What is the difference between A.K. Taylor International and Abercrombie & Kent?

Because of my name, I am often confused with Abercrombie and Kent which is headed by my brother. A.K. Taylor International is a small, family company and often works closely with the world-renowned A&K as a ground operator.    

One can book A&K through us at no extra cost which gets you the benefit of a personalized, boutique service with the backing of an international organization. 

In addition, A.K. Taylor is a totally autonomous company that uses a rolodex of operators and affiliates depending on which one is the best fit for any given trip.

What services does A.K. Taylor International provide?

We are full service travel specialists who, with our ground operators, can handle every logistic of your trip. 

Does it cost more to book through A.K. Taylor International?

Typically, it does not. As travel professionals, we work closely with the lodges, hotels and operators who value our business. This allows us to offer you competitive rates. In addition, we deliver added value both because of our personal service and because our in depth knowledge allows us to organize complex and seamless itineraries that take into account unforeseen costs and fees. Write or call us and we will be happy to explain in more detail.    

Do you book air reservations?

We do, but only in conjunction with land reservations as part of an entire itinerary.  

Can we book some of the itinerary through you and some parts on our own?

We can, but prefer not to in order to ensure a smooth operation of your journey. 

When is the best time to visit?

We believe there are pros and cons to visiting places at different times of the year. We are happy to talk it through with you. 

What should I pack? Do I need a visa, shots, special shoes?

This is all covered in the pre-trip consultation. We put together extensive documentation that will cover every last detail. And of course, we are always just a phone call or email away.
