    Partnering with private jet travel operator TCS & Starquest expedition, luxury hotel brand Four Seasons will swaddle travelers in ultra-luxury with a pair of enviable tours in 2014.

    Two groups of 56 travelers, paying at least US$62,950 each, will embark on one of two private jet tours –- Rediscover the Americas and Around the World –- together with a private chef, physician, dedicated air crew, expedition managers and luggage handlers.

    It's another world onboard.

    Normally seating more than 200 passengers, the trip's Boeing 757 has been revamped for 56 passengers in a two-by-two plush seating arrangement. Global WiFi and a Four Seasons concierge desk will be available in-flight.

    The Rediscover the Americas tour includes seven destinations in the Americas geared toward beach and nature lovers.

    Itinerary activities include catamaran sailing to a protected beach in Nevis, visiting high-end shops with fashion designers and viewing the private art collection at Fortabat in Buenos Aires before it opens to the public.

    The Around the World tour repeats similar tours offered in 2012 and 2013.

    I object to the $7,650 single supplement, so I will not be participating on principle.

    I have to figure that ~$63k number is a very basic minimal excursion fare. Just based off the cost of long haul F that seems low.
