Ever wondered what it would be like to eat breakfast at Tiffany’s, spend a day in paradise on the pure shores of The Beach or even enter The Matrix? Some of the most intriguing locations in the world come to our attention in the films that we watch, but most of us will only ever experience these extraordinary places via cinema or TV screens.
This just won’t cut it for some of us. Luckily, a unique travel opportunity has arisen courtesy of one-off experience connoisseurs VeryFirstTo.com and luxury travel company Unmissable.
