Your comments clearly reflect the immaturity I encountered on the tour. I don't need to personally attacked. This isn't Facebook...a place for you to write childish comments. It is a site for people to write honest feedback on their experience. As you may notice there are many negative comments on here and Tripadvisor pertaining to Contiki tours highlighting the exact same issues I have discussed in my feedback. Ill be reporting your comments as abuse.

Wow, Michelle; reading your little sulk below only emphasises YOUR immaturity. We were a tour group of diverse travellers. A broad range of ages, nationalities and backgrounds. How you failed to interact and befriend any of us 51 passengers is beyond me. And really says something about you! I completely agree that you should have done your research before hand to find a tour that suits you. I find it rather ridiculous that you spent all that money without doing so! I would even suggest travelling by yourself too – since you don’t seem to get along with anyone! Contrary to your ridiculously unpopular belief; Hannah was a fantastic tour manager, who was organised, knowledgeable and very professional. Just because she was personable, and was experienced in her job enough to relate to all age groups, doesn’t mean she was encouraging ‘rowdy and drunk behaviour’ as you so falsely claim. In fact, the pub crawls (which were really the only alcohol related activity we engaged in) eventuated as per requests from some of the passengers – who wanted to experience nightlife in some cities we visited. Hannah kindly organised these for us, off her own back – almost all of which she did not even attend! One night where she did come out, she did not drink at all. As for you Michelle; many of us recall you being the biggest booze hag of them all! YOU were the one that isolated yourself from the group and went out drinking by yourself to the point of being shitfaced in hotel lobbies, requiring help from your fellow ‘childish passengers’ to walk you to your hotel room…. Many of whom you swore at and insulted. As for the profanity you recall spilling out of Hannah’s mouth all the time… Grow up. As much as you seem like it, we are not 12 years old anymore; the occasional swear word is not going to kill you. And occasional is all it was, I can assure anyone of that – not that it matters. Hannah maintained professionalism when you went to her sulking about how you weren’t having a good time. What did you expect? She was going to beg you to stay? She isn’t your mum, Michelle; she is a tour leader who encouraged you to make the best decision for YOU! You are indeed a keyboard warrior! Of course you didn’t have the balls to say any of this to our faces. Instead you chose to hide behind your computer and almost undoubtedly a bottle of something. (Maybe address your own drinking before you criticise everyone else’s!) Quite honesty, your negativity somewhat brought a slightly dull atmosphere to parts of our tour, I would like to thank you on behalf of the wonderful people on this tour for leaving us when you did. We had the time of our lives; and thankfully without someone as pathetic and as negative as you.

    I certainly won't be lowering myself to your standard of maturity Lauren to write any comments personally attacking you. 31 year olds don't do that. You must be a novelist, all the fanciful lies you made up. My feedback commented on the bitchiness and immaturity I encountered. Your comment has just cemented and highlighted this exact point.

Seen as we are all having our say, I think what you have done here goes to show you are just as childish as the rest of us! Using Hannah's name under such false pretences. She was an awesome tour manager and didn't do half the stuff she could have, to the respect of all of us!! If u think trafalgon was such a good tour you should have done it! Hannah hardly drank as she had loads of things to do and show us for the next day. And if I do recall you where the one drinking on ur own almost every night and did if I may quote say at the introduction of our tour say "I'm and alcoholic" seems a tat hippo critical if you ask me Michelle? I'm not on the other hand happy that you didn't enjoy yourself but you did exclude yourself very early on in the tour. I happen to also remember your room mate and she was one of the very shy and none drinking ones on the tour! Bitching and immaturity happens at all ages and is bound to happen when I whole group of new people are all stuck together, it's also away people get to know each other and then begin to make friendships. I believe there was only one pub crawl that we did and we made Hannah let us do it. I would say that she told you to leave the tour either but if you see someone upset and not liking where they wanna be or what they are doing wouldn't u suggest that they go where ever makes them happy? Cause I know if I was in the same place as you (wanting to leave) then I would take other people's advice and do so? To all contiki people looking at this post don't take one persons opinion over the 50 others who did the tour, it was perfectly planed and well ran, we all had the most amazing time and its thanks to you and people like Hannah who love there job!!! Done had my piece

    Steven, as I said to Lauren, I'm not going to personally attack you like you have done to me. Im not that immature. It would appear to me that you are all shocked and hurt at my statement commenting on the immaturity and bitchiness I encountered on the tour. I am entitled to write my honest opinion and I did. I'm 31 not 20, as the rest of you were, so of course I would encounter this. Im sure any person my age wouldnt want to travel with a bunch of kids for 3 weeks. Not once did I make reference to any of the tour passengers personally. As, apart from the general immaturity, I didn't have a problem with any of you. Maybe you should read alternative negative feedback to realise that my experience is similar to that of other people. People are entitled to publish negative feedback Steven. It shouldn't be bias.

I booked the European Inspiration tour for January 2012 and toured alone, however I terminated the tour in Prague. I was absolutely disgusted in the quality and the calibre of people on board the tour including the staff. It should be age banded 18-25 not 18-35. I am 31 and I have never experienced such childish, immature, bitchy behaviour in my life. I felt like I was back in high school. I was totally ostracised by everyone. Most people on the tour were 18-20. I should have done my research then I would have known Contiki has a bad name for that exact reason. Trafalgar would have been a much better option. The tour manager Hannah was very immature and seemed to enjoy the childish atmosphere. She encouraged everybody to be rowdy and drunk and was always getting drunk herself, she swore a lot and was very unprofessional....perhaps attempting to lower herself to the standard of the passengers on the tour. She even implied that I should terminate the tour! Every stop we had entailed pub crawls of which eventuated in the stranger I was sharing a room with stumbling in drunk at 2-3am every morning, turning on lights and making lots of noise. I've never been so sleep deprived in my life. What an absolute waste of $3500. I am flying back to London at a cost to myself to resume interacting with adults not children!!! Shame on you Contiki....no where on your website does it stipulate that this tour is basically a 3 week long party for young teens who wish to take drugs, get drunk and act like idiots. Contiki take some responsibility!!! I'm absolutely appalled!! I will definitely be sharing my horrible experience with others!
