It's hard to choose between the world's seven continents, as they all offer their own special magic and a unique range of sights and experiences. Europe has an extraordinary diversity of scenery and cultures, with highlights including Germany's forest and rivers, Italy's atmospheric cities and France's timeless charm. North America is dominated by the USA, a land of epic panoramas and sensational cities such as New York and San Francisco. South America, its less-well-known neighbour, is every bit as fascinating thanks to Peru's Inca ruins and the rhythms of Rio de Janeiro. Africa offers the chance to see incredible wildlife, and Asia has the world's oldest civilisations and highlights such as the Great Wall and the Taj Mahal. Oceania features the once-in-a-lifetime experience of Australia and New Zealand, while Antarctica's evocative landscape of snow and ice is simply breathtaking.
North America is a continent painted on a grand canvas, blessed with extraordinary cities and a landscape of icy wildernesses, great plains, stunning lakes and canyons, vast deserts and lush jungle.
South America holidays offer the more intrepid explorer a host of amazing experiences, from the rhythms of Rio and the elegance of Buenos Aires to the mysteries of Peru's Inca civilisation.
Warm weather, an epic landscape and the locals' easy charm have long made Australasia a favourite with British holidaymakers - and for many of us, a trip Down Under represents a lifetime ambition.
Asia tours offer a wonderful journey for the senses. See pink sunsets over ancient temples, smell the spices in the markets, taste delicious dishes packed with fresh flavours and hear the calls of exotic animals and birds in mist-shrouded jungles.
Africa holidays are an unforgettable experience, from the fascinating Islamic culture and spectacular Egyptian ruins in the north to the magnificent sunsets, inspiring landscapes and breathtaking wildlife you'll encounter further south.
