World Festivals

Weird and wonderful world festivals!

There are some amazing festivals out there for you to experience!

Knock back a stein of beer at Oktoberfest or marvel at the Edinburgh Military Tattoo against the majestic backdrop of Edinburgh castle.

Ever thought about jumping on a plane for something like this, but didn’t think it would be worth it for just a couple of days? Well why not combine a world festival with a Contiki getaway! How about partying it up at Sydney’s Mardi Gras and capping it off with one of our amazing trips along the stunning Australian coastline.

Sound like your sort of thing?
