If you've been dreaming of going to Europe but don't know exactly where to start, the European Whirl is your best option. Taking in the usual destinations of Paris, Rome and Amsterdam, it also ventures out east to Prague and Berlin. Both of which are currently on Europe's 'must see' list. The perfect combination of culture, relaxation and of course, good times!

There's nothing more amazing than flying half way around the world and jumping on a coach with 50 like-minded strangers and travelling to some of the most beautiful, historic and unique places on earth. I had the most amazing group of people; however we were all very different personality wise. Despite this, by day 4 we were all pretty much family! All the places we visited were simply amazing, however the only criticisim I have of the trip is that the optionals were often a rip off (e.g. average food for crazy prices). The Contiki staff and stop-over sites were awesome, definitely added to the trip a lot. I partiularly enjoyed the stop-overs where Contiki hosted themed parties and we got the chance to mix and mingle with other Contiki groups. Loved my Contiki experience, will be back doing another trip as son as my bank account allows for it! Thanks Contiki, keep up the good work!

I had the most amazing time! Though, I was not expecting the trip to be as party centered as it was. I'm not complaining about that, but in the US it's not marketed or known for being a party trip, so I wasn't prepared for that. My tour guide, Miriam was absolutely fantastic! She gave us all kinds of history about each city on our way there, then when we got there we got maps that had highlights of the most popular or best places to go see and do stuff at. She also was really helpful when I ended up needing a new camera while on the trip. Overall i think my favorite part of the trip was learning about other cultures. Not only the places we visited but of the people on the trip. My tour was mostly Australians with 8 Americans, 2 South Koreans, 1 Canadian and 5 South Africans. Learning about their cultures and spending time with them are the memories that will last forever. My only regret on the trip was having to come back home.

did this trip, hoping for a better european experience than my, I can't for the life of me remember why I picked a budget tour. If I ever do euro trips again, that would not happen. Much better than my first euro tour. Some nice folks and some folks still stuck in high school mentality. Overall fun most of the days. The experience as a whole was good. Was looking for exceptional...better luck next time I guess. For those who are keen on taking a bit easy while having the best time of their lives, pay a bit more, and you will not regret it.

Three years later I'm still talking with many of my fellow travelers regularly on facebook. This was my first European trip and it was a great introduction to a lot of major European cities as well as some beautiful mountainsides in the Alps. The optional activities were all fun however the optional meals were AWFUL. The Indonesian meal in Amsterdam, Italian meal in Florence, and meal in Paris were all terrible and they weren't cheap so I would suggest avoiding them. The quality of the food made it clear that these restaurants did not care about our satisfaction. It was nice to at least to spend more quality time with my tour mates but if I did it again I would have gotten a group of friends together and dined somewhere else. My only other complaint was the hotel in Amsterdam was pretty dumpy and in a dodgy area. Ironically, all of the other accommodations, which were campsites and hostels, were absolutely superb. Overall it was an excellent trip.

In 18 days we visited 10 countries. I have never been so exhausted and so broke, but it was worth every minute and penny spent. Both our tour manager and our driver were one of kind guys and were a bonus to the experience and the friends I made are friends for life. Not to mention, the sites, the food and the stories I've written have changed my perspective on life. I will never forget this trip and I highly recommend anyone wanting to experience the world and to have a little fun sign up for summer 2013! You won't regret it. The optionals Contiki offers are wonderful and I suggest, to get the full (and best) experience, you sign up for all of them. Even tackle the ones you're scared of, like I did. Now, I cant wait to go paragliding again! In each country, try the quisine they're known for - you may not like it, but "tick the box" ;) Utilize your crew and dont be afraid to ask them so research something you're interested in seeing/doing that isnt on the itinerary; theyll do anything to make your trip the best you've ever had. The accomodation on the trip isnt always the nicest, but it's comfortable and who really cares? Trust me, you'll onlly be in the room to sleep. Be prepared for long rides on the bus, but that's to be expected and the drives are always worth what you step into on the other end. Take this trip!!! You will absolutely love and you'll come home with memories you wouldn't trade for the world.

