Best way to Travel Europe and Make the Best of Friends.

If you want to travel around Europe and have it all organized for you then this is the tour for you!! If your asking your self " Do i really want to travel alone?" or "Maybe i am to old to do a Contiki tour?" Then stop right there! We had 35 ish people in our tour which was considered a small group ages between 18 and our eldest was 33. ( Room to spread out on the bus ummm Yes please!!) We had 5 couples and the rest traveling alone or with a friend. This tour shows you the best of every country and you make so many friends along the way. My favorite place we visited was SPAIN!!! The hostel we stayed at was awesome and so clean and funky!! The food and country is amazing!! Make sure you get to the Food Markets and the Sagrada Família. Switzerland was beautiful but cold so take warm clothes!! I didn't and had to buy a few things haha. Try and do all of the ME time options there honestly worth the money!!! Beware of the bed bugs in Rome that was the only down side of the accommodation and my poor partner got eaten alive!! Take vitamins and cough syrup but keep in mind THE CONTIKI COUGH IS REAL no matter how healthy you are you will get sick!! I sounded like a dieing seal the whole time but it didn't effect my time overseas! I could talk forever about this tour If you have any questions message me and ill reply to any of your questions or concerns.

Absolutely amazing, minus the bed bugs.

This trip was simply incredible! I traveled solo and had the best time. I t was very full on though, they really do mean high energy, honestly not a lot of time to chill out and do your own thing, but in saying that we saw so much in such a short period of time!! So worth it! Our tour guide Marine and driver Chico were bloody brilliant too, they were both such good fun and always ready to have a laugh. But something you should be prepared for is bed bugs, you will get them, its like the contiki cough. Just be prepared, take a cream over with you and try not to let your luggage touch the beds and put your sleeping bag in a plastic bag after using it. Be prepared when you get home to wash absolutely everything with hot water and then tumble dry, meaning your clothes will shrink sadly :( But this trip was incredible! Paragliding and white water rafting are a must do!! Everything was so beautiful but Rome was definitely my favourite.

An amazing adventure

This was a fabulous trip and I had an amazing time over the 25 days. I would definitely recommend this tour to anyone who would like to get a good feel of what Europe is like, it was just the right amount of time, anything shorter and I don't think it would of been as enjoyable. Do as many of the extras as you can, they really make the trip.

Time of my life!

I booked this tour without planning or really thinking about it only 2 months before it left. It was homestly the best thing ive ever done! Ive made friends I'll have for life, saw incredible sights and have some awesome memories! I had an awesome tour manager Megghie (you'll be blessed if you get her) and a fabulous driver Rui! If you are thinking about doing this tour, DO IT!! Also make sure you have enough money for optional extras, they are worth it! Paragliding over the swiss alps was insane! Something I will never ever forget.

Tour Review

It was fun. I learned about all the countries I went to. France was a really cool place. Italy was great. Spain was alright. After the whole trip, I got the travel bug now. The only part I did not like was Germany. I felt like Germany was really rushed. I wish the trip let me spend some more time in Germany. All the other countries I felt the time spent their was good.

Great trip

This trip was a fantastic introduction to Europe. Got to see almost all the major tourist cities and attractions in Europe. Great tour to see a lot in a 'short' amount of time, and have some amazing experiences, including all the additional activities, which I highly recommend. Some of the accommodation was great, and some was average, but it doesn't really matter, because you pretty much just need a bed to sleep in. This trip let me know where I want to go back to and for how long. Loved my experience on this tour with Contiki.

The best trip I have ever taken!

It was the best month of my life! First time ever travelling solo, so I was a little nervous however once meeting up with contiki I never looked back. Met the most amazing people, visited the most amazing places and have memories that will never fade. DO IT! :)

Take me back!

Best 25 days of my life! From day 1 we were a family. Our Tour Manager T-Bone did an amazing job at getting us to feel comfortable if we were traveling alone (most of us were). She MADE the trip! And our epic bus driver Fillip knew how to throw a BUS PARTY! All the accommodation was great some of the places we stayed were beautiful! I recommend doing ALL the optionals they are fantastic and you will have a blast. Couldnt have asked for a better bunch of people the share in the best time of my life. To many amazing moments i could go on forever. Just book it and GO! #NOREGRETS

25 days of bless!!

I recently went on this tour in July. What can i say, im still missing contiki. Concept tour was a great way to travel with fun, like minded people. I have to say, i wasnt all for contiki and guided tours before hand as i am a cruisey girl who likes to just plan and spread out my days to enjoy everything at a slower pace. However, contiki did not disapoint! Yea, you have early mornings - but for the best reasons! Concept tour is all about partying with comfort i would say.. because your not unconfortable in tents camping and your not stuck with boring people in the hotels :) Our group got along so well, each had to their own but everyone was so friendly and ready to party that it made our tour so great! Free time for sightseeing was brilliant as we had choice in what we wanted to see.. Partying at night (whether it be in contiki villages, hostels or optional extras) was soo fun!!! (especially the arranged contiki party ie, whiteboard party Supplied meals were of great quality Tour guide was full of knowlegde and always there to help ... and party Bus driver was great.. alot of bus days where we travel all day but it doesnt seem like a must because there are 50 + other ppl on the bus to mingle with.. catch up on sleep was also a good way to spend time on the bus.. Optional extras were pretty good... Each accomodation was quite good, somewhat hot in the middle of summer but alot of places had air con or fans.. All in all i would recommend any contiki tour to anyone. I think it was such an amazing/diverse experience for ppl my age to do.

