    • Explore Peru's less-traveled northern coast

      If you’ve already visited Machu Picchu, consider traveling to Peru’s North Coast, a region filled with stunning natural scenery, deeply rooted traditions and archaeological wonders from several pre-Inca cultures. Guests choosing this alternate will travel separately by local air and meet up with the rest of the group before heading to our next destination.

    Peru to Easter Island: 6H 50M (Includes charter flight)
  3. Investigate the mystery of the moai on this remote Pacific island

    Fiji to Australia: 5H 5M
  5. Immerse yourself in the marine life of the Great Barrier Reef

    The northeast coast of Australia is home to some of the world’s most unique natural wonders. A UNESCO World Heritage site, the Great Barrier Reef is the world’s largest coral reef system, composed of roughly 3,000 individual reefs and 900 islands stretching for over 1,600 miles.

    Australia to Cambodia: 7H 35M
  6. Absorb the majesty of Angkor Wat

    The city of Angkor Thom represents ancient urban planning at its best. This “city of temples” incorporates canals, large water reservoirs and, of course, temples, including the famous Angkor Wat, Bayon and Ta Prohm.

    Cambodia to India: 5h 45M (Includes day trip to Agra)
  7. Marvel at a monumental testament to enduring love

    See perhaps the world’s most famous building, the Taj Mahal, the white marble mausoleum that took more than 22 years and 20,000 people to build. Then immerse yourself in the vibrant tapestry of culture, cuisine and architecture of Jaipur.

    India to Tanzania: 8H 55M (Includes charter flight)
  8. The Serengeti is one of the world’s greatest wildlife destinations

    Throughout the year, more than one million wildebeest, accompanied by gazelles and zebras, make a circuitous, perilous trek across the Serengeti Plain, seeking out fresh grazing and water. Along the way, they encounter lions, leopards, crocodiles and other carnivores always on the hunt, resulting in a primal spectacle unlike any other. Because this cycle is continuous, the Serengeti is always teeming with a dizzying array of wildlife.

    • Seek out the legendary big five in the Ngorongoro Crater

      If you’d like to see a different side of Tanzania, opt to visit the Ngorongoro Crater, the largest unbroken caldera in the world. Guests choosing this alternate will travel separately by local air and meet up with the rest of the group before heading to our next destination.

    Tanzania to Jordan: 6H 25M (Includes charter flight)
  9. Visit the Lost City of Petra, famous for its rock-cut architecture

    Nearly two-thirds of Jordan is covered by great expanses of arid desert. Gold-tinged red sandstone cliffs arch up into the sky, while plateaus eroded by winds stretch toward the horizon. In the middle of this stark beauty lies Petra. Petra’s architecture reflects a fusion of ideas and styles, combining traditional Nabataean rock-cut buildings with Hellenistic façades featuring columns and intricate sculptures.

    Jordan to Morocco: 6H 50M
  10. Experience a feast of the senses in the imperial city of Marrakech

    Lying in the fertile Haouz plain at the foot of the Atlas Mountains, Marrakech has some of the most impressive examples of Islamic architecture in existence. Perhaps the highlight of Marrakech, Jemaa el-Fna square is the heart of one of the most vibrant and historic medinas in the world. This ancient walled quarter is filled with narrow, maze-like streets crowded with merchants, musicians and entertainers.

    Morocco to Florida: 11H 30M (Includes tech stop)
  11. Recap your journey around the world with new friends

    We depart Morocco and fly to Orlando, where we will enjoy a farewell dinner at the Hyatt Regency. You will return home on your independent flight the following day.

Our Private Jet Experience

The moment you board our private jet, you can breathe deep and leave your worries at the door. The hidden costs of international travel, such as transit time and airport delays, cut into quality vacation time. Flying direct to most destinations reduces overall travel time, maximizing the time spent exploring each iconic destination.

Welcome Aboard

Throughout your flight, you’ll have highly trained staff and crew at your service. They’ll know your name, likes and dislikes, so you can have the most personalized experience possible. All in-flight meals and beverages are included, as well as a selection of beer, wine and spirits. In addition, we can accommodate your food allergies or special dietary requirements.

Expedition Details

Relax, discover and explore on an expertly curated journey, meticulously produced by a passionate team of seasoned world travelers. Learn more about the services we offer—before, during and after your trip, as well as what to expect on our expeditions.

