With around-the-world private jet tours drawing plenty of attention from well-heeled travellers, French luxury travel operator Safrans du Monde is offering Grand Classiques World Tour, a 22-day journey that begins and ends in Paris.
A Private jet world tour in 22 days
It’s a true around-the-world trip, with multiple days spent at each destination. The first stop is Rio de Janeiro, where guests will visit the famed Ipanema and Copacabana beaches, as well as Sugarloaf Mountain. Next up is Cusco, Peru, the gateway to Machu Picchu, followed by Chile’s Easter Island for a double dose of ancient history.
A trip to the ancient wonders of the world
The voyage continues across the Pacific with a stop in French Polynesia before making its way to Sydney, where guests will take a private tour of the Sydney Opera House. Then, guests are flown northwest to Hanoi and Ha Long Bay in Vietnam and Siem Reap in Cambodia to see Angkor Wat. And the last leg includes two other ancient wonders: the Taj Mahal in Agra, India, and Petra in Jordan, plus the otherworldly desert of Wadi Rum.
What sets this private jet tour apart from its competitors?
When guests aren’t on Safrans du Monde’s private Airbus A340, where they’re treated to fine dining — Champagne included, of course — and all-business-class, lie-flat seats, they’re hosted in five-star hotels in each destination.
What sets Safrans du Monde apart from other private jet tour operators is that there are two classes of service: Club Safrans and Première Safrans. While both are all-inclusive, Première Safrans takes the journey to another level, offering first-class seats on the plane rather than business class, exclusive excursions, and ultra-luxurious hotel stays. Club Safrans is, of course, still quite extravagant, but is nearly USD 40,000 (INR 32,72,002) less.
For the Grand Classiques World Tour, which runs from October 24 to November 14 this fall, Club Safrans costs about USD 75,000 (INR 61,34,853) per person and Première Safrans costs USD 115,000 (94,06,775) per person; make your booking now at safransdumonde.com.
