Captivating Cultures: A Grand Tour from Rome to Rajasthan by Private Jet

Istanbul, Turkey

Escorted Group Tours

On this luxurious holiday, we’ll be whisked away on a privately chartered jet for a grand and unique journey. We’ll begin in the Eternal City of Rome and conclude in mesmerising Istanbul, stopping along the way in equally show-stopping Montenegro, Jordan, India and Uzbekistan. Staying in exquisite hotels and dining at the most elegant and authentic restaurants, we’ll also be treated to a dazzling array of once-in-a-lifetime experiences, many of which will be exclusive to our group. We’ll visit the Vatican before it opens, cruise the breathtaking Bay of Kotor, see iconic Petra and gaze at the stars under Wadi Rum’s desert skies. India promises tours of the Palace of the Winds, game drives in search of tigers and dawn views of the Taj Mahal from our hotel room. We’ll dine overlooking Uzbekistan’s beautiful city of Samarkand and explore Istanbul’s highlights before a farewell dinner to remember. We hope you’ll join us on this unmatched experience in the world of travel.
