Private Jet Travel

The Ultimate in Convenience & Value
Traveling by private jet is by far the best way to reach many far-flung destinations in one itinerary, as it allows us to set our own schedules, fly direct and thus avoid layovers. We land in remote airports that are closer to hard-to-reach destinations, minimizing lengthy transfers and maximizing your time on land. We also have the flexibility and freedom to adjust the routing if needed—even while an expedition is in progress. And, by avoiding the hassles of commercial airports, you can enjoy expedited boarding, luggage handling, and customs and immigration formalities.

The Ultimate in Comfort & Service
As you are whisked from one destination to the next aboard our private jet, you’ll be treated to an array of amenities and services. Our specially outfitted jets are configured with custom-designed, well-spaced, leather seats in a 2x2 seating configuration. A dedicated, specially trained air crew offers the finest in service, with a staff-to-passenger ratio that is among the highest in the business. Educational briefings by our experts, as well as destination-specific movies and documentaries, are provided via the jet’s multi-media system, and our onboard jet library offers destination-specific books and other publications. Delicious meals and hors d’oeuvres are created by a dedicated expedition chef. Plus, a dedicated physician accompanies us throughout the journey.

The Ultimate in Security & Safety
We have complete control over the security and safety of our aircraft and baggage, going above and beyond industry standards. The expedition staff and flight crew, including a dedicated engineer, remains with you for the entire journey and does not change from flight-to-flight like commercial airlines. Our expedition staff and flight crew, including a chef and catering assistant, is the most experienced in the world when it comes to managing multi-destination, educational expeditions by private jet. In addition, a physician accompanies each expedition, ready to provide and coordinate healthcare services whenever and wherever they may be needed. Travel worry-free with a talented team of professionals who are renowned for their attention to detail, dedication to safety and security, and top-notch hospitality. They are well-versed in the special baggage screening and tagging protocol we require to assure baggage and aircraft security. Photo I.D. badges, tamper-evident seals, locks, and other items that are unique to these private jet journeys work together to help ensure a secure and safe expedition.
 


Q: You have 78 people onboard the jet, won’t this trip feel crowded and too much like a “group trip?”
A: The jet is a Boeing 757, which was originally designed to accommodate about 233 travelers, but for our expeditions, is specially configured to generously accommodate 78 travelers. So travelers on our expedition will enjoy a very spacious and comfortable interior. And the crew-to-traveler ratio is 1 to 5, so the service onboard the jet is highly personalized, Once on land, travelers break up into small groups, rarely touring with more than 15 others, and often much less than that – and are always accompanied with a dedicated, very knowledgeable guide. And there are multiple alternate and optional touring opportunities to further personalize the experience. When visiting a monument like the Taj Mahal, for example, all groups start in different locations to avoid the “group tour” feeling. The only time you are with the entire group is on the jet and at gala meals – which become a celebratory experience with everyone sharing highlights of their touring for the day.
Q: I have food allergies and special dietary issues. Can the staff accommodate these concerns?
A: Absolutely. We invite all travelers to provide detailed personal information prior to departure so that we may address any issues. We travel with a private chef aboard the jet who makes sure all food preferences are accommodated while on the private jet. We also have expert “advance” staff on the ground in each country working with all restaurant and hotel staff to further ensure all special requests are taken care of. You are in good hands.
Q: Do the seats on the jet lie down flat?
A: No. None of our flights are at night and all of our sleeping is done in the very best hotels available. Our seats are plush, leather, VIP-style “cradle” seats with ecomfort™ foam support which lean back 45 degrees; and have adjustable leg rests. The, seats resemble very comfortable LAZY boy recliners so if a traveler wants to, they can enjoy a nice nap onboard.
Q: How strenuous is this trip?
A: It is as strenuous as you want it to be. One or two of our small daily touring groups are for “slower-walker” groups, who have the opportunity to see and do what everyone else does, only at a more relaxed pace. In addition, we often have options for the “go-getter” group, that wants to hike to the top of the mountain and see and do everything. We create these trips for you, for you to customize in the style and manner in which you prefer.
Q: I’m concerned about getting all of the necessary visas for this trip as I travel a lot. Can you help me with this?
A: Yes! We use an excellent Washington, D.C.-based visa service, which provides a detailed visa kit complete with all forms, instructions, and even sample pages so all you have to do is “fill in the blanks.” The visa service can also obtain additional pages for your passport or procure a second passport for you if you are traveling close to the trip departure.
Q: There are so many different countries on this trip, what about packing and vaccinations?
A: We will send you detailed instructions on everything you need to know about preparing for this journey, including vaccinations, expected weather, packing list, shopping suggestions, and a detailed reading list to help you learn about the adventure before departing.
