    I did the European Highlights trip in 2016. It was so different to what I had imagined! Anne-Elyse was an amazing guide and Balazs was an incredible driver. If it wasn't for these two guys my trip would have been only half of what it was. We really were treated like family.

    I had an amazing time with Kayla and Timmy, along with the rest of the gang! This is truly a highlights tour, very quick and often rushed (like in munich) but we were lucky to hit Springfest, go to Moulin Rouge. As a veggie, they were very accommodating, although we never really knew what we were having beforehand (it was a nice surprise I guess!). Budget a little extra for tipping and transport if you plan to go out, as you often require metro or uber/taxi to get back to the hotel/hostel. All in all a great tour to introduce myself to Europe, definitely looking to book another in the future!

    Kassie made the tour!. From her knowledge of Europe to her sense of humour and professionalism the experience wouldn't have been the same without her guidance. Very greatful to have toured with such a wonderful guide.

    Before I went on the trip I had an idea of what it would be like, but once the trip begun I realised I had absolutely no idea what kind of adventure I was in for. Everyone in the group became an incredible family and we got to experience and explore so many different places in Europe. Anne-Elyse made the tour what it was. She went above and beyond to make sure every single one of us were having the time of our lives and I, and I'm sure everyone else, will be forever greatful for making our contiki trip the most incredible time of our lives that we will never forget.

    Our guide Matt was excellent. He was able to provide a lot of information on each city and area we visited as well he would consistently go above and beyond to ensure our trip was amazing. One example was he was able to get us into saint Michael basilica in Venice where no other group had been able to. The trip was amazing and in no small part due to Matt.

    It was my first time in Europe and I went on the European Highlights tour with Megs. Megs is nothing short of excellence. She was always there for everyone. A great balance of professionalism and someone you can confide in for advice. I have made a friend in Megs and I will forever remember the impact she has had on my life. Contiki is very lucky to have her. She is sweet, caring, kind, funny, and last but not least she is so knowledgeable! Anyone that gets a tour with her is so lucky! I look forward to our paths crossing again one day!:)

Tour guide Matt Grieves really made the experience with his impeccable organisation including extra group activities such as Antibes Land. His delivery of information when visiting the major cities was captivating and exciting with his little tips on places to eat and visit that weren't a major tourist hot spot. Best experience of my life!
