    I did the contiki European Whirl tour with my friend and we had Sian as our guide. Sian made the whole experience absolutely incredible and knew everything about every city we went to, from where to buy the tastiest food to how to navigate our way around. She was always bubbly and happy every time we saw her, and was so friendly and easy to get along with. No matter how big the night before was, Sian was always able to get the group in an excited mood every morning on the coach and was always more than happy to answer any questions or solve any issues we had. I had the time of my life on this tour and if I could, I would choose Sian to be my tour guide again on every future tour I go on.
