Overview
  • Join us on an extraordinary Around the World by Private Jet adventure to explore the most treasured and legendary places on Earth—sites that have captured the imagination for centuries. There's nothing quite like private jet travel aboard our custom-outfitted Boeing 757, which allows you to avoid the hassles of commercial airports and enjoy the gracious hospitality and efficiency of an experienced and devoted expedition staff and flight crew. During our luxury jet tour, you’ll visit five continents, nine countries, and 12 World Heritage sites. Climb the terraced steps of the ancient Inca citadel, Machu Picchu, then feel the protective gaze of the Easter Island moai statues. Bask in the radiant beauty of tropical Samoa, and experience the natural treasures of the Great Barrier Reef. You’ll welcome the sun among Angkor Wat’s splendid temples and watch it set amid Africa’s greatest concentration of wildlife in Tanzania, on the Serengeti or Ngorongoro Crater. Stand enthralled before the majesty of the Taj Mahal and Rajasthan’s “Pink City” of Jaipur. Your journey continues to Egypt to visit the tombs of divine pharaohs and see the famous Pyramids and then to Morocco to explore the medieval city of Fez with its colorful souks.
