The Great Wall of China
This stunning man-made fortification stands at a massive 13,170 miles long. It began construction in 500 BC and was used to protect China's northern border that consisted of a magnificent wall with a series of fortifications along the way. Today the wall is listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is one of the most popular tourist attractions for anyone visiting China on an escorted tour. Wonder if you'll have the energy to walk its entirety?
No visit to the west coast of America would be complete without experiencing the dazzling lights of Las Vegas. Rivalling New York City as a place that never sleeps, we doubt that you'll run out of things to do and places to see whilst here on holiday. See if 'Lady Luck' is on your side at the casinos, take a ride on the awesome Stratosphere, catch an out-of-this-world show or walk the length and breadth of the Strip. Do not miss the fabulous fountain displays at the Bellagio, the Pirate show and hop on a helicopter for awe-inspiring views of The Grand Canyon.
The Northern Lights
This is a natural spectacle everyone should try and see at least once in their lifetime. The Northern Lights are a wonderful series of colourful light that crosses the night sky with hues of green and if you are particularly lucky, you may even see some pink! Many holiday makers have visited the Northern Hemisphere in the hopes of seeing this mysterious phenomenon, however you need to be particularly lucky catch them on a clear night.
Any escorted tour to South America should include a visit to the fascinating Inca city of Machu Picchu. UNESCO World Heritage Site is at least 550 years old and is a breath- taking sight to see with clouds swirling around the peaks of The Andes, llamas grazing and tourists milling about or taking part in fascinating mountain treks. You have the opportunity to follow the Inca Trail by foot or you can do part of the journey on the narrow gauge railway. When you get to Macchu Picchu you can take a guided tour of the ancient citadel, wander through the temples and terraces or find a tourist-free spot, sit back and enjoy the spectacular views which will possibly take your breath away!
