    Hey, my friend and I are also going on this tour. My name is Catrina and my friend’s name is Nicole. We are from Alberta Canada. We’ve both done Contiki before and have had an AMAZING time! 50-ish days until we all get to meet in Italy :)

    It’s so great to hear about more people going! I’m so excited! Catrina, where else have you been with Contiki? What was it like? Monja, I wouldn’t worry about the poor reviews, some people just like to complain. I’ve spoken to two other friends that have used Contiki and they only had positive things to say. You’re right though, it’s the people that make the trip fun. I want to do EVERYTHING!

  • 16 Jun 2011 Monja said


    More people awesome!!! I also want to do EVERYTHING!!! And want to buy shoes!!!! Hahahahah !! Hi Catrina and Nicole can’t wait for italy and to meet you too!!!!! Also guys what type of hand luggage are you going to use????

    Hey! my sister and I are going = ). I"m Yoojin From Vancouver. So excited and nervous! I wonder how many ppl are in this trip!!

  • 17 Jun 2011 Daisy24 said


    Well I have done two other Contiki trips – the Ireland tour and Brelin to Budapest. They were both amazing. The Ireland tour I was travelling with Nicole and the Berlin to Budapest tour I did as a solo traveller. Both were so easy to make friends and feel comortable with everyone on tour. I can’t say anything bad about Contiki (obviously, since this is my third! lol). I think as long as you have the right expectations and realize that we won’t be staying in 5 star hotels or eating at the most expensive places then it’s a great experience. A lot of fun and I have made some amazing friends in all sorts of countries!

    I just bring an oversized purse for hand luggae. But I travel fairly light. Nicole uses a backpack.

    Hi Yoojin – I love Vancouver! One of my fav cities :)

    Hi Yoojin!!! Awesome to met more people on this trip!!!! I am getting so exited!!! Busy packing already HAHA :-) cant wait to meet you all!!!!!
