Custom Luxury Tours
An Unexpected Bargain
If you took a luxury tour to South America, India or China, had your own driver and guide, breakfast daily and accommodation at the finest hotel, you would necessarily expect to pay a premium price for that quality of service.
Not necessarily so!
You might actually pay less than a similar group luxury tour that doesn’t have the personal attention or the flexibility. Experienced travelers are finding the rewards for customized touring to be genuinely positive. A custom luxury tour allows travelers to experience the best of a particular site, according to their personal preferences while a private driver and guide caters exclusively to their individual needs. With their private car, driver and guide, the traveler can choose when to begin the tour, spend more or less time at a particular site as they so choose and have the option of ending the day whenever they feel the urge to return to their luxurious accommodation.
All First Cabin group tours include the services of a tour manager, with breakfast and lunch meals daily, including the payment of all gratuities to all service personnel. On a custom tour, the client is met upon arrival in each city, escorted to all sites by private vehicle and personal guide, who later sees them off to their next destination. Breakfast meals are included; lunch and dinner meals are left for the traveler to choose and gratuities are left to the travelers’ discretion as well. This adjustment allows the traveler to receive the luxury of a privatized custom tour at a price that might actually be less than a similar group tour. Rather remarkable, really! First Cabin clients have grown to love the option.
Over these many years, First Cabin has established an outstanding rapport with the ground operators overseas, who take it upon themselves to make certain that First Cabin clientele are well cared for throughout the journey.
Leslie Eisen of Denver says, ‘I chose Nepal and Tibet with First Cabin. They assigned female guides for me throughout the journey; it was a marvelous experience.’ The Danzigers of New York comment, ‘Burma on custom tour was superb. Our personal guide Daniel accompanied us the entire journey doting on our every need. We still marvel at how First Cabin can offer such a luxurious experience for less than a group tour price for a similar journey. We say similar, since custom touring affords far greater flexibility and a much greater degree of personal attention. We give First Cabin superlatives across the board.
Hal David, an Academy Award Recipient for his song “Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head” writes, “On three occasions thus far, my wife and I have chosen First Cabin to arrange our custom tour to distant lands. On all of the trips we were thrilled with the services rendered, which really made our holidays very special.” Lisa Miller of Andavo Travel, California says, “I use First Cabin to assist in creating custom tours for my clientele. It has been a highly successful and rewarding experience.”
