Ampersand, tailor-made . . .
Since 2003 Ampersand Travel has been arranging the very best tailor-made holidays to Asia, and, in recent years, to Southern Africa and the British Isles. The goodwill and longstanding relationships we have created and nurtured with our suppliers means that our clients experience our countries in a way that most never will. We believe that ‘luxury is in the experience’; we love travelling in style but we’re not afraid to step off the usual circuit in order to experience something truly exceptional. We specialise in exclusive tailor-made holidays that are perfect for honeymoons, wildlife adventures, cultural tours, sabbaticals and multi-generational family holidays.

The Bespoke Luxury Travel Experts
At Ampersand we believe that ‘luxury is in the experience’: whilst love travelling in style, we’re not afraid to step off the usual circuit in order to experience something exceptional. We specialise in exclusive tailor-made holidays that are perfect for honeymoons, cultural tours, family trips, wildlife adventures, sabbaticals and multi-generational holidays.
Since 2003 we have established ourselves as a leader in creating luxury tailor-made tours to the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia and the Far East. And in keeping with our desire to share the places we know and love best, we are thrilled to add Southern Africa and the British Isles to our portfolio of destinations.
Our clients are mostly private individuals who recognise that time is their most precious asset and want to entrust it to experts with a well proven track record. This smoothes out the planning process and ensures that they have the most rewarding and memorable experience possible. We also look after some of the world’s most acclaimed museums and organisations who rely on us to arrange once in a lifetime small group tours for their most important patrons.
