"The World's Best Luxury Tours Specialists" - Fodor's Travel
Kensington Tours was chosen as one of The World's Best Luxury Tours Specialists by Fodor's Travel Intelligence Blogger Suzanne Steinert. For specializing in intimate, hand-crafted adventure tours at an unbeatable value, Kensington Tours makes the top list for the industry's best client-to-client ratio (often 2:1) and competitive custom guided tour prices in over 90 countries. Here's what Fodor's says: Why They're the Best: With arguably the industry's best client-to-guide ratio (often 2:1) and custom guided tour prices in over 90 countries averaging just $250 per person per day (around 30% less than group trips elsewhere), Kensington has a leg up on its competitors. Its Antarctic safaris (there's even a quickie day trip from Cape Town!) are top notch, featuring mountain climbing, visits to emperor penguin colonies, champagne lunches on the ice, and accommodations in a luxury tented camp. Launched in 2010, Kensington's Explorer-in-Residence itineraries offer the rare privilege of traveling on bespoke adventures with world-famous explorers, like Mikael Strandberg, a Swede who spent a year with Patagonia's gauchos and biked 20,500 miles from Norway to South Africa, or Richard Wiese, who skied across the North Pole and discovered 29 new life forms on Mt. Kilimanjaro. Other client-friendly touches include a personalized pre-departure website to provide you with up-to-the-minute itinerary info, plus reliable, local staff on hand with 24-hour support if you need to spontaneously re-route. Trip to Take: Book the '7 Nights for 5' Spring Costa Rica promotion (valid April 20 - June 15, 2012) and enjoy peaceful rainforest hikes, pilgrimages to colonial churches, swimming in waterfalls, horseback riding on the beach, and bedding down at an intimate eco-hotel on an organic coffee plantation. From $2208/person not including airfare. Click here to read the complete article at Fodor's Travel Intelligence Blog.
