When travel professionals have a very special client and a trip that must be hand-crafted, meticulously organized, of the highest caliber, one-of-a-kind-experiences, and exceptional in all regards, they come to us. Over the last thirty years we've hosted founders and executives of the world's largest companies, government ministers and senators, and A-list celebrities that include names such as DeVito, Ford, De Niro, and countless others although all of our travelers enjoy the same service, from premier guides to dedicated local managers.
We are one of the most experienced tour operators in Asia. In 1993, we founded the first American tour operator in Vietnam (see us in Escape Magazine 1994), organizing the very first Veterans, adventure, culinary, and arts tours of the country. We've organized trips from our Hanoi headquarters for three decades, branching out into Laos, Cambodia, Thailand, and Myanmar. Beyond our comprehensive destination information (Luang Prabang, for example), please call us and ask the really tough questions, you'll be impressed.
Your clients will hear from our local staff long before they depart, such as Ms. Diep Le To, our culinary specialist who plans dining arrangements. All of our local office managers in Hanoi, Luang Prabang, Siem Reap, and Bangkok have managed our trips for 15 or more years—unparalleled in our industry.
From VIP arrival arrangements, luxury transport, special events, and matching the perfect accommodations, we've got you covered. Contact us when your clients want a memorable honeymoon trip and perfect resort at the end. We can arrange FOB facility and ground handling services and private jet or helicopter charters.
Experienced U.S. sales office is happy to work with you and directly with your clients pre-booking, even meeting in person as your representative, or if you prefer, supplying you with all the information and materials for you to plan the perfect trip for your clients.

Our founding purpose nearly 30 years ago in Vietnam and Cambodia was to support and help build communities ravaged by war and poverty. Some of our staff from that time is still working and have had raised families and even grandchildfren during that time. We're proud to have built an organizing that made a difference in their lives. We also support local and international organizations and encourage our travelers to engage with them as well. See more about the organizations and communities we support, such as the Vietnam Nursing and Clean Water Wells projects.
We can plan what no other company can. Meet in private with one of Japan's premier samurai sword dealers, renowned artists, such as Dinh Quan, or the country's most decorated fighter ace, Mr. Hong My, in his Old Quarter home, dinner in Phnom Penh with former Ambassador to the United States, Roland Eng, boating and cycling into off limit areas of Inle Lake, delighting children to a private performance in the home of master puppeteer, tour Angkor at sunrise with the foremost expert on the temples, helicopter out to temples few tourists have ever explored, or let us surprise your clients, such as this souvenir video we produced for Marjorie Harvey in Hoi An, below.
Beyond escort staff, your client is monitored by a dedicated tour manager in each location 24-hours a day. In addition, our local office Director plans those special events, such as birthdays, anniversaries, and special introductions.
Our local managers are in contact with your clients well before they depart, and once in country stay in close contact with WhatsApp, and are always on call 24 hours day.
If you've clients who have traveled with Abercrombie & Kent before, they'll be impressed by our more immersive and comprehensive itineraries, local knowledge, special introductions, unique activities, not to mention a much better value than comparative luxury travel operators—"ultra luxe Asia" without the ultra cost.
Nobody really knows what to expect in a new destination, especially Asia. Although we organize an itinerary with your client's preferences and our recommendations, we recognize these preferences and plans changes after arrival especially with children. We're happy to change plans in the moment.
Asia is the ultimate experiential destination. Certainly there are astonishing sites not to be missed, such as Kyoto's sublime imperial properties, Angkor, or Halong Bay, but the most fascinating and thrilling aspects of travel in the region are the people and very special activities we arrange such as elephant encounters, monks, premier chefs, and renowned artists and others, all on a private basis. Our itineraries emphasize unique and spontaneous encounters in each destination.