The Good: All of your hostels and travel in between cities is arranged. At least a third of your meals are covered. You get to see some of the best cities in Europe and you have the flexibility to explore them your own way. The Bad: The quality of the places we stayed at were very low, lower than I originally thought even for a 'budget' tour. Three people got bed bugs in one place and two others had their cameras stolen from their locked rooms at another. Also, the add on tours and those already included ranged from average quality to poor. Bottom Line: If you want a cheap tour that has your transportation, hostels, and some meals and tours included, this might be for you, just realize this is a cheap tour for a reason.

I booked this trip on a complete whim and was so nervous about going out alone but there was no need. From the first moment I met my tour mates, I had the time of my life and didn't experience a single moment of regret or doubt. 18 days is probably the perfect length for the tour and it'll fly by like you won't believe - I was nowhere near ready to leave all the amazing friends I'd made and tears were flowing on the last day. High energy is definitely a good way to describe the tour and I'm totally not a party animal back home so I was scared that I wouldn't fit in here. If you're the same, don't worry. You're with such fantastic people that you want to spend each and every night partying with them. Be prepared for early morning while hungover to be tough for the first few days but by halfway through, we all just caught up on sleep on the coach. #noregrets I was concerned that long days on the coach would be boring and take away from seeing the cities but for me, the journeys flew by. Everyone would doze off until the first service station stop, then chat or watch a movie for the rest of the time. Take a neck pillow!! Also, you'll get sick - almost everyone on my tour did. Take cough medicine and cold and flu stuff but a few shots did the trick as a quick fix for a night out too ;) Everywhere we stayed was decent enough - some obviously nicer than others - but you spend so little time in the hostels that it doesn't matter. Breakfasts were a bit lackluster but did the job, and included dinners were nice except for the hostel in Berlin. There's a great pizza place nearby though! Staying at the campsites and Contiki run places was fun too and the party nights they held were some of my favourite nights of the trip - especially in Austria. My favourite optional extras were the Amsterdam river cruise and dinner, Berlin walking tour, white water rafting and the gondola ride in Venice. The walking tours in Italy weren't great in my opinion but it's probably the easiest way to see the Vatican City and Colosseum. Tony and Darius, our tour manager and driver, were absolutely incredible and I can't count the number of times I nearly cried laughing on the trip. Both went out of their way to make sure everybody was happy and the talks Tony gave about each country were really interesting. We made several stops along the way that weren't in our itinerary - an amazing scenic spot in Switzerland for photos and Dachau concentration camp were my favourites - and their commitment to doing this for us made the trip just that little bit more special. It was honestly the best three weeks of my life and I'd encourage anybody to do it - I'd do it all over again in a heartbeat if I could! "Go big or go home"

When I signed up for my trip, I soon realized this was going to be quite the eye opener. Luckily, my tour had a facebook group. I did what anybody would do, and that was to check out what the people were like that I would be spending about 20 days with. I was shocked when I was only 1 of 3 Americans going on the trip. Then I thought, how awesome is that? I am around Americans 24/7, so it will be great to meet these awesome people from other countries. I can honestly say that I have friends for life now from all over the globe because of this trip. Our tour guide Adam and bus driver Pete did a great job getting everyone comfortable with eachother and making us all laugh. The places we went on this tour were so unreal. I have never been so in aww of a place before. Everything we saw was so old compared to what I'm used to back in the States. We saw things that were almost 1000 years old. All of the excursions were well worth the money. Do NOT miss out on the river cruises or anything that involves food. First off, it's a great way to experience the city and an even better way to get to know everybody. Just wait till you get to Amsterdam, was not expecting my first night there to be so Amsterdam(ish) What you hear and see in movies doesn't do it justice. It's one wild city. There were so many historical sites to see and I would definitely suggest doing the Anne Frank museum, talk about humbling. I suggest you do what me and some others did in Switzerland. We went hiking the mountains while the other went up to the top of the mountain to ski. That is only because I am used to snow, many people on tour have never seen snow, so of course they are going to want to try skiing out. But you get to see the most amazing sites when you climb the mountains trails and go off the beaten path. I would do this trip again in a heartbeat. So amazing.
