European Contrasts plus Corfu Resort » Review by Trav Pyke
I had always wanted to do a contiki tour simply because everyone you speak to that had done one said it was simply amazing. I travelled solo not knowing anyone and wasn't sure exactly what to expect. European contrasts 29 day concept tour was the one I had chosen and wouldn't have changed a thing. From the first minute our group got chatting I knew that it was going to be amazing. Everyone had the right attitude and was there for the right reasons. Our tour manager and driver where two of the better blokes you will ever come across. The knowledge they possessed and finding the right balance of fun and culture ensured everyone on tour had the opportunity to get out of it what they wanted. All in all it was the best thing I have ever done. 13 countries with 39 likeminded people ranging in age from 18-29. Make sure you budget a little more money, do every optional, even if it means getting out of your comfort zone, and hit contiki with an open mind, you will not be dissaponted. From the tour I found an amazing girlfriend, people I would class as best mates and lifelong friends. It has really changed the way I look at things. Thank you contiki, my tour manager, tour driver and all 39 on tour for the best month Ive ever had.
