Had already booked flights to London for July 5th - August 5th to visit my sister and then was lucky enough to win a contiki European Experience trip! Now will be departing solo on July 11th and excited to meet new people and make the most of the sites, culture and big nights

Awesome! Highly recommended :)
European Experience 9 countries \ 22 days
11 Jul 2011 - 30 Jul 2011 \ This trip was one of the best times of my life! You get to see the main attractions of the bigger European cities, however I did leave some saying that there wasn’t enough time. But it encourages me to go back, which isn’t a terrible thing :) There is also a mix of historical and scenery towns and some nice down chill time so that you're not always going full ball. An awesome mix. Some of the optional activities are things I'd never seek out myself but I am so happy I did them! Worth the extra money. Don't pass up the opportunities! The tour manager was a great guy who could point us in the right directions during our free time for food etc., and teach you the language’s pleasantries, and our bus driver was such a character. Accommodation was actually better than expected. Staff at the cites were awesome too. The nights are quite focused around going out, or parties, drinking, and having a good time which I certainly enjoyed. Time to bond even more with your new life-long friends. I went alone and it is nothing to be intimated about! I would actually totally recommend it, it makes you come out of your shell quicker, and even more, and you will form even better relationships with the others. I think this tour was just about the perfect length. Take some vitamins before you go though, everyone but 1 person on my bus ended up getting 'contiki cough' throughout the trip. Went on this in July 2011 and enjoyed it so much am currently planning out my second Contiki :)
