The website promised traveling chefs- none Cooking classes- none, we got demonstrations. That's it. Trip to Monaco- didn't happen Espresso "class"- saw someone make an espresso and drank it Wine and olive oil tasting- got 1 olive oil to try. No explanation, education. Same with the 3 wines. None of this was bad, we (yes, I include a number of my co-travelers with whom I talked about this) were very disappointed that such high expectations were created and very few were met... The whole thing was mostly a nice guy who had gone to a few restaurants/food shops in little towns and was now telling us where to go... not sure it is something that we could have done with Yelp.

I was really disappointed that Contiki used paying travelers as a way to pay for fellow media representatives to get their marketing up. As a small group it was really disappointing that most of the 'media' people which contiki had payed for most of them didnt have much interest in food but instead had the liking of their following base. It was really disappointing as I would of thought being a smaller group I would meet people with simular interests but that didn't seem to be the case. As well as being labeled a 'munch' Tour- it was nothing to rave about. I did most of the research myself with what food places to find. The two foodie influencers (Hayden & Dan) did nothing to help us or teach us anything to do with food. Would not reccommend this trip to anyone. Really dissapointed with a contiki as this was my first time using them. Half of the travelers were sponsered l and then to find that I have basically been ripped off with the amount I paid compared to other paying travelers by nearly $600 is obsured. I have 2 other contiki's booked for the next 2 months. I will be in contact after that as well, because what contiki did, really was not fair at all.

I felt that this trip was mainly a marketing excercise bc it was the first munch trip; and where I believe contiki invited the wrong 'influencers' who negatively impacted the trip experience for myself and the other genuine paying travellers. Some of these American influencers were very negative, critising almost every aspect of the trip and loudly saying how they believed the inclusions food and activities were **** and ****, even though we may have thought it was good. They made us feel like our taste and our opinion on the trip was not correct or valid. The influencers sharing that they were invited for free on the trip, and that we, the paying customers probably paid for their spot was not welcome information. I understand and saw that their instagram posts and blogs were gorgeous and heaped mountains of flowery words on promoting the trip, but in real life, on the tour with them, these girls pushed around their food and was only interested in self promotions and taking pictures of themselves. My suggestion on how contiki can improve this marketing excercise in the future, would be to have the influencers not tell everyone that their on the trip for free, ask influencers not to take photos of paying customers without their permission and posting to Snapchat. Bc they did and I did not appreciate a picture of me sleeping on the bus going around their 1000s of follwers. Luckily I'm not a suing for stupid things sort of girl. On the whole I enjoyed the trip, 7/10 for service and exclusions. I would have enjoyed the trip a lot more if there was afew more classes/included/optional such as a pasta class or a pastry class. And also if I didn't have influencers tainting my experiences, and getting in the way of my food because they need to take a million photos and let the dish get cold before we can pass it around to serve ourselves!!
