Wonders of the World

Seven Wonders: One World After years of preparation, the results of the "New 7 Wonders of the World" competition were unveiled in Lisbon in July 2007. Over 100 million votes were cast worldwide to select seven monuments and buildings from a list of 21 finalists † - † each recognised as having truly global significance. †Machu Picchu PeruThe final seven were confirmed as:
  • The Great Wall of China.
  • Petra, Jordan.
  • Chich√©n Itz√°, Mexico.
  • The Statue of Christ Redeemer, Rio.
  • The Colosseum, Italy.
  • Machu Picchu, Peru.
  • The Taj Mahal, India.
Here at the STC, we are very pleased to say that we can arrange tailor-made holidays and †school trips to see and experience all but one of the of the 21 finalists. Ironically, the only one that escapes us is right on our doorstep - Stonehenge! Still, we're fairly sure our clients are a resourceful lot and won't have a problem getting themselves to Wiltshire if required! The other 13 finalists were The Acropolis in Athens, The Alhambra Palace, Spain; † Angkor Wat, Cambodia; The Moa Statues, Easter Island; The Eiffel Tower, France, † Hagia Sophia, Turkey; Kiyomizu Temple, Japan, The Kremlin, Moscow; Neuschwanstein Castle, Germany; The Pyramids of Giza, Egypt, The Statue of Liberty, USA; Sydney Opera House, Australia †and Timbuktu, Mali. †To visit any or all of the "New 7 Wonders of the World" contact us †for itineraries, prices and to discuss your trip