This once-in-a-lifetime trip is the perfect way to spend quality time with your partner or to treat yourself to an adventure you’ll never forget. Adults of all ages take our trips, sometimes with a companion and sometimes by themselves. You will meet fellow guests with a curiosity about the world and come away with unforgettable memories and special friendships. It can also help you memorably mark a special occasion, whether it’s an anniversary, birthday, retirement, honeymoon or other milestone.

The minimum age to take our expeditions is 12, but we will consider younger guests on a case-by-case basis.

Shortly after booking, your guest services manager will mail you more details about your trip. This dedicated professional will be your main point of contact. He or she will provide you additional information leading up to your departure and is available to answer any questions via phone or email.

Prior to departure, you will receive a set of amenities for your trip. These may include a wheeled bag, a backpack, packing cubes and other useful travel items.

Our trips are a unique opportunity for like-minded travelers who are interested in learning and exploring to come together. The strong friendships forged on our trips continue long after guests return home and open the door to more travel adventures.

On expeditions with 50 or more travelers, daily activities will be divided into intimate groups of 6 to 12, so you never feel like you’re part of a crowd. On all trips, we offer numerous activity options at each destination such as: guided small-group sightseeing, curated shopping, and exclusive visits to museums and landmarks. Other examples include more active options like hikes or snorkeling, as well as unforgettable moments like an intimate guided exploration of Angkor Wat and our hot air balloon ride over the Serengeti. 

TCS World Travel is committed to maintaining the quality and safety of the expedition for all participants. Overall, our trips give you the freedom to set your own pace. Each destination on every itinerary offers a variety of options with different activity levels. In some, you may only be walking for short periods of time and have more downtime between excursions, while in others, you may spend the entire day touring or walking over uneven terrain. You may, of course, choose to have a day off and relax at any location.

On all our expeditions, you can expect the following:

  • Uneven ground/frequent walking up to one mile at any given time
  • Walking up the steps to the jet, as many foreign airports do not have jetways
  • Trip pace—only one to three nights in each stop with some late-night activities and early-morning departures
  • Time zone changes
  • High altitude (some expeditions)
  • Changes to your ‘normal’ routine: unique cuisine, frequent packing/unpacking

We will make reasonable efforts to accommodate participants with special needs; however, we cannot accommodate wheelchairs or walkers. If you require a slower pace, extra assistance, or the use of a cane or walking stick, arrangements can be made for private touring at each destination. Any extra cost for such arrangements will be the responsibility of the participant.

Trip Pace Definitions

These icons refer to the overall pace of the trip and not to specific activities at each destination. For example, an expedition classified as moderate or relaxed in overall pace can still offer active options such as hiking or snorkeling.

  • Active Pace: Almost every day fully scheduled, and/or longer flight durations; expedition crosses multiple time zones
  • Moderate Pace: Downtime opportunities every three or four days, and/or shorter flight durations; crosses fewer time zones
  • Relaxed Pace: Many opportunities for relaxation, and/or three-night minimum stays in most destinations

Destination Safety
Before TCS travels to any destination, we vet it for safety. We and our consultant medical advisors, Dr. Thomas Burke and the BostonMD team, closely monitor all health situations. We monitor the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), the US Department of State, the UK Foreign and Commonwealth Office and other third-party destination experts, and are consulting with our trusted local suppliers to evaluate travel to all locations featured on our expeditions. 
 
The beauty of private jet travel is the ease of pivoting. If we need to change an itinerary for any reason, we can use our contacts in countries worldwide to assist us with making alternate arrangements for our group. These changes could be made well in advance of arrival or even while we are in the air en-route to a given location.
 
On-Trip Resources
On many expeditions, a trip physician will be available to consult with you at your request about general medical health issues such as upper-respiratory infections or gastro-intestinal upsets, which are not uncommon on this type of trip. Should you become seriously ill en route, the trip physician will be able to liaise with local physicians at your request and, if necessary, your medical providers back home, to assist in determining what further care you may require.
 
On-Trip Activity Level
This is an active program which requires a serious health assessment. There will be walking excursions at nearly every location, and you will need to climb stairs at some of the sites, as well as when you board and disembark the aircraft. There are some airports where you will be responsible for transporting your small wheeled overnight bag. We will have some early-morning departures and late-night activities, and may travel through multiple time zones.

To help counterbalance the carbon footprint that results from flying, TCS World Travel offsets carbon emissions for all flights. TCS has partnered with Sustainable Travel International, a global non-profit organization with 15 years of experience developing successful carbon offset programs for the travel industry. Sustainable Travel International has calculated the carbon footprint of all TCS jet trips starting in 2019 and purchases highly vetted carbon offsets equivalent to that amount.
