At Ker & Downey, we know there are lots of decisions to make when planning a trip. We live in a world of information overload with hundreds of travel review sites and endless comments to sort through. Which of those reviews can be trusted? Once you pick a destination, what’s the best way to get there and what experiences should you include? Let our experts help you.
Travel doesn’t have to be complicated. At Ker & Downey, we’re simplifying travel. We create a totally tailored travel experience that allows you to explore even the most remote places in the world without fussing over the details.
One of a Kind
You’ll work with a designer to plan your journey, completely customizing it to your desires and preferences. Each of our designers are destination specialists who have spent a significant amount of time traveling in their destinations. Moreover, their knowledge of where to go and what to do is unmatched. In addition to their personal expertise of specific locales, Ker & Downey has access to a high-profile network of curated experiences. Enjoy a meal at Basque Gastronomic Society in San Sabastian or tour the Egyptian pyramids with the Minister of Antiquities. Need after-hours tours when museums are closed to the public, specialist guides, or that coveted reservation at the world’s hottest restaurant? If you dream it, we can make it happen.
At Ker & Downey, we specialize in one-of-a-kind trips. No two journeys are alike. Because we don’t work with set travel dates or large tour groups, you are free to roam the world when you want, how you want. We offer VIP meet and greets at the airport with assistance through security whenever available, as well as private guides and vehicles on each journey. Plus, our comprehensive travel documents help you become familiar with your itinerary well in advance.
In-House Air Department
Take the guesswork and travel logistics questions off your plate. Our in-house air department offers competitive rates and provides an in-depth knowledge of the best flight itineraries so you spend more time exploring and less time in the air or at airports.
At the heart of Ker & Downey is a desire to make lives better with each trip. We give back to the local communities in which we travel through partnerships and philanthropic donations. We have joined forces with partners like WildAid, the Great Plains Foundation’s Rhinos Without Borders, Grootbos Foundation – Green Futures, ABOUTAsia Schools, and the Galo Plaza Lasso Foundation to make an impact in local communities. With your help, we’ve been able to donate $70,000 dollars to Rhinos Without Borders. Meanwhile, for every person traveling to South Africa, we have made a donation to Grootbos Foundation Green Futures which includes planting over 600 trees in their milkwood forest. In addition, we support 110 schools in Siem Reap through ABOUTAsia Schools.
We also support rural communities in Uganda and Kenya through Ker & Downey for Africa, our passion project. Through your donations, we provide insecticide-treated mosquito nets to fight against malaria and provide medical services to people in need. For some, it is the only doctor they will see all year. To date, Ker & Downey has handed out over 90,000 mosquito nets.
Just as one size does not fit all when it comes to travel, we know you have your own passions and ideas about how to incorporate your favorite philanthropy work into your travel plans. Whether it’s visiting a local community or heading out with a research team to join in the conservation efforts of animals, we welcome the opportunity to incorporate meaningful ways for you to give back during your journey.
We truly hope each journey you take is transformative. Experience a world of difference when you plan a trip and travel with Ker & Downey. Contact a designer to start planning your journey today.
