WORLD’S LEADING TOUR OPERATOR
FOR 11 YEARS IN A ROW
In 2008, Kuoni received ‘The World’s Leading Tour Operator’ award
at the World Travel Awards, for the eleventh time in a row. This is a
distinction conferred on only the most outstanding travel ﬁrms,
elected by 167,000 industry specialists from around the world.
Alfred Kuoni (1874 - 1943)
Established in 1993, these awards are considered one of the
Swiss founder of the
Kuoni Travel Group industry’s highest accolades.
IS YOUR PLAYGROUND
A thousand years ago, people travelled in search of new lands to
conquer. To set up trade routes. To prove to a disbelieving world that
the planet was not ﬂat. Or to settle in a new land.
Times have changed.
The world now travels largely for pleasure. And it is our privilege to
be the forerunner in this industry.
Little did Alfred Kuoni imagine, when he set up his travel ﬁrm selling
afternoon trips to Üetliberg in 1906, that his enterprise would grow to
span four continents. His passion for creating the most authentic
travel experience, his dedication to the comfort of every traveller…
these traits sent thousands on the holiday of their dreams.
Everything about a Kuoni holiday is premium, in the truest sense of
the word. First class seats in the ﬁnest airlines. The most exquisite
hotels in every city. Sightseeing experiences that allow you to
participate deeply in new cultures. You will ﬁnd that Kuoni arranges
your trip with astonishing attention to your particular taste.
It is, after all, your holiday. Your escape from the old world to one
equally familiar, yet only dreamt of until now.
the heart of our business:
A hundred years of taking people to discover the most magical places on the planet.
Time enough to understand what makes a holiday perfect.
Kuoni believes in and dedicates itself to its three core values, of Reliability, Authenticity
and Passion. These come closest to deﬁning what our customer can expect from us.
The ﬁrst, Reliability, draws on our heritage, and means that the customer can always
expect the best from us.
The second, Authenticity, conveys the nature of the destinations and experiences we
oﬀer, customised to the preferences of each traveller.
Passion is the sentiment evident in everything we do, and the natural exuberance that is
a part of each holiday.
The merging of these three values is perhaps what has helped us create holiday
experiences that transcend cultures and languages to be cherished in the mind for years.
And we trust will continue to do so for the next hundred years.
The most passionate travellers are and sightseeing choices that

private luxury journeys
the gourmet vacation
There’s something about a holiday that increases the appetite
multifold. Perhaps it’s the fresh air. Or the eager anticipation of the
day ahead. Whatever be the reason, we ensure that meals are
something you will look forward to.
Every morning, wake up to the convenience of a hot buﬀet breakfast
at your hotel. At lunch time, you are free to sample the local cuisine
at any of the restaurants around your hotel, or en route to your next
destination. End your days with ﬂavours of home: a sumptuous
dinner at an Indian restaurant located close to your hotel.
Almost every day of your journey has a culinary surprise in store.
Lunch at the celebrated Galeries Lafayee, Paris. A Tyrolean dinner in
Innsbruck, complete with entertainment. A visit to Ben & Jerry’s Ice
cream Factory, with tastings, of course. Every kind of cuisine from
across the globe, at the World Carnival Buﬀet, Las Vegas. A
sumptuous lobster dinner at Sydney. A wine tasting in a Stellenbosch
vineyard in South Africa. And more.
Meals included in your holiday have been mentioned against each day of your itinerary.
The key is as follows:
B: Breakfast, usually a buﬀet spread ► L : Lunch, usually Indian ► CL : Continental Lunch ► PL: Packed Lunch
D: Dinner, Indian unless speciﬁed ► CD: Continental Dinner
the art of indulgence
On holiday, it’s essential that you spend your nights in comfort,
enabling you to rise refreshed for a day packed with possibilities. At
Kuoni, we give you a choice of the most celebrated hotels and resorts
in each location.
In Europe, you may choose from ﬁve star, four star city-centre or four
star city-limits hotels.
In Australia, you may choose between ﬁve star or four star hotels, or
you may choose to stay at serviced apartments which oﬀer
considerable luxury while oﬀering you more bedrooms, and the
convenience of a fully stocked kitchen.
In New Zealand, South Africa, Canada and the USA, you may choose
from ﬁve star and four star hotels.
The hotels and resorts we oﬀer have been chosen for their level of
luxury, services, location, amenities and opportunities for recreation.
So that you can look forward to puing up your feet in comfort at the
end of each day.
So carpets of snow, spilling down over holiday destination of choice for decades.
