Sometimes we have less time in a new city than we hoped for, often relying on quick scans of dense print guides and less than clear online reviews to figure out what to do and see in a short block of time.
Enter in this New Jersey travel agency that’s offering custom-designed trips for travelers who only have two or three days to explore a city with certain themes in mind, depending on their interests. Appropriately titled the “48 Hour Power Jaunt” and started by a founder who has been traveling on short-burst itineraries nearly all of her life}, these are a series of carefully curated itineraries where experiences and hotels are personally planned all for time-challenged travelers.
Perfect for business travelers who are going somewhere on quick notice, we were able to get a look at some of the itineraries. There aren’t any North American travel plans yet — but the Europe and South America schedules are out of this world cool.
My personal favorite itinerary is London, where you get to “channel your inner Bond with a Mini Cooper drive through London’s streets.” Beyond staying at a 5-star hotel in the ultra cool neighborhood of Chelsea, you get to cruise on the River Thames where you’ll catch must-see views of Big Ben, The London Eye and the Tower Bridge. You’ll get to pre-select a show in London’s famous West End for a night on the town as well. Day two consists of doing the award-winning Secret Food Tour of London, exploring London with a retro Mini Cooper
And London isn’t the only badass place they cater to. The service offers packages in Paris, Marrakesh, Dubai, Lima, Madrid, Tokyo, Morocco and more. Happy wanderlusting.
