Great Empires by Private Jet: Exploring Ancient Persia to the Mediterranean
Trace the rise and fall of some of history’s most fascinating civilizations on an epic journey by private jet to less traveled wonders, from Iran to Serbia and beyond. In the company of a dynamic team of National Geographic experts, follow in the footsteps of emperors and shahs, merchants and architects, invaders and exiles as we explore ancient cities and modern-day capitals. Traveling aboard our private jet, encounter the dazzling mosaics of Persian mosques, the Silk Road riches of Central Asia, and the medieval towns of the Balkans; and discover the vibrant traditions that have arisen at these crossroads of culture.
*We expect to operate this trip as planned, but we will continue to closely monitor events and will alter the Iran portion of the itinerary if necessary. In the event that we are unable to travel to Iran, we will visit Oman by private jet instead.
