Going into this trip I certainly had a lot of worry simply because this was my very first time travelling without my parents and the longest I’ve ever been away from home . Having everything booked in advance along with transportation really put my mind at ease . My group had to have been some of the most incredible people I've ever met who have now become lifelong friends . Hotels were always clean and in pretty good locations . Our trip manager Dan and driver Dave were so easy to talk to, friendly, caring, accommodating and overall made the experience that much better. With the help of my amazing group, I was able to push myself outside of my comfort zone and do every single add on contiki offered and I could not be happier with that choice . Many tears were shed on our last day together but now we have so many memories. I could not say enough about how incredible my time was. Lastly , if you live a very active lifestyle this trip is definitely for you . It is very fast paced and doesn’t give that much relaxation/ free time . It would have been great to spend 3 days in each city and have 2 days for exploring with the group and 1 free day to catch up on rest since the time spent on buses are a lot .
