A Letter from the President

The process of innovation is ongoing. At Ker & Downey we are constantly striving to bring you the best travel experiences around the world. Behind-the-scenes, we’re also working to develop ideas and processes to make sure your trip is smooth, every step of the way — from the first phone call or email until the day you return home. 

This fall, we’re launching new river cruise programs across Europe, Asia, and Africa. In this issue of Quest Magazine, we’ve highlighted a few you can expect, and how to add pre- and postcruise land extensions for a more in-depth exploration on your journey.

Closer to home, we are working on new ways to explore some of the nation’s most pristine land. To experience it, my daughter Haley and I drove 924 miles across Texas in three days to check out five different Texas ranches. In addition to the land in Texas, we’re looking at a few other ranches in Colorado, New Mexico, and California to determine  how we might best incorporate them into our Ker & Downey portfolio. You can read more about our road trip and peek at our plans on page 54. 

Your peace of mind and safety while traveling with us is important. To continue providing the best possible service we can during your trip, we are proud to partner with Global Rescue. Through this program, we are able to provide you with Medical Transport Services and Security Evacuation Services. This new service will come standard on every customized Ker & Downey journey. You can read more about our partnership in this issue on page 19.

On our YouTube channel you’ll find the latest destination videos, while our website has a new company store to assist with all of your travel needs and t-shirts that can be purchased to support our Nets for Africa philanthropy project. 

While innovation is the key to the future, our commitment to providing life-changing trips stays the same.
