Small budget, small window of time, big list of Must Dos? The European Encounter should do the trick. Make your way through 10 countries, catching some rays on the Italian Riviera, downing pizza in Rome & exploring castles in Prague. If you know a better way to spend just under two and a half weeks, we need to hear about it!

Acredito que poderia haver uma preparação melhor do viajante para essa viagem (visto, locais visitados, moeda do país etc). Acredito que as empresas que representam a Contiki nos países poderiam ser melhor treinadas.

I enjoyed most of the activities planned, but there were a handful that the entire group did not enjoy. It’s hard when you are on such a time constraint to feel stuck at something you don’t like. If I were to do it again, I wouldn’t do the no regrets package of free time add-ons. Instead, I would try to look through them and try talking to some past Contiki travelers or look up reviews and photos online. I thouroghly enjoyed all of the planned, cultural dinners. Those seemed pricey, but once you get there - you will totally see that the price you pay is actually a bargain for everything included. The hotels were pretty good. Sometimes I would go out alone and I would be a little worried getting back to the hotel If it was in a sketchy area or far from the main part of town. Trying to catch uber within WiFi is impossible and that happened to me late at night a couple of times. I’m not sure how Contiki could fix this issue without the prices skyrocketing - so it’s a catch 22. I felt overall that it was worth my money. I am happy that I paid extra to have my own room!

Price was getting up there and definitely could have included some better free time add ons. Very happy with the accommodation- I was preparing for real basic but very happy with that. I understand the difficulties of accommodating 55 people so I thought what we had where we had was great. If it was out of the city right next to the transport system is definitely essential and it pretty much always ways so did appreciate that. People complaining about included breakfast foods can shush- it's european breakfast it is what it is. I always found something to eat and was satisfied. Appreciated the fact that it was coach to hotel and no lugging backpacks/suitcases around the town to our accommodation. I did pay premium price for this tour compared to everyone else but I couldn't book it earlier or later and was happy with the product I received. Of course I could nitpick things and find faults but looking at it with a positive light- I had a great time.

The tour guide was amazing. The guide can make or break a tour, and Tai was amazing. Very informative and helpful. More free time would have been great, and some of the walking tours were disappointing. But otherwise most optional extras were a good addition to the trip.

The European Encounter was face-paced and exhausting at times, but completely worth the experience for all I was able to do and see in 16 days. We got to see nearly every one of the best attractions in Western Europe. I would recommend this trip to anyone looking to experience all of these major attractions in Europe without having to stress about planning out accommodations or transportation. The local tour guides were also knowledgeable and helpful.

There were a couple of the included meals that weren’t great, and also while in Paris it hadn’t been sorted so our tour manager could get the tickets needed for us to get up the eiffel tower. However the tour manager was able to sort it so that if we had gone to it the next day, we could get the money back for our tickets. So thank you to our tour manager for that.
