Wonders of the World
New 7 Wonders and more
There have been many Wonders of the World lists that have been compiled over the years since the original Seven Wonders of the Ancient World, of which there is only one sole survivor - the legendary Pyramids of Giza in Egypt. In 2007 an official New Seven Wonders of the World list was compiled in an attempt to revive the concept of the Ancient Wonders. Jordan's incredible Rose City of Petra, the white marble Taj Mahal in India, The Great Wall of China and Machu Picchu Inca ruins in Peru, all deservedly made the grade.
New lists have been complied in recent years as well including the Seven Natural Wonders of the World and the Underwater Wonders of the World. You could spend a lifetime visiting them all and everyone will have their own top seven wonders featuring worthy contenders that may have not quite made it onto the official lists. Start visiting your favourite with our wondrous range of tours.

The Official Seven New Wonders of the World
Over 100 million votes were cast in the lead up to 2007's announcement of the architectural and archaeological marvels that had made the official Seven New Wonders of the World. Voters chose from a selection of 200 existing monuments and the Pyramids of Giza were granted honorary status as the solo surviving wonder from the ancient world.
Man-made wonders of the world
These seven equally impressive man-made wonders made it onto the list of semi-finalists but didn't make the final cut in the official New7Wonders selection. Though we think they're definitely worth an entry on your bucket list.
Natural Wonders of the world
While our beautiful planet is a massive wonder in itself, within it are countless others - from the largest to the smallest, from unique geological formations to endemic wildlife species and more, these are the natural wonders that make us stop and jaws-drop in awe.
Other deserved contenders
With so many incredible natural and man-made wonders around the world, we think it's impossible to narrow the list down to just a select few. For that reason we've picked out some of our other favourites that we think deserve an honourable mention.
