Real experiences Europe



Make every moment count – that’s what our experiences are all about.

Travel is about the places you visit, but it’s what you do in that destination that really makes the difference. You want to be amazed. You want to connect to a culture. You want to do something utterly incredible; something you never even knew you could do.

We split our experiences into two groups - No Regrets Inclusions and Free Time Add-Ons. Look out for these on our trip pages in the itinerary section. See trips


No Regrets Inclusions

These are experiences included in the cost of your trip, that you just can’t afford to miss. Because if wine tasting in Tuscany isn’t an essential, then we don’t know what is.

Free Time Add-ons

Want to do something utterly awesome with your free time? Take your pick from our menu of Add-Ons. These are the kinds of experiences you never even imagined you’d be doing in Europe, available to buy once you’re on your trip.

Colosseum special access, Rome

Colosseum special access, Rome


You’re coming to Europe, so damn right you want to check off the Eiffel Tower, the Colosseum, the Acropolis, or that Insta-famous Santorini sunset. We’ll show you them all, but with a Contiki twist, like skipping the 100 person deep line, or giving you insider access for the ultimate view.

East Side Gallery, Berlin

Tapping into the local culture of Europe is what we pride ourselves on, and our experiences reflect this. Cooking classes, locally guided walks, street art tours and even dining with locals in their own homes are just some of the unique experiences we have to offer, and you can only get them with us.

Paraglide in Austria

Paraglide in Austria


With us, expect the unexpected. Who knew you’d be the one leading the plate smashing in Athens’ Plaka district dinner, or have the courage to brave the skies paragliding in the Austrian Alps? We did. We do heaps of things we know you’ll love. Let us surprise you.


It’s important. Time to discover on your own, to get off the beaten path. Even time to get lost. We organize a bunch of stuff, but all of our trips also include loads of free time each day, giving you the freedom to do your own thing.

Some of our trips spend 3 days in certain destinations, giving you extra free time to explore at your own pace. See trips
