Abercrombie & Kent released 2019 dates and prices for the company’s Luxury Small Group Journeys – groups no bigger than 18 – as it says travelers’ booking lead time has increased.

The new Wonders of the Galápagos & Machu Picchu journey begins with a four nights aboard an expedition vessel in the Galápagos Islands, where travelers can choose from a variety of island activities such as kayaking, snorkeling, or light trekking. Twice-daily shore excursions include nature walks led by certified naturalist guides. Up next, explore the ruins of Machu Picchu in the company of an expert local guide and learn about centuries-old traditions in the Sacred Valley.

Images of Indochina & Angkor Wat was revised for 2019, to include a visit to Luang Prabang, Laos, alongside Vietnam and Cambodia.

The itinerary takes travelers to the ruins of Angkor with an expert local guide, including visits to Angkor Wat and Angkor Thom, and Ha Long Bay, Hanoi and Ho Chi Minh City.

The luxury tour operator has also introduced an early booking incentive on safaris in East Africa. Travel advisors can save $750 per person on select dates (Jan-Mar 2019) of The Great Migration Safari in Style, Kenya & Tanzania Wildlife Safari, and Tanzania Safari in Style when booked by July 31, 2018.
