1. local leaders: Stonehenge, England

You don’t need to be a hippy or a follower of pagan religion to feel Stonehenge’s unique, magnetic power when you stand between the stones.

To be there at summer solstice is to experience what it might have been like for Neolithic man to watch the sunrise over Salisbury Plain on the longest day of the year. That’s not something you can do every day.
You might think Stonehenge is just a circle of giant, moss-covered stones in the middle of a grass field, well, you wouldn’t be wrong.

But what’s special about Stonehenge is the mystery which surrounds it. No-one knows where it came from or how it got there.

Is it a ceremonial site or a big sundial? No-one’s sure. It even has scientists and archaeologists baffled.
Stonehenge is in England so there’s never going to be guaranteed perfect weather. Late Spring through Summer and possibly as late as early Autumn are the best times to visit Stonehenge.

Yes, it’s cold up there in wintertime, but the stones look fantastic with a coating of snow or frost.{Read More}

2. local leaders: Tikal, Guatemala

You probably won’t be able to solve the mystery of a disappearing civilisation with just one visit, but you will get a chance to understand what it might be like to be alone in a post-apocalyptic city.

Just think, Will Smith and I am Legend, with temple ruins instead of skyscrapers and thankfully, no zombies.

There’s not many places in the world you can have an experience like that so go for it.
The abandoned Mayan city is more than a ghost town on a grand scale where the jungle is encroaching on the ruins, it’s a real anthropological conundrum.

Where did all the people go? And why?
Guatemala has a rainy season which, unless you really liked to get soaked to the skin, it’s best to avoid.

Plan for the dry season between November and the end of April, but as Tikal is at quite an altitude, be prepared for the the normally moderate temperature to drop in the evenings.{Read More}

3. local leaders: Borobudur Temple Compounds, Indonesia

The Borobudur Temple Compound has more domes and platforms than any other Buddhist temple plus over five hundred different Buddha statues.

That’s a lot of stone work by anyone’s standards. So if you’re going to see any Buddhist temple, make sure it’s the biggest and best one.
The Borobudur Temple Compounds in Indonesia, apart from being the largest Buddhist temple in the world, is completely unique structurally.

Just its silhouette against the skyline is something to be marvelled at. It’s monumental. The Borobudur Temple Compounds are a very popular place to visit.

To avoid the crowds who flock there, go early.{Read More}

4. local leaders: Parthenon, Greece

There are many archaeological wonders which just haven’t survived all the toils and troubles man and Mother Nature have thrown at them through the centuries.

The Parthenon, which is well over two thousand years old, isn’t one of them. Yes, it’s got a few cracks, some of the columns have fallen down and the roof, if there ever was one, has long since caved in.

Which is understandable when you consider its age. Will it be there for another thousand years?

Who knows. So it’s best to go and see this stunning monument while it’s still standing. When the ancient Greeks constructed the Parthenon, they made sure they chose a spot from where every inhabitant of Athens could see it. Even today the modern sprawl of the city hasn’t encroached on its hillside position.

It really is an outstanding example of a past civilisation’s dedication to their deity in all senses of the word.
There’s really only one way to avoid the crowds that flock to view the Parthenon on a daily basis and that’s to book a private sunset tour.

Wander through the ruins and then watch the sun go down. It’s an ethereal experience. Summer temperatures in Athens can reach forty-degrees Celsius and more plus the city suffers from a serious smog problem when it’s so hot, so skip the months of June through to September and go in the winter or spring.{Read More}

5. local leaders: Temple Mount, Jerusalem

It’s the perfect place to ponder on the origins of man and their connection with religion.

Is this really the place where God spoke to Abraham or where Muhammad went up to heaven and returned to earth with his teachings?

One can only surmise, but when you’re there, you might just start wondering, is there any explicable reason why the Dome of the Rock looks almost like a giant, golden-domed flying saucer which has come down from space and landed right on Temple Mount? Curious.
Does the myth of the Ark of the Covenant fascinate you?

