Various Destinations: High-end tour operator Abercrombie & Kent doesn’t offer deep discounts on its guided packages very often, which is why we like the holiday sale, which runs November 27 - December 1. The offers take 50% off a selection of the company’s private tours, which include private sightseeing for you and your travel companions, private transfers, and daily breakfast. This year’s destinations include Machu Picchu, Chile, Botswana, and Thailand. Tours are priced $1,995-$4,195 per person — far less than typical private tours -- based on double occupancy, and do not include air.
