    Had an amazing time, met great people and saw so many wonderful sights. Lots of time spent on the coach but that’s all part of the experience. This was my first time away from home at Christmas and I don’t have any regrets.

    I was on a tour with Nihar Vasa. The tour was of the country of Poland. Nihar was very attentive to our group of 47. He provided some valuable information, some jokes (he needs to work on those) :-) and suggestions on what we will see and where to go for lunch or dinner. He was very approachable and very helpful to some of the people on the trip who needed some additional attention or assistance (dental work, hearing aid function). The weather didn't cooperate, but everyone seemed to make the best of it. I would recommend Nihar as a tour guide for future tours.

    Brianna was such an amazing tour guide. Besides her cool personality, she was hugely knowledgeable about all our destination cities. She knew the history of each place and on those long bus rides, found fun and engaging ways to tell those histories that would put my history teachers to shame. Brianna was a great tour guide through the cities. She made these great cheat sheets that told us where the good places to go in each city were and what times things were and "local tips" like the best restaurants, where to get the cheapest tickets, or even where to do activities that were not on the tour. Truly made my contiki experience one i'll remember for a lifetime.

I met so many fantastic people on this trip who were outstanding. I chose to go in winter cuz i love winter landscapes and a chance to have a sip of hot muddle wine! Being in a beautiful place or experiencing something “once in a lifetime” is also a great catalyst for some deep thinking. For my indian fellows, the only thing I wanna say "Zindagi na milegi doobara mere dost"

    Nihar is an awesome tour guide. I learned so many new things about the places we visited on our 12 day tour. He was very helpful and the trip would have been terrible without him and his positive energy!
