    Hello World Travelers!

    For my first time to Europe I’m considering the European Experience. I’d be doing the one that starts May 31st, then staying longer and meeting friends in Amsterdam. Will anyone else on that tour be staying longer in Amsterdam (June 21st-23rd)? We could share a room in the same hotel that is used for the tour. Let me know if you are interested!

    Hi, I am really interested in doing this trip in late july/ August… I’ve just come back from a short trip (corfu explorer) which was so much fun! – I litterally just got back and want to book another trip asap!!
    The only thing was that there was no one else from Contiki staying at the hotel, we only met up with large contiki tours (who were on longer trips) on events like boat trips etc… So i’m a little confused as I really want to be with the group as a tour not an independent trip.
    Is this trip where you stay with the group, go on the coaches etc???? If so I thnk I’m in!!

    I just did the European Experience.
    It was honestly the best experience that I have done. We had a great group of people and had a great time.
    Make sure that you take multi-vitamins. You are bound to come back sick (late nights drinking and then early morning touring/traveling) – but it is all part of the experience.

    When you have your meeting in the basement the night before you leave, get everyone to go to the London pub for a few get-to-know-you drinks. Start the bonding (aka drinking) early!
    If you are hitting up the July 6th tour, you are going to be on there with a mate of mine, giving him the same advice.
    Have an awesome time!
