What's on your life list? A safari in the Serengeti? The Sphinx in Egypt? Easter Island? The Great Barrier Reef? What if you could explore all of this (and much, much more) in three weeks? Now you can make it happen, and make it happen in style on our one-of-a-kind journey, Around the World by Private Jet.

What really happens on this kind of journey? Is there really time to learn anything? Is there time to meet any of the local people, to really connect? There sure is.

In 2009, Richard Kurin, Smithsonian's Under Secretary for History, Art, and Culture, led our journey and wrote seventeen blog posts about it. Click here to to read them.

In 2011, we're offering Around the World by Private Jet on Oct 28 - Nov 18, or Nov 1 - 22.

Where would you like to go most in the world? What's on your lifelist? Please share.
