I surfed, scuba dived, skydived, and sailed. I met some awesome people on this trip who I hope to travel and visit soon. To top it off, you have the option to party every night, which I chose to! Well, almost every night. Contiki does things a little different and it was a bit of an adjustment at first, but I'm going to resist saying anything more negative because the experience was worth it. Our bus/coach was nice and the amenities on most nights were good; maybe bring your own blanket just in case you wind up at a place that only gives you a small cloth to sleep under. Definitely bring your vitamins and try your best to stay healthy. When you're doing quad shares and sharing a bus with 30+ people it's inevitable that some people are going to get a nasty cough. I got one, but I didn't let it ruin my trip.
Also, you may be a part of a bigger tour, in which case you'll either join up in the middle of your groups tour or have to part ways with them when they're moving on. That can be a bit disconcerting for some, but all-in-all I seriously had the best time ever and am already planning my next Contiki!
