London & Paris Aug 2015

15 Aug 2015 - 21 Aug 2015

I can honestly say this was one of the best experiences of my life. the trip manager Jake was amazing. very knowledgable and friendly and because of him i will book contiki again :) the time spent in each city was spectacular. you get a feel for what each city has to offer. the group dynamic was super fun. I now have 38 new friends that i will remember for a life time. some of the best parts was getting to know everyone and who they are on the inside.

i'd say the only small part that can be improved upon is the transition from london to paris. it would be better to take the eurostar train for 3hrs instead of traveling the whole day to Paris, but still an amazing time regardless.

Amazing time!

27 Jun 2015 - 03 Jul 2015

This was my very first Contiki trip- I'm very happy for choosing to dip my feet in the water it this as my first while being a solo traveller. I was very excited to see we had 42 people in our group! I made quite a few friends :)

Katrina was my tour manager and she was very knowledgeable in everything we did sharing fun facts and historic information. Tyson was our driver in the coach and he was very real and friendly! My favourite part of the trip was the "Me time" Moulin Rouge option. I took so many outstanding photos but how can you not with the scenery and architecture that was around us! We ran into an issue where the ferries were on strike and sadly we didn't get to Paris as quickly as we hoped but Katrina handled it and got us on a ferry the same day. I would definitely recommend this memorable trip to anyone who wants to learn about London, Paris and its fantastic monuments. Well worth the money! No regrets

Great trip and intro to Europe!

04 Apr 2015 - 10 Apr 2015

This was my first time travelling overseas from Canada and I loved it! Paris and London were two great cities to start in! Our tour manager Katie, was amazing and very knowledgeable of both locations, giving us all the tips and tricks - the Street Art optional tour in London was awesome as well as the Jack the Ripper tour - Pepe is a great local tour guide, and is from the area! Visit Camden market while you're there. Very neat spot and the tube makes everything so easy and accessible! Paris was unreal and the Moulin Rouge was worth it - I wasn't too sure if I should do it but so glad I did! ALSO - the bike tour in Paris had me feeling like a local, riding around the busy streets of Paris checking out all the sites! The final night dinner, in the Montmarte district near the Sacre Coeur was awesome and I wish I would have spent more time there! If you are looking for a good trip to visit both these cities in depth, this is awesome!

Amazing trip - do yourself the favor!

21 Mar 2015 - 27 Mar 2015

The trip blew away my expectations. It was my first time traveling alone and my first time out of the United states and it was absolutely amazing. I ended up doing my own thing more than doing the planned trips but I still felt part of the group when we did things together. I really got to make this my own trip with the safety and comfort of being with a group and an amazing tour manager. I definitely suggest adding time to the trip as it went by so quickly! All in all though I saw more in the 7 days then I had even hoped to. It was the best experience of my life. The hotels were very nice as well and the food was phenomenal.

Loved it!

10 Jan 2015 - 16 Jan 2015

Lots of sightseeing packed into this trip! Absolutely loved every minute of it, and I liked the fact that I did this trip during the winter "off season" months because the sights weren't jammed packed with long lines. The accommodation was better than I expected, very clean and safe locations. The food was also excellent, and you get plenty of me time mixed with the scheduled excursions. I would definitely recommend this trip to anyone. Loved seeing the Moulin Rouge (def go to the show) and the farewell dinner offered a beautiful view over the city of Paris (just be prepared to climb, it's at the top of the city). Also I went out one night by myself in London to a Latin nightclub and had a blast!!! Couldn't find anyone that wanted to go with me, and I'm glad I didn't let that stop me from going. Also the last night to party in Paris was so much fun, it's basically a bar where other contiki groups meet up. The bartenders there were so friendly and it was nice that they all spoke English as well :)

Dream come true!!!

21 Feb 2015 - 27 Feb 2015

I had my doubts at first but I am so glad I did this trip with contiki. Evan our tour guide was amazing , funny and informative at the same time with the Polish Prince driving the coach bus, it was a recipe for a good time. At first I wasn't too excited about taking the ferry but in the end it was worth seeing the white cliffs of Dover. Got to meet different people from around the world and made memories together exploring these cities. Seeing the Eiffel Tower at night was like magic.The best and saddest night was our "last supper" in Paris at the La Bonne Franquette restaurant. The food was amazing, try the escargots they are delicious! The pianist unforgettable ,lol. The only thing I regret is not doing the extension in Paris, but that'll just give me more of a reason to return. Loved this trip. #NoRegrets !!

London &Paris Review

25 Jan 2013 - 01 Feb 2013

First stop was London England. I had no idea how in love with this city I would fall. As an American it was so fascinating to see where our ancestors came from. That first night we all met in the hotel lobby, had dinner and took a walking tour of the local pubs. It was cold and raining. Everything you think of when you think of London weather. The tour consisted of 50 of us. 90% Australians, a few Canadians, South Africans and Americans. The group bonded right away over warm beer at the local pub. My roommate was a 21 year old Australian college student whom wound up being way more responsible than I. These types of tours have something for everyone. Yes those other reviews are true saying there is a lot of drinking and hook ups. But not everyone was into that scene and you are free to choose. My old age caught up with me so I did a little of both. While in London we went to the Roman Bath Houses, Stonehenge, Buckingham Palace, rode the London Eye and even saw a show. Before we knew it we were on a ferry to Paris France. My fondest memory was riding in the coach with Candle in the Wind playing through the tunnel Princess Diana died. The end of the tunnel was our first glimpse of the Eiffel Tower. I was so happy and overwhelmed I cried. Next stop was right to the top of the Eiffel tower of course. For 10 euro a few of us got a glass of champagne at the top and just took in the view while sipping the champagne. In the following days we saw Moulin Rogue, Caste of Versailles, Saw the Mona Lisa in the Louvre, got lost on the subway and went on a wild cab ride to the wrong hotel. On the free day the girls chose to go shopping and eat macrons while the boys went to the Catacombs. This tour was a 10 out of 10. It surpassed everything I could have ever imagined. My only complaint is that it was to short. The tour offers a Paris or Rome extension. I recommend doing the Paris extension and leaving Rome to another trip. A year later I am still in contact daily with many people I met on this tour. For more travel reviews, pictures and advice go to my blog Foxyfontana.com

London And Paris with a suprise visit to Amsterdam

26 Dec 2013 - 02 Jan 2014

London and paris was amazing, I absolutely loved the people I was with and my tour manager and bus driver were amazing people and they both helped all of us greatly. I decided to follow the tour to Amsterdam so I could stay in Europe longer and that was the best decision I ever made. Amsterdam was simply incredible. I highly recommend this trip.
