Our Destinations

Ampersand Travel: Luxury tailor-made holidays . . .

Since 2003 Ampersand Travel has been arranging the very best luxury tailor-made holidays to Asia, and, in recent years, to Africa as well. 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.

AMPERSANDThe Bespoke Luxury Travel Experts

At Ampersand we believe that ‘luxury is in the experience’: whilst we love travelling in style, we’re not afraid to step off the usual circuit in order to experience something exceptional. We specialise in exclusive, luxury 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 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.

Client Testimonials

Ampersand’s preparation, attention to detail and interaction before and during our trip show exactly why good travel agents have a role in today’s internet booking age. They were a delight to deal with!
- Mr David Wallace, North India
Without question, you put together the best trip I have ever taken. We were shown around like visiting dignitaries, the hotels were fantastic and the itinerary was just right. Everybody I know will hear about how amazing Ampersand is!
- Leslie Siben, India
I would recommend Ampersand without any hesitation!!! The best travel agent that I’ve ever had dealings with. Everything – from the individual care and attention in helping to plan the trip, through to the efficiency of the agents on the ground in India – was handled brilliantly. An absolutely first-class service all round.
- Matthew Annable, Rajasthan, India
So many highlights to choose from! The hotels were amazing but Maya Villa was a highlight… I loved just hanging out in the hammock reading my book and watching the peacocks chase the cows!
- Krista Weir, Sri Lanka
I had a very lovely time and was looked after splendidly. My first visit to India could not have been better, save for being longer! But I shall return at some point and I shall look to you to make the arrangements.
- Matthew Nicklin, North India
We had a wonderful holiday - everything was perfect. Thank you for helping us to make a thoughtful plan to enjoy and make most out of our trip. The places we visited, the guides, the transportation and driver, the hotels selected... Everything was great!
- Jaime Benitez, South India
Difficult to articulate just how good the service from you and your team really was. We know you will continue to do well and hope we have the chance to seek your assistance again before long.
- Mr & Mrs Manson, North India
I thought the Ampersand team was outstanding. We couldn’t have hoped for anything more.
- Mr Geoffrey Johnson, India
Everything you did for us whilst we were away was hugely appreciated, and Ampersand has been exemplary in every way. I'll always recommend you!
- Mr Richard Stoughton, Sri Lanka
