Update: In an earlier version of the story, the fall in Cox & Kings’ stock was not adjusted as per the company’s stock split in 2011. This has been corrected. We regret the error.
Having survived 260 years, Cox & Kings is the world’s oldest travel company. It pre-dates the formation of the United States of America, has survived two world wars, and almost all the global economic meltdowns in the history of modern civilisation.
