Baccarat Creates 12-Day Global Heritage Tour

By Paul Joseph

World renowned crystal makers Baccarat have created a unique travel experience inviting guests to travel the world to see the best the brand has to offer.

Priced at $300,000 per couple, the 12 day Baccarat Heritage Experience begins and ends at the Baccarat Hotel New York with pit-stops in France, Japan, Turkey, Russia and South Korea.

In New York guests will enjoy a two day stay at the Baccarat branded hotel, where they can experience a spa treatment at Spa de La Mer, an afternoon tea, dinner at Chevalier, as well as an after-hours tour of the Baccarat store on Madison Avenue.

The next stop is Paris where guests will spend two days complete with a private tour of the Maison and Museé Baccarat. The Parisian leg of the trip also includes a day trip to Lorraine (by helicopter), where they brand was founded and has a factory.

This will be followed by lunch at Chateau Baccarat and an opportunity to view more than 16,000 original sketches of Baccarat’s crystalware.

A private flight will whisk guests off to Istanbul where the palaces of Beylerbeyi and Dolmabahce await, each filled with Baccarat crystal chandeliers commissioned by sultans of the Ottoman Empire.

After a night in Istanbul, guests will jet off to Moscow for two days where they will learn about the crystal made for the royal family. They will also have the chance to check out the Maison Baccarat Moscow which is located in the same building that once held the Czar’s private pharmacy.
