He was exactly the tour guide you would want to have a killer experience overseas. Laser and Richy, the bus driver, were a great team, keeping the bus entertained during all hours on board.

    By far the best thing ive ever done, and absolutely could not say that if we didnt have anne-elyse as our guide. The most amazing person youll ever meet! Her knowledge, and her love and warmth along with her positive and fun attitude made every day worth it!! Would recommend a trip with her in a heartbeat!!

    Tammy was my guide on a tour through Europe. She is a motivated and enthusiastic person who strives to make sure you're enjoying yourself at all times. The prepared notes (very beautiful drawn) and the area knowledge she shared kept me in the loop and on time to make sure I got the most out of each destination. I'd be incredibly lucky to have her as my guide again in the future.

    Anne-Elyse was the most fantastic tour guide! She did everything possible to make our trip the best ever. She made the effort to make a personal connection with all the travellers and I would definitely want to travel with her again!

    I did winter European inspiration with Anne-Elyse. She was amazing. She knew so much about each place and kept our spirits up as a cold went around the bus with her amazing humour. I could not become her enough. 11/10

    Going into contiki I had no expectations, I had never travelled internationally without family. I met with the contiki crew in Amsterdam after one day of their tour. Anne-Elyce was the most welcoming tour manager I could have imagined. She instantly made me feel at home in the group. The entire trip she made everyone feel like part of a family. Everything was organised well and ran smoothly and Anne-Elyce made sure everyone knew the itinerary for each city. Despite being sick, she met everyone with a cheerful smile each morning and kept this up each day. Had it not been for Anne-Elyce's humour, passion and decication to the group, I'm not sure I would have had such a fantastic trip

    I went on the European Inspiration (Winter) Tour at the beginning of 2016. I wanted to step out of my comfort zone so I decided to go on my own. I was really nervous about it at first but when I met our tour guide Dani I knew that it was going to be an amazing trip. Dani encouraged us all to interact with one another and made it such an enjoyable trip. Her positive energy and informative travel tips ensured that each and every one of us had a great time. She was also a lot of fun and often came out with us to make sure we were all enjoying ourselves. If we needed someone to talk to she was always up for a chat. My favourite thing about Dani was that she would always walk up and down the bus on a long journey and chat to us all - well those of us who weren't asleep! It was an unforgettable trip and I made memories that will last a lifetime. Anyone who gets Dani as their tour guide on one of the Contiki trips is sure to have an amazing time! Lia :)

    Ive done 2 contiki tours in the space of 2 years, and amazingly had the same tour guide for both! Lasse was my guide, and i had the privilege of having him twice. He made us feel so safe, comfortable and his knowledge of europe taught us all so much. He'd be out teacher during the day, and became one of us at night which was really awesome to see. I think i enjoyed my tour a lot more because i had such a good tour guide, it just makes everything much more memorable.

I loved the places we stayed, the parts of each city we visited, and the pubs to end the day haha. My tour was at the end of 2012, the Winter Wanderer, and I still remember it as one of the best two weeks of my life. Big ups from me

    Tammy was straight up. Obviously knew what she was doing and made sure we had the best time. Not only did she guide us she also came out and cut shapes with us. Honestly my first contiki couldn't have been better. 100% would do another tour with her straight up.
