    Brianna was such an amazing tour guide. Besides her cool personality, she was hugely knowledgeable about all our destination cities. She knew the history of each place and on those long bus rides, found fun and engaging ways to tell those histories that would put my history teachers to shame. Brianna was a great tour guide through the cities. She made these great cheat sheets that told us where the good places to go in each city were and what times things were and "local tips" like the best restaurants, where to get the cheapest tickets, or even where to do activities that were not on the tour. Truly made my contiki experience one i'll remember for a lifetime.

    Kassie made our trip memorable. She would always go out of her way to make sure everyone's requirements were met, no easy with 50 individuals. Would definitely recommend traveling with Kassie as your leader!

    The most amazing trip of a lifetime which I'm sure wouldn't have been the same if Kassie hadn't been our tour manager. She was so knowledgeable and, as a solo traveller, made me feel so welcome.
