My family just returned from the Cox & Kings American Bonanza (12-25 July 2015) tour. From booking the tour till our return it was a disaster for us. In short, it was a pathetic tour and we now regret opting for Cox & Kings. We will not recommend Cox & Kings to any of our friends and family members. Ambady Manoharan … Read Full Review

Experience with Cox & Kings on USA tour On July 15th, 2015, my wife and I went to USA on a Coast to Coast 12 Night, 13 day tour using the Cox & King tour & travel. Our tour started from Los Angeles and ended in New York. The group traveled to 8 Cities, crossing 9 states. While there were some positive segments of our trip, we found many discomforts during our excursion. Two very pleasing components of our trip were the hotel and travel arrangements. However, much of the time, the arranged… Read Full Review

People nice but their processing very slow. They kept blaming "the computers are slow". That's not acceptable. We had the appt when they open and we were there for 2-3 hours. They had a lobby full! We pay enough fees to process visas-- they need to work on improving their computers, processing system etc. Too inefficient!! Not acceptable. Sadly disappointed!!!!!… Read Full Review

Firstly not enough people on our tour so no tour guide, we were reliant on local guides to meet us and take the local tours. Most guides were good, some fantastic, knowledgeable, helpful, and some downright unprofessional. The latter hurried us through the tours because they had other places to be or completely mucked up the tour. I've done several tours with Cox and Kings but no more. Not worth the money you pay. I don't think changing flights so you have a stopover that lasts from midday… Read Full Review

We went to Srilanka thru Cox and Kings Kolkata and had a very bad time....at the Airport, even though we had paid for visit visa, there was some problem and we had to apply for Visa on arrival. The Srilankan Authorities were very cooperative and the matter got sorted out. But Cox and Kings put up their hand saying it is a one off thing. The Driver, who was supposed to be a tour guide/driver was completely unco-operative and was only interested in ensuring that he does minimum number of kms and… Read Full Review

I booked a private Andalusian tour that included transportation. This was important to me because I use a cane. In Cordoba, no car arrived for either the trip to or from the hotel. I finally went onto the street and found and paid for my own transportation. On my return I informed the company who said they would look into it. After a month of no response, I asked for an explanation. I was informed that the car company had been paid and that the situation was "regrettable.' No explanation… Read Full Review

An expensive trip to Bhutan after Cox and Kings recommended. Tickets not sent until 5 days before departure. Hotels changed at short notice. The ones allocated were very disappointing and guide had to take us out to eat at several restaurants as food limited and poor quality. Hotel facilities inadequate and of poor standard for such an expensive trip. The vehicle assigned to us was only only suitable for short journeys and we were travelling 7/8 hours in it some days. Very cramped and not fit… Read Full Review

Complaint against Cox & Kings Ltd I booked for me and my wife in American Bonanza tour with Cox & Kings Ltd scheduled between 28th Aug and 10th Sept 2013. From beginning it was decided that I would join the group in USA at JFK Airport, New York when they arrived there. The mails were also exchanged just few days before, confirming that the tour Manager would contact me at JFK and take us along with the group to the hotel. For any reason if the group left the Airport without us it was agreed… Read Full Review

We booked this trip with Cox and Kings rather than cheaper tours with other companies because we mistakenly believed that for the extra money we would get a better experience. Wrong! Wrong! Wrong! From start to finish this was a very poor holiday. From being left to hang around for over an hour on arrival at Moscow Airport, to being taken to the train station over an hour before our train to St Petersburg departed, being left standing on the station platform for an hour. Being "whizzed" around… Read Full Review

We booked a tour to Thailand, Laos and Cambodia 6 months in advance which used 4/5 star hotels. One week before departure we were told that one hotel was unavailable because it was full and another hotel was substituted in it's place. The substitute… Read Full Review

I had booked south-east asia tour through Cox and Kings India. I covered Thailand, Malaysia and Bali. The tour was not well organized by Cox and Kings. In other words, it was dreadful and appalling. Customer service was always lacking in standards. Pre-tour info/briefing was not given. Lot of aspects and inclusions about the tour were not informed to me. During the tour, the sightseeing trips were in disarray. The travel agent did not co-ordinate pick-up times with me for sightseeing. More… Read Full Review

Cox and Kings cleverly market themselves as being a centuries-established and rather pukkah, traditional British company. But, in essence, they are a glorified travel agent who organise tours from their central office, and pass on the actual running of those tours to secondary agents, who are located in their trip destinations.
Our trip to South America was so-so, but there was NO Cox and Kings representative anywhere. In Peru, Argentina, and Brazil, we were solely in the hands of travel… Read Full Review

My experience with Cox and Kings: A nightmare
We planned, a tour for USA in the month of May. I approached Cox and Kings a reputed travel agency.
I booked for the coast to coast tour with their agent located in Thane. The company is well establisehd and operating for many years, hence I did not feel the necessity to check with the other tour operators. I made the bookings well in advance(2 months). The tour was scheduled for 22nd May. I visited the agent 3-4 times for making payments and… Read Full Review

Company is not well managed in INDIA on ticketing and franchising support but has a good brand name.
But the tour is managed well abroad especially in Europe.
They really need to revamp the shortcomings on doing a good service to customers in INDIA to travel abroad.
You are almost blackmailed either saying you may not get ticket,airliner is not concfirming what we can do etc.Some times you are forced to pay extra amount.
