    I was fortunate enough to have megs as our tour guide! She made the experience of travelling Europe go above and beyond my expectations. The recommendations on some of the simplest things made such a difference and of course the food was just incredible! I would go back to megs in a heart beat!

    Oh man, where do I start?? My husband and I got back this week from the European Magic tour with Megs. I was completely blown away by her knowledge, enthusiasm, and organization. Our trip was so amazing and stress free, and Megs definitely exceeded our expectations. I have a gluten allergy, so Megs even made a special map for me of gluten free restaurants in Italy. You can definitely tell how passionate she is not only about travel, but about creating the best experience and vacation possible individually, and as a "contiki family". I have traveled on my own quite a bit, but we are already planning our next trip with Megs. Thanks for the trip of a lifetime.

    I recently went on the European Magic tour with Megs and it was unforgettable. Within the first day Megs pushed you outside your comfort zone in the best way possible to make new friends that became family over the next 8 days. She was so knowledgeable about every aspect of the trip. I felt like I had the best history teacher that made things fun and interesting, but at the same time was the life of the party. I could tell she really enjoyed her role as tour manager and saw to it that everyone had the time of their lives. You can tell she puts countless hours and effort into what she loves doing from the artwork and info on the day sheets that prepared you for the day, the choreographed playlists and games to keep you awake and ready to carry on, and the exciting history lessons/fun facts of the next country we were going to see. I would highly recommmend booking a trip with Megs. She made it unforgettable.

    I enjoyed some parts of the trip we visited,such as the likes of Amsterdam,St Goar and Paris. Despite the lengthy history lectures the tour manager knew her job. Good organising skills she has.

    I went on a contiki tour called European Magic! I am 21 and decided it was time to travel, alone! I was very nervous about going on the trip because l was doing this alone. I quickly realized that l had absolutely nothing to worry about! We all met up the night before and were introduced to our fellow travelers and guide! Megs was our guide for this tour, she instantly made everyone feel welcome and honestly feel like one big family! She has a contagious smile that radiates throughout the coach and travel destinations. She always walked along the coach talking to others and making sure that if anyone had any questions or concerns she would be there to help and guide everyone along. Her positive attitude helped me come out of my shell almost instantly! I would highly recommend going on a contiki tour and having her as your guide! I couldn't imagine having anyone else as a tour guide just because she made me and others feel so loved! I love ya megs and thank you for making my trip a trip l will never forget!

So when Megs told us that we would be a family by the end of it no one believed it could be true, but now ending the trip we have made lifelong friends, our little ContikiFam! Megs was the best tour manager ever! And we are now all so close that we even all share the Contiki cough! Hats of to Megs for making my first Contiki trip an unforgettable one! i cannot wait to do another tour with Megs! Visiting so many countries in 9 days would have not been possible without our amazing driver Miki! Just to prove how brilliant this trip was, at the end of the 9 days together I have no voice left because we all talked so much.. #contikifam #contikicough #contikimegs #contikimiki
