Around the world by private jet, leaving from Canada in November
Surprisingly affordable, always an adventure
When people think about hopping on a private jet for a dream vacation, it remains just that, a dream.
Now Travel Guild Inc. is offering you the chance of a lifetime! Climb
aboard a VIP Boeing 737 for an epic around the world adventure in 25
days. The flight originates in Calgary, stops in Kelowna to pick up more
passengers, and on the way back, drops off at Toronto, Calgary, and
Kelowna International airports. In between, it is nothing but pure
But wait, a private jet… around the world… it’s got to be very
expensive… right? Wrong! Consider the out of pocket costs for almost a
month of five star accommodations and restaurants, not to mention air
fare, transportation costs, guided sightseeing tours, exotic evening
events, visas and tips, entertainment and shows, and a safari! One would
think an adventure like this would be well over $2000 a day. It’s not.
This around the world by private jet vacation is $32,995 US and a very
affordable $2,995 supplement for the single traveler. Couples, groups
and singles will enjoy meeting and traveling with like-minded
Just imagine, you and 71 other guests, cruising around the world in a
jet designed to hold 170 people. This 737 has been outfitted with a
private bar, plenty of leg room and all the comforts of home. Best of
all - there's no rushing to catch an early flight as all flights leave
at a decent hour. It's the same plane, and same captain and crew on all
flights with a unique experience every day.
You depart on November 3rd from Kelowna, BC, with a stop to pick up
passengers in Calgary, AB. The jet then only flies west to ensure plenty
of daylight and little to no jet lag. First stop is Anchorage, Alaska,
where you’ll have panoramic views as far as the eye can see. After a
good night’s sleep, it’s of to exotic Seoul, South Korea, the most
vibrant city in Asia. Next up is Kota Kinabalu, Borneo, Malaysia where
you can relax and watch the sun set over the South China Sea. Then it’s
off to Singapore, to be inspired, just as Hemmingway and Kipling were
all those years ago. Next stop - Jaipur, Ranthambore National Park,
India. Ride an elephant through the streets then prepare for a safari in
search of the Bengal Tiger or if you prefer, visit the Taj Mahal in
You go from natural jungle to skyscrapers aplenty as you visit and tour
Abu Dhabi or head over to Dubai, United Arab Emirates. Then it’s back to
a slower pace as you explore the medieval city of Valletta in Malta on
the Mediterranean Sea. You can play it again Sam at the next stop in
Casablanca, Morocco with a side excursion to Rabat. Your final
destination is the Great Continental Divide at Rykjavik, Iceland where
you can soak in the geothermal Blue Lagoon.
Just as you are getting used to this lifestyle, it's time to return home
on November 27th. The jet can drop you off in Toronto, Calgary or
Kelowna and you'll arrive home having seen some of most beautiful places
on earth in fine style. This special adventure is limited to 72 guest
and these tours fill up fast, with many seats already sold. Call
