As an avid lover of films, I couldn’t be more excited about this trip — even to the point of considering how a three-month sabbatical from work would be feasible (it’s not). VeryFirstTo.com’s exclusive World’s Most Famous Film Locations – In One Blockbuster Trip is one of those adventures that will have travel enthusiasts immediately reaching for their credit cards.

Over the span of three months, with stops in 10 countries, the trip will take couples to 20 of the most iconic film locations around the world for approximately USD $272,000. With the help of private tour guides, you’ll be able to relive moments from your favorite movies. Search for your mysterious admirer in Montmartre, Paris, France (Amélie); go on a hunt for Bill Murray at the Park Hyatt Tokyo’s bar (Lost in Translation); or merely yell, “FREEDOM!”on the hills of Glen Coe, Scotland (Braveheart).

Most likely this will be a pilgrimage you’ll never forget and one to brag about for years. As Morpheus once said, “I'm trying to free your mind. But I can only show you the door. You're the one that has to walk through it.” Wise words, sir.
