Taliah "Oh man, where do I start?? My husband and I got back this week from the European Magic tour with Megs. I was completely blown away by her knowledge, enthusiasm, and organization. Our trip was so amazing and stress free, and Megs definitely exceeded our expectations. I have a gluten allergy, so Megs even made a special map for me of gluten free restaurants in Italy. You can definitely tell how pass..."

    Our European Magic Contiki was a life changing experience! Meeting new people, seeing new places and learning about the history of it all truly was memorable. Rhett & Dom were so rich in knowledge and travelling alongside them was an honour. Definitely going to travel with Contiki again!

    The tour is amazing as we have covered so many countries in so little time. I even had the chance to visit the Louvre and had a selfie with Mona Lisa! Also, very fortunately, we have a very entertaining , high-energy tour guide Ms Cerrie who came out with games and activities to keep us occupied. Her knowledge of European history is excellent and we were all mesmerised by her ability to share the history in a story-telling way ! Not only that, Cerrie is an experienced tour manager and she put in a lot of efforts to ensure things running smoothly. For eg the moment we arrived at the restaurants, meals were ready. And a lot of tips of where to eat, shop and party. It’s worth mentioning the bus ride, although it can be fairly Long but the bus captain Mr OJ made it a smooth one. All the goods aside, I only have a pet peeve which is there is too much drinking because I am not so much of a drinker. But overall I can tell the group (huge group of 52 people) all enjoyed the tour very much.

    My European magic tour was awesome!! Ellie was our guide and she was so knowledgeable and helpful about where we were going and stuff to do. Our driver Pedro was phenomenal and always brought smiles to our faces! This tour is VERY fast paced. Please don't consider this tour if you want a lot of time in each city and you don't want early mornings. It takes time to drive to each place, so you are on the bus for a decent amount of time and you only get a few hours in some of the places! If you want to get a taste of each city than this is the tour for you! It will allow you to see which cities you like and which ones you would like to come back too! The me time optionals are obviously optional but most of the group chooses to do them so if you don't do them you will have to find something to do on your own. The moulin rouge show is expensive but it was AMAZING and you def should check it out. If you want to save money skip out on the Venitian dinner, wasn't that great!

    I was fortunate enough to have megs as our tour guide! She made the experience of travelling Europe go above and beyond my expectations. The recommendations on some of the simplest things made such a difference and of course the food was just incredible! I would go back to megs in a heart beat!

Our trip was so amazing and stress free, and Megs definitely exceeded our expectations. I have a gluten allergy, so Megs even made a special map for me of gluten free restaurants in Italy. You can definitely tell how passionate she is not only about travel, but about creating the best experience and vacation possible individually, and as a "contiki family". I have traveled on my own quite a bit, but we are already planning our next trip with Megs. Thanks for the trip of a lifetime.
