Amazing adventure

23 Apr 2016 - 01 May 2016

This was my first Contiki Tour and it will not be my last! I met amazing new people and had the best tour manager and bus driver I could have imagined! This is the perfect trip if you want a taste of a lot of different countries! :)

So unbelievably epic! :D

10 May 2014 - 18 May 2014

This was my first Contiki tour, and the first thing I did when it was over was book another (honestly). I have a lot of friends who recommended Contiki but refused to tell me anything about it, saying you just have to experience it and then you would know. They were on point. I recommend doing most/all the optional activities as they are definitely value for money; the Budapest dinner cruise was beyond epic. My friends and parents paid in excess of 70 euro for their Gondola rides whilst Contiki provided for less than 30. Megs was my tour guide, if you get her; I envy you. She made the experience what it was with her infectious smile, organisation skills and extensive knowledge of all the places visited. My fellow travelers were amazing and ready to experience the world. I loved the Eastern European culture, cuisine and nightlife. I cannot recommend Contiki enough, and this tour. Get out there and do it, #noregrets!

Awesome tour! Saw a lot in 10 days! Very fast paced so you just get a "taste" of each city. Decent amount of free time to venture out on your own to explore. Our tour guide Emma was fantastic, very helpful and made the tour enjoyable. The accommodations were very good, most of them had air conditioning. The best optional was the salt mine tour near Krakow. Very little time spent in Rome (where the tour ends) so I would definitely recommend that you stay a few extra days after the tour ends to take in the sites the city has to offer. I would definitely recommend this tour!
