Ampersand, Tailor-made . . .
Ampersand Travel has been arranging the very best holidays to Asia since 2003, and, in recent years, to the British Isles and Southern Africa. The goodwill and longstanding relationships we have created and nurtured means 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 are not afraid to step off the usual circuit in order to experience something more rewarding. We specialise in exclusive tailor-made holidays that are perfect for honeymoons, wildlife adventures, cultural tours, sabbaticals and multi-generational family holidays.

Southern Africa: a heady mix of ravishing coastlines, jaw-dropping scenery, thrilling wildlife, outstanding cuisine and 5-star lodgings means it’s perfect for the adventurer, sun seeker, safari enthusiast, foodie fanatic and budding photographer. Best known for its safaris, Southern Africa has the largest concentration of wildlife on the planet, but if wildlife isn’t your thing, then the vibrant city of Cape Town and its surrounds offers some of the finest eateries and vineyards in the world.
Asia epitomises diversity; packed with culture, colour and a dazzling array of mind-blowing sights. Home to the Himalayas, Sri Lanka’s golden sand beaches, Indonesia’s tropical jungles there and Burma’s mystifying pagodas, there is a wealth of variety at every turn. Sample the zingy flavours of some of the best cuisines in the world, absorb the innate spirituality amongst the countless temples, monasteries and sacred sites and be enveloped in age old traditions and cultures.
A small group of islands bursting with character and eccentricity, the British Isles will be sure to capture your heart from the moment you arrive. Discover the romanticism of the historical country houses, royal palaces and ancient castles of the British nobility, cosy down in the warmth of the picture-perfect Cotswolds, ramble in the blustery wilderness of the Scottish Highlands, and experience world-class cuisine and excellent museums and galleries in the buzzing urban hubs.

The Bespoke Luxury Travel Experts
At Ampersand we believe that “luxury is in the experience”. We love travelling in style but are not afraid to step off the usual circuit in order to experience something more rewarding. We specialise in exclusive tailor-made holidays that are perfect for honeymoons, cultural tours, family trips, wildlife adventures, sabbaticals and multi-generational holidays.
Over the last 15 years we have established ourselves as a leader in luxury Asia holidays to the Indian Subcontinent, Southeast Asia and the Far East. In keeping with our desire to share the places we know and love best, we are thrilled to add 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 group tours for their most important patrons.
