Get ready for a belt-busting holiday of a lifetime – for £182,000 ($289,780.4 in US) per couple, experience every three-star Michelin restaurant around the world in 6 months.
What would you do with $275,000? For some it could be a down payment on a house or maybe a new Ferrari, and for the very select few you could splurge on a dining opportunity of a lifetime, tasting 109 Michelin three-star restaurants around the world in 6 months. The mouth-watering adventure is being offered in partnership with award winning luxury travel company Holidayplease. The six-month trip will feature visits to the top rated restaurants located in 12 countries across the globe, nine of them are in Europe, and the other three are the U.S., Japan and China. 
Highlights include: ‘Salmon Poached in a Liquorice Gel’ at experimental chef Heston Blumenthal’s The Fat Duck in England: the delicacies of legendary chef Alain Ducasse in Monaco: and Arzak’s ‘Pineapple Bubbles’ in the mountainous Basque country.

In 2009, The New Yorker said, “Michelin has gone to extraordinary lengths to maintain the anonymity of its inspectors. Many of the company’s top executives have never met an inspector; inspectors themselves are advised not to disclose their line of work, even to their parents (who might be tempted to boast about it); and, in all the years that it has been putting out the guide, Michelin has refused to allow its inspectors to speak to journalists. The inspectors write reports that are distilled, in annual “stars meetings” at the guide’s various national offices, into the ranking of three stars, two stars, or one star—or no stars. (Establishments that Michelin deems unworthy of a visit are not included in the guide.)

As a guest of VeryFirstTo, you will visit approximately one restaurant every other day, and savour spectacular culinary experiences while taking in the local sites of each destination. Restaurants include Lung King Heen (Hong Kong); Sushi Yoshitake (Tokyo); Per Se (New York) and Meurice (Paris).

You will enjoy gourmet adventure in luxurious style (with business class and top hotels). They will stay in the magnificent facilities of five-star hotels including: Trump International (New York); Conrad (Tokyo): Hotel De Paris (Monte Carlo) and Claridges (London).

A donation of £1,500 ($2388.30 US Dollar) will be made to charity The Prince’s Trust, that helps change young lives, once the trip is purchased.

The cost includes organization of: travel, accommodation and restaurant reservations; and costs of flights; hotel rooms and meals at the Michelin restaurants. The meal costs have been estimated at an average of £250 ($400 US Dollar) / head including house wine. You will pay the restaurants directly and the meal cost will obviously depend upon what has been ordered.  So, who’s in?
