I really enjoyed this trip, the places were beautiful and we got a taste of everything. I definitely recommend this trip to anyone who doesn’t want to do a long contiki. I wish I had chosen to do the grand southern contiki as you get close with your group and it’s a really good experience and great value for money.

Saw so many amazing places, it's a real good "taste tester" to see which places you'd like to go back and visit for longer.

Itinerary could be modified to allow more days in certain states and make the bus days further apart. Would also have liked it to be more open about the fact the Southern Adventure was part of a larger tour, and again with the eastern leg. Majority of people did not realise this was the case. When researching this trip, there didn’t seem to be many trips for under 20 days that focused on less travelled states of the USA. I was looking to find a trip that didn’t include LA, Vegas, NYC or any of the major stops. Or at least have to spend too many days here. Would have liked to do the middle part of the Grand Southern (minus Florida) and covered those smaller states that are harder to get to and were more focused on the history of the US. I understand Vegas and Florida added a different element to the tour to balance out the history, however there would definitely be a market out there for a trip that was between the 10-20 days and allowed people to discover another side to the US. Overall, the trip was great however would have preferred a smaller group size. Having almost 50 people makes things that little bit more challenging and time consuming. It’s hard to get to know 49 other people, especially if you’re only on part of an extended tour.

One of the best trips I have done. I could not speak highly enough of my guide Kade Ferguson, he went above and beyond throughout my trip. Kade had wealth of knowledge on american history and local knowledge and always made the long drives interesting. Thank you for everything Kade, I will differently be a Contiki customer again because of you.

A trip that is great to get your experience of the USA! Make sure you stay in New Orleans a bit longer or even do a trip to Florida! So close by.

Was such a good trip ! Ever place we stopped at had something great to offer. Favourite place would have been Texas! The place had such a great vibe to it. The Grand Canyon was simply breathtaking. And the hot air ballon ride in the Albuquerque balloon Fiesta was amazing !!!! So many great experiences had and many great memories made !!!
