Contiki was great, however there were times when I felt as though we were being taken to places to be ripped off. It seemed that Contiki take it's travellers to expensive places to have sales pitches thrown at them when the same items can be bought for much cheaper elsewhere. I would assume that Contiki get a kickback for sales they bring in. Some items were in excess of 500% the price of other stores which we weren't taken to. Aside from this and a few other minor things, we had a great time.
