Announced in October and priced from $1.5 million for as many as eight travelers, the trip includes exclusive experiences such as a private meal at the top of the Great Wall and after-hours tours of the Hagia Sophia and the Louvre.

    Departing in February, Four Seasons Hotels and Resorts’ Rediscover the Americas (www.fourseasons.com) is a 17-night private-jet journey that will visit seven destinations throughout the Americas and the Caribbean. The trip (from $62,950 per person) will fly 56 guests in a custom-configured Boeing 757 to Four Seasons properties in locations including Argentina, Costa Rica, and Nevis.
