European Horizon

11 Jun 2013 - 20 Jun 2013

Had the best time on this tour, I couldn't of asked for anything else! Its a very full on contiki and you are always doing something and always on the go. So if you are keen to fit in as much as you can in as little time as possible, then this is the tour for you!
My tour manager was absolutely amazing and totally went above and beyond then what we expected, she always made sure we had an amazing time. I met so many awesome people and we all had fun partying and exploring all the different countries together.
I did all the optionals, which I think made it so much fun. You are on the coach a bit when you are going from country to country (but trust me this isn't a bad thing, as you use this time to catch up on sleep and get some energy for the next country)
I travelled solo and instantly made sooo many friends, so weather you are going solo or with friends you will fit right in!
I highly recommend this tour to everyone, just be prepared for the craziest time of your life. Cant wait to do another contiki :D

Road trip!!!

24 Apr 2013 - 03 May 2013

The European Horizon was a really fun road trip around Europe. It gave you a great taste of each country and allowed you to do the 'Best Of' in each place. It is a fast paced, action packed adventure! So much fun and lots of laughs!

09 Sep 2012 - 20 Sep 2012

First of all, fast paced trip, your in each country for a night and a half a day the next day for the most part. The tour group i happened to be in was very party oriented which was fine with me. I wouldn't say the trip was very "touristy". We did do some sight seeing but I chose this trip to get a taste of every country we went to and it did just that. From enjoying the red light district in Amsterdam and clubbing in Munich, to white water rafting in Austria and shopping in Paris. This tour did very well. The hostels and hotels are exactly what i thought they were going to be and i was fine with it.

Whirlwind Europe!

12 Jun 2012 - 21 Jun 2012

Wow, think my head's still spinning from this EPIC trip. If you want to see the best of Europe in the shortest time but still feel like you've experienced it- this is the tour for you. 7 countries in 10 days! Each day a new city, with amazing scenery, culture and night life. We had an amazing tour manger (Jac) and driver (Jamie)- these guys we're gold and knew their stuff, felt very safe in their hands! Some of the highlights have to be, paragliding in Austria, dressing up in Dirndl (authetic german dress) and hitting the beer hall, the gondola ride in Venice and the cabart in Paris. I went on my own and made 49 friends for life. As it's such a whirlwind tour we all got so close and still talk daily!

EPIC trip, EPIC people and EPIC places.

European Horizon was VERY fast, but I couldn't have asked for a better experience. I met so many amazing people from all around the world, and I am already planning on visiting some in the next few months. If you only have about 2 weeks to explore Europe, definitely do the Horizon. Explore London for a day and Explore Paris for an extra day and do the Horizon. The staff was great and excursions were amazing too! Definitely- whitewater raft in Austria, Paraglide and then take a bike ride of the town! Hands down one of the best days! Ton of fun, you can sleep when you come home :)

European Horizon = THE BEST

06 Aug 2012 - 17 Aug 2012

Get ready for a very FAST 10 days, but if you want to save money & time, everything is worth it!! Recommend every optional excursion (I did them all) but my favs were:

Booze cruise in Amsterdam (best way to get know everyone right from the start) Beer Hall in Munich (go out in Colt Fabric,best nightlife)
Paragliding in Austria (breathtaking)
Gondola Ride in Venice (buy some sparkling wine & sit back & enjoy the beautiful architecture)
Farewell Dinner in Paris (now have a love for escargot - snails!)

I didn't expect to meet people from all over the world! Now love Australians & Canadians, and our tour guide, Angus, was so knowledgeable/THE BEST! :)

Time of my life

14 Apr 2012 - 23 Apr 2012

The European Horizon trip was amazing, met some great people, had some awesome experiences, seen things with my own eyes that I have only ever dreamed of seeing.

Amsterdam was by far the craziest place of all, and the Canal Cruise is an absolute must!
Germany was just fantastic, from the sleepy little village of St Goar to the City of Munich, so much to see and I will be back to explore more of Germany in the future!
Austria was great, beaut scenery and the Paragliding was out of this world, have never experienced anything like this in my life! I wanted to do it again after landing! There are no words to describe the feeling of flying over the Austrian Snow Capped Alps.
Switzerland took my breath away that's for sure, and I was most looking forward to this part of the trip and it did not disappoint. So many awesome photo opportunities there.
Venice is insane, in a good way! The Gondola ride was fantastic and no trip to Venice is complete without this! Picture Perfect!
Paris was just AWESOME. Getting to see the Eiffel Tower with your own eyes is just hard to explain how great this was, and taking a stroll along the Champs-Élysées is definitely a must do!!

I would do it all over again, met great people and had a great taste of Europe. It is a very fast paced tour, but that is all part of the experience!

This trip was incredible! It was a great way to see many countries in a short amount of time. We got a taste of everywhere we went, but we were constantly on the move. I experienced almost all of the optional activities and enjoyed them. Taking the canal tour through Amsterdam was probably my favorite since it was at the beginning of the trip and gave us the opportunity to really get to know our tour mates and get ready for the crazy night we had ahead of us. Taking this trip was just what I needed at this point in my life. I met some incredible people from different parts of the world and we got to experience Europe together (most of us for the very first time). What a fantastic experience!

Great taste of Europe, Amazing Friends

12 Apr 2012 - 23 Apr 2012

European Horizon was amazing. Saw some beautiful sights, met some Incredible people, ate fantastic food! The staff was so fun and made sure we had the best time in the short period of time we had.

Paragliding in Austria is a MUST!!! As the boat cruise in Amsterdam...really all the optionals were great! Seeing the Eiffel Tower for the first time as you enter central Paris is breath taking, Switzerland is pure beauty, Venice amazing as you would expect. Great shopping areas in Munich. Dont Forget the chocolate, anywhere you see it buy some! Specially in Switzerland.

Highly recommend this trip. You spend a lot of time on the Bus but it helps to get to know your new friends better and have some rest after fun and very late nights!

Would do it again in a heart beat. I endend with incredible new experiences, some crazy pictures and life long friends!

Thanks Jamie & Jon!
Thanks Contiki!
