Really enjoyed this trip although my friend and I arrived in Rome a few days earlier than the tour begin and I am very glad we did. The 2 days they scheduled for Rome was not enough. Otherwise, the trip went smoothly. Lots of time on at sea catching some sun. Our tour manager, Laura, was awesome! Def recommend this trip!

This is one of the best contiki tours out there- it attracts a great group of people and is such a wonderfully balanced trip. I did all of the optionals and did some of the best shopping in the south of Italy and right near our hotel at a marketplace in Athens. Very much missing these two weeks now!

I went on this trip alone never having ventured by myself anywhere and it was the best experience I've ever had, hands down. The sights were so beautiful - Sorrento especially in my opinion - not to mention all the historical sites. The group was amazing, such a great dynamic and so much fun. Any time I feel down I listen to our song (Raise Your Glass) and it takes me back to that happy place! I would highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants to have a healthy balance between sightseeing and fun at the beach.

This was one of the best decisions I've made! I did this tour over the summer with my brother. It was absolutely amazing. I had an awesome tour group and the BEST tour guide (Beatrice, aka Bea) who was super fun and very knowledgeable of where to go, what to see and the history of what we were visiting. This trip was the perfect combination of history (I'm totally a history nut), fun (awesome parties, ESPECIALLY the toga party in Corfu) and relaxation (the beaches in Corfu, spectacular). Accommodation was great also. Friendly, helpful staff, close to transit and not to far out from the city (comes in handy on those late nights at the disco and you need a taxi back!). If anyone is interested in this tour, I've got one thing to say .. DO IT! My only regret was not doing the island cruise!
Recommendations for optional excursions:
- Walking tour of Rome (entry to Colosseum and the forum).
- Pompeii, such a beautiful city. The history behind it is amazing and the view of Mt. Vesuvius in the towns old square is unforgettable.
- Corfu water sports. Para sailing, tubing, the banana and so much more!
- TOGA, TOGA, TOGA! The toga party in Corfu is a must do! So much fun.
- Do all the optional dinner excursions. They're a lot of fun, good food and a great time to bond with your tour group. Our guide also recommended a lot of disco's to visit after it. They're a lot of fun!
I can't wait to do another Contiki!
