A Fairytale Experience
You’ll feel like you’ve stepped into a storybook when you’re surrounded by the softly flickering candles used to decorate the grounds of a palace. Statues of Hindu gods such as Ganesh and Shiva stand among garlands of fragrant flowers and bright paper lanterns. The air is filled with the sounds of music and the scent of incense. You and your 57 traveling companions have been placed here just to see Diwali, the Hindu festival of lights, in its native India. You’re viewing the sights of the subcontinent in the lap of luxury thanks to Captain Choice.
A Journey in Supreme Style Captain Choice
A country of India’s size is daunting. Seeing everything from northern Delhi to southern Kochi by commercial plane may take weeks, or even months. However, if you travel in a private business jet, not only will you avoid the crowds and arrive at your destination ready for adventure, but you will also be able to take in the country’s most stunning and diverse sights and attractions. The Captain’s Choice ‘Spirit & Colours of India’ cruise is a 15-day adventure packed with one-of-a-kind activities and this is your method of transportation.
Experiencing the Heart of India Captain Choice
In addition to the traditional Diwali activities, you will also participate in a special Aarti ceremony on the banks of the Ganges in Varanasi, India’s holiest river. As the sun sets, you’ll make your way to Dashashwamedh Ghat, where you’ll be serenaded by drummers. In Jaipur, you may view the “Pink City” from a hot air balloon for a unique perspective. In addition, you may get an Ayurvedic treatment in Kerala, the state that gave birth to the practice, and then learn the ins and outs of South Indian cookery during a demonstration. A trip to India isn’t complete without seeing the Taj Mahal, the emperor’s brilliant marble love letter to his bride. A professional photographer will accompany you and show you the ideal locations to take pictures of the monument at different times of day.
Luxury in Every Detail Captain Choice
No matter which small-group itinerary you select with Captain’s Choice, everything from your premium transportation to your meals and lodgings is taken care of for you. Some of the world’s most luxurious hotels may be found in India, including royal hotels in the center of lakes and opulent spa resorts.
African Adventures: Wildlife and Wonders
An elegant safari lodge awaits you on the ‘African Adventures by Private Jet and Rovos Rail’ trip, followed by a night on the luxurious Pride of Africa sleeper train. There are few experiences on this trip that can compare to flying over Victoria Falls in a helicopter, hearing the thunder of thousands of wildebeest during their annual migration (you’ll have a front-row seat), or seeing mountain gorillas in Rwanda’s Volcanoes National Park.
Egyptian Odyssey Captain Choice
on addition, on ‘A Journey of Gods,’ you’ll cruise down Egypt’s most well-known river on the Sanctuary Nile Adventurer, catching sight of ancient pyramids and temples along the way. Enjoy an intimate meal in front of Luxor’s Temple of Ramses III after meeting Egyptologists onboard and onshore.
Culinary Delights Captain Choice
In fact, the Captain’s Choice itineraries always include delicious and unique meals. A magnificent gala supper at the Oberoi Rajvilas resort will round off your Diwali celebrations in India. While in Tuscany, you will be treated to a private wine tasting and lunch, as well as a culinary session where you may learn to prepare traditional Italian dishes. You may have some Turkish pleasure and strong Turkish coffee in the original establishment where it was created in Istanbul.
These are the kinds of activities that the vast majority of tourists have no idea exist and so never get the chance to attempt. But you will have access to the unusual and exotic, since your Captain’s Choice staff is available around the clock to expose the unknown and produce the special.
Safety and Comfort at the Forefront
Many trips also include opportunities to get out and stretch your legs with hikes along breathtaking trails, and you’ll always have a Tour Manager and a Tour Doctor to keep you safe and comfortable no matter how you choose to travel (private jet, safari jeep, cruise, train, or coach).
From Seven Continents to Your Own Backyard
Since Captain’s Choice travels to all seven continents, many of these routes are overseas. The ‘Weekend in the Outback by Private Plane’ is only one domestic option. This itinerary is a rapid tour of outback Australia, taking you to places like Broken Hill, Coober Pedy, and Birdsville before flying over the enormous Kati Thanda-Lake Eyre and Marree Man. That’s the equivalent of seeing three states in two days, each with an abundance of attractions.
Seeing the World in a New Light
Simply said, every trip you take should be a once-in-a-lifetime experience that alters your perspective on the world.
