Everything & More

12 May 2012 - 02 Jun 2012

The tour included everything that I thought it would and I feel like I definitely got my money's worth. Even though the trip was pressed for time to squeeze everything in, I got what I wanted out of every place. I loved the very top of the Eiffel tower, the Chateau de Croix in France, the Colosseum, Vatican City, the gondola's in Venice, and the paragliding in Austria.
I really appreciated the work that our tour Manager, Mike and driver, Andras put in to make it a successful trip. There were some bumps in the road but with these guys at the front of the coach they always made me feel taken care of. Mike's passion for the job and for Europe was clearly reflected during the tour with how he spoke about the different counties we were entering, to partying with us till the early hours of the morning even though we all had to be up early. Even his day sheets rocked :)
I would definitely recommend Contiki for the more intense traveler that likes adventure and to see everything humanly possible in the amount of time they are given, not for the people who consider vacation as sleeping in and laying on the beach all day.
I am currently saving up for another vacation, and I hope I am able to do it with Contiki.
