Tours To See The Wonders of the World

Discover the many wonders this world has to offer from man-made to natural

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.