Amazing experience with wonderful people

I found the Contiki experience an amazing one - a really good taste of Europe (my favourite places were Paris, Barcelona and Venice). You get so close to your tour group and tour manager, and that really makes a huge difference. The nightlife and parties were incredible too, especially as Contiki had a lot of connections in bars, clubs and activities. At 18, my friend and I were the youngest on tour with the average age being about 22/23 (oldest was around 26). Just a few things. Contiki will try to milk you for your money, especially with optionals, so if you're travelling with a tight budget you might struggle - I spent a lot more than I intended (about 2000 AUD, and I didn't do all the optionals). Some of the optionals were really disappointing too and seemed to be a bit of a rip off. Optionals to avoid: - Flamenco show, Barcelona - boring and amateurish, especially for 30 euros! Would much rather have wandered Barcelona. - Tuscan meal, Florence - really average food in a not-particularly-special restaurant. Would have been much better off finding food elsewhere. - Electronic Space Disco - it was fun because everyone on tour went, but the actual club was disappointing. - Vatican Tour AND Imperial Tour - these were both overpriced and the guides were horribly boring and uneducated. - Bobbahn, Austrian Tyrol - I didn't actually do this, but I heard negative reviews from everyone who did, saying it was uncomfortable and at times painful, and not worth the money. - JungFrau mountain, Swiss Alps - I didn't do this either, but from what I heard, the journey up the mountain was the main feature of the day (2 hours long) and the experience was quite overpriced and not particularly special. Optionals that were amazing: - Cabaret, Paris - very expensive but worth it for the real Parisian experience with your new group, one of my favourite nights in the tour. - Parisian dinner - absolutely boiling when we went (no air con in the restaurant) but the food was delicious!! - Venice walking tour - this guide was lovely and very knowledgable. - Viennese dinner - a very eccentric experience but completely hilarious. - Munich bike tour - the guides are hilarious and the tour was really fun. - Whitewater Rafting in Austrian Tyrol - not very hardcore for professional rafters out there, but fun and a good experience. - Tandem paragliding - expensive but INCREDIBLE, worth it. - Wine tasting, St Goar - another really bizarre experience, hilarious. Highlights of the whole tour were some of the nights out we had as groups, like in Paris, Barcelona, Florence and Amsterdam. Also the free days we had in each city to explore and go our own way - our tour guide organised maps and metro maps for us each time, which made it way easier. We also got to see really special parts of each city which you wouldn't necessarily find otherwise. I thought the accommodation was fine for most of the trip - the hostels were comfortable enough and clean, which was fine, and the contiki properties served surprisingly good food. The issue I had was that in Italy we stayed exclusively in Contiki campsites in cabins, none of which had air conditioning (in 35+ degree weather) and all of which were quite far from the cities. Venice was ridiculous - to the point where we physically couldn't travel into the city at night because the transport cut off. Another slight downer is that Contiki will try to sell you things at every available point, usually disguising it as a 'demonstration' or an 'opportunity', when really they're just informercials preaching to you about their products. Bit of a pain, try to avoid when possible. You'll be on the coach for about 40% of the trip. The coach was pretty comfortable and we'd all sleep or socialise, but some days involved long drives so bring comfortable pillows and things to do! Also, take as many vitamins and immune boosters as possible. You will get sick. The Contiki Cough is famous. Overall an amazing experience, really happy I did it and happy to recommend the trip to others.

Tour Review

This trip was amazing...I think it was the right amount of time in each city to see the thing you wanted to. I felt there was enough free time in the cities and when you got to over night stops etc to relax and meet people from other tours etc! The French Chateau was amazing! definitely a highlight of the trip! It is in a beautiful setting and run very well! I loved the special stopovers with the contiki staff that was nice and they were like minded people so could relate to us. The accommodation was ok, there were a few places that were very average and unfortunately our tour manager coped it a bit as we were unhappy Our driver and Tour manager were AMAZING! Got us from A to B in one piece and we only lost 3 people haha those were testing times for the group!! This trip was truly amazing and something I will never forget! I met some amazing people and saw some amazing places! I am already planning my next adventure!!

Unreal.

For anyone interested in going on this tour, I definitely recommend it. The duration is great for someone who is traveling for the first time. The additional activities are all worthwhile except for the Flamenco show in Barcelona, it's a waste of money. The campsites at the budget tours were all very clean and had great reps working, making sure we had the best stay possible. More than anything, your trip will be memorable from the friends you make. I met lifelong friends on this tour; it's enough time to really get to know people and bond. As cheesy as it sound, it'll be the trip of your life.
