The Southern Trail

Best 3 weeks of my life!

27 May 2014 - 16 Jun 2014

I booked this trip only a few weeks before leaving and was a little unsure if I had had chosen the right tour as I herd it had a bit of a "boozy" reputation... it turned out to be one of the best decisions of my life, not only did this tour cover an amazing range of places across the 3 weeks but our tour crew, Grant ( tour guide), Kayla (our amazing cook) and Jamie (Coach Driver) really made this tour one to remember.
It was super well organised, the food was outstanding especially considering this was a camping trip! Kayla our cook went above and beyond to give us a goumet taste of each culture which was so appreciated. I was also a bit nervous about camping for 21 days, but after talking to other Contiki groups along the way that were doing hotel/hostel tours i think our group was pretty lucky and were a lot more social sleeping, eating, drinking and hanging out around the camp together and as a result we all really bonded.
I'll never forget this trip and the people I shared it with I really couldn't recommend Contiki enough, it definately is the best way to travel in your 20s/30s, you will not regret it!
