About Us

Luxury Travel Company: Who We Are

We are a company of trusted, passionate travel specialists who create customized luxury journeys to inspiring destinations. Our trips are completely based around your interests and schedule—they are one-of-a-kind experiences that are as unique as you are. We can have you traveling to the far-reaches of Oman’s desert with Bedouins, cooking gourmet meals with a celebrity chef in Singapore, or sailing between the fabled islands of the Galapagos. Our expertise, knowledge, and personal relationships allow us to design journeys that are rugged and adventurous, urban and ultra-sophisticated, or the perfect blend of both. Whichever you prefer, you can be certain that your trip will be filled with exclusive opportunities that only we offer. Our clients have savored Chile’s best wines and slept under the stars in Kenya. They have shopped Morocco’s souks with experts, hiked the most remote parts of China’s Great Wall, watched their kids learn to shred in South Africa alongside pro-surfers, and have perfected their crow pose with India’s most esteemed yogis.

Whether you know exactly where you want to go or need some inspiration, Absolute Travel is here to guide you, and to create a journey that will surpass your expectations. We have over two decades of experience in the luxury travel industry, and we are constantly circling the globe in order to provide you with cutting-edge destination knowledge and personalized, well-planned itineraries that come complete with expert guides with on-the-ground spontaneity, and the perfect place to relax at the end of the day.

5 Reasons to Travel with Absolute

Insider Access: We let you experience the world, not just see it

Absolute Travel’s extensive global network of insiders and experts allows us to create the trip you’ve been dreaming about. Want to make sushi in Japan with a legendary chef? Go heli-skiing in Patagonia after a snowfall? How about jam with local musicians in Senegal, or have an island in the South Pacific all to yourself? We can make it happen. We can also arrange for you to travel through countries by boat, horse, or private jet, and can have you sleeping in a room on the top floor of Dubai’s most luxurious hotel or in Mongolia’s most remote ger. We have more knowledge, relationships, and expertise than anyone in the industry, and we use it create one-of-a-kind journeys and experiences that you will cherish for a lifetime.

In-depth Firsthand Destination Knowledge: We’ve been there

Every travel suggestion we make is based on our personal experiences, and we continue to travel the world to ensure that our recommendations are accurate and inspired. We don’t just know the best hotels and restaurants; we know the rooms with the best views and the best local dishes. We don’t just connect you with random chefs, trekking guides, surf instructors, and artists; we connect you with true experts we know well enough to call friends. We don’t just suggest places we’ve read about; we suggest the far-flung islands, ancient temples, and safari lodges that we’ve been to ourselves and still dream about everyday. We are discerning, we are opinionated, and we welcome the opportunity to share our knowledge with you.

Personalized Service: We create trips that are perfect for you

We learn about your interests so we can create a customized itinerary that really inspires you. We have arranged for art lovers to meet up-and-coming visual artists in Buenos Aires and learn centuries old metal-working techniques in Nepal. Spiritual seekers have made pilgrimages to see sangomas deep in the South African bush, shamans in the Amazon Basin, and have sat with monks in Myanmar’s towering temples. We can build a trip around any of your passions or desires, such as cooking, yoga, archeology, or volunteering, or just incorporate them into a larger journey.

26 Years of Experience: We are visionaries

Our founder, Ken Fish, established Absolute Travel twenty-six years ago. We were the first U.S.-based company to bring Americans to Vietnam and Cambodia, and this pioneering spirit has stayed with us over the decades as we’ve brought people to unexplored parts of the globe and innovated the luxury travel experience by making it completely personal. Ken’s dedicated his life to creating unique, luxury trips for travelers who want to experience the staggering and diverse beauty of the world, and he’s staffed this company with people who want to share the power and joy of travel as much as he does. You simply won’t find another company who knows the world as well, is as excited by it, and who will inspire you to see it so thoroughly.

Peace of Mind: We take care of you

Absolute journeys are worry-free. We have expert local staff in every country who are always working behind-the-scenes so you can just focus on having a great time. Our local staff, along with the rest of the Absolute Travel team, are available not just to ensure your happiness, but to ensure your safety and comfort as well. When you travel with us, you can feel confident knowing that if you encounter any sort of issue, we will be there to assist you.
