Trip of a Lifetime!

23 May 2016 - 04 Jun 2016

This was my first time travelling solo and first time on a Contiki trip and it was the best trip I have ever been on! My tour mates were great and Our Tour Manager and Driver Emily and Firo were the best. My favourite moment was biking around the Aran Islands the views were amazing from the cliffs. It's a great way to meet people from all over the world and I highly recommend anyone considering to go on the trip!

Amazing!

06 Oct 2014 - 18 Oct 2014

Great trip, get to see all the famous sights, great value for money. Do it with an open mind and a positive attitude. Your there to experience a life changing moment, seize the day,

It would be nice if contiki offered age groups of 27-30, as well as 18-30. Not sure if this has been an offer in the past?

Best. Adventure. Ever.

31 Mar 2014 - 12 Apr 2014

For the last 10 years I've wanted to go to Ireland. I had a close family member pass and I realized life's too short. So I figured I'm going. If I'm going I might as well do Scotland as well.

I met some amazing people and new life long friends. I had the best times in Scotland and the best adventures in Ireland.

My favorite moment of the entire trip (and this was hard to come to the conclusion of) was biking around the Aran Islands.

Our tour manager, Jon and our driver Chris where beyond amazing. The trip would not have been as awesome without these two.

I would do this trip again in a heart beat. I would recommend it to everyone and I will.

No regrets.

Zero.

A Definite MUST!

27 Mar 2011 - 09 Apr 2011

I've always wanted to go to both countries since I was a kid, this trip was a dream come true! I wanted to join a tour group to get the absolute best experience and see as much as I could...for a reasonable price. I spoke to my travel agent, she recommended Contiki. I have no regrets, Mark, my tour guide was so nice, funny and really showed he cared about all the travelers. I saw a lot of what I wanted to see in Ireland and Scotland, and will never forget what an amazing trip this was. I always loved medieval history, and seeing the castles up close for myself..being able to touch them and imagine the battles that happened on the green, was an absolute breathtaking experience.
