GREAT EXPERIENCE ,BEST TIME OF MY LIFE !!!!!!

European Whirl 10 countries \ 19 days

14 Jul 2009 - 31 Jul 2009 \ I HAD HEARD A LOT ABOUT CONTIKI TOURS BUT WAS NOT PREPARED FOR SUCH AN AWESOME TRAVEL EXPERIENCE! FROM THE TIME I LEFT SOUTH AFRICA AND JOINED THE TOUR IN LONDON I HAD NO IDEA WHAT AN AMAZING 18 DAYS LAY AHEAD OF ME!  THE THOUGHT OF VISITING 10 COUNTRIES IN EUROPE IN 18 DAYS WAS VERY EXCITING.  TRAVELLING SOLO WAS QUITE DAUNTING BUT I NEEDN’T HAVE WORRIED AS EVERYONE WAS VERY FRIENDLY AND WE INSTANTLY CONNECTED AND BECAME GREAT MATES!  THE ORGANISATION AND STAFF FROM THE VERY BEGINING WERE OUTSTANDING AND NOTHING SEEMED TO BE TOO MUCH TROUBLE FOR THEM.  ALTHOUGH THE DISTANCES TRAVELLED ON THE BUS WERE LONG AND EXHAUSTING, THE COMFORT AND GREAT MUSIC HELPED TO GET EVERYONE INTO A PARTY MOOD AND SHORTENED THE TRIP CONSIDERABLY.  THE SCENERY THAT WE PASSED THROUGH IN EUROPE WAS TRULY SPECACTACULAR AND OUR TOUR LEADER MADE SURE WE DID NOT MISS A THING WHEN WE REACHED THE COUNTRY OF OUR DESTINATION. THE ACCOMMODATION WAS GENERALLY GOOD BUT THERE WERE A FEW PLACES THAT YOU HAD TO COME OUT OF YOUR OWN CUSHY COMFORT ZONE TO ADAPT TO - BUT, HEY, IT WAS ONLY A PLACE TO SLEEP AFTER ALL!  IT WAS GREAT TO TASTE THE TRADITIONAL DISHES OF EACH COUNTRY AND TO ENJOY GREAT RESTAURANTS WITH WONDERUL ATMOSPHERES.  EVERY EVENING WAS A PARTY! THE OPTIONAL ACTIVITIES OFFERED ON THIS TOUR WERE EXCEPTIONAL AND VERY WELL RESEARCHED.  I PARTICULARLY ENJOYED THE  WHITE WATER RAFTING & MOUNTAIN BIKING IN THE AUSTRIAN TYROL AND WOULD RECOMMEND TAKING THE OPPORTUNITY TO DO AS MANY OF THE ACITIVIES OFFERED AS POSSIBLE – WELL WORTH THE EXTRA EXPENSE. MY CONTIKI TOUR WAS ONE OF THE HIGHLIGHTS OF MY LIFE AND ALTHOUGH IT WAS NOT A CHEAP HOLIDAY IT WAS WELL WORTH SPENDING MY HARD EARNED SAVINGS ON!  IT WAS GREAT VALUE FOR MONEY AND A CHANCE TO MEET AND MAKE WONDERFUL FRIENDS FROM MANY DIFFERENT PARTS OF THE WORLD AND TO SHARE GREAT TIMES TOGETHER. I WOULD RECOMMEND A CONTIKI TOUR TO ANYBODY WANTING TO EXPERIENCE A LIFE CHANGING HOLIDAY – I AM ALREADY SAVING FOR MY NEXT ONE! GO CONTIKI I!!!
