About

Prior Knowledge

Travel has a profound power; it connects us deeply and makes us think like global citizens.  It’s an effect that has never been more important than it is now.

Prior Knowledge was created to tell this most human story, and to bring it to life for discerning travelers.  We are merging editorial and experiential and reimagining the role of travel magazine and travel agency.  At Prior Knowledge, we are agents of experience and culture, narrators of the authentic, bringing once unimaginable access to bear to create the truly unforgettable.

Founded by travel, food and style editor, David Prior, Prior Knowledge is the materialization of his search for the best the world has to offer.  He knows how to edit a place and celebrate what is endemic to it.  After more than a decade spent largely on the road, David’s global network of food, travel, and design industry insiders is at once exclusive and far-reaching.   

It’s through this network that Prior Knowledge provides access to some of the world’s more challenging destinations – whether that be due to geographical, logistical, or cultural barriers – and reintroduces travelers to under-appreciated corners of more oft-traveled countries. Every Prior Knowledge experience is supported by a local team who are there to ensure every need – no matter how unusual or unexpected – will be attended to in the most seamless way possible.
