Cox & Kings Offers New Custom Tours of Europe

June 21, 2011 By: Jena Tesse Fox

If your clients like to explore a destination in-depth, here's a new option for them: Cox & Kings, The Americas is now offering custom-designed and escorted journeys to Europe, primarily the region’s less visited, “under the radar” destinations, including detailed tours of Turkey, Romania, Russia, Sicily, the Balkans, Scandinavia and Iceland. Luxury five-star private journeys as well as more value-driven Discovery Group Journeys will be available to the region.

The official Cox & Kings Europe catalogue listing bespoke experiences offered in the region will be available October 2011. Several of the private journeys featured in the catalogue are “Marvels of Turkey,” a 14-day tour exploring both cultural and natural sights in Istanbul, Cappadocia and Pergamon, while the Discovery Group Journeys include “Timeless Romania” – visiting the country’s medieval towns and Carpathian mountains – and “Classic Sicily,” which covers the land’s impressive Roman art and Norman architecture, along with natural highlights such as the iconic Mount Etna.

To oversee the development of the new Europe product, Cox & Kings has announced the appointment of Europe specialist and Destination Manager, Thor Forsberg. Based in the company’s newly opened Los Angeles headquarters, Forsberg will design and develop new journeys to the continent, acting as a liaison between the traveler and the on-the-ground Cox & Kings tour guides and support staff.

A veteran travel professional, Forsberg shares two decades of experience in the industry, with former positions held at Nelson World Travel and Scandia World Travel. As a Scandinavia and Eastern Europe specialist, Forsberg initiated travel programs and managed the companies’ tour divisions, as well as assisted with customer service and maintained relationships with travel agents. He has lived abroad in Germany and Sweden and counts the former’s Island of Gotland, Lofoten Island in Norway, Lisbon, Barcelona, Edinburgh and St. Petersburg as a few of his favorite European destinations.

Cox & Kings’ European private and Discovery Group Journeys are currently available for booking and are listed on the official website. For more information, visit
