The trip was organized expertly with smooth transitions to all of our beautiful destinations. Our tour guide Greg was very insightful and his knowledge of Thailand and its culture was second to none. He was extremely helpful in his recommendations of outside activities and places to eat. ..."

    This trip was absolutely amazing! I have made some unforgettable memories and experiences to last me a lifetime! Our tour manager Greg was the best! He was as enthusiastic as us and such fun to interact with, loved the accommodation and the optional activities like cooking classes and the sights we saw. Definitely no regrets

    Greg is such an amazing tour manager. Even though we were only together for a short time, he made our trip memorable. His laughter and energy is infectious ❤️ He really went out of the way and made our trip as smooth as possible. I only wish my outfits were as amazing as his. ✌

    So I have never been to Aisa before and decided to book a contiki trip with my boyfriend. I did not know what to expected but I am so glad we had and was worth every penny! First night in Bangkok we met our group and tour guide Greg. I wasent expecting the group to be as large as it was but non the less everyone was great. Next our tour guide Greg spoke to us of his knowledge of Thailand and a great insight into the culture and behaviors. Straight away I was at ease as Greg was so knowledgeable of this country and what to do here to make my experience the best it can be. Every day was breathtaking and I got to experience a lot of activities I didn’t think I could do like the ziplining. It was also very much laid back aswell. I couldn’t recommend Greg anymore he is amazing at his job and it’s great to see someone so passionate about this country and making you enjoy your experience aswell! Thank you again Greg!
