With the latest film installment of James Bond, No Time to Die, coming out on April 3, 2020, travel company Oliver’s Travels is offering fans the “Ma’am’ of all VIP experiences” with an exclusive 007-holiday experience for guests visiting in the Talamon Tower in Sienna, Italy.

The Bond experience provides “aspiring agents” with the unique chance to act out their wildest spy fantasies.
Guests can participate in “007 experiences fit for Bond himself, including chauffeurs by private helicopters, speeding to Michelin starred dinners on Sunseeker powerboats and racing through the Tuscan countryside in classic cars,” the website describes.
In typical Bond-fashion, visitors will kick off their adventure with a private helicopter ride to their secluded villa in the Talamon Tower in Sienna, an iconic filming location for another one of 007’s escapades, Quantum of Solace.
The villa — which has six bedrooms, six bathrooms, and can sleep up to 12 people — features outstanding views of the Tyrrhenian Sea.
It also comes with its very own professional butler who will welcome guests with martinis — shaken, not stirred, of course.
A concierge team is also available on hand to coordinate any additional spy-related activities of your choosing.
For those who appreciate the iconic selection of vehicles featured in the Bond franchise, get ready to be stoked.
Through this experience, you will have the opportunity to explore rural Tuscany behind the wheel of a genuine Bond Car, “such as the Aston Martin DB5, as seen in Skyfall, the Bentley Mark IV which appeared in From Russia With Love, and the Ford Mustang driven in Diamonds are Forever,” according to the company website.
If cars aren’t your speed, you can also take to the sky and explore the Tuscan coast in a Sunseeker just like the Sovereign 17 from Quantum of Solace, before dining at a Michelin starred restaurant situated in the iconic Hotel Il Pellicano.
This black-tie-affair dinner will allow you to sample the delicious original dishes by Chef Michelino Gioia, renowned for his modern take on classic Italian food.
Finally, if that doesn’t sound like enough, guests can participate in a cocktail masterclass right in their villa.
You will learn how to create various notable cocktails highlighted in Bond films by one of Tuscany’s most renowned mixologists.
The James Bond holiday experience costs £90,000 (~ $155,100 CAD) for 12 guests.
It includes “seven nights accommodation, helicopter transfers, a butler, powerboat transfers to dinner at Il Pellicano, two classic cars for one day use, a cocktail masterclass, private poker evening, a fully stocked fridge and one dinner with a private chef,” the website explains.
