A global leader in luxury travel, Travcoa has been named as a top international tour operator by such leading travel publications as Conde Nast Traveler, Travel + Leisure and a host of others. And it's no wonder, given the striking array of destinations, itineraries and accommodations on offer.
Perhaps none is more awe-inspiring (or bucket list completing) than the amazing Around the World by Luxury Private Jet tour – 24 days of jaw-dropping destinations that are sure to complete everyone's must-see list. Among the tour's highlights are visits to the Taj Mahal, a game drive in the Serengeti National Park and snorkeling along Australia's Great Barrier Reef and that’s just a warm up.
Kick off your once-in-a-lifetime experience with a visit to Cusco and an unforgettable ride aboard the historic, luxury Hiram Bingham train to Machu Picchu. This UNESCO World Heritage Site, located in Peru’s Sacred Valley, showcases the Inca Empire at the peak of its power. The next stop on this unforgettable journey is the famed Easter Island, where guests will be able to explore the Rapa Nui National Park and the Rano Raraku quarry, home to hundreds of abandoned moai.
From Easter Island, it's off to Apai, Samoa, where visitors can imagine themselves a character in Treasure Island while they explore Robert Louis Stevenson's former estate.
Snorkeling along the Great Barrier Reef is the next adventure in store for travelers on this dream itinerary. Once there, divers have the opportunity to explore the world’s largest collection of coral reefs, with more than 400 types of coral and 1,500 species of fish. Or, for those who prefer their adventure on dry land, a visit to Daintree Rainforest, which is home to the world’s oldest surviving rainforest
From there, it’s off to the famed temples of Angkor Wat. Built by the Khmer Empire between 802 and 1220 AD, the 400 square-kilometer complex of temples took 300,000 workers to build and is surely one of the most awe-inspiring man-made wonders in the world. For those who may have already journeyed to Angkor Wat, a visit to the capital Phnom Penh is an option for those who wish to explore the city that was once known as the “Peal of Asia.”

The Taj Mahal, Emperor Akbar's grant tomb, is the next stop on the itinerary. One of the greatest architectural treasures of the world, this white marble mausoleum took more than 20,000 people and 1,000 elephants to construct over the course of 22 years and continues to take breaths away hundreds of years later.
From there it's off to the Serengeti Plain to spot the Big Five–lions, leopards, Cape buffalos, elephants and rhinos–or perhaps a visit to Tanzania's Ngorongoro Crater, the world’s largest unbroken caldera.
The Lost City of Petra, which was half built and half carved in the red cliffs, is a must see. And no visit would be complete without an action-packed 4x4 excursion to the stark landscapes of Wadi Rum.
The last stop before heading for home is the exotic city of Marrakech, Morocco, where visitors will be able to explore the medinas, and see the Jemaa el-Fna Square and enjoy the beauty of the Majorelle Gardens.
Guests enjoy the finest accommodations on each leg of the journey as a Boeing 757 private jet whisks them to their next destination, all the while taking advantage of the ultimate in comfort and convenience that only private luxury travel affords.
