Mykonos

Remember when you first looked at our itinerary and wondered if 4-nights in Mykonos would be too much? LOL! What a joke those feels are now. We all wish our stay in Mykonos would last for 3 months. Do any sightseeing you've forgotten to do (because, beach hangs) or give yourself a day to relax if you've been giving it a nudge since we first arrived. Tomorrow we have another Greek port of paradise to fall in love with. 

Stay
Paradise Beach Resort (or similar)
DAY 20 - Mykonos
Mykonos

Sleeping all day because you danced all night is not an option. Well, technically it is. But wasting a day of glorious sunshine on the island of Mykonos won't be the best decision you've ever made.

And not yet overrun by tourists, you can explore  with a bit of space at your side.

Stay
Doro City Hotel (or similar)
DAY 23 - Tirana to Dubrovnik via Budva

Dubrovnik

The city of Dubrovnik is so much more than just a UNESCO World Heritage Site and a Game of Thrones location - not that either of those claims to fame are even mildly mediocre. After you've been guided around the city with intricate detail 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. If that's not enough, a boat cruise and some island hoping can be dished up for your afternoon pleasure.

We can't tease you the whole way to Zadar - a stunning stop off in Split is 100% necessary. Wander through the domain of Diocletian’s Palace in the city centre, gob-smacked by the sheer talent of those way back when Romans.  220 buildings and a huge cathedral will be enough to make your head spin. 

Zadar

Medieval churches and marble streets mark our evening in Zadar. Take a dip by the steps of the manmade masterpiece of Sea Organ, or head out to enjoy the buzzing nightlife of this student town bursting with bars and cafés.

Contiki has been the best decision i have made. The beautiful places we went to (18x countires!), amazing history provided by our Tour Manager, the driving skills of our Coach Driver, the amazing humans & souls i met on this tour that have become lifelong friends that i got to experience everything with. There were good days and bad days as it was a full 33 day tour but more good days that far out wieghed the bad. Contiki was the best thing that could have happened to me and i absolutely have #noregrets

So many destinations included, slightly rushed at times but this would be unavoidable due to how much we got to see.

There was room for improvement in the way that destinations were described to ensure that what we got matched what was advertised e.g. “travel to the Swiss alps and see snow”. However all in all very good value for money

althought my contiki crew was great. I was less than impressed with the contiki representative on the crews. It appeared that he offloaded at the responsible onto my tour manager and my only real exposure to him was at a rodes. where the walking orientation was as simple as "if you want to go to the beach follow me, old town is that way'.
