AMAZING TRIP - ID DO IT AGAIN!

My Contiki was: usa, hollywood, movies

It was an awesome Trip with loads to see! The optionals were worth every Penny! Harry Potter fans get to see the cafe where she wrote Harry Potter or the graveyard with the characters names... Went for a dip in Loch Ness, fun but very cold ( 2 degree Celsius)... Scottish night with bagpipper was fun and the ghost walk in York was creepy but fun! Great group of people and a amazing contiki Team!

My Contiki was: TimeOfMyLife, Amazing , NoRegrets

This trip was so much fun. I was nervous about traveling alone but I met so many great people with the Contiki group. It was a great atmosphere and everyone was really fun and friendly. Dublin city was awesome. We did a walking tour, went to the Guinness storehouse, saw some authentic Irish dancing and music, and just generally had a great time exploring the city. Our tour guide, Ian, gave us great tips and got us around the city really well. I went on to travel to a few other countries without the group, but I can say that I had the most fun in Dublin with Contiki. I would definitely recommend this trip!

Eastern Escapade

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Amazing

Great trip, get to see all the famous sights, great value for money. Do it with an open mind and a positive attitude. Your there to experience a life changing moment, seize the day,

It would be nice if contiki offered age groups of 27-30, as well as 18-30. Not sure if this has been an offer in the past.

European Magic (Winter)

★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Magical!

If you never been to Europe before this is the best introduction tour to everything you will want to experience. It gives you a taste of what Europe has to offer in a decent amount of time. Some say that a 10 day tour is too short, but it was the perfect amount of time for me as I couldn't take more than 2 weeks off from work. I would highly recommended this tour for first time travelers to this area who don't have their heart set on one specific country.

Accommodations, transport, food, optionals and the Contiki crew exceeded my expectations 150%! Taking a Contiki tour really eliminates of the stresses of travel, they take care of all the stuff you don't want to deal with while on vacation so you can focus on having FUN! Plus you are traveling with 50 other like-minded people who want to have the same experience you do, so its very easy to make friends fast, so don't worry if you are traveling solo like I did.

I just got back home and I am already planning where I want to go on my second Contiki. Trust me, if you book this tour or any other Contiki tour you will have "#noregrets". Also if you get Megs as your Tour Manager or OJ as your driver you are in for a real treat! I couldn't imagine doing this tour without these two! They were both AMAZING!!!

You will instantly fall in love with Croatia! Beautiful country, awesome people and with Contiki you can never go wrong. Made great friends, the crew on the boat was absolutely fantastic and the tour guide was fabulous. I would recommend this to anybody, whether you are travelling alone or as a couple.

I had the best time of my entire life on this Contiki Tour - I HIGHLY recommend this trip. This was my first Contiki trip, and it will not be my last.
This tour provides the best of everything: lots of time with the tour guides, who will wake up early to provide amazing information on the cities and landmarks in the wildly ancient city of Athens and islands in Greece and still come out to party with you late into the night; amazing relaxation on the beautiful beaches on the islands and gorgeous pools at the hotel; incredible excursions and ME time optionals that you must absolutely choose to do (don't miss even one!); such an exciting nightlife; and friendships that will last a LIFETIME.
The tour guides MJ and Stacey were so much fun, and so kind. They really listened to all of us, considered our interests and feelings along the way, and tried to provide the best of the best in entertainment, food, and nightlife all along the way.
Best advice that I can give: fully enjoy the party scene (especially in the islands) at night, but DO NOT miss the excursions the next day simply because you are too tired or too hungover to wake up. Some of the best excursion days were the ones that occurred the morning after an extremely long night of partying. The volcano hike and donkey riding in Santorini, for example. Don't miss it!
Enjoy every second of the trip, enjoy the long lasting friendships that you make, take advantage of the free time by relaxing by the pool or shopping in the towns, eat all the local cuisine you can, take quick catnaps whenever you can in order to make the most of the pub crawls at night, while still waking up the next day to enjoy the excursions.
The only unfortunate thing was that there are a lot of additional costs for these optional excursions. Almost every special thing we did was "optional", but if you missed them, you'd really miss a lot of the bonding time and wonderful memories of the trip. Factor all of these costs in when deciding to book this trip. You should partake in all of them, but they are an additional cost that the tour guides will ask you for on the first couple of days of your trip. Be prepared to pay for them then.
There are a few ferry rides, and most of them aren't too long or rough, and that is really the only major transportation you will use on this trip. A great thing is that you will not spend most of your time on a bus, like a lot of other tours. We really only took a coach bus to get us to and from some restaurants, or to and from the ferry and the hotels. You will walk lots (probably no need for heels, ladies!) so you'll get to experience the culture and excitement of the cities and islands firsthand, every step of the way.
All in all, you won't sleep, you'll eat way too much, you'll party LOTS, and you will actually have the most amazing time of your life. Why haven't you booked yet?!
