Best New Years Ever!

30 Dec 2014 - 02 Jan 2015

Booked this trip last minute with my best friend and I'm so glad we did! We had a great time and met some really awesome people, it's a shame it was only a 4 day trip! Would have loved to continue travelling afterwards.

We booked the trip through another company, so we didn't know anything about Contiki until we departed. We had no idea there were going to be so many people! We definitely were not expecting to be in the minority of British people on the trip so that was really cool, making lots of new Australian/ American friends!

Contiki booked out a bar in a busy part of the city for New Years Eve which was free entry and 10 free drinks tokens (which was more than enough!). The bar itself wasn't anything special and was fairly small, but it was made fun by the people we were with.

There was plenty of time to go off exploring Amsterdam with your friends as well meeting up with the group during the evenings. The canal cruise on the last night was great, the perfect way to end the trip. Also the 'surprise trip' on the first night... definitely something not to miss!

I'm glad we decided to go with a group and not by ourselves as it meant we had solid plans for New Years Eve and weren't trying to find something to do, plus we were with a group of people we knew and liked which was really the best part.

I would definitely recommend this to anyone who's looking for something a little different to bring in the New Year!

I absolutely love Amsterdam!

This tour is amazing if you want to spend a good amount of time in this beautiful city. There was plenty of free time during the day to sightsee, and then Contiki had nights out planned for us in the evenings. New Years Eve was a crazy night with all the fireworks going off right above our heads and at our feet - it was so dangerous, be really careful of that. Also, Contiki took us to a club called Rain on NYE and there wasn't much of a celebration when the countdown reached midnight. It's good being with all the other people on the tour, but possibly finding a bigger, more exciting NYE party could be an idea. This type of tour would also be good to go on with a small group of friends. Being so short it's hard to make friends on tour, and on my tour most people were already with friends so they kept to themselves. Overall, this tour really confirmed my love for Amsterdam (and Contiki) and I would come back over and over again.

For my 1st time travelling solo this tour was fantastic, the hotel was perfect and new year club night was great had enough time to do my own things IE muesems, coffee shops and shopping and be with the group was just the right balance, had such a good time i've booked another new year with contiki to see in 2013.
