Our new group sizes vary for the best experience in every destination, whether it's a full crew for city adventures and dress up parties at our French château, or an intimate bunch of 8 to sail the south coast of Turkey in a traditional wooden gulet.
Trips with 15 people or less
On our Sailing trips in Greece, Turkey and Croatia, you’ll be sharing with 15 people or less to a boat.
Do it on: Turkish Sailing
Picture yourself floating in azure seas and soaking up the rays by day, eating home-cooked meals prepared on board the boat, lapping up the sunshine between afternoon snorkels, then turning it up for open air parties by night.
You’ll find trips of 15-30 people for specialist locations or experiences, like our Europe train trips, sailing along the Nile in Egypt, and travelling to Iceland, Africa and the Middle East.
Do it on: Rome to Barcelona by Train
You’ll still get the group vibes you’re looking for, (friends for life, always-ready camera crew, pre-bungy jump pep squad), with the added benefit of limited-occupancy experiences and accommodation - like whizzing cross-country on scenic trains or learning to make pesto in Cinque Terre, and staying at the plush Hotel Poet in La Spezia.
Our classic Contiki trips are more than 30 people, with a max of 53 and an average of about 45, depending on the season and trip.
Do it on: European Trail
Why is this still our most popular way to travel? Because travel is better together, and in these groups you’ll become part of a global family, inspiring each other, growing together and leaving with lifelong friends.
