A $97,970 vacation

As the Sun-Times travel editor, I get a lot of information sent to me about high-end luxury vacations, but this one gave even me pause...

American Express and Abercrombie & Kent tour operators have teamed up to offer 52 discerning — and rich — travelers a 24-day voyage to five continents.

Don't worry about sitting with the masses in coach. You're traveling on a private jet, after all.

Along the way, you'll stop by Easter Island to explore the famous moai and have an authentic umu dinner at the home of a native Rapanui.

You'll discover sacred burial grounds of the Samoan Royal Family in Samoa and get a private tour of Taronga Park Zoo in Sydney, Australia.

Watch an elephant polo match in Jaipur, India, and relax at the private Dubai Polo Club in Dubai, U.A.E. before having high tea at the over-the-top Burj Al Arab hotel.

Adventures in Seville, Spain, and Cairo, Egypt, are also on tap.

Need to check your schedule? Travel dates are Jan. 20-Feb. 13, 2009.

Need to check your bank account to see if you have a spare $100,000 sitting there?

One more thing: the offer is only open to American Express Cardmembers. Darn....my card's a Visa.
