DAY 1 - Arrive Split
Split
Oh la la it's the Dalmatian coast and we are going to soak up that sun like the bosses that we are. On arrival, make tracks to your hotel and relax for the day, or take a stroll waterside for some people watching, and no doubt raising a glass of ice cold beer to toast the days ahead...because you can.
DAY 2 - Split to Dubrovnik
Split
Meet your new travel crew this morning and drive down the stunning Dalmatian coast toward Dubrovnik.
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See the fortified city and the Old Port
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Dinner Cruise
EUR 37.00
Bosnia & Herzegovina
Dubrovnik
The drive along the Dalmatian coastline to Dubrovnik is a sightseeing must do all on its own. On arrival in the city you'll be greeted by limestone walls; an Old Town filled with quintessentially Croatian cafes and plenty of clubs; and a mountain meets sea situation will see you falling in love within seconds. After you've been guided around the city by our team, you'll be armed with the knowledge to pick out a waterside rock bar where you can swim and indulge 'til your heart's content. Tonight over dinner with the crew, spirits will no doubt be high and the show's not over yet!
Stay
Petka Hotel (or similar)
DAY 3 - Dubronvik to Tirana via Budva
Dubrovnik
Now that we've done all things Dubrovnik, we'll coast our way to the Albanian city of Tirana. 
Budva
All good journeys are broken up by pit stops in Rivieras with sandy beaches, medieval towns & ancient relgious sites. Crossing into Budva, we'll make a lunch stop in Montenegro.
Tirana
We arrive in the capital city of Albania after some serious mountain landscapes. This city is buzzing with life since the post-communism in the 1990's, boasting buildings painted in bright primary colours, cool cafes, streets and parks that are perfect for exploring. Explore this hidden gem by night, then head to bed knowing that city hangs are a thing of the past with our next stop, two nights in sun-drenched Corfu. 
Stay
Doro City Hotel (or similar)
DAY 4 - Tirana to Corfu
Tirana
Goodbye city, hello beach hangs! It's southbound today into glorious Greece, one of the world's most sought-after holiday destinations and 100% bucketlist worthy. 
Corfu
With two days of sunshine ahead, spirits will be at an all time high. Get excited for the next two days over dinner with the group, no doubt grabbing some refreshments and exploring the island by night! 
Stay
Divani Palace (or similar)
DAY 5 - Corfu
Corfu
The best version of island time? Greek island time. And you'll settle straight into it on the dream scene of Corfu. A heritage listed old town, water sports aplenty & the option to hit the seas again on a cruise or devour an Ionian Dinner with the crew - this is what your first day in Greece will look like. 
NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS

DAY 6 - Corfu to Overnight Adriatic Ferry
Corfu
Another day, another chance to get salty & eat a smorgasbord of feta, olives and grapevines stuffed with delectable rice and kick back on island time. Before we lose all sense of reality and morph into sea-soaked island dwellers, we're making tracks to Italy for pizza, pasta and piazzas of course! After the sun has set, we'll set sail on our overnight ferry ride to Bari, where your feet will touch Italian soil.

Pompeii Guided Walking Tour
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Dinner ‘La Dolce Vita’
EUR 40.50
Pompeii
Once a totally vibing hang-out of the ancient Romans, Pompeii is now a living time capsule showcasing the remains of a Roman city and its residents, with walls, mosaics & activities perfectly preserved thanks to the catastrophic eruption of Mt Vesuvius covering the entire town with ash in 79AD. We're being treated to a guided walking tour around these real-life Roman streets. The saying 'stepping back in time' is about to take on a whole new meaning...
Rome
This afternoon we'll be jolted back to modern city life as we pull in to Rome, Italy's bustling capital. Gather your travel family and make the most of your final evening together with a special optional group dinner 'La Dolce Vita'.
Stay
Hotel Marco Aurelio (or similar)
DAY 9 - Depart Rome
Rome
The adventure packed with No Regrets moments has come to an end, oh how much we've seen! With social details swapped and phone numbers exchanged we farewell each other, no doubts with plans for a reunion trip already in full swing. Japan Unrivalled, anyone?

You will mostly see the inside of a bus rather than the world. Because the trip is so new our tour manager had no good tips on what to do to make the trip fun given that we were mostly in secluded hotels with no nightlife and the bus.

The starting location was not that convenient. Too far away from the city centre of Split and not reachable by public transport. Besides that everything was organised very well.

The whole tour was rushed and a little bit unorganised at times, the way the trip was described and what was actually delivered did not feel accurate. Really wasn't enough time in each place and way too much time spent on a bus.

Contiki's Split -> Rome Adriatic Spirit trip was a complete and utter waste of time, money and energy. The itinerary was incredibly misleading, listing several nonexistent tour "stops" such as Neum, Kotor and Bari - where we did not even leave the bus. This trip, which was essentially only an 8-day tour, included two wasted back-to-back days of 12-hour straight travel on the Coach Bus, in which we were told that we should not use the bathrooms for lack of place for the driver to empty the refuse, as well as a 12-hour overnight ferry ride between Greece and Italy in which we were warned not to interact with any of the other passengers on the ferry as they're known to be "creepy truck drivers." I paid upwards of 20 Euro to have 480 mb of data on the bus so that I could at least be connected to family during these mind-numbingly long and uncomfortable bus rides, and to my dismay, found that the bus wifi (like many of the promised tour "stops") did not actually exist. I'm still in the process of trying to get my wifi money back from Contiki. No activities were included in the $1355 USD I paid up-front for the trip. Instead of being supplied with a knowledgeable tour guide and going on walking tours or visiting museums to learn about each of the locations, we would simply get dropped off in the center of town for hours at a time, and told that we had "free time" to "explore" on our own. This was very disappointing as I hadn't done any of my own research ahead of the trip, as when signing up for an organized tour group such as Contiki, I expected to be guided. Rather, any and all of the activities required "add-on" fees, which I suspect went directly into the pocket of Contiki, as these activities were incredibly overpriced. For example, I paid 60 Euros for a Roman dinner which consisted of very simple, large-batch, disgusting microwaved food, and 40 Euro for water sports, which we were told by other tour guides go for 13 Euro regularly. I felt mislead and to put it simply, screwed over by Contiki time and time again on this trip. The accommodations that we stayed in were so far from the centers of the towns that we had to pay 10 Euro cab rides back and forth to get anywhere, which I did not budget for when planning out my trip. With flights to and from New York, the trip, all of the add-on activities, the endless cab rides and food, this 8-day trip cost me $3400 USD (which I would not describe as low-cost at all, which is what Contiki bills itself as) and was incredibly disappointing. I would caution anyone against taking this trip, unless you have a penchant for long bus rides and getting ripped off by Contiki.

Very oranganised and professional tour guide. I would have liked more included activities, even fun free activities that we good do as a group. It should also be made clear on the website that activities aren't included. Also a greater range of evening activities would have been good rather than just going out drinking every night.
