Aegean Classic (incl. 4 days cruising) » Review by Nicole
I recently went on this tour and I have to say it was better than expected!
the Tour Manager, Nicole, was always very helpful and knowledgeable.
I did most of the optional extras, bear in mine these will cost you an extra €220 (approx) and I would also highly recommend the drinks package, which is €80.00 extra.
The wake up calls were very early, 6am, but totally worth it! Every stop was breathtaking, and there was a lot to do and see.
This tour will be a little harder to get to know people as you are on a cruise ship and you wont be forced to hang around each other as much as other Contiki tours, but its just an opportunity to make an effort, and I certainly met some awesome people on this trip! :)
My favourite places i would say were Mykonos and Santorini, I wish I had more time there, just another reason to go back! :)
The cruise ship was very nice, cabins were small but that wasn't really a big deal, good entertainment on board and we even had a toga party which was really fun!
The food, was AMAZING, I couldn't stop eating, it was so much better than expected, you wont go hungry!
Only downside is that if you get sea sick you might not want to choose this tour, the last 2 nights were pretty rough and my friend travelling with me got quite sick from it.
Also, its a very exhausting tour, you wont get much downtime, but as I said its totally worth it anyway :)
