Sol Seeker (From Dec 2019)
Good customer service but key information omitted
For the price paid, we felt that there should have been more included activities. We were able to find the same or similar activities to the ones offered by Contiki at much cheaper prices. For example, we did a catamaran trip to Isla Mujeres at a fraction of the price quoted by Contiki. The included meals weren't very nice or authentic and seemed like a waste of money on Contiki's part. Eating at restaurants like the one we ate at for the welcome meal in Mexico City is unnecessary. Additionally, the day we spent in Playa del Carmen was a waste and should be replaced with Tulum. We organised a day trip to Tulum from Cancun ourselves and had an amazing time. I wish we had more time there and that it was included on the tour. The main issue I had with the trip was that I experienced quite a bit of racism from the other travellers. Remarks were made about my appearance and I was actively excluded when we first joined the tour in Mexico City. After deciding not to leave the tour (considering how much money I'd spent and that I'd spent several months looking forward to it) we ended up creating our own itinerary and keeping to ourselves. The trip manager seemed oblivious to this, which was a poor reflection on Contiki. I'm an experienced traveller and when I travel I want to be immersed in the culture of a new country, eat local food, learn about the history and meet the people. I want an authentic experience. Unfortunately, this isn't what Contiki offers. The main objective seemed to be getting blind drunk and being too hungover to truly travel and explore during the day. Although this is clearly what some people are looking for in a travelling experience, I am not and therefore I will not be using Contiki again.

    Thank you for sharing your experience on the Contiki Sol Seeker here with us; we really appreciate hearing from our travellers. While we hope you were able to enjoy your trip for the most part, we regret to note that there were certain aspects of your time away with us that didn't entirely live up to your expectations. As we really do take on board all of the feedback we receive, please do be assured that your comments will be shared with our Operations and Product Development teams for their attention and consideration. On another note, it genuinely saddens us to learn that you might have experienced any form of racism from some of your fellow travellers, as this is certainly not something we stand for here at Contiki. Indeed, our professionally trained Trip Managers are always available to provide assistance when these issues arise, and we do encourage our travellers to bring any concerns to their attention. Having said this, we still hope you were able to come away from this trip with some great memories and new friendships in place. While we note that you may not choose to travel with us again in the future, we nevertheless wish you all the best in your future explorations.

Argentina & Brazil Highlights
Perfect trip!
Great value for the trip. We hit everything I could have wanted and more! Every second of the trip was planned perfectly. The group I was with was amazing and we all wanted to have a good time. I was worried about being in a foreign country alone but everyone was very welcoming and I never felt unsafe.

Argentina & Brazil Highlights
Brazilian Carnival and Argentina were INCREDIBLEEEEEEEEEEEEE!
Jhono was the reason this trip went from great to SPECTACULAR! I have been on 5 Contiki tours and they were all wonderful, but this trip was just on another level. Yes, we were in Brazil for Carnival and naturally, it was crazy fun, but the experience Jhono had made it ten times better. Argentina was amazing and the food was delish. The accommodations were all good, nothing CRAZY, but def. worth the money. I feel so fortunate that we got such a knowledgable tour guide for this trip, I hope anyone who does South America, gets to experience what we did.

Argentina & Brazil Highlights
Great communication
This trip exceeded my expectations. I have travelled with similar companies before, mainly Topddeck however Contiki far outweighed other competitors. Contiki was well organised and had many great inclusions in this trip. The tour manager Jhono was amazing, he kept the group informed, on time and made sure despite the bad weather that we were able to get the most out of our trip. Jhono went above and beyond for us. The hotels we stayed at were great, spacious rooms. The included and optional activities were amazing and really highlighted the city's must see and do's.

Ecuador & Galapagos Island Hopper
Professional service
Amazing itinerary! All your bucket list dreams checked off! The Ecuador part of the trip has about 8 add-ons, which are amazing and I recommend trying them all, but that does bring the cost up by almost $400USD. Esteban was amazing, always going above and beyond to organize and take care of his guests. It is clear he takes his job very seriously, which I appreciate. I would definitely do this trip all over again if I could!!
Booked from Montreal, Quebec

Mexico Grande

I enjoyed this trip very much! The food was delicious, the hotels we were staying at were pretty nice and we got to visit many beautiful places. Ish told us a lot of interesting facts about the locations and the Mexican culture. He was always helpful. When our airline lost our luggage, he did his best to communicate with them and helped me and my friend get it back. We couldn‘t have asked for a better tour guide. I highly recommend this trip and traveling with contiki in general.

The Lava Line
The Lava Line
The lava line was an extremely active trip. I experienced so many new adventures and sights. Although i am very pleased that all the information was given to me at first so that i could experience the amazingness on my own i do wish i was aware of how much endurance i needed to keep up ahead of time with being out of shape. However if they did tell me it is possible that i wouldnt have had as great of a time as i did. I wouldnt change a thing!

This was a great trip. I loved every part of it, especially the stay in Jungle lodge in the middle of nowhere. It literally took my breath away, while staying in very high altitudes for days.

    Thank you for sharing your feedback here with us. While we hope you enjoyed your time in Costa Rica overall, it concerns us to know that there may have been any miscommunication regarding the fact that it is possible for our travellers to join us on the road at an earlier date to explore more of Central America with Contiki. Allow us to explain that while this is indeed the case with many of our trips, each one is designed to stand on its own as a full and unique experience. Nevertheless, we fully appreciate your thoughts, and have shared them with our Marketing Department for their consideration going forward. We hope you were still able to take home some lasting memories and friendships from your time away with Contiki.

Andean Crossing
Amaaaazing Tour!
Having been the first Contiki trip I’ve ever done I didn’t know what to expect. It was such an amazing trip that I would recommend to anyone with no hesitation. Our trip manager Jhono was incredible and we visited the most amazing places . Saw and experienced some of the best Peru, Bolivia and Chile have to offer. Always felt safe and the add ons were were also worth doing!! Couldn’t recommend this trip enough!
