Phileas Fogg, Jules Verne’s fictitious character, went Around the World in 80 Days, but thanks to TCS World Travel, you can do it in 20. Featuring a one-of-a-kind adventure, the exclusive private jet tour operator has teamed with SeaDream Yacht Club, the world’s leading luxury yachting operator, to offer an unforgettable 20-day, eight country luxury tour in May 2017.
“Over the past 25 years, TCS World Travel has partnered with some of the most renowned organizations in the world including Four Seasons, National Geographic Expeditions, and Smithsonian Journeys to create incredible vacations,” said TCS World Travel President Shelley Cline. “We are thrilled to partner with SeaDream Yacht Club to extend our journeys to the ocean with our first sea, sky, and land expedition to the Mediterranean and Africa.” The spectacular sea, sky and safari tour takes place May 5-24, 2017.
The highlights of this trip are eye-popping, as is the incredible price tag: A mere $107,000 per person. Add another $9,000 to that total if you’re traveling solo. Embark on your 20-day vintage voyage of discovery aboard a custom-configured Boeing 757 private jet with flatbed seats and all the luxuries imaginable. Here are a few highlights of the TCS World Travel 2017 Tour.

Explore Spain’s Costa Brava from the sea as you paddle around the glittering Bay of Roses and glide silently into some of the breathtaking narrow, steep-walled inlets.
Stroll the grand hallways and elegant rooms of the 17th-century Château de Flaugergues while sipping a glass of wine from the chateau’s vineyard, where grapes have been grown since Roman times.
