Natural Wonders

It's amazing what can be found in the world. From the depths of the seas to the peak of the highest mountains, there are some truly breathtaking sights that have to be witnessed first-hand, if only for you to believe that these incredible sights exist.

In spring, Japan becomes a theater for nature to put on one of its most extravagant displays, as the delicate pink cherry blossoms burst into life, before falling in flurries that have made this season so famed around the world. Under the sea in Australia, the Great Barrier Reef teems with life and color, as ostentatious fish and multi-hued coral combine to create a majestic spectacular.

The Northern Lights truly come alive in the winter, with the cosmos combining with the atmosphere to create glittering ribbons that wend and wind their ways across the Norwegian skies. In the animal kingdom, Africa is the only place to be, where you can see lions lope across the plain, as well as leopards, buffalo, rhinoceros, and the gargantuan African elephant.

Man-Made Wonders

Of course, nature can't take all the credit for the magnificent things in the world, humans have done their parts as well. Four of the modern Seven Wonders of the World can be explored on our tours, and truly, they are a testament to the ingenuity of humanity throughout the ages.

In India, discover the Taj Mahal, an intricate monument to love. With its iconic white domes, symmetrical architecture and landscaping, and complex carvings, this marble building is stunning at any time of day. Whether you are witnessing it at sunrise, or sunset, when the sky tinges the white walls pink, or during the day, when it is a gleaming spectacular. Absorb also the history of Machu Picchu, a once-forgotten kingdom that hides in the peaks of the Peruvian Andes, above the atmospheric Sacred Valley of the Incas.

Although the Great Wall of China cannot be done in a day, just standing on its crenelated walls that look out over the incredible Chinese landscape is an experience that cannot be missed. Finally, hidden amongst the already undeniably historic streets of Rome, the magnificent Colosseum, built to entertain paupers and kings, and still standing today as a monument to the first Roman Empire.
