Second 'Around the World by Private Jet' Tour Announced

Back in September, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts announced a partnership with TCS & Starquest Expeditions to offer a super-swank globetrotting adventure: Around the World by Private Jet. And since the first trip sold out surprisingly quickly, a second departure has now been scheduled.

And if you think your clients will appreciate this chance to best Phileas Fogg by 58 days, book their tickets now: A mere two departures will be offered in 2012. The new second departure follows the same itinerary as the first, departing from Los Angeles on September 30, 2012 on a specially outfitted Boeing 757 for an epic 22-day adventure (Four Seasons style, of course) to Hawaii, French Polynesia, Australia, Bali, Thailand, India and Egypt before concluding in the United Kingdom on October 21, 2012.

The in-flight experience, provided by TCS & Starquest Expeditions, includes a one-to-five crew-to-traveller ratio and two-by-two VIP-style seating as well as expedited customs and immigration formalities wherever possible. On the ground, accommodations will be provided exclusively by Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts, as well as most of the dining experiences.

On-the-ground itineraries will showcase the local sights and specialties, while remaining flexible enough to accommodate personalized excursions. Highlights include: two of the world’s most active volcanoes in Hawaii, the vibrant coral gardens of the South Pacific, Sydney’s iconic buildings, Ayers Rock, Bali’s Goa Gajah (Elephant Cave) and Yeh Pulu temples, Thai cooking classes in Chiang Mai, Agra’s Taj Mahal, Mumbai’s Mani Bhavan Gandhi Museum, and a private, lantern-lit dinner amid the pyramids of Gîza.
