Krakow & Ljubljana sound familiar? Probably not. That's because the Eastern Trail is about blazing a new trail. But just to keep things interesting we sandwich the obscure between hotspots like Venice & Vienna. It doesn't get much better than 9 brimming days to explore 6 European countries.

While some of this boils down to circumstance, this was a very disappointing trip all 'round. Firstly, you're joining on the 7th or 8th day of another trip, so everyone else is already good friends. Secondly, you join on the day after they've farewelled other travellers who have just departed the group and everyone is recommended to have a "quiet night in" because Auschwitz is the next destination. The group I was with was too tired to do anything that night, though a few did come out but most of us left early. While getting to know people is mostly on my shoulders, it's very discouraging when any conversation you try and strike up gets cut short with other people butting in with their inside jokes. I barely remember anyone's name on the trip and legitimately have no idea who was from where or what they do for work. We never got the chance to get to know anyone because the coach's microphone was constantly broken and then no one wanted to rotate around the coach and "get to know" anyone because "we already did that". Speaking of things not going to plan, a lot of things didn't go to plan on this trip. We had to sit in the coach for half an hour after a long day in Auschwitz and wait for the coach driver to get a toll box. Kinda ***** when you've been up since 6am and by this point it was 8:30pm and we still hadn't checked into our next hotel. I got charged for something I didn't pay for (wasn't even aware of that), but thankfully I got refunded. Contiki maps for certain destinations weren't printed, there were issues with train tickets in Rome, we weren't advised in advance that you have to pay to swim at Lake Bled. I don't think anyone had lunch that day because we weren't stopping off anywhere for very long and we weren't recommended when we should grab lunch. Venice was a lovely day, until it was time to meet at the meeting point and the trip leader was drunk and decided to change plans. That's at least what I thought was happening, but through Chinese Whispers I learned that we in fact had some ferry issues and had to catch a later ferry (1 hour later) with another Contiki group. The day sheet said to have "a quiet one" but then about half the group was drunk and shouting (trip leader included), so of course the ferry ride back to the coach was grating. The classic funny guy gets up on the ferry mic and plays a repetitive pump up song that we've heard 30 times already during our coach rides and then when we get back onto the coach (Keep in mind, long day. Would've left the previous hotel 13 hours before) the coach driver (or trip leader) decides to blare the said repetitive song at max volume for our drive back to the hotel. That's all well and good if you were one of the people who wanted that or were drinking, but over half of us weren't and just wanted to relax. Absolutely no consideration. The coach rides. Far out, what torture they were. The music was blaring at full volume almost every trip. That might be fine for ol' "Party Marty" (coach driver) and the 4 or 5 other people who would shout out song requests, but again, no consideration for the rest of us. I didn't sleep once on any of the coach rides and not even my noise cancellation headphones could block out how loud the music was. I'd also like to mention that I'm no stranger to Contiki or *Competitor comment removed by Feefo* as I've done 5 trips before. This easily ranks down the bottom and I genuinely can't remember anything I enjoyed about this trip. The one enjoyable day (Venice) quickly became one of the least enjoyable. I get that some of this was out of Contiki's control, and of course the people on each trip vary. For me though, I did not enjoy this trip one bit and I strongly discourage anyone from doing any trips where you link up with another group as it just isn't the same as starting off fresh when no one knows eachother. PS. All the food add ons were not worth it. Don't waste your time. You're much better off finding a nice restaurant elsewhere and buying food there. This should be expected though as it's not a very pricey trip

Literally the best time of my life! I opted in for all the optional extras and although some of the museums were a bit of a snooze, my new best friends made it absolutely worth it. I'd rather have done the snooze of a museum than actually sleeping in the bus, waiting for the cool kids to come out. Emmy & Gabi (tour manager and driver) were the actual best! I had the time of my life and I wish it never ended. If you are looking for the Eurotrip of your dreams, do this one, but do the WHOLE thing!

1. It is not truly 7 countries or even 6- it is 5. I do not count a rest stop as a country. It should not be counted as a country on the itinerary to be included with price. Also, the Vatican while is counted as a small country - should not be counted as well. The true countries we see are Austria, Poland, Hungary, Slovenia, and Italy. Also for price wise - the only countries included for price should be the ones we stay in HOSTELS for. 2. Currency information should be sent out ahead of time with the other documentation sheets. I should know all the currencies ahead of time to do exchanges. Also, a helpful currency tip sheet or money sheet should be given. For example, I would have left money in a checking account and just did ATM's - less of a fee and I get money instantly in that currency. 3. Leisure time should also come with helpful and handy places, activities, and events to do should we not choose to do the MTO. For example, after our Past and Present tour in Budapest, people went to the Salt Bathes. However, no one instructed us ahead of time to bring a bathing suit. This is something that would have been great to know so we could have partaken. 4. Room assignments need to be made ahead of time. If you are booking with another person, you should always be guaranteed to stay with them in a room. It is unfair to be separated from a friend, relative, or significant other.

Thank you #ContikiNate for making my tour as memorable as possible! Shout out to the best Polish bus driver, Jakub Rebelski. Although my time spent on tour was short, it was definitely an experience that will last me a lifetime! Also, the me time options was definitely worth it!! I loved the Gondola ride as well as the tour through the Salt Mines. I met people from all over the world and hope we will meet again in the future. As Nate always said, #howgreatareourlives

Trip manager, brilliant, itinerary, brilliant! Accommodation, average. Joining a tour over a week in, terrible! This tour is great if you don't want to meet people and expect to make friends. Not great for solo travelers. The group I was with was not a bad group, they had just all bonded before I joined the tour so wasn't part of any of the little groups that formed. I would not have gone on this tour if I knew it was part of the bigger tour. Thankfully the trip manager Marcos was amazing and made the trip enjoyable.
