Around the world in a luxury private jet for Dh250,000
Dubai: The Omeir Travel Agency (OTA) in Abu Dhabi is offering a tour package wherein travellers will be taken on a dream holiday, covering ten "legendary destinations" across the globe via private jet, starting in late 2012.
Remote islands, ancient monuments, exotic jungles, and bustling cities are all on the itinerary, including the Pyramids in Egypt, the Taj Mahal in India, and volcanoes in Hawaii.
Here comes the bad news — the chance to make the trip is limited to only 78 people who will zip to these exotic locations on board a VIP jet.
Bookings for the 22-day world tour are now open and a number of Emiratis and expats have already shown interest, according to OTA.
The trip costs Dh250,000 per person.
Taking off in Los Angeles, guests will stay about two days in each destination — Kona on the big island of Hawaii, Bora Bora in French Polynesia, iconic Australian destinations of Sydney and Ayers Rock, the Indonesian island of Bali, Chiang Mai in Thailand, the Taj Mahal in Agra and Mumbai in colourful India, the Pyramids and the Sphinx in ancient Egypt and, finally, cosmopolitan London, UK.
Travellers will be accompanied by "renowned experts" sharing their knowledge and enthusiasm for the places and cultures. They will also be able to set their own sight-seeing agenda. Each stop-over includes lodging and dining in a Four Seasons hotel or resort.
The custom-made private jet features a spacious cabin with a plush interior, VIP-style leather seating, a library, and even a chef and a personal luggage assistant.
According to John Kailath, VIP Holidays manager at OTA, the appetite for exclusive tours is still strong despite global financial worries. "There is especially high demand for once-in-a-lifetime styled journeys… Our elite clients are looking for something exceptional that offers memorable experiences."
The costs will be "way more expensive if you were to plan something like this on your own, and it would be much more complicated too", added Reene, a senior marketing executive in OTA.

4. Sydney and Ayers Rock, Australia
