Included meals on Time Out/Superior/Hotel Tours.
- Breakfast – Is always included on all European Contiki Tours – European Continental breakfasts are supplied at the hotels where you stay. The Continental style usually consists of rolls, butter, jams, tea or coffee and juices. Sometimes in northern European countries they will add an egg, ham or cheese. This will certainly seem different to home and somewhat repetitive if you are used to a cooked breakfast, however this fare is normal in Europe, especially in the more southern, hotter countries.
- Lunch – is not included and is always up to you – allows you the freedom to eat what you want and enjoy the local flavors.
- Dinner – Roughly half your evening meals are included and generally in the Table d’Hote style. Some are buffet style but usually consist of 3-meal course dinners with meat or fish as the main. Most dinners are served at your hotel or at a local restaurant. Dinners that are not included are left up to you to sample and enjoy the local cuisine and on some nights there may be an optional excursion meal planned.
Please note: If you have any special dietary requests, please make these known at your time of booking. Also let your Tour Manager know and they will notify the hotels and restaurants. Unfortunately, Contiki can not be held responsible for local meals that do not meet your exact requirements.
