Hand picked Journey Leaders
We have called on the best Journey Leaders to inspire and guide you through your trip of a lifetime. With years of experience between them they know the secret spots for the best gelato, or where to steal a photo opportunity away from the crowds. Liaising with English speaking guides who will share their wealth of local knowledge, you’re in safe hands every step of the way.
Feel like a local
With Constellation Journeys you will always have the peace of mind that you are being escorted every step of the way with the very best local guides at your service. Local knowledge and cultural immersion is key to delivering you the most authentic experience – and rest assured every guide from every country is ready to answer all your questions about history, the arts – and where to find the best cup of coffee.
A global degustation : on your terms
From fine dining to canapes and cocktails, fresh rice paper rolls to cinnamon fragranced tagines, we are taking you on a culinary journey to celebrate the flavours from every corner of the globe. When it comes to dining, we believe that variety is the spice of life. At Constellation Journeys, we understand that sometimes you seek a lavish banquet under the stars and at other times, you’d rather stop off for a lighter lunch that doesn’t get in the way of a day of discovery. If you’ve been in the air all day enjoying the hospitality on board, you might not feel like a substantial meal when you land– so in places like Hanoi and New York, we have organised cocktail parties with canapes to toast our arrival. We think we’ve got the balance just right.
When we do celebrate those once in a life time dining experiences, we don’t hold back. We’ve curated memories that are sure to linger forever – in the best possible way. Prior to your theatre experience, you will bask in the bright lights of the city with a dinner on New York’s famous Broadway. We bring the flavours of Cuba to life under the stars of one of her grandest plazas and are seduced by the flavours of old Morocco on a Bedouin dining experience simmering in the sumac and star anise of a Marrakech twilight. It’s all about bringing you the freedom of choice and flexibility to dine as you like, whatever your indulgence.
If you’re journeying solo you’ll never feel alone, unless of course you want to be. Our Journey Leaders are always ready to join you for a chat or a meal and travelling with likeminded individuals, you are sure to make long lasting friendships. What better way to introduce yourself and set the tone than with our Solo Traveller evenings, yours to attend if you wish.
The Constellation Concierge Service
Imagine the freedom and relaxation of never having to worry about carrying your cases. That’s what Constellation Journeys are proud to offer. As if by magic you will find your luggage outside your room shortly after your arrival, and picked up and whisked to the next destination before you depart. Which leaves you time for the more important things, like shopping or sightseeing.
A La Carte options
We appreciate that not everyone wants the same thing from their holiday. Some guests like walking tours, while others prefer shopping days. Some are looking for the great outdoors, while others prefer museums and galleries. Celebrating the delights of difference, we are proud to present our A La Carte options, inviting you to build your own holiday on top of our core touring experiences, with a range of included enhancements to suit every taste. A La Carte options are indicated by this symbol throughout the itinerary.
Intimate group touring
Our generous ratio of staff to guests will ensure that you get the personal attention you deserve, with your every need more than catered for. Working on our own schedule, you will never feel rushed around the sites, with enough time to stop and smell the flowers – and have all your questions answered. Fully air conditioned transport in every destination will ensure you feel relaxed right from the moment you step outside the hotel, especially as our sightseeing vehicles are not filled to capacity.
Limitless luggage allowance
Always dreamed of taking home an authentic Moroccan magic carpet from Marrakech, or going wild on a shopping spree at Bloomingdales in NYC, but unsure if it would fit within your luggage weight allocation? We have good news. When you have your own private jet, these things don’t have to be a concern anymore. We invite you to shop to your heart’s content without worrying how you are going to get everything home – and rest assured that our fantastic team will even carry your bags for you – oh this is the life!
Doctor on call
For your peace of mind, we have invited a fully qualified doctor onto our private jet for the duration of the voyage. Of course, we’re not saying any of us will need it, but in our experience, travellers benefit from this peace of mind when exploring far flung corners of the globe. Your health and wellbeing is our paramount priority.
The Fast Track
