The program is a part of a Connoisseurs' Circuit which are designed for those who have travelled to the prime "wish list" destinations like South-East Asia, West Europe, the USA...; they have arrived in life and appreciate the good things that the world has to offer. You like the exclusiveness for your holiday with your close family and friends to bond better, away from the daily routines; to travel on your dates of convenience and customise your holiday to the extent possible.
The itineraries are designed for private holidays and not with large cosmopolitan groups. While the programs are not escorted, you don't need handholding. There is of course step-on guides for the sightseeing programs. The programs can be extended, more places or options can be added.
