At a Glance

“You only live once.” That expression was never more apt than right now. Fulfill a dream and be part of our journey by private jet plane. Beginning and ending in London, you’ll connect the dots on some of the world’s greatest icons and destinations: Stonehenge, the Great Pyramids, Petra, the Taj Mahal, the Jantar Mantar observatory, Angkor Wat and the temples of Borobudur. We have hand-picked our most knowledgeable instructors and planned extraordinary excursions, providing special insight into some of humankind’s greatest achievements. Similar experiences cost two to three times as much, so if you are looking for the learning adventure of a lifetime, this is your chance.
Activity Level
