So apparently my group was the “guinea pigs” of this updated tour as we were the first ones to do it. The places itself was amazing but the problems relief with the tour. There was absolutely no communication between contiki and myself. Half of the group didn’t even receive emails regarding how the group was meeting on the night before the tour commenced etc. There was not many activities that were set in stone that were advertised and promised. For example the Bahamas was surprisingly included in the Miami section of the trip & we were promised that we could go jet skiing and snorkelling, there was nothing on the island only 1 restaurant it was a huge disappointment. In LA, we expected to go to the Hollywood sign with the tour.. YOU DO NOT!! We were so disappointed with that. Our tour guide wasn’t very helpful either, he just brought a friend to places for free and relaxed with him. Every day apparently was a free day - they hand you a clip board with activities and if you want to do it you write your name down. Note: once you write your name it means you’ve paid for it on the spot! So think before you write! The whole group was disappointed with this trip as we had higher expectations.
