Travel Like James Bond With This Exclusive European Getaway
Channel 007 on a European trip that includes everything from a high-speed boat ride on the Thames (with a Bond stunt driver) to a night at a Monte Carlo casino.
The incomparably mysterious, exotic, jet-setting appeal of James Bond might seem far out of reach on the big screen, but it’s a bit more attainable– at least to a lucky few– with a new luxury travel experience from Black Tomato.
The Assignment: Europe just launched in partnership with Bond producers EON Productions, offering an astonishing level of access into 007’s world through experiences pulled right from films like Skyfall, Casino Royale and Spectre, among other Bond adventures.
It’s a dream opportunity for any James Bond superfan, a laundry list of tailormade experiences that spans anywhere from five days to 12 days, with prices starting at $18,500 (the full 12-night experience runs about $74,500).
The trip includes everything from a high-speed Superhawk 34 boat ride on the Thames (with a Bond stunt driver) to an evening at the famed Casino de Monte-Carlo.
The luxury getaway, starting in London, takes a privileged few to a Bond-approved roster of breathtaking locations, including Solden, Austria–sight of 007’s first encounter with Madeleine Swan–to Lake Como, where Bond recuperates after a rather painful brush with Casino Royale nemesis Le Chiffre.
The catch? Only 60 of these limited-edition trips are up for grabs, almost as rare as the chance to buy James Bond’s timepiece or his favorite Danner boots.
And only this Bond experience comes with the chance to make a Vesper as part of a Martini Masterclass, or to trek around Venice and visit iconic Bond locales.
For good measure, each purchase comes complete with a limited-edition Globe-Trotter case in an homage to Dr. No.
It follows on the heels of a momentous run for all things 007 as of late, from a limited-edition James Bond Scotch to a 60th anniversary Blackwell 007 Rum.
Each destination includes exclusive, premium accommodations, including a stay at The Corinthia Hotel in London and Monte Carlo’s Hotel Metropole.
A stop in France even includes the rare chance to visit the home of 007’s champagne of choice, the Champagne Bollinger Chateau and Estate.
“The narratives of so many Bond films are enhanced by the distinct feel of iconic destinations, so recreating these stories for a first-person travel experience has been a true delight and honor,” said Tom Marchant, Black Tomato’s co-founder.
While not all can live like James Bond around the clock, there’s a slight chance this sort of experience could offer a window in that world, however brief. Sounds like a gamble 007 would make himself.
