Kensington Tours


One of the best client-to-guide ratios you'll find (sometimes 2:1) doesn't prevent Kensington from offering luxury trips in more than 70 countries at lower prices than its competitors ($250 per person per day on average). Before departure, a personalized Web page gives you up-to-date information on trip logistics; upon arrival, you can change your itinerary on the fly if, say, you're in Romania and have a hankering to see Dracula's Castle.
