Our Bucket List

Have a read of our Essential Eight Bucket List attractions, from Machu Picchu to Petra and the Great Wall of China 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. Why not combine Egypt with Jordan and Israel for a momentous trip?

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 →

Campanile di San Marco, St Mark's Basilica, Venice
#4 The canals of Venice

Italy is one of Europe's most popular destinations. It has something for everyone, including world famous cuisine, stunning Renaissance architecture and an incredible history. From the ruins of Pompeii to the canals of Venice and Michelangelo's David in Florence, take it all in with our Italy group tours.

Recommended tour: Rome, Florence & Venice →

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.

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.

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.

Great Wall, mountains and blue sky - China Tours - On The Go Tours
#10 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.
