Once in a life time

28 Jan 2012 - 12 Feb 2012

This trip was truly a once in a life time experience. Who else can say that they visited Rome when it was under a foot a snow. When you are confronted with weather conditions that may affect your tour you just have to go with the flow and find something else to do that will give you a memory like no other. We had ample free time to discover places for ourselves and treat ourselves to true local food and culture.

I would recommend this tour to anyone who is not scared of a little cold snow and just wants to have a good time. Our contiki crew were amazing and added to the experience of travelling through Europe. I also made friends for life.

European Encounter Freaking awesome!!!

17 Jan 2012 - 03 Feb 2012

The tour was GREAT!!! By far the best tour I've done. You meet amazing people whom you become really close friends with, and share awesome experiences. Our driver Dave is a monster in an Awesome way. He got us through snow storms in the mountains and amazed us with his driving skills. Our tour manager Dan was very knowledgeble. He gave us a decent amount of information about every country. He made it fun and exciting. Overall I would definetly recommend contiki to all my friends.

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!
