Good, not great

22 Sep 2012 - 28 Sep 2012

This tour was my second Contiki, and considering that I had an incredible first tour in the summer I decided to do another. I loved the cities themselves, Berlin is a wonderful, liberal, laid back city with a loaded history and many interesting sites and good food. Prague is simply enchanting and is a lovely city with well preserved medieval buildings. However, I was not happy with the accommodation, as we stayed in the Hotel Ibis in both cities, which I was taken aback by considering this was not one of their budget tours. I knew from day one it was not going to be as enjoyable as the summer Contiki I had gone on. The tour guide and bus driver were awesome, and they tried their best but the group dynamic was poor and awkward at best. The people on your group can effect your experience for the worse or better and in this case it was the former. A lot of weird people who were really cliquey kind of had something to do with these poor group dynamics. On top of all this the weather was horrible.
