Amazing! Scenery! Relaxing!

Outback Adventure (Start Darwin) 1 country \ 12 days

06 Aug 2014 - 16 Aug 2014 \ This tour truely has it all. It is one of my favourite tours I've ever done with Contiki. I'm a Person that likes to be impressed by nature, and truely that happened. We had a small Group (26 people) and although Contiki is traveling fast paced you have enough time time to relax during this trip. I appreciated it not to have big traffic, Clubs or Pubs in the outback. It's silent, breath-taking but NOT boring. It's a tour, also relaxing. The ideal combination for me. I'm looking forward to do more scenic Contiki tours. This nature touches your heart. ;-) I love it. Rebecca the tourmanager was very kind and funny. Australia forever.

Amazing Nature XXL Relaxing

Mexico-grande-2-tour-209x146

Interesting country

Mexico Grande 1 country \ 13 days

29 Jun 2013 - 11 Jul 2013 \ The tour is great but also exhausting. Me as a german not used to hot climate really needed time to cope with the high humidity in Ixtapa and Acapulco. Also the height of Mexico City, Morelia and Taxco can be exhausting. Nearly everybody felt a little sick (Food, Heat, Elevation). The tour is really great and in the end I needed "holidays". ;-) So stay a few more days longer in Cancun. It's worth it... and do the Mayan Jungle Encounter, it's so much fun. I'm glad having done this trip because it gave me 1000s of new impressions and many nice pictures. But it's a lot to see/experience in a short time. Traveling fast pace... and bring your own travel pharmacy, you'll need it.

North-by-north-east-start-new-york-city-tour-209x146

Nice but stressful!

North by North East 2 countries \ 13 days

03 Aug 2012 - 15 Aug 2012 \ This tour is very nice but also a bit stressful. It's City after City. Nightclubs, bars and Programme until 11pm. It can be exhausting and it was for me. After the 4th City you don't really see the difference anymore. It's just again, another City. The tour is great... but as I experienced not my biggest favourite as I prefer nature (Now I know... didn't know it then) If your into big cities and nightlife, this is your Thing. But I prefer a mixture of nature and cities in my Holidays... Strong tour, with a big night Programme...Clubs, bars and drinking oppurtunities. Highlight: Quebec, Niagara Falls. Cool, but not my favourite.

To the wild wild west....

Wild Western 1 country \ 14 days

27 Jul 2011 - 09 Aug 2011 \ I loved this tour. The Wild Western truely has it all. A great mixture of nature and cities. So you can have time to relax and time to Party on. Our tourmanager Jack Larsen was great. This tour has many 2 nightstops what holds back the fast pace contiki is usually traveling with. Vegas was a blast... The surprise is so funny. Do it. The Grand Canyon... Wow, best National Park I've ever seen. You can't stop being astonished. Highlights: Grand Canyon, Vegas, Yosemite.
