I absolutely love Amsterdam!

This tour is amazing if you want to spend a good amount of time in this beautiful city. There was plenty of free time during the day to sightsee, and then Contiki had nights out planned for us in the evenings. New Years Eve was a crazy night with all the fireworks going off right above our heads and at our feet - it was so dangerous, be really careful of that. Also, Contiki took us to a club called Rain on NYE and there wasn't much of a celebration when the countdown reached midnight. It's good being with all the other people on the tour, but possibly finding a bigger, more exciting NYE party could be an idea. This type of tour would also be good to go on with a small group of friends. Being so short it's hard to make friends on tour, and on my tour most people were already with friends so they kept to themselves. Overall, this tour really confirmed my love for Amsterdam (and Contiki) and I would come back over and over again.

My Contiki was: Beautiful-Love-Crazy

Amsterdam new year

For my 1st time travelling solo this tour was fantastic, the hotel was perfect and new year club night was great had enough time to do my own things IE muesems, coffee shops and shopping and be with the group was just the right balance, had such a good time i've booked another new year with contiki to see in 2013.

Best New Years Ever!

Booked this trip last minute with my best friend and I'm so glad we did! We had a great time and met some really awesome people, it's a shame it was only a 4 day trip! Would have loved to continue travelling afterwards. We booked the trip through another company, so we didn't know anything about Contiki until we departed. We had no idea there were going to be so many people! We definitely were not expecting to be in the minority of British people on the trip so that was really cool, making lots of new Australian/ American friends! Contiki booked out a bar in a busy part of the city for New Years Eve which was free entry and 10 free drinks tokens (which was more than enough!). The bar itself wasn't anything special and was fairly small, but it was made fun by the people we were with. There was plenty of time to go off exploring Amsterdam with your friends as well meeting up with the group during the evenings. The canal cruise on the last night was great, the perfect way to end the trip. Also the 'surprise trip' on the first night... definitely something not to miss! I'm glad we decided to go with a group and not by ourselves as it meant we had solid plans for New Years Eve and weren't trying to find something to do, plus we were with a group of people we knew and liked which was really the best part. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who's looking for something a little different to bring in the New Year!

My Contiki was: Amazing-Hilarious-Boozy!

Disappointed

I was actually pretty disappointed with this NYE Amsterdam tour for a few reasons. Several of these reasons are due to the lack of information Contiki provided before the tour. First off, on the day that we traveled from London to Amsterdam, Contiki did not explain the travel time would be 12 hours. We took a bus, a ferry, then a bus again. I really wish this would have been explained better on the itinerary online, as I likely would have not booked knowing an entire day was travel time. The itinerary also highlights that during that, we would see the "White Cliffs of Dover." We definitely did not get out of the bus to see these closer or even had the chance to take a quick photo before the ferry ride. When we finally arrived in Amsterdam, our "hotel," which was supposed to be "Superior Level," we found it to be musty, moldy, and about a 15 - 20 minute drive from the downtown area. Again, had this been highlighted on the site itinerary, I would not have booked. We actually did not even receive the hotel name until about 2 weeks prior to the trip, and we could not cancel at that point. I looked up prices to very nice, 3 or 4 star hotels downtown, and they were similar in price that what Contiki was charging us for hotel +transportation. This required travelers to take a cab or public transportation back to the hotel (which wasn't in the safest area). It was definitely not walking distance. I also traveled with a friend, my sister and her husband. My friend and I were on the same bus, but my sister and her husband were on a separate bus. While we should have clarified when we booked we wanted to be together, there were NO activities with other bus groups. We could not do the Optionals or even jump on each other's buses to head downtown. They were very strict about not allowing us to be with the other buses. Again, this was very unclear on the site. The Optionals, too, were very expensive. The "canal cruise with pizza and drinks" was around 35 euro, and we purchased our tickets directly with a company (again, because my friend, sister, and brother-in-law could not be on the same canal cruise due to separate buses) at half this price. Finally, I'm a little upset that Contiki only represents strong, positive reviews on the site. After my trip, I found several message boards with other unsatisfied Contiki travelers. Contiki does not fully represent how ALL travelers review their trips; they only choose the "good reviews." It's a bad representation of the true experience. Overall, Contiki is charging a lot for a little. The travel time was a waste of a whole day (when could have flown for cheaper and faster), the "hotel" was far from the city centre and not "superior," the Optionals were over-priced. Contiki should accurately represent ALL consumer reviews, and not skew the reviews to all be positive. I would not recommend a Contiki tour to someone who wants to spend a little more money (or actually even about the same) to get there faster and see more of the cities. Please do a better job of showing all reviews and providing more detailed itineraries, so travelers know ahead of time what they can expect in terms of travel time, hotel locations, and lack of other bus integration.

Amsterdam #regreteverything

This was literally the worst trip, and such a waste of time and money. You're on a bus for the entire time, and would have been much cheaper and efficient to just fly from London to Amsterdam. Once you're in Amsterdam, you stay at a one star hostel which has terrible reviews. Not to mention, it is a half hour away from the actual city. My friends and I could have saved so much time and money had we planned it on our own. I will absolutely never use Contiki again, and would never recommend it to others. I would advise anyone who is considering using a Contiki tour to DO YOUR RESEARCH. Contiki only posts positive reviews on the website, but if you google Contiki reviews, you will be more informed on the cons of using this company. The Contiki motto is #noregrets when it should be #regreteverything
