Out with the altitude, in with the inner-city Parisian bliss. Once we've crossed the border out of Switzerland we will be coasting through the pretty wine producing region of Burgundy before our arrival in Paris.

Exclusive 'Paris by Night' sightseeing tour
Sample Champagne & Escargot
Paris

Lamp-lit bridges, a sparkling Eiffel Tower, & evening coffee haunts, tonight we fall in love with everything Paris. Our Trip Manager fills us in on the city's secrets, then to celebrate our first night in the city, we'll pop the champagne & experiment with escargot.

Stay

DAY 23 - Paris
Paris

Fragonard Perfumery now there's a place to check in on Facebook! And stock up on perfume, obviously. Especially given the greatly discounted prices and authenticity of buying in France. Later you can moan over haute couture you can't afford, admire the Notre Dame Cathedral whilst juggling coffee and crêpes, & get artsy at the many museums of the Louvre. Just don't wear yourself out, you will probably want to get involved with dinner and a cabaret show. With your last night looming, make it one to remember in the city of lights.

Well worth the money I paid for 23 days around Europe! I also purchased most of the FTA and they were incredible and really made my trip so much better than I could have ever imagined. Some hostels were not as nice as others, which is fine. Wombats hostel in Budapest was well below par - the location was amazing however some of the rooms had a terrible smell to them, there was mould on the air vents, and the shower was broken in my room. When my roommates and I asked to move we were simply told no by Wombats management.

I loved the European Trail, it took me to all the places I have always wanted to see during the European winter and made it so easy. All you have to remember is what time to get back on the coach!

The 23 day European Trail trip was worth every last dollar and then some. Regardless of what you pay, Contiki provide experiences that stay with you for a lifetime. Because Contiki have such a good rep around Europe, we also get exclusive deals and even some sneaky freebies on meals, drinks and experiences, what more could you want?! It's been 2 months since I went on my European Trail trip, and not a day has gone past that I haven't recalled a fond memory, told a funny story or looked at the hundreds (and hundreds) of photos I took. You can't put a price on friendship, and the ones I have made through Contiki make the decision to travel with this company so worth it!

This tour is well worth the money, only let down (lactose intolerant) was the food fund. We paid lots of money for basic food, I felt this could have been provided at a bit better quality.

What appears good value soon changes once all of the “optional” activities are added to the cost of the tour.

Amazing trip only made better by the fantastic tour manager Aaron & coach driver Garth. Everything was well organised and Aaron's local knowledge of the destinations was a bonus. Accomodation was better than expected, clean and most places were easy to find after a night out in town. Remember to budget for the addon activites as they are all worth it.

It was a great time, but I would suggest including the Free TIme Add-ons in the original price for budgeting reasons. Also, a more detailed outline of each FTA should be provided and the customer should be able to decide on the day if they would like to purchase it, rather than in advance.

Had to pay extra to share a room with my partner, would have been way cheaper to go alone to be honest. Food was bland.
