The present luxury travelers are looking for new and unique experiences. They want to learn and understand the culture and history of the places they visit. They must experience it like a local, or more aptly, a very wealthy local.
The new aspect of luxury vacation, it’s no longer about living in the most expensive hotels or eating off gold (or actually eating it); it’s now about experiencing that you’ll never forget that no one else has Instagrammed.
A choice that could provide you a real new experience in terms of the modern meaning of luxury travelling is a private sailing cruise on a luxury yacht. A cruise like this in the Aegean Sea and especially in the Cyclades island group can provide an authentic experience of the town, city or village you’re visiting.
Although there will always be “must see” tourist spots to go to, you could also live authentic and local experiences. For instance, on the islands you are going to visit you could participate in events that locals would frequent, like local festivals with music, dance, food and drink.
For those who love to shop, you’ll have the opportunity to try and buy local products that you can’t find anywhere else. Try amazing wines, cheeses, exceptional Hellenic products like herbs coming from the Greek earth and grown with the help of sun and salty wind.
Among others you’ll have also the option of arranging with your skipper a unique experience by mixing and matching different excursions, day trips, cruises and activities to suit your personal preferences and interests. You could visit such as, archaeological sites or secret buys or even enjoy a massage or personal counseling session like Ayurvedic & Thai massages, Healing, Reiki, Aromatherapy. If you wish you could also enjoy water sports or a relaxing yoga workshop.
All the above could be a memorable time of your life consisted of services planned only for you, private visits, isolated beaches, private tours, or a relaxing afternoon cycling through the Greek countryside to a vineyard where a wholesome Mediterranean meal awaits? The options are endless.
Of course on a trip like this the crew of the sailboat can ensure you a level of safety and security, a calm cruise, a safe anchor the best services in and out of the boat. Everything on a trip along these lines is designed to satisfy your peace in mind and give you the pleasure you swear by a new age luxury travel.
