the Kirker difference

Added value

In each destination, Kirker has a range of special offers to include extra nights and hotel upgrades, as well as complimentary entrance tickets to museums and galleries. In cities such as Budapest, Prague and Marrakech, guests receive a complimentary walking tour with an expert local guide – the perfect introduction to the history, architecture and geography of the area – while visitors to Paris, Berlin and Madrid receive a museum pass which provides hassle-free fast-track entrance to a host of top museums and art galleries.

Expert advice

Kirker’s knowledgeable team has many years of experience and Kirker’s hotels and destinations are individually selected. Together with your Kuoni Personal Travel Expert, every holiday is tailor-made by a Kirker expert who cares passionately about the success and smooth running of every element of your holiday – before, during and after you travel.

Cultural tours & music holidays

A range of carefully crafted escorted holidays, with fascinating itineraries designed for those with an interest in wine, architecture, history, art, gardens, music and much more. Groups typically consist of 12-22 like-minded travellers, in the company of an expert tour lecturer, who will provide unique insights and behind-the-scenes visits to places that are not normally open to the public. Experience opera weekends in Vienna, Venice and Milan, wine tours in La Rioja, Champagne and Alsace, ancient history in Rome, Naples and Provence or the verdant gardens of Ireland, Italy and Marrakech.

Unique concierge service

While hotels and travel arrangements are crucial, it’s often the details of a holiday that are the most memorable, and with a special occasion or a short city break, it’s vital to plan these elements in advance. The Kirker Concierge is at your disposal to arrange tickets for opera, ballet or concerts – or perhaps football, rugby or tennis matches – to pre-book entrance for museums and galleries, organise private guided tours or excursions, and recommend restaurants and book a table for a delicious dinner, so you can sit back and relax.
