I Love to travel & explore the world. Traveled a lot to South America but now venturing into Europe & Eastern Countries. I own 2 small businesses in the U.S. & a personal goal of mine is to be able to travel 2 months out of each year. I love music, learning about other cultures, surfing, diving, traveling & meeting new people.

MitchG hasn't gone Contiki yet.

Oh nice! Which countries does yours include? I did the 21 day european one like 15 years ago. It went to Spain France Italy London Greece and the Greek islands I think. You will love it and you're going to to love europe. The one I may go on is brand new and I think it does Spain portugal and morocco?? I travel to europe a I was trying to go somewhere I've never been. This solo thing is crazy but I think I just need to do it once in my life...and I was a fan of contiki. So there's a Scotland Ireland one that sounds good. That's so funny because I'm planning on going May or June. Btw I've never done this message thing so I hope I'm doing it right

    I'll be going to London, Amsterdam, Berlin, Munich, Prague, Austria, 3 spots in Italy, Switzerland & France. That's rad you get to travel there often. I should ask you for recommendations! Haha. I'm actually looking forward to going alone so I can meet all new people...My family thinks I'm crazy though haha. Your route sounds awesome! I wanted to hit Spain but decided to save it for another trip!

    Hey! Nice to meet someone else from OC! I'm doing Europe by myself too. I've been trying to go for the last 5 years but none of my friends wanted to go haha. I've actually never been to Europe or on Contiki so I don't have any recommendations unfortunately :/ I ended up booking the European Inspiration tour in May. I just liked that it hit a lot of the main countries I want to see. What does the Portugal & Spain trip look like?

European Whirl or European Inspirations?

I'm looking at these two tours mainly. They're both pretty much the same length and visit everywhere I want to go for my first trip to Europe. The main differences I am seeing is the accommodations, price & a few different stops from each other. My questions are: 1) On the European Inspiration, does anyone know if they stop long enough in the Austrian Tyrol to where you can actually explore a little bit? Is the Austrian Tyrol worth staying over night, like in the European Whirl tour? 2) Does anyone have any experience staying in the Hostels/Contiki Villages vs. staying in just hotels? I've never stayed in a Hostel and am not sure what to expect but they don't seem bad.

Hey Mitch I did the London To Athens Budget Tour back in 2012 and it was amazing! It was the perfect amount of time. Then after I spent two weeks in Greece was is the most amazing country :) I'm actually planning on doing another tour May/June 2015. If you need any info let me know and I will try and pass on my travel knowledge!

    Thanks Kourtenay! That trip sounds amazing. I keep looking at the European packages when I have time and am really liking the European Whirl or European Vista too. It's tough to decide but I like the amount of ground that's covered in those packages. I'm going in May/June of 2015 too so I'm anxious to see what tours are available for those times. Have you done any tours like that?
