Eight World Wonders in a month
Tick off the new seven wonders of the world and the sole-surviving ancient wonder with up to 24 like-minded travellers aboard On The Go Tours’ 31-day World Wonders itinerary.
Previously sold as a private itinerary, the month-long journey sets out from Italy, visiting the Colosseum in Rome, followed by the Great Pyramids of Giza in Egypt, and the Rose City of Petra, Jordan. After the Middle East, the trip takes in the Taj Mahal in India, then onto the Great Wall in China before heading to Mexico to explore the Mayan ruins of Chichen Itza. Then heading south to Latin America, the itinerary incorporates visits to Machu Picchu in Peru and winds up in Rio de Janeiro at Christ the Redeemer statue.
“We had a huge amount of interest in the World Wonders tour when it was launched as a private itinerary,” On the Go Tours managing director Carl Cross said.
“A lot of this was from solo travellers who couldn’t afford it as a private itinerary and wanted to enjoy this once-in-a-lifetime adventure with the joys of travelling with a group,” Cross added.
Three departure dates have been scheduled for 3 October 2018 and 6 March & 8 May 2019.
Accommodation is a mix of 3- to 5-star hotels. While numbers are capped at 24 guests, On The Go suggests each trip will have around 12 participants.
It’s priced at $13,495 per person twin share. There’s a single supplement of $4,960 which is refunded should the traveller be paired up with someone of the same sex.
