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.

As for the tour itself, me and my husband (we went for our honeymoon), had a great time. The people on our tour were wonderful and it's hard not to have fun in Italy. However, we have done Contiki before and had a vastly different experience this time around. For example, they failed to mention that this tour had approximately $550 in add-ons that were NOT included in the tour price, thus were paid for while on tour. If you skipped them, you would miss necessary boat rides, bus rides and transportation, as well as things you would have thought would be included like the Colosseum. What kind of tour doesn't include the Colosseum in the price? The brochure even states "See the Roman Colosseum..." This was false advertising at its finest. For the money, I can see why this was beneficial, which is why we went. However, for the additional money we spent on the add-ons, we left angry with how much they failed to tell us.

It was truly amazing mainly because of our tour manager Hazel but I was also lucky to be amongst a group full of amazing people! The places we visited were truly amazing my favourites were Florence and Capri (I plan on marrying rich in order to live the high life in Capri lol)! We had early starts which were worth it as we got to see and do more. I do feel places like Venice and Cinque Terre could have had less free time. Hotels were not that bad, I mean it did what it was supposed to do which was literally to sleep, have a shower and leave. Overall I did not know what to expect I was so nervous but I AM SO GLAD I DID IT!!! I met a life long friend who does not live far from me (we are currently planning our next trip lol). I loved CONTIKI and my #SimplyItaly trip. I now have very high expectations for my second CONTIKI trip in September to do the #GreekIslandHopping. I highly recommend #SimplyItaly if you really want to get a glimpse of the main parts of Italy. If you enjoy nights out or unorganised day plans this trip is not for you. Thank You So Much Hazel you were amazing!! #HazelForTheWin!!! Salvatore your driving was A****! To My Fellow Travellers (who were on my trip), every time I hear George Ezra #Shotgun I will forever think of you!! #Andiamo

Good bang for buck!!! Some free time additional activities should be included because there is no other alternative (such as the tour of Pompeii), even if it does increase the base price.

I was pretty disappointed with this experience. There were too many travelers for anyone to have a positive experience. The emphasis on partying meant that people did not enjoy the touring during the day because of their actions at night. The accommodations were outside of the city which made going off on your own very difficult, time consuming, and costly. Also the add-ons were expensive and not marketed correctly. The food that was provided was very disappointing considering how much it cost and that we were in ITALY, one of the best food places in the world. The experience was not personalized or worth the money spent. While our guide tried, he was only one person which meant that all the needs of travelers could not be met. We were brought to many tourist traps and places that were way more expensive than anywhere else. Italy's scenery was beautiful and besides being a method of transportation around the country (not a reliable one as our coach broke down and we had to switch to a smaller, less equipped one) this trip was not what was expected.

Amazing, made friends for life. Activities were great such as the main sites like the colosseum and Vatican City. Some dinners could be better... maybe bigger portions. Like big family feasts.

Some activities were well planned and value for money, while the quality and value of other experiences (especially Free time add-on's) varied greatly.

To save for the Trip was quite expensive, and felt that some of the add on activities which were not included in the trip could have been a bit better as some of them were not what I expected in terms of quantity/quality. But in general I was happy to visit all the places I was promised.
