There are some pretty cool ways to explore a new destination. You can cycle, walk or even hop on a scooter. But nothing is quite as fun as learning about a new culture with your travel squad by your side, in the comfort of a bus. As well as your Tour Manager we also use expert Local Guides who'll give you a unique insider's perspective on the places you visit. It's the special angle only a local can give. I mean, who could turn down a hop on hop off bus tour of Edinburgh, a city steeped in history? Or an in-depth guided tour through the charming streets of Amsterdam?
Contiki bus tours have the perfect balance of hitting the historical sights, famous spots and quintessential must do’s while also uncovering local secrets and going off the beaten track to ensure your experience is nothing short of authentic through and through. All the ingredients to make that epic trip of a lifetime to Europe or South America all the more special. We don’t believe you should be paying extra for the essentials, so we include the very best guided tours and sightseeing experiences as part of the package. Sound too good to be true? It’s probably best to find out for yourself…
If you want to see all the sites in Europe during peak season, it can be pretty expensive. Cities like London & Paris are notoriously expensive, and when you factor in food, accommodation and transport the costs can add up. That's why we offer all-encompassing tours, where you can hit the highlights your way, with food, transport, accommodation and social interactions all included in the cost, as well as optional add ons so you can customise your itinerary. Travelling with Contiki means your trip, your way, but is also a great way to stay in control of how much your European adventure costs.
Is there a hop on hop off bus in Madrid?
We offer plenty of itineraries that head through Madrid, allowing you to enjoy Spain's regal capital. Lively and beautiful, Madrid has historic culture, bright blue skies, fascinating architecture and a delicious culinary scene. We have a bus that runs through Madrid, which allows you to see the Gran Via, Royal Palace and more, with an additional opportunity to check out the capital's booming nightlife.
Which European tour company is best?
We may be a little biased here, but we think that no one can do what we do like we do. We've been around since 1962 for a reason, and continue to offer our travellers unique travel experiences, delicious food, cool accommodation and incredible social bonds that you simply can't find elsewhere. Check out what we do and take one of our epic European adventures for yourself.
