Best Time of My Life... So Far...

30 Aug 2014 - 20 Sep 2014

I've done a bit of travelling in my time but this tour has got to be the best one so far. Norway is so beautiful, I could look at my pictures all day. Russia: WOW. It's so different from any other country. The local guides there were friendly, funny and astonishingly knowledgeable. The three cities that we visited in Russia, to me, seemed very different from one another. The tour manager was amazing; Danny organised heaps of extra outings for the group and always made sure the special diet people were taken care of during meals. He was also heaps of fun along with the rest of the travellers on the tour. My favourite parts of the tour would probably be the Bobsledding in Lillehammer, the Boat Cruise to Helsinki and visiting Novgorod (because it's a beautiful little town on the river). I'll never forget what an amazing time I had on this tour and I would recommend it to anyone who wants to experience something new and different.

Important: this is for the SUPERIOR tour, not the BUDGET one that appears on the site right now.

This trip was one of those where a new "BEST" bubbles up at every city. Until this trip, my favorite cities in the world were a tie between Prague and Budapest. Then I saw Oslo and was in love. The scenery in Norway is jaw-dropping. Then it came Stockholm and I said: nothing can beat it. Well, I bit my tongue: St. Petersburg topped them all, what a wonderful place to be, completely loved it!

Our tour managers (Parri) and our driver (Jeremy) were the best, ever (and this was my 4th Contiki, so I should know LOL).
