Exclusive Guided tours and escorted holidays

Kiango Travel offers exclusive guided tours and escorted holidays for small groups. We carefully and thoroughly research the destination and prepare background and historical information about the destination to give the traveller an idea of what to expect and to maximise the travel experience. Everything is planned for our clients and they are expected to just show up and enjoy the experience.

Kiango Travel specialises in small groups of up to 12 travellers. Small groups are more nimble, allowing the group to cover more ground in a shorter amount of time while also offering the ability to create tighter bonds with fellow travelers.

Our Tour Directors keep groups engaged with their destination expertise, and they maintain a safe, flawless tour experience with the utmost level of professionalism. To ensure safety, we conduct extensive vendor audits and we go the extra mile when it comes to keeping our clients safe at all times.

Destinations:

London; Paris; Rome; Thailand (Phuket, Chiang Mai and Bangkok); Dubai; New York; Rio de Janeiro; Hong Kong; Singapore and Kuala Lumpur; China (Beijing and Shanghai), Zanzibar, Kenya, Namibia and Botswana + Zambia.

International educational tours for students

At Kiango Travel we believe that nothing expands a young person’s worldviews like an international student tour. We seek to introduce students to the world beyond the classroom and inspire them to be the next generation of global citizens.

Kiango Travel offers carefully and thoughtfully designed educational trips for high school learners and tertiary education students.  We carefully balance between educational excursions and fun, combine tours, site visits and hands-on learning opportunities, built around clear learning objectives.

Students will be exposed to the culture, history and way of life and they will have ample opportunity to immerse themselves in the culture of the chosen destination. Our educational themes include Technology, Finance, History, Art, Dance, Drama, Chemistry, Computer Science, Creative Writing, English, Music, Foreign Language, Geography, Government, Humanities, and Poetry.

We can also customise a tour to any destination to suit any educational curriculum.

Destinations: Silicon Valley and San Francisco; New York City; London; China (Beijing and Shanghai)

Travel advisory services

Kiango Travel uses the travel expertise of its experienced Travel Directors to provide travel advice to those who chose to organise their own trips themselves.

 

In addition to our personal knowledge of many of the destinations, we thoroughly research the destinations for our clients, and provide advice that will enhance their travel experience.

 

We promise to give insider information that only the locals have about each client’s chosen destination. Our advice ranges from dos and don’ts in the destination, to best restaurants and local clubs.

Solo Travel

Kiango Travel recognises that enjoying a solo trip is no longer so unusual and tourist trends increasingly reflect this. There are people who still want to enjoy travelling but do not necessarily have companions to travel with or simply want to travel without the distraction of a companion.

Kiango Travel organizes Solo trips to meet the diverse needs of solo travellers, from young singles looking for social activities or to find a partner to some widowed seniors looking for long-term hotel stays or cruises as a luxurious alternative to conventional elder care.
