From London, the trip continues on to Paris, Dubai, Mumbai, Jaipur, Udaipur, Hong Kong, Tokyo, Honolulu, San Francisco, Chicago, and New York. Each private excursion is customized to satisfy the individual desires of the guests throughout the 28-day vacation. Highlights include a camel safari in Dubai (image shown); dinner at Le Jules Verne restaurant in the Eiffel Tower; and a stay at Rambagh Palace in Jaipur with rejuvenation therapies in the tented spa and a private visit to the Gem Palace to see the jewels of the maharajas. The bonus: 10 percent of the cost of the trip will be donated to the Elton John AIDS Foundation. (212.515.5704)
