Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Is It possible to end the journey in Naples and not go to Greece?

      Yes, you are able to leave and start the tour whenever you like at your own will. However, this does not change the price.

    • Is it possible to start this tour in Paris?

      It is possible to start this tour in Paris, just bear in mind you will not be refunded the unused services.

    • Are teens under 18 allowed?

      This tour operator is quite strict with their age minimum. In rare circumstances they will allow a 17 year old who is near to their 18th birthday to travel, if they are with someone who is within the age bracket for Contiki 18-35 years old.

      If this trip isn't quite what you were looking for, we still have plenty of fantastic tours. Get in contact with us and our customer support team will work on pairing you with the perfect adventure.
