2. How much is the trip?

The price will range from £15,000 per person and will depend on where you would like to go and for long.

This is to ensure the best possible Bond experience.

3. How can I book it?

Please contact our James Bond travel team via email james.bond@blacktomato.com, our enquiry form, or by calling us on either +1 646 558 3644 if you’re based in the US or +44 207 426 9888 for calls from the UK.

4. What is “bespoke” and “The Assignment”?

The ‘bespoke’ edition of the trip is entirely customizable.

We only stipulate that it must be a minimum of five nights and must include at least two destinations (or more) and at least two or more experiences in each destination. This is to ensure the best possible Bond experience.

In contrast, The Assignment is a fixed, twelve-night journey into the world of James Bond. It begins in London and continues through Paris, Monaco, Lake Como, and ends with a spectacular finale in Venice – including a suite of experiences that bring the world of 007 to life like never before.

If you would like to include Lake Como within your experience, the best time of year is May-September however if you would like to include Solden to ski then we would recommend travelling December-April.

We will be looking to create other James Bond trips, with the film producers, in the future – for now, this is the only endorsed by EON Productions James Bond trip available. However please do get in touch, as depending on the request and interests, we’re always happy to help where we can.

Some are included and when we provide you with a quote for your itinerary we will stipulate these details.
