It feels like we’re still celebrating our Travel + Leisure’s #1 World’s Best Tour Operator 2013, and we’re proud to announce last week we were named to Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Tour Operator 2016 List once again. We are so grateful.
Why is this a big deal? The award was selected by travelers like you. “Our greatest asset is our team,” said Absolute Travel president and founder Ken Fish. “We create the extraordinary for our clients, and it feels fantastic to be revered worldwide as one of the best at what we do. The award is particularly gratifying knowing it was driven by our clients. My team and I are celebrating just like we did after being named Travel + Leisure #1 World’s Best in 2013!”
Here’s how we differentiate ourselves from the rest of the competition:
WE PUT YOU WHERE YOU WANT TO BE: We listen to what you want on your trip, and blend firsthand-destination knowledge and creative experiences to create a thoughtful journey you can’t find elsewhere. Our team puts you where you want to be: in the center of rare wildlife and cultural encounters, alongside renowned conservationist guides, waking up at a dreamy hotel you never knew existed until you arrived, and in front of views few will ever see. It’s these hard-to-arrange experiences that so many are looking for, but that take our insider connections to arrange.
OUR CLUED-IN TRAVEL EXPERTS GIVE YOU UNBIASED TRAVEL ADVICE: Our team of luxury travel planners understand your desire to plan a trip with a trusted expert who feels like a clued-in friend. We’re honest. We’re savvy. And, we’re known for our straightforward recommendations. Our informed opinions and candid responses to your questions are invaluable.
GET FRESH, OF-THE-MINUTE TRAVEL RECOMMENDATIONS: This is a game changer. We go to these places and find the secret gems, meet the locals that transform your trip, and visit the lesser-known spots that make a place truly special. Then, we use this intel to create very special trips for you. Our skills go beyond recommending trending hotels and expert guides; we turn logistically tricky itineraries into seamless ones, and try that lesser-known route to determine if it’s worth taking or a waste of your time.
TRAVEL WITH PEACE OF MIND & SUPPORT: We are here for you! In addition to the peace of mind that comes with working with a trusted travel expert, our in-house operations team and expert local staff in every country work behind-the-scenes to help ensure a worry-free trip.
PROUD COMMITMENT TO CONSERVATION & SUSTAINABILITY: Our commitment to conservation and sustainability has become a cornerstone of the company, and we take great pride in connecting you to the world’s wild places, creatures and traditions to help protect them.
This is all because of travelers like you. Thank you for believing in us!
The Travel + Leisure World’s Best award was officially announced on July 6th, and will be featured in the August issue of Travel + Leisure. Tour operators were rated on staff and guides, itineraries and destinations, activities, accommodations, food and overall value.
