom and flexibility of independent travel with the safety and peace of mind that comes with an experienced local guide. These guides are a must-have when you’re traveling in unfamiliar places, or visiting remote areas during unrest, bad weather or in any situation where your safety might be at risk.
Aside from their expertise in the destinations you’re travelling to, they can often offer insights into local culture and history that you might not be able to get from a guide book or from online research. They’ll be able to tell you about the sights and activities you’re seeing in a way that’s engaging, interactive and truly rewarding.
Whether you’re looking to celebrate a milestone birthday or anniversary, make the most of a family holiday or reconnect with friends over a relaxed getaway, you can enjoy your own private group departure on all KE adventures excluding polar cruise holidays. You can select a standard departure date for your adventure or we can work with you to create a bespoke itinerary that meets your needs.
