    My girlfriend and I loved our Contiki! The people we met, the places we saw and the tour was amazing! Our tour manager Megs put so much time and effort into organising everything for us and we couldn't thank her enough. Her and Pav were always down for a good chat and both made the bus trips enjoyable. Thank you! Sebastian & Jaimee

    Exploring Europe for the first time via contiki (and Megs) was probably one of the best decisions I've ever made. It was such a well laid out tour and Megs was absolutely amazing in ensuring we have a great time, even when unforseenable circumstances arose. She made sure we got the most out of every country and made every experience beyond enjoyable, and she was more of a friend rather than merely a tour manager. She made this trip as memorable as it is for all of us!

    I literally could not of dreamt for a better tour to choose, or a better tour manager to run it. Megs was incredible for the entire 19 days, teaching us history of every place whilst making everything fun and interesting. It was our first time in Europe and it was one of the most amazing things we have ever done. She kept the entire tour running smoothly even when unforeseen delays arose. I wish my life was narrated by her themed playlists! And I miss our wee Contiki fam xx

    My contiki trip was worth every single cent I spent! Our tour manager, Megs, was so so amazing at her job Everything was organised for us and she was so knowledgable about everything we did and at the same time knew how to party! Every single thing she reccomended from food to places to visit was well worth it Having everything planned made the trip so easy! From wifi passwords to nightclubs megs was all over it. She made us bond and is the reason for some strong friendships and the real family feel within the group The overall experience was amazing and it well and truely gave me the travel bug I can not wait to go back

    Megs was overal such an amazing person! She made sure everything for our trip was as organized as could be and that we got the most out of every place we went. She wasn't just a tour manager, she was practically one of us and she never turned down an opportunity to party with the contiki fam! So intelligent and informed, and she always wanted to share everything she could with us. So grateful the Contiki gods blessed us with Megs as our manager!!

Our tour manager Megs was absolutely amazing and is a star - A real asset to Contiki as she went above and beyond what she needed to do and pushed us all to not only have a great time and experience new things but to also experience different cultures, understand history and meet new people. Her energy and passion really added to the trip and made it what it was. I would totally recommend the trip to anyone who wants to expand their horizons, meet new people, see amazing sites and have an absolute blast!
