Fans of luxury crystal no longer have to settle for planning their own vacations to places like Swarovski Alpine museum. The French crystal company Baccarat will take you on a tour of the world, as seen through the dazzling lens of their products.

Condé Nast Traveler reports that the company is launching a 12-day, six-country “Heritage Experience” tour complete with private air travel, luxury hotel stays, and lots and lots of crystal. “This voyage around the world will allow guests to live the legend of Baccarat, its origins, its heart and soul, its 252 years of history, its modernity,” the company said on its website.

For $300,000, guests can take a spa day at the Baccarat Hotel in New York, explore the Maison Baccarat and company museum in Paris, see a pair of crystal-filled Ottoman palaces in Istanbul, learn the history of Baccarat’s Moscow operation, sip cocktails from crystal glasses in Japan, and admire chandeliers in South Korea.
