This trip was amazing ! We had a nice group of about 34, and we all became a big family ! The percentage of girls was quite a bit higher than boys, but everyone got along so was good ! We all got to know each other especially on the coach and the group dinners. From my experience I would definitely try mixing and hanging out with a different group to get to know the people more.
I would definitely recommend doing all the optionals, they definitely make your trip more interesting and are really worth it. Some of the walking tours did seem to put a few people to sleep, but you would pick up the odd fun fact.
I think the time spent in each place is perfect, I would only recommended more time in Spain, so make the most of it there!
Nice and Corfu would definitely be stand out places for me, and seeing the Eiffel Tower at night was amazing.
Accommodation was good, the cabins at the campsites were surprisingly modern and the contiki chateau was really good.
Our contiki crew were the best you could ask for, their knowledge and skills were beyond incredible. They definitely play a big part on your experience, and they definitely do their best to ensure you have the best time. #contikipenguin #contikijoaog

This was the best trip ever!
It was so much better doing less countries but having more time in each, you really need the extra time especially in Spain! You get to pretty much follow other contikis around as well so you'll always be meeting knew people.
If you're a guy and looking for females you would love this trip because it was 90% females. but still so much fun. highly recommend it!

This tour was truly the trip of a lifetime. I couldn't have asked for better people, tour managers or drivers to be apart of my experience. Their knowledge of every spot only heightened my experience, and they went above and beyond to make it a special experience for all of us. I highly recommend this as a solo traveller as there were lot's of other solo traveller's as well as small 2-3 person groups. Go on EVERY Me Time Optional, it only enhances your experience in each city and gets you closer with your group. Lot's of food and drinks, sites, and memories. This trip gives you a taste of each city's culture, food, and sites, hitting all the most important. Most definitely an experience that I will never regret and that I highly recommend to anyone.
