For 255 years, we’ve listened to the wants, aspirations and seemingly impossible dreams of our travelers. And for 255 years, we’ve delivered the finest, most thrilling, and most unforgettable travel experiences possible.
And we do it with style and class! From blissful stays at luxurious wilderness camps and the former palaces of emperors to exclusive cultural immersion experiences that take you right to the heart of your destination and its peoples, we make sure that each journey is the trip of a lifetime.
Our legacy is built on the historic facts: we organized expeditionary travel to India as early as 1758; we operated the first attempted expedition to Mt. Everest in 1922; and we brought Mahatma Gandhi to Europe in 1933. And we’ve been part of the cultural landscape for more than a quarter millennium. In fact, we were mentioned in the Sherlock Holmes tales, and we’ve even been the inspiration for a tasty cocktail made with Darjeeling tea-infused gin (what else?) called the Cox & Kings.
