The journey of a lifetime, an inside look of luxury

Travelling with an intimate group of no more than 52 passengers (versus the standard 233 on board a commercial flight) ensures that you enjoy a bespoke journey. Whether you choose to fly around the world or immerse yourself in a specific region, every Four Seasons Private Jet Experience also comes with a dedicated team of travel experts and professionals who provide exceptional service in the air and on the ground. And with one crew member to every six to seven passengers, you’re guaranteed distinctive, personalised Four Seasons service from beginning to end.

The Four Seasons Jet—a state-of-the-art Boeing 757 offering the comfort, service and exclusivity synonymous with its namesake brand—has been designed to ensure that passengers enjoy the journey as much as the destination.

The luxury hospitality industry’s first fully branded jet experience, the Four Seasons Jet features the same spacious comfort, accessible technology and flawless design found at our hotels and resorts around the world. Every element of the plane’s interior is custom designed, from individually handcrafted leather flatbed seats to handmade carpet woven on traditional looms in Amsterdam to the built-in Venetian blinds covering each window.

In the International Intrigue among the 9 destinations, Budapest is featured for a 3 day exploration: Your journey through Budapest’s rich history begins in Heroes’ Square, home to St. Stephen’s Basilica and its stunning stained-glass windows. Get a different perspective on both Buda and Pest as you take a private ride on a 100-year-old tramcar along the river. Browse the trendy boutiques and modern art galleries on Király utca, or relax in the thermal pools at Széchenyi Baths, a historic spa built more than 100 years ago. Venture into the Etyek-Buda region, the center of winemaking in Hungary for centuries, and sample the crisp whites and sparkling wines the area is known for at a family-run vineyard. Learn the secrets of making strudel, a flaky sweet-filled pastry that originated in the Hapsburg era, before feasting on your creations. Take a private tour of the neo-Renaissance State Opera House, the center of Hungary’s rich operatic tradition, and enjoy a performance in this renowned venue. Sail down the Danube on an evening cruise, gliding past the iconic Parliament Building and Buda Castle, which are beautifully lit up at night.

You can spend some time in the charming riverside town of Szentendre, where you’ll visit The Erdesz Gallery and meet with owner László Erdész, one of the country’s best-known modern art dealers. During an exclusive gala dinner, take in varied panoramas of the Danube River and Pest from this neo-Romanesque terrace atop Castle Hill. Venture underneath the storied Matthias Church on a private guided tour to view Gothic stone carvings and sacred relics housed in the crypt’s Ecclesiastical Art Museum.

A unique art nouveau landmark built in 1906 and recently restored to its original splendor, Four Seasons Hotel Gresham Palace is centrally located at the end of the renowned Chain Bridge, the hotel features panoramic views of the Danube and the hills of Buda. Enjoy the vibrant ambiance of KOLLÁZS, a casual European brasserie, or sip a fine Hungarian wine under the magnificent glass cupola at the Bar and Lobby Lounge.
