Our Bucket List

Have a read of our top 10 Bucket List attractions, from Machu Picchu to Petra and Chichen Itza to the Pyramids of Giza.

Best of Egypt with Teenagers Main Image- Pyramids- Egypt
#1 The Pyramids of Giza, Egypt

As the last surviving Ancient Wonder of the World and Egypt's crowning glory, it is little surprise that the Pyramids top our list. These legendary tombs are an everlasting symbol of the power of the ancient pharaohs and are a truly breathtaking sight.

The Taj Mahal - India Tours - On The Go Tours
#2 The Taj Mahal, India

The highlight of any visit to India, the Taj Mahal with its white marble exterior is one of the most impressive man-made structures found anywhere on Earth. Built by the Emperor Shah Jahan as a memorial to his wife, it is also the most powerful monument to love the world has ever seen.

Machu Picchu with woman in the foreground - Peru Tours - South America Tours - On The Go Tours
#3 Machu Picchu, Peru

The Lost City of the Incas survived the colonisation of Peru by the Spanish, which virtually wiped out its people. In fact, it wasn't rediscovered until 1911, perched high in the mountains amongst the clouds. Now open to the public, there are no words to express the sense of wonder one feels when gazing on Machu Picchu for the first time.

Recommended tour: Amazon, Incas & Titicaca →

Great Wall, mountains and blue sky - China Tours - On The Go Tours
#4 The Great Wall of China, China

Zigzagging across China for mile after mile, the Great Wall was once a formidable defence, protecting the country from invaders. Although the common myth about being able to see it from space isn't true, walking along a section of this ancient structure is certainly an experience for the bucket list.

Monastery in Petra - Jordan best time to visit - On The Go Tours
#5 Petra, Jordan

Imagine winding your way through the narrow Siq, steep cliffs rising up on either side. Then, bursting out into the clearing, you gaze in wonder at the mighty Monastery, the crowning glory of the Nabatean city of Petra, which also found fame in Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade. Let this dream become a reality when you join any of our tours to Jordan.

Chichen Itza - Mexico - On The Go Tours
#6 Chichen Itza, Mexico

Found on the Yucatan Peninsula in Mexico, Chichen Itza is a collection of Mayan ruins, surrounded by jungle. Towering over the rest of the site is El Castillo, a mysterious step pyramid which was built sometime between the 8th and 12th centuries. An incredible sight to behold!

Roman Colosseum
#7 The Colosseum, Italy

As the only European attraction to make our list, Rome's Colosseum harks back to the world's most successful empire, the Romans. Once spanning from Great Britain to North Africa and Spain to the Middle East, Rome was the focal point for this epic civilisation.

Recommended tour: Renaissance & Riviera →

Journey Across South America 2020 - main image - Rio
#8 Christ the Redeemer, Brazil

Rounding out the Wonders of the World is Rio de Janeiro's most famous landmark. Known for its vibrant carnival, buzzing nightlife and sandy beaches, Rio is an incredible destination for intrepid travellers. And dominating the skyline at the summit of Corcovado Mountain, Christ the Redeemer is definitely one for the bucket list.

Recommended tour: Natural Wonders of Brazil →

A lion in Kruger National Park
#9 Spotting the Big Five, Africa

Lion, elephant, rhino, leopard, buffalo. Africa's Big Five. Going on safari and seeing these incredible species in the wild is something that everyone should experience. We offer incredible safaris varying from a few days to several weeks, and crossing much of this great continent, from South Africa to Kenya and Botswana to Namibia.

Recommended tour: Kenya to Kruger →

Angkor Wat in Cambodia at sunrise - Southeast Asia - On The Go Tours
#10 Angkor Wat, Cambodia

Undeservedly left off the Seven Wonders of the World, Angkor Wat can take some solace from being included in our round up of bucket list attractions. This Khmer masterpiece is the main attraction in the ancient Angkor temple complex, and is one of the world's largest and most impressive religious buildings. Few experiences beat watching the sunrise over this iconic building.

Recommended tour: Saigon to Siem Reap →
