"Italy is my favorite country, and Florence particularly - watch the vid for my top tip for a quick lunch."
"Paris is like a second home for me I love it so much. While I’ve been locked down, I’ve been cooking Beef Bourguignon to make me feel like I’m there."

For Contiki Trip Manager Emma and Driver Erno
"I knew that I wanted to propose to my girlfriend at the top of Mount Pilatus in the Swiss Alps. Emma and Erno went over and above to help make this happen, taking photos, arranging a room upgrade, rose petals, and champagne. Without the support of Emma and Erno, this trip would have just been amazing, not exceptional and extraordinary."
From Zachary, a Contiki traveler from the USA
Dear Tiago, Contiki Trip Driver
"I suffer from anxiety and PTSD and was extremely nervous before starting my trip. But after addressing my concerns with Tiago on day one – I was relieved to know I was in such good hands.The advice, life lessons and unwavering support Tiago provided me, not only made a huge impact on my mental health during the tour, but in everyday life also."
From a grateful Contiki traveler from Australia
For Contiki Trip Manager Carly
"Due to my physical disability I found Croatia challenging, but Carly was clearly aware of this and regularly checked in on how I was finding the trip and offered help. I have traveled with Contiki since 2008 completing over 14 Contiki trips! Carly stood out for her inclusive nature and positive energy throughout the trip inspiring me to continue to travel the world making lifelong friends and memories."
