Mediterranean Trail plus 3 day Greek Island Cruise » Review by Stephanie
I just finished this tour, started on June 4th, 2014.
I went solo, I'm a 28 year old female, it was my first time overseas.
My group was awesome! I really enjoyed the other singles in the group and some of the couples were awesome too!
I did all of the optionals and some of them were WAY overpriced. $55 euro to get driven up to Santorini and just told to walk around and take the tram back? Ummmm no.
The optional dinners were ok… I was expecting the pizza and pasta to be a lot better than what they were in Italy.
The "overnight ferry" is a complete lie. We were on 2 ferries, without sleep, and had to check into our hotel at 5am. Breakfast was at 10!
Overall I would give the Mediterranean Trail portion of the trip a 8/10. The boat ride at Capri and George's boat made the trip. Athens is an AMAZING city.
The cruise portion of the trip is a complete rip-off. The itinerary makes it seem like you spend all day at the places (i had been waiting for Santorini for 4 months, only to spend 1.5 hours there), most of the time is spent on the boring ferry.
I will do a Contiki again for sure - just made sure there are no ferry rides as an add-on.
