To whom is may concern, I have been considering not sending this, however as I am meeting with a lawyer this week to discuss legal standing on the issue I thought it best to make contiki aware. I am seeking compensation for my trip as I feel the description was extremely misleading and deceptive, something that falls under the ACCC domain. I partook in the Canadian Encounter route and feel the itinerary I received did not reflect the trip. Let's start at the beginning, Pittsburgh 'the home of Andy Warhol'. Making such a statement I was lead to believe we'd learn some history regarding the man and at the very least be encouraged to visit his museum, which was not open on a Monday. Why, I ask do you advertise Andy Warhol when there is absolutely no engagement with him? Further the guide gave us very little information about the city and we were taken to play with balls in a park whilst many people nursed their hangovers from the night prior. I will add here I am disgusted in the standard of duty of care as underage drinking was encouraged and drinking to excess also encouraged. You're essentially teaching people that other countries laws don't matter. Day two 'spend the morning in Pittsburgh' again disappointing as we had to be on the bus by 8am, allowing no time to visit anything. We spent most of the day on the bus and upon arriving in Niagara were put on a boat. Surely our tour guide should have given us more history of the area? Day three - six were much the same, long journeys in a bus with not a lot of information about the places we were in. Where were the walking tours? The history of the places? I feel like the most that was said to us was get as drunk as possible. Day seven was the most disappointing, 'historic New England' yet not a single word about this area was spoken. This day should have said 'today you will sit on a bus and watch films, there will be a short stop for ice cream at some point'. I don't understand how our guide can then put pressure on us to tip, he literally did nothing except push sales for extras which I am sure he would make a commission off. The whole trip was such a waste of money. I have done a Gadventures tour and busabout and both these were a million times better than contiki! The worst part was that contiki was so highly regarded. I would never recommend this to anyone. As I said I am contemplating legal action as well as potentially having a story of it released in the media. I will drop this issue if I am to be compensated. Thank you, Phoebe.

Some of the Optionals interfered with and overlapped with other activities, and should be switched around. Other than that, the trip was amazing!

I completed most of the optional extras. They were great prices, excellent chances to see more of the cities.

Washington DC hotel left a lot to be desired. Boston hotel is MILES away from the airport and the centre of Boston. I told Contiki and my trip manager that I had food intolerances and she called all restaurants before hand yet I still found myself having to explain them to waiters who seemed to have no idea someone with food intolerances would be coming. Hotels all seemed to be miles away from anything, including any included meals, except the Pittsburgh and Toronto ones.
