The tour leader was great. But the hotels had multiple problems and there was always an issue with a room for me, either I was forgotten or in a room that people were already in. It would have been nice to experience more local foods and cultures rather then touristy and terrible included meals. The food we had throughout the tour was terrible and fell way below the expectations and stories I’d heard of Italy. Also I booked a shared room and majority of the time i was solo as the other person didn’t turn up or I don’t know. I thought the tours like I’d done would have had younger people and more culture both of which it didn’t. All were couples or married and not near my age. I made the most of the tour and still enjoyed it but it didn’t meet my expectations or hopes or what the publications boasted.

Jimmy was an amazing tour manager. He was very knowledgeable, organised and professional. He made sure he talked with all members of the group and he did not play favourites with anyone. He made everyone feel like an important part of the group. Restaurants and food was good. Good amount of time in each location. Florence hotel was the only negative in the whole trip.

I felt that the quality of the accommodations was below my expectations, but over all I think it was a good purchase.

Not having to plan my hotel, transportation or tours was great for a type A personality like myself ( and a little scary) but it was really cool. I got to just sit back and go with whatever had been planned. You're in Italy what is there to complain about?

The tour was incredible and we had some great opportunities. I would’ve liked to have more time in the cinque Terre region as I felt that spending time relaxing on the beach was a bonding experience for the group. I felt that the tour should be reworked a bit to have a casual bonding opportunity earlier in the tour. I felt we were very busy in the beginning and we didn’t really get a chance to bond with everyone until the karaoke night in Florence, which was a shame. For the summer months, maybe working in some water sports (jet skis etc) would be a fun add on.

For the money we paid I thought we deserved to have better hotels and the included tours need to be better. I am extremely disappointed in the St.Peters tour we only saw the Vatican museum. I expected a better tour no one explained inside St. Peter’s.

The advertised 3-4 star "hotel" accommodation was not accurate- these were more like 1-2 star accommodations, at best. The 3 nights stayed in Rome at the Polo Hotel were HORRIFIC. My roommate (cousin) and I were bitten BADLY by bed bugs (see attached photo of my arm). Our trip manager, Manny, wasn't very helpful in resolving this issue as he instructed us to skip our full day in Rome to engage in an argument with the hotel manager and to switch rooms (we stayed in 3 different rooms at the hotel and were bit in each). The manager of the Polo Hotel was not only extremely rude, she had no customer service skills and said that "Americans bring bed bugs" and that they've "never had an issue with this in the past." This was a complete LIE as Manny admitted that another Contiki tour had experienced bed bugs in the Polo Hotel and they CHOSE TO BRING GROUPS BACK. This shows a serious lack of judgement on Contiki's part. In addition, we stayed at the Sister's HOSTEL in Sorrento (yes, hostel- despite having paid for hotels). The tour group split into 3 hostels/hotels for the nights in Sorrento. Manny said that they couldn't find accommodation for the 50 trip attendees, however this shows late planning by Contiki given that I booked this trip MONTHS ago. Most of the hotels had poor wifi, often not working in the rooms. The bus does not have unlimited wifi, and to use it on the bus after a certain amount of time, you need to pay extra. The "free time add-ons" were often lame. For example, the pizza and leather demonstrations were 15 minutes long and not very informational or fun. You get to see a lot with this trip, but I've had friends who've traveled with other companies such as Trafalgar and had MUCH better accommodation and experiences. While I'm happy that we got to see so much in Italy, this does not outweigh how highly dissatisfied I am with the accommodation and communication by Contiki. I will not book another trip with Contiki as they've not returned any phone calls or emails from my cousin and I in regards to speaking with Manny's supervisor (or anyone!!) about our horrible experience at the Hotel Polo. In fact, Manny will not give us the name of his supervisor or their contact info, despite asking for it multiple times.
