Luxury specialists Robb Report has announced the debut of their “Around the World with Robb Report: A Global Journey by Private Jet,” luxury voyage offering travel enthusiasts rare and exclusive experiences in some of the world’s most extraordinary destinations. Taking off from October 13 to November 4, 2016, this journey of a lifetime has been custom designed by Robb Report’s editorial staff and will be operated by the private-jet tour company TCS World Travel, which has nearly 25 years of experience curating personalized experiences and trips.
While the concept is not new since luxury hotel operator Four Seasons launched their private jet adventure, this new voyage brings with it the expertise right out of the pages of the Robb Report, taking travelers to several of the world’s most luxurious hotels, offering them insider experiences in the realms of luxury automobiles, jewelry, yachts, wine, wellness, and more.
“As editors, we look at travel in terms of story, and the narrative for this trip will follow a fascinating path through the seas of the South Pacific, the savannas of the Serengeti, and several other amazing destinations,” says Editorial Director Bruce Wallin. “From our festive send-off in Hawaii to the fitting finale at our Car of the Year event, the Around the World journey will be the ultimate experience for the luxury traveler.”
The trip is open to only 52 guests, who will fly around the world in a customized Boeing 757-200ER outfitted with 180-degree flatbed seats handcrafted in Italy. Onboard an executive chef as well as journey managers will be available to address to each traveler’s specific interests at every destination, ensuring a personalized experience for every guest.
Embarking from Honolulu, the global journey will take the 52 travelers to:
