With 21 finalists and over 100 million votes cast, on the 7th July 2007 the final selection of the New 7 Wonders of the World was announced. The likes of Angkor Wat, Hagia Sofia and Moscow's Kremlin battled it out over seven years from an initial selection of 200 monuments but in the end, only seven could claim the title of 'new world wonder'.
Spread far and wide from Europe to South America, in 30 action-packed days, these incredible sites can be combined on a round-the-world adventure that spans five continents and takes you from the dusty deserts of Egypt and Jordan to the towering peaks of the Andes.
Discover the New 7 Wonders of the World in 30 action-packed days with time to explore eight different cities. We plotted out a round-the-world trip to take it all in, starting in London where you can visit the Queen at Buckingham Palace, see the crown jewels at the Tower of London and ride the London Eye. If you prefer to start your adventure elsewhere then we recommend contacting your local flight specialist for the best round-the-world fares from wherever in the world you may be.
This 30-day New World Wonders tour itinerary is our suggested way to cover the eight sites with enough time to get between the destinations and spend a few days exploring the different cities - the package can be tailored to your exact requirements so if you want to add extra time in any destination, contact our team and we'll be happy to put together your own unique round-the-world adventure.
