BEST TIME OF MY LIFE

28 Mar 2016 - 11 May 2016

for everyone thinking this trip is to long, it isn't. I had the time of my life on this trip and made friends that I will have forever. Our tour guide told us we'd be like family at the end of the trip and all of us were like no we won't, but when it came to the last night I felt like I couldn't live without my contiki family.
Our contiki crew was awesome, shout out to Feddo and Timmy, they made the trip for all of us and all the insures were really inviting!
We seen so much in 45 days and it was incredible, it was so hard to choose my favorite place, I had so many!

but to wrap it all up, I definitely recommend this trip to anyone wanting so make friends forever and see the world! #fatbrokehappy

Aaamazing!!!

08 Jun 2014 - 22 Jul 2014

Highly highly recommend this trip. I had the absolute best time. You meet great people & have a great tour manager and driver. It's fast pace for the first half, very go go go but then you get to stop at the Greek Islands and soak up the sun, exactly what you need. Then the second half is a little less jam packed. This tour gives you the best of Europe in a relatively short time. 100% worth your money. If you're thinking about it, stop thinking & do #noregrets

Just book it!!

24 Apr 2016 - 07 Jun 2016

Literally the most amazing time of my life!!! I was excited but a little concerned booking such a long time but it literally flew by!!! You see soo many incredible sites, and I know everyone says it but make lifelong friends. 45 days with a bunch of people you are bound to make amazing memories. Tim and BeccyB our road crew went above and beyond to make sure we had a trip of a lifetime and made the trip what it was for all of us! At first coach days seem long but you will love it by the end time to chill out and catch up with mates what everyone's been upto, the best part is you don't need to organise barely any transportation other then nights out coming back home. Loved loved Greek islands, Budapest and the outdoor Austria and Switzerland!!! Everything was just amazing, just book it you won't regret it at all.

What a huge 45 days with a great tour team and people. I've written a blog about my experience so if you're crawling the internet like i did before my travels, this pretty much covers off what you get up to on the Ultimate European. Feel free to ask me any questions... Enjoy!

If you are looking through reviews for this Contiki tour, look no further. If you are on the fence about this tour, book it immediately.

I was you. To pay for this Contiki I had to make the decision to take out a loan, and being in debt isn't always good. So I was the very definition of on the fence. I wasn't in a good place and I felt that this trip would help. Boy was I glad I hit that 'Accept' button on the loan agreement and put a down payment on the tour.

This trip was worth every dollar. It takes you out of your comfort zone time and time again (believe me, this is life changing). It takes you to the most beautiful places in the world, with people that you will never forget.

It will be challenging. It will be out of your comfort zone. But most importantly, it will be one of the best experiences of your life.

Contiki's Ultimate European was the most exciting experience of my life. Not only did I experience so many cultures in the amount of time we had, but I made friends that I will have for a lifetime. This trip was worth all of my money and I recommend it to anyone wanting to travel Europe.

The best experience of my life

26 May 2013 - 09 Jul 2013

Wow where do I start! This tour was incredible & we all became 1 big happy family including our tour manager & bus driver! The sights we seen, the things we done & the people we met were amazing, awesome, no words can describe how good it actually was!

My favourite part of the tour was getting to see snow for the first in the Swiss Alps & learning how to snow board. Another highlight was Budapest, that city surprised me sooo much. It's cheap & looks incredible! They call it "The Paris of Eastern Europe" & I can see why. It's a beautiful city with sooo much to see & do & the nightlife is awesome!! As a bonus we were staying in an awesome hostel right in the middle of the action!!

The accommodation in all the places were good we had a couple of dodgy joints but by dodgy I mean no shower curtain or no remote for the air con but honestly we were there 1 night so it didn't make a difference & it makes the experience that much better as we all had a laugh about it.

The contiki stops & teams were awesome! They were some of the best meals I had on tour & you certainly don't go hungry.

I recommend you do all the optionals as they were awesome & you got value for money! I don't regret doing any & experiencing it with your new family makes it that much better!

This trip was definitely a massive eye opener to me as in what's out there in the big wide world & I'm currently planning my next big trip which includes 3 Contikis.
So if you are thinking about booking this tour do it! 45 days was not long enough & we all wanted to do the tour again & not leave each other. It was a sad day leaving the family but if I had the option I would do this tour again in a heart beat!
