DAY 1 - Arrive London
London
Check in to your hotel after 2:00pm and head out into the humming capital of Britain for a sneak peek at what’s to come. At 4:00pm meet up with your Trip Manager and get to know your fellow travellers.  
DAY 2 - London to Paris
London

Welcome to the first day of the best holiday of your life - we're calling it early! After a few pleasantries in London we'll get the show on the road with Paris in our sights. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Exclusive 'Paris by Night' sightseeing tour
See the Eiffel Tower, Arc de Triomphe, the Louvre, the Champs-Élysées, and Notre Dame Cathedral
See the White Cliffs of Dover
Dover

A few hours in and your jaws are on the floor already. These chalk cliffs that edge the English coastline are known as the White Cliffs of Dover, the first of many natural beauties we'll see on this trip. 

Calais

After we ferry across the English Channel for France we'll arrive in Calais, where we will take in the history of World War I battlefields in the Valley of the Somme. 

Paris

Kicking off night one, we arrive in none other than the lust-worthy Paris! It's straight down to business with a tour of the city lit up by the lights of night. 

Stay
Premiere Classe Paris Ouest Pont de Suresnes Hotel (or similar)
DAY 3 - Paris
Paris

Drool over haute couture you can't afford, admire the Notre Dame Cathedral whilst juggling coffee and crêpes, & get artsy at the many museums of the Louvre. Just don't wear yourself out, you will probably want to get involved with dinner and a cabaret show. Smitten and it's only day two!

FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Parisian Dinner
EUR 36.00
Cabaret show & glass of champagne
EUR 107.00
Stay
Premiere Classe Paris Ouest Pont de Suresnes Hotel (or similar)
DAY 4 - Paris to Bordeaux
Paris

Wipe away your tears sad travellers! Paris is not going anywhere, you can always come back and visit her again. You, on the other hand, are going somewhere, and it's somewhere pretty magnificent...

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Visit the town famous for its wine
Bordeaux

Wise folk tell us that wine has been produced in Bordeaux since the 1st Century - that's a long time, which means they know what they're doing. And it's not just the vin that has dragged us here, it's a pretty place to boot featuring its famous Miroir d'eau (water mirror). 

Stay
Ibis Budget Bordeaux Centre Meriadeck (or similar)
DAY 5 - Bordeaux to San Sebastian via Saint Jean de-Luz
Bordeaux

Breathe in your last breath of Bordeaux before we hit the road in search of the Spanish border. In just a few short hours we'll be beach side and exploring San Sebastian.

Saint-Jean-de-Luz

Keep your swimmers out for our stop at a local fishing village for a dip and some people watching in this cute little town on the French and Spanish border. 

San Sebastian

With two nights in Spain's coastal town of San Sebastian, it will be hard to wipe the smiles off our faces. Flop on the beach or take a walk to the aquarium where you can get a closer look at Isla de Santa Clara. The night is yours. 

Stay
Koisi Hostel (or similar)
DAY 6 - San Sebastian
San Sebastian

We'll be dropping lots of delicious sounding words today as we explore Parte Vieja, Playa de la Concha and Centro Romántico. Say it again: Romántico! Follow the cobblestone roads & soak up San Sebastian's coastline. Here you can learn to surf, lounge on the beach, or bar hop until you're sinking in pintxos. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See the Parte Vieja, Playa de la Concha and Centro Romántico
Stay
Koisi Hostel (or similar)
DAY 7 - San Sebastian to Barcelona via Zaragoza
San Sebastian

Having settled into life with afternoon siestas, today will only be a departure from San Sebastian, leaving Spain is not on the agenda. Sigh with relief.

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
See Gaudi's Sagrada Família & the 1992 Olympic Games complex
FREE TIME ADD-ONS
Flamenco show with Tapas & Drinks
EUR 50.00
Zaragoza

This town comes complete with a baroque Basilica, a perfect combination of Islamic and Gothic architecture and truly a sight to behold.

Barcelona

Hola Barcelona...The first dose of Mediterranean Sea! That's if you can drag yourself away from the intoxicating city & get to the beach. Unique gothic architecture, round the clock parties & plenty of street life will leave you spellbound by Barcelona. 

Stay
Urbany Hostel Meridiana & GO (or similar)
DAY 8 - Barcelona
Barcelona

They say this sexy city sizzles and we couldn't agree more. For a taste of what you can do, here's just a start of the never-ending list. Channel Gaudi at Sagrada Familia, his greatest masterpiece, started in 1882. This labour of love is still not compete, but is one for the Instagram upload for sure. Parc Guell could be next on the list, followed by a swim at the beach, and of course taking to the backstreets for some endless tapas and paella. Washed down with sangria of course. 

NO REGRETS INCLUSIONS
Walking tour of Barcelona's Gothic Quarter
Stay
Urbany Hostel Meridiana & GO (or similar)
DAY 9 - Depart Barcelona
Barcelona

That's it folks. The incredible ride has come to an end and you should all be left utterly inspired by what your time on the road has achieved. Now you have the pleasure of picking your next adventure. Greek Island Hopping, anyone?

I loved this trip but I would have preferred them to mention that the 9 days was more like 8, with a half day at the start and the end day was just a quick breakfast. Also that there is a mandatory meeting on your last day that pulls you from being able to take advantage of your last few hours. I think the surveys could be filled out on the coach before the last destination for those leaving. The trip was amazing and Loz and Chico were the best!!! Perfect way to get a small taste of everything in a short time, so you know what you want to go back to later and experience more. I'm excited for my next trip with Contiki next summer, and the one after that, and the one after that, and...

Everything was extremely well organized and my trip manager (Chilv) always had amazing suggestions of where to go and how to get the most of each stop. Definitely made traveling in busy cities like Paris easy, fun, and not so overwhelming. Some of the included meals were terrible, but aside from that everything was amazing! Great way to get introduced to traveling in Europe. Got a taste of France and Spain and now I know what I would like to go back to visit and what I'm content with. Partying with a great group of other travelers every other night wasn't bad either ;) Nothing like rolling into a club as a group of 40.
