An Inspiring Expedition

experience hidden cultural gems alongside experts who bring
them to vivid life.

One of the great rewards of a lifetime of travelling is that there are always new places to explore and new wonders to
experience. In creating this Inspiring Expedition by Private Jet, I challenged myself to include many destinations I had
yet to visit, from Benin in West Africa to the Ladakh region of India, and to reveal these places through the kind of
insider-access opportunities only A&K can arrange. Around the World with Geoffrey Kent is not about checking items
off a list — it is about discovering the authentic heart of destinations that most travellers completely overlook, and doing
so in a way that never sacrifices comfort and style.

Join me, my hand-picked Tour Management team and a dedicated flight crew on board a chartered 757 with first-class,
fully lie-flat seats, as we circle the globe unveiling one awe-inspiring destination after another. Dine in a 400-year-old
samurai fortress, experience a private neighborhood party hosted by a celebrity chef in Hanoi and learn the practice of
Voodoo at a ceremony put on just for us. Throughout our journey, we will meet extraordinary people, take part in age-
old traditions as locals do and enjoy privileged access to experiences no traveller will want to miss.

I hope you join me on this truly unique adventure.
