Last August, Isramworld introduced its Elite Series of
ultra-deluxe private tours to India with a series of stays in
top-level rooms and suites at the finest hotels. This year, the
company is expanding the successful concept to other countries like
China, Vietnam, Peru, Europe and Israel.
“The Elite Series is geared to the ultra-sophisticated traveler
and designed to fill a gap in the luxury travel market, said A. Ady
Gelber, the president and CEO of Isramworld.
All Elite Series trips include a private limousine with a driver
and a professional guide, both of whom accompany the passengers
from the moment of arrival to departure.
“No expense is spared,” said Gelber. “It’s always the best
accommodations with the best views and the best facilities.”
A suggested touring itinerary is provided (entrance fees are
included). Since the itinerary is merely a suggestion and the trip
is completely changeable on a daily basis, the guide will help
achieve clients’ desires. Typically, upon arrival and over the
first few days, the guide will access the clients’ energy levels
and speak to them about their wants and needs for the days
Suggested Elite Series itineraries include twelve nights in
Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Udaipur and Jodhpur. Clients can embark on an
elephant-back safari or accept an invitation to the retreat of the
Maharaja of Jodhpur.
An 11-night excursion in China includes suite accommodation in
Beijing, Xian, Yangtze River Cruise and Shanghai, along with a
private lunch in the Forbidden City and visits to the restricted
areas of the Xian excavations.
Clients may also enjoy a Beijing, Shanghai and Hong Kong
itinerary which includes nine nights in suites at Peninsula and The
Ritz-Carlton hotels, first- and business-class domestic flights,
private harbor cruises and a private Chinese cooking class.
A 10-night Vietnam package can include a private helicopter to
Halong Bay and suite accommodation in Ho Chi Minh City, Hoi An, Hue
“The Elite Series is all about a totally custom-made tour,
privately escorted and guided with everything included,” said
Gelber. “It’s also about enormous commissions for the agent.”
The Elite Series programs are priced from $8,988 to $15,465 per
