European Magic (Winter) » Review by Alyssa
This trip was absolutely phenomenal. This was my first trip outside of the United States and I was pretty apprehensive and nervous. I went with my boyfriend and best friend and none of us really knew what to expect. I loved that all the tedious details were taken care of for us, it was cool to just show up and enjoy it. Our flight was great and I really enjoyed the hotel accommodations. I wasn't really looking forward to spending so much time on a bus but I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable it ended up being. The bus actually added something extra to the trip and I definitely looked forward to the long warm drives after exploring the cities in the cold all day. All the food and activities were amazing, and the other people in the tour group were as well. The best part of this trip was having all the security and care of the tour group, which was essentially a family and also having a huge amount of time to go on your own and experiance these places without a giant "tourist" sign over your head. Finally, our tour manager Jon and bus driver Szabi really made the trip worth while. They were incredibly cool, informative, and seriously dedicated to making our trip the best imaginable. I loved every minute of it, sad as hell it's over, and already planning the next one. Thanks Contiki!
