Breathless- in more ways than one

26 Oct 2012 - 18 Nov 2012

Only a few days ago I finished this tour. I am left breathless by the amount packed into this tour & how I have experienced Europe. It was amazing. There is no other way to pack all of this incredible adventuring into 24 days & contiki have shone by providing everything that a young traveller would need and want. I had such an fantastic time & if you are after the ultimate winter extravaganza, this is your tour!!!

Time of my life!!

29 Oct 2011 - 21 Nov 2011

I couldn't write nicer things about this tour. I had the most amazing experience, saw beautiful places and met awesome people! The tour manager and the driver were very helpful and educated, gave us really cool tips and organised everything! Try and do all the optionals, although it is good to wander off and explore the city youre at!
Bus rides are loong, so load your ipad/laptop etc with movies and books, and a pillow (or you can steal one from a hotel)...
Prague was my favourite city, it's really charming.

Wandering in Winter

20 Dec 2008 - 12 Jan 2009

Whilst I was hesitant about seeing Europe during winter, I must say this tour was the time of my life - 4 years later I still talk about it!

I found 24 days to be perfect, long enough to get to know everyone really well, but not too long that we were over the days of driving. By the end it was like saying goodbye to family, such a social, friendly bunch of people.

There was enough time to see all the 'big ticket' places and mostly I didnt feel rushed. The accomodation was better than expected, with Florence being the only real let down, also in Amsterdam we were a long way from town - someone got ill and it cost 120E to get back to the hotel!

The optionals were hit and miss, but everyone did almost everything - Moulin Rouge is a must!

Amazing experience, Amazing people. Fantastic Staff

03 Mar 2012 - 26 Mar 2012

What can I say - Both the holiday of, and the absolute time of my life. Left me wanting to go back for longer. This trip was the best way to see the best bets of Europe in a month. We had an unbelievably great Tour Manager (GO MIKE!!!!) who knew all there was needed to know, and pointed us in the right direction to show us the best bits of Europe, with all the tips and tricks to beat the lines and do it in more style than the every day tourist. The hours of work that went in from the Contiki Crew (Mike TM and Pete Bus driver) to get us all around, both of whom loved to join in the festivities at every available opportunity, and join in while we had the time of our lives.

Great Trip! Great People, Great Stafff, Great organisation, Great Food, Gread Drinking! GO CONTIKI!

Winter Wanderer 3/03/12 -Amazing!!!

03 Mar 2012 - 26 Mar 2012

I had the time of my life on this trip! Europe in winter is so beautiful and we only had 1 day of rain which happened to be a bus day. There was such a great group of people on my tour - a good mixture of groups, singles and couples. I made some great friends and excellent memories. I will definitely travel with Contiki again!!

Winter Wanderer 2012 January 10th

10 Jan 2012 - 02 Feb 2012

This was the best time! People were amazing, sights were amazing, weather was amazing (pure, dumb luck)... amazing! I have no other words.
The accommodation was better than i expected - mostly little hotel rooms but were all very comfortable and clean.
Bus driver was incredible.. one of the most talented drivers ive ever been witness to! got us through some very tight spots, and also spoke up and gave us hints on where to go in cities for some extra fun. also stopped off at a few towns that weren't on schedule, all his idea! awesome guy!
Tour manager was really cool, very good at his job! helped us out a lot with local customs and language issues - can be surprising what you don't know! also on free days/nights he would help us decide what we could do, or he would make a few calls and organise a restaurant/bar/club at night for some fun. was always prepared for everything. Altogether the crew was so so cool, couldn't have asked for any more!
Favourite cities were those which involved historical tours - Florence, Rome, Berlin... Even if history isn't your thing, there is so much to do! Stopped in Dresden for a while too (bus driver's suggestion - awesome!) and it was gorgeous!
Even the 'dreaded' long bus rides were fun - morning debriefs and discussion about the previous and next cities, chilling with your new mates, relaxing with some breathtaking scenery.. not really dreaded at all!
Would definitely recommend this trip! see everything, decent time in each city, don't have to really think or plan anything.. just jump on the bus and go where the wheels take you! this is the most 'holiday-esque' tour i think contiki does - so relaxed and easy going pace.
