European Encounter (Winter)
★ ★ ★ ★ ☆

Epic European adventure!

03 Nov 2011 - 20 Nov 2011

This tour was amazing! A great way to see a lot of Europe in a short amount of time. There were so many optionals to choose from, though the most memorable for me were the trip up Mt. Pilatus in Lucerne and the Moulin Rouge in Paris. The accommodations, for the most part, were pretty good. The only thing I wasn't thrilled about was having to share one key with my roommate.
The Contiki crew was awesome! Our Tour Manager, Krista, was very helpful and knowledgeable about each of the places we visited. Her sunny personality kept our group lively and happy. Gustavo, our Tour Driver, transported us in a safe and timely manner, and he, too was awesome.
Our group was like one big, happy dysfunctional family. Most of my tour mates were Australian, but it was great meeting everyone from all parts of the globe. We all keep in touch via Facebook, which is great! It was also fun meeting up with other Contiki tour groups on some of our stops.
I highly recommend this tour to everyone, especially those who want to see all that Western Europe has to offer (and are on a time constraint) and want to make great friends from all over the world.

This trip was the most fun I have ever had, the people I met and the places I went were amazing! Whether you travel by yourself or with others Contiki made everyones trip fun! The excursions were great and I had a fantastic time. The driver, Tyson, and the tour manager, Steve, made the trip so much better and I am sure all Contiki employees are as much fun and as great a people as they are!

I will be recommending Contiki to ALL of my friends.

Thank you Contiki for a fantastic time!
