In our last edition of Elegant Traveller we revealed some fascinating insights by Richard Butler, an experienced TCS World Travel Expedition Leader with over 60 private jet expeditions to his name. Within our latest edition, we are delighted to introduce a new TCS World Travel Journey departing this August – Kingdoms And Cultures of Eurasia by Private Jet. Boasting a custom-configured Boeing 757 for just 52 guests, travellers can enjoy the convenience of travelling direct to remote private locations and private airports, all whilst relaxing in Italian-leather flatbed seats, with ample personal space, and the reassurance of an on board doctor and executive chef.
Featuring a path-less-travelled, with beguiling stays in destinations such as Lithuania, Kyrgystan, Kazakhstan, Iran and Albania, this culturally-rich odyssey celebrates the hidden treasures of secluded nations and includes visits to stunning UNESCO World Heritage Sites in Lithuania and Iran, in addition to beguiling museums, historic monasteries and awe-inspiring cathedrals. This journey is designed for clients eager to explore ancient treasures, appreciate architectural masterpieces and gain insight into early civilisations – all whilst travelling and staying in luxurious style, being seamlessly escorted and expertly guided, throughout.
Starting in Lisbon, guests can compare the contemporary and historic city landmarks whilst enjoying the luxurious hospitality of Four Seasons Hotel Ritz Lisbon, before travelling to the medieval city of Vilnus in Lithuania for an enlightening two-night-stay admiring the treasures of the UNESCO World Heritage Site of Old Town, strolling through the 16th century Gates of Dawn and admiring the picturesque Cathedral Square. Guests depart from the comfort of the Kempinski Hotel Cathedral Square, for the foothills of the Tian Shan Mountains in Kyrgyzstan, travelling along the ancient Silk Road and learning about the nomadic Kyrgyz lifestyle. Next, is the gleaming skyline of Central Asia’s newest capital, Astana, where travellers can explore the Palace of Peace and Reconciliation, plus see Central Asia’s largest synagogue. Isfahan, in Iran, with its impressive city square and Shah Mosque, a UNESCO World Heritage site, follows with further onward stops including the beautiful Hajar Mountains of Oman, experiencing a traditional dhow cruise and desert safari whilst staying at the sensational Six Senses Zighy Bay. Intriguing Tirana and Beret within Albania, then Romania with its painted frescoes of the Humor Monastery, follow. With a finale of absorbing Basque Country heritage and delicious Spanish cuisine preceding a memorable experience within the terraced vineyards of Douro Valley, in Portugal - before the journey’s conclusion in Lisbon.

By combining luxury jet travel with world-class hotels and extraordinary experiences, guests are assured of impeccable service with fully inclusive, fully escorted and meticulously planned itineraries.