Legend has it that the mystical box of magical powers is buried under the structure known as Temple Mount in Jerusalem. Well, there and a few other places too.

Is it? Who knows, and it’s only one of the religious controversies which surround Temple Mount.

To avoid getting wet, skip the months of December through to March when there’s a possibility of rain.{Read More}

6. local leaders: Pyramids of Giza, Egypt

The magnitude of the Pyramids of Giza can’t be appreciated unless you’re actually there. Photographs just don’t do them justice.

When you see them first hand, you’ll really begin to appreciate how difficult a task it must have been to build them with no machinery.

Even though the pyramids have been part of the Egyptian landscape for what seems like forever, you never know when they just might get swallowed up by the swirling sands of a desert storm and never be seen again.
The Pyramids of Giza are one of the original seven wonders of the world and even though they’ve been there for almost five thousand years, no-one can manage to agree on how they were actually built.

June to September are the hottest months in Egypt and temperatures soar far too high for comfortable sightseeing. Go any time from October through to April and you’ll save a fortune on sunscreen.{Read More}

7. local leaders: Moai Statues, Easter Island

There are some pretty strange things in the world and the Moai Statues definitely rate as one of them.

Their features are in some ways quite horrific and it’s quite possible to surmise they were originally carved and placed in position to scare off invaders. The Moai Statues aren’t just heads, they have strange stubby torsos too.
For bearable weather plan for the months of July and August when it’s not to hot. January and February are the hottest months and so are best avoided as is May as it tends to rain quite a lot.{Read More}

8. local leaders: The Colosseum, Rome, Italy

The Colosseum is the most visited historical monument in Italy. To be able to enjoy exploring it with being shoulder to shoulder with half of Europe, take a private Underground Colosseum Night Tour.

You won’t exactly be alone, but you waste half a day queueing either.
Given the times when it was actually constructed, and even though it took them about ten years to finish it, it was a colossal feat of engineering.

The intricacy of which can’t be fully appreciated until you’ve been down below ground and seen it for yourself.

Yes, there really is more to the Colosseum than initially meets the eye. But unless you go and actually have a look then you will never k

now.
To avoid the suffocating heat of an Italian summer in the city, visit the Colosseum in Spring, Autumn or Winter.

If you have an aversion to rain, yes, it does rain in Rome, then skip Winter and go in either of the other two seasons.{Read More}

9. local leaders: Angkor Wat, Cambodia

While Angkor Wat in Cambodia isn’t exactly a fairy tale castle it does have it’s own moat and is steeped in more legends than the imaginary Camelot.

When you wander through it and see some of the temple buildings consumed by the roots of giant trees, it just might inspire you to write your own version of the enchanted forest.
November through to March are the cooler months in Cambodia and that’s a fact lots of visitors take advantage of. June to October is quieter on the people front, but is a lot hotter and can also be wet.{Read More}

10. local leaders: Petra, Jordan

Why go? There really is nothing to compare with Petra anywhere else in the world. It really is monumental and on the grandest scale imaginable.

Towering facades have been intricately hewn into the pink stone and inside there’s temples, monasteries and tombs.Petra in Jordan is a whole cave city carved from solid rock which dates back to antiquity and further.
Petra suffers with searing heat during the summer months. To be able to wander round comfortably go in the cooler months of March to May or September through to November.{Read More}

  1. This monument reminds me of the sculptures in the middle of the city that are made of different stones and things. I think the historical places of each country show the originality of that country and this monument is one of the most exciting historical monuments available. I hope you visit it. And thank you for the guidance of the leaders

  2. The historical place reminds us of many memories that making these stones on top of each other motivates people to live and making different stones in different ways gives me a lesson in life and thank you, dear tour leader.

  3. The columns that are stacked on top of each other and the half-finished tower that we see in the picture, I remembered the first volume of history in high school and the shadow that fell on the water that surprised me thanks for leader of group

  4. Seeing these pictures is beyond expectation in a way that human beings like to communicate with. The bricks that are stuck together like soil and shown in the form of a historical place show the identity of that city.
