VeryFirstTo, the UK equivalent of Gilt, is offering a two year trip to every world heritage site including business class airfare and five star hotel accommodation (where available). The price you ask? It’s only a cool ?990,000 (about 1.5 million USD) per couple. So what do you receive with your package?

VeryFirstTo exclusive: the most spectacular, never done before journey, visiting every World Heritage site. The two year trip features visits to the 962* places that the World Heritage Committee considers as having outstanding universal cultural and natural value. Destinations on The Ultimate Journey include: Mexico’s ancient city of Monte Alban; the sensational Taj Mahal in India; Petra the symbol of Jordan; Cambodia’s exotic Angkor temples; Spain’s Moorish Alhambra; the Great Pyramids in Egypt; China’s enchanting Forbidden City and Peru’s Machu Picchu sitting 8.000 ft above sea level. The ultra luxury adventure (with business class a minimum standard**) will see the exceedingly lucky couple enjoy the splendid facilities of hotels including: Sandy Lane (Barbados); Hotel George V (Paris); The Plaza (New York); The Taj Mahal Palace (Mumbai); Cipriani Hotel (Venice); and The Ritz-Carlton Hotel (Moscow). Bespoke luxury travel company Hurlingham Travel will be orchestrating the holiday. A donation of ?5000 will be made to UNESCO during the trip.

Perhaps most importantly, you will likely accumulate miles and points for your adventure as VeryFirstTo will be outright paying for the airfare and hotel rooms.

Interesting, but takes out much of the fun to have others arranging everything.

@Rapid Travel Chai – Completely agree and I like some spontaneity in my travel. Besides the point that the price tag is 1.5 million!

Yeah, I’m sure you could get this done with points and miles for less than 10% of that price…
