1) Croatian Island Cruising »

Recommended by Delphia W.,
Digital Marketing Manager/Travel junkie
My childhood music professors were from Croatia and they always showed me beautiful pictures and shared amazing stories about their country. A 10-day cruise to Split, Havar, Korcula, Dubrovnik, Trstenik, and Makarska sounds like heaven... I'm so ready for a vacation.

2) European Horizons »

Recommended by John N.,
Operations Coordinator for Latin America
I'm a history nerd and this trip is filled with historical sites and bucket-list worthy experiences. I'm jazzed to see the museums in Amsterdam, the festivities of the Rhine Valley and Munich, the amazing scenery in the Austrian Tyrol and the Swiss Alps, the canals and palazzos of Venice, not to mention Paris.

3) Italian Espresso »

Recommended by Andrea P.,
Graphic Designer & Volleyball Player
I'll keep it short and sweet. I've always wanted to go to Italy and be immersed in the food, culture, and art. The Italian Espresso trip goes to 3 great cities in only 9 days – Florence, Rome, Venice – making it an ideal trip for my
busy schedule.

4) European Encounter »

Recommended by Stephen M.,
Sales Coordinator
I've never been to Europe so I'm dying to see it all. The European Encounter is the perfect trip to get my fill of Europe – with 11 countries on the itinerary I won't miss a thing. Now's for the tricky part, getting 18 days of vacation time approved…oh to be a college student with summer vacation again!

5) Road to Athens »

Recommended by Alexandra P.,
Call Center Representative
This trip hits all the major spots in Western Europe. It travels through London, Paris, Lucerne, Munich, Austrian Tyrol, Venice, Florence, Rome, Athens, and even hops over to the Greek island of Corfu. Even better, the price is right! Once I save up enough vacation time, I'm there.

6) England & Scotland »

Recommended by Vy T.,
Public Relations
My fiancé and I have been eyeing this trip for quite some time. He is part Scottish and we really want to experience his heritage and the beautiful scenery firsthand. Not to mention England has amazing architecture, the pomp and circumstance surrounding the Royal Family, and a rich literary background.

7) Eastern Road »

Recommended by Brooke S.,
Sales & Marketing Coordinator
I've been on 5 Contikis and am ready to make this my 6th! Eastern Europe has always appealed to me – a lot of history, a bit of edge, and a ton of culture. This 14-day tour travels to Berlin, Prague, Vienna, Budapest, Krakow, and Warsaw. I can't wait to experience it all!

8) Mediterranean Trail »

Recommended by Michelle M.,
Director of Sales & Marketing
It's been so busy in the Contiki office lately, I'm thinking it's time to get away for some market research (wink, wink)! The Mediterranean Trail is top on my list; it has a good mix of beaches, culture, delicious food, nightlife and much-needed R&R. I've never been to Greece and can't wait to explore. June sounds good for this… hope to see
you there!

9) Egypt & The Nile »

Recommended by Heather M.,
Marketing Specialist
Egypt has been on my list since I was a little girl and Contiki's 9-day Egypt & the Nile tour is totally on my travel radar! The trip includes a Nile cruise and hits all the iconic spots – Pyramids of Giza, temples of Abu Simbel and Kom Ombo, Avenue of the Sphinxes, Valley of the Kings, and that's just naming a few!

10) Greek Island Hopping »

Recommended by Justin W.,
Jr. Web & Graphic Designer
Ever since my Greek art history teacher in college spoke about the beautiful scenery of Greece, I have been dying to experience it for myself. I've heard the Greek Island Hopping trip is an amazing experience and particularly look forward to experiencing the nightlife of Mykonos. This trip has all the essentials of an amazing vacation – a lot of relaxation, nightlife, and culture. Count
me in!
