Hearing shady things about Contiki
20 Jul 2007
I've been doing research on Contiki and want to validate some things before paying A LOT of money.<BR><BR>1. The air conditioning system on the buses causes everybody to get sick.<BR><BR>2. Bus drivers get lost consistently.<BR><BR>3. Hotel rooms are awful because Contiki has pretty much run itself out of any decent ones due to their party image.<BR><BR>4. Most people want to make friends and get drunk, not see Europe.<BR><BR>5. Buses are located outside of the city to force you to do optionals. <BR><BR>6. And this is my biggest concern: After paying lots of money, you are told on day 1 not to BMW: *****, Moan, or Whine because the advertisements about how the trip would be were a lie.<BR><BR>I'm concerned now. I went to Epinions and 70% of the reviews were negative. Any truth to anything?
