Gurdass "In summer of 2013 I went on my first ever overseas trip solo. Prior to leaving for Europe I was definitely a little hesitant about the whole tour and being on a foreign continent, etc. Little did I know than that I would have such a great experience! I couldn't have asked for a better tour manager and group to tour Europe with. Our tour manager Kassie went above and beyond interms of the suggestio..."

    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!

    The trip was incredible and surpassed all my expectations! Contiki made sure I experienced as much as humanly possible in the time allotted, and there was no excuse not to have fun. I had the best time of my life on tour with Contiki!

    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.

    Our Contiki tour was booked with some apprehension, we weren't sure if we would fit in with the group, or what to expect... and I'm happy to say, we were blown away! We've had the most amazing time, we had the most amazing group, but the people that really made it all worth it was our tour manager Megs, and our driver, Guiseppe. What a great team, and a great tour. So much fun, and would do it all over again!

    Megz really set the tone from day1. I knew immediately the trip was going to incredible... her speech on the way to Amsterdam was hilarious. Megz goes above and beyond her job role and really gets involved with her group, she also handled a sensitive situation during the tour with the upmost dignity and respect. Megz has extensive knowledge of all cities visited and presents the knowledge in an engaging manner. Megz has set the bar high for her colleagues when I take my next tour.

    The website was easy to use and the tours were easy to select and compare. The staff were brilliant and really helpful when calling. I love the chat feature between the tour operator and I! It was perfect and allowed me to ask questions without having to call up constantly. Awesome company and I'll be using them again in the future.
