Luxury travel company, Abercrombie & Kent, and fine arts auctioneer, Christie’s, join forces to offer clients in the Middle East a once-in-a lifetime luxury travel experience.

Professionals went to great lengths to handpick destinations from the four corners of the globe – from the Côte D’Azur, Venice, Florence, New York and London, to Cairo, Rajasthan and Beijing – taking travellers on an international hunt for historical and artistic ‘hidden gems’; New York’s iconic museums and Egypt’s Valley of the Kings are two prime examples of these.

“This is an exciting collaboration for clients in the Middle East. We are delighted to offer the art expertise of Christie’s with A&K’s 50-year history of planning and delivering insightful travel experiences. Created around specific events in the global art and antiques calendar, this unique collaboration will show intimate groups of art lovers insider views and the very best of a destination’s artistic culture,” says Debbie Duncan-Studart, general manager of A&K UAE.

Christie’s experts will lead tours, workshops and other activities, sharing tips on how to purchase art and assisting participants when it comes to purchasing an art piece.

“Each journey is accompanied by a leading Christie’s expert who is on-hand throughout to introduce friends and contacts, share their expertise and insight and advise and guide any transactions on behalf of guests wishing to purchase artwork,” adds Duncan-Studart.

With UHNW individuals in the region moving away from lavish resort experiences, A&K and Christie’s are offering an attractive alternative that will allow travellers to visit new places and purchase and admire unique artworks from different eras and cultures.

These exclusive tours are organised throughout 2015 with limited spaces available.
