The World’s Only Luxury Tours by Private Jet
South American Odyssey Luxury Tour by Private Jet 2019 October 19 – November 2, 2019
Discovering Natural Wonders & Cultural Treasures
Dear friends, When I think of South America, I think of its ancient spiritual culture, its colonial influence, and its natural scenic wonders. You will see all these features encapsulated in the pages ahead, detailing our 2019 South America Journey by Private Jet. I recommend this tour to first timers to South America, as well as those who may have already visited in the past. During the sojourn to Colombia, Uruguay, Argentina, and Chile, you have an opportunity to learn about Spanish and Portuguese colonial history, visit artists’ studios and galleries, step inside a cathedral made of salt, see the world’s largest waterfall system, cruise along the South America’s southern coast, marvel at magnificent scenery, participate in wine tastings, attend private performances, and much more. Traveling by private jet makes this journey possible to accomplish with maximum time given to each destination and minimal travel time – on our own schedule. And you have the added advantage of having a select crew to make sure that each leg of your journey is comfortable and luxurious. Along the way, spend your nights in hotels chosen for their splendid locations, as well as their luxurious, yet authentic representation of the region. Encounters with local people, exhilarating excursions, fabulous cuisine and wines, and the attention of the Lakani Tour Managers, local guides, and lecturers complete this memorable trip. I hope you’ll join us. Heidi Lakani President P.S. I highly recommend you consider the extension to Easter Island. Its unique iconic statues are a must-see in my estimation.

One of the most thrilling aspects of travel is the opportunity to taste the local flavors of each destination. This is why Lakani includes the exclusive Dine by Choice meal program in each private jet journey. This feature gives you flexibility and a way to personalize your traveling experience. Dine where, when and with whom you choose. If you fancy a quiet evening in the comfort of your luxury hotel room, then order room service. Wander down to one of the dining options located in your hotel. But for those who want to experience the local specialties and ambience of the city, journey outside your hotel to the restaurant of your choice. And don’t forget to seek the help of your tour manager who will assist you with suggestions and reservations.

EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCEâ€Ś On our Private Jet Journeys to South America
Luxury Private Jet Your Executive Private Jet, which normally seats up to 40 passengers, has been custom-fitted for up to 15 travelers with luxurious leather club seats, providing you with the highest standards of comfort. These Jets are intimate in scale, with posh interiors typically reserved for heads of state, royalty and of course Lakani guests. Time is valuable and you want to make the most of it. Check-in and security at the airport are quick and easy while traveling on the private jet. We are usually on our jet minutes after arriving at the terminal because we often fly from private airport or terminals with faster security clearance and fewer travelers. Our Legacy 600 or Lineage 1000 private jets allow access to smaller airports close to our destinations, giving us ultimate flexibility and creativity in itinerary design, and making it possible to begin your touring, while scheduled travelers are still at the airport. These are the advantages that make private jet travel the ultimate in luxury vacations. Your cabin attendants are gracious, enthusiastic and will anticipate all of your in-flight needs. You also have the peace of mind that comes with knowing that the chartered aircraft operates at the highest standards of safety and security. The camaraderie of fellow travelers, professional tour managers, hand-selected flight crew, vintage wines, champagnes and top cuisine combine to make your Lakani Private Jet Tour memorable and rewarding.
