    This trip exceeded my expectations of a contiki tour! Everyone in the group were so lovely and friendly. Trip manager Cameron and driver Reuben have been more than great throughout the entire trip.

    Where do I start!? Megs is hands down the best tour manager you will ever have. From her bubbly personality and warm smile, she makes you feel at ease straight away. Her level of knowledge is insane and blows you away. She is not only knowledgeable and informative, but she is so much fun to go out with and enjoy a night out as well. Any tour you have with Megs I will guarantee will be three times as good as you could ever imagine!

    This tour was an incredible way to gain a snapshot of Europe and meet some amazing people along the way. In particular the tour manager Megs was fantastic. She has an uncanny ability to lift your spirits when the hectic pace of Contiki starts to get on top of you. Her knowledge of every country we visit is mind blowing, and in the unlikely circumstance she is faced with a question she cannot answer, she makes sure you have the answer before the day is out! Megs's love for travel is obvious in her introductions to each country and the meticulous effort she puts into her day sheets. Megs was the life force of the trip and I can't imagine having enjoyed myself half as much if she wasn't my tour manager!

    Before I started my European encounter I had stepped foot on the bus filled with excitement, expectations and worries about the fact I was about to be thrown on a bus with up to 50 people I didn't know. It is now safe to say that my excitement was warranted. My expectations were blown out of the water and my worries were not needed. From day 1 Megs made everybody feel at home with each other. Throughout the whole tour she made it a fun, cultural and rewarding experience without once breaking her composure. Her personality illuminated every moment and not a single bus trip was the same. Anybody looking to try a contiki or continue with contiki would be lucky to have Megs as their TM.

    When I first stepped foot on the European Encounter contiki bus I was filled with high expectations and was very anxious about the whole situation of being thrown on a bus with 40+ strangers. It's now safe to say that thanks to Megs my expectations were blown out of the water and any stress about getting to know the group was unnecessary. From day 1 Megs made the tour exciting, cultural and helped to tick off everybody's individual bucket lists wherever we went. Not once was there a moment myself or anybody was left with anything but a feeling of total awe whilst watching Megs tour us through Europe. Couldn't have imagined it without her!
