Matt Guide at Contiki

Australia, Melbourne

37 Reviews
Avg. Rating
11 Tours
Born and raised in Melbourne, Australia with a Sri Lankan background, the decision to leave home and work with Contiki was sparked with nothing more than being completely fed up of having no idea what to do with my life. This was also coupled with the fact that I had just finished an amazing 36 day European trip with Contiki. Little did I know that I would find my life calling through giving people the trip of a lifetime. On my Contiki tour in 2006, I had created the most amazing memories with the most amazing people and it was this experience that I was determined to replicated for each and every person that came onto my trips. Years down the track and it is this same passion that drives me to give my all for my groups.
