Better to go by yourself

New Year in Paris 3 countries \ 4 days

29 Dec 2013 - 01 Jan 2014 \ Had a few misgivings with this tour: The hotel in Paris is in a "ghetto" (the words of our tour manager, not mine). There were nightly gatherings of hundreds of what he referred to as "gypsies" outside the hotel every night. We were made to pay for what was supposed to be our included meal (duck, escargot, etc), and then given dry chicken as our "included dinner" instead. New Year's Eve in Paris is very dangerous. Contiki will not provide transportation on that night (not surprising because it's impossible for traffic to move with literally thousands of drunk people clogging the streets like a mob). There are no fireworks at Eiffel Tower, just the sparkle lights that happen every night, on the hour. Don't expect to be able to get back to the hotel before 4 AM. Two drunk men harassed our entire floor in my hotel until early morning hours by screaming and trying to open all the doors. There was no phone in the room with which to call the front desk; very scary.

Independent London Travel

London Explorer - 5 Day 1 country \ 5 days

11 May 2011 - 15 May 2011 \ This is a great trip for those looking for a little taste of London and who aren't afraid to go it alone. While Contiki will provide a hotel and vouchers to some attractions, this is a SOLO trip. No group, no leader. Just you.

Taking a bite out of the Big Apple

New York Explorer 1 country \ 4 days

01 Sep 2009 - 04 Sep 2009 \ The only complaint I have it that there's so much to see in NYC and so little time to see it all in only 4 days! lol. There are enough optional activities to allow for group fun, but also enough free time for the more independent travellers.
