It was my first time travelling alone so I was really nervous about getting lost, making friends etc. Ended up being the most amazing trip and I feel that was mainly due to Matt.

    Best Freaking Tour Guide Ever!!!!! For over a decade I have been using tour companies to travel the world. It was the "Contiki" Japan tour that brought me too Matt. Mathew Cramier... It’s hard to describe a guy like him considering there aren’t that many people in this world that I could give so many good qualities too. He is easily the kindest, funniest, and most patient guide that I have ever had. I could spend the rest of this review describing his professionalism and wealth of knowledge as a Tour Guide should have...But that is not why he stands out to me. It’s because he was able to make each day regardless of the situation feel like a blast. He never seemed tired and was always helpful. I literally have more great memories from that short trip than all the tours combined. If I had to choose one tour guide and one country of choice. Then it would be Matt and any country that he would like to visit. I hope this review is short and sweet enough for you to get the point. As far as I am concerned, he is by far the best and choosing anyone else as a guide is simply a mistake. Robert (Luke) Tunstall

    Matt completely made our tour in Japan. He seemed to have a supernatural knowledge of where the toilets where and where we were going at every point on the trip, and would completely go out of his way to make sure everyone on the tour was happy. His enthusiasm and sense of humour is infectious. He was somehow able to go out with us seemingly every night and we always had a good time.

    Going through Japan with Matt was incredible, his knowledge and spirit are completely unmatched. Matt made every effort to bring the group together with extreme success. His personal touches of having night time plans and a theme party at the end of tour were amazing and will not be forgotten! Matt has found the perfect blend of professional and fun for a tour guide!

Not once did I feel stressed or uncomfortable and I came home with nothing but good memories. Matt was very professional and organised with any queries or requests we made. he was very knowledgable and some of the highlights of the trip were places he'd suggested. Definitely a more confident traveller thanks to Matt!

    At the end of contiki I was asked to complete a survey on how well I felt our tour guide had treated us on the tour and I could not find a single complaint with Matt. He was a good friend and extremely fun for the whole two weeks. Could not have asked for a better your guide
