    It was my first time heading to Europe and travelling overseas by myself. It was a great primer to discovering my travel bug and we went to so many cities and ticked off a lot of bucket list items. It encouraged me to start a travel blog. As the tour is so massive i had to write a 3 part review for it on my blog. Check it out at Wanderlust Hacker.

    My first Contiki tour was with Megs. I had 2 more that followed straight after and I can say hands down Megs was the best tour manager ever!!! She made everyday so exciting and looking forward to what fun amazing adventures she would take us on! She made learning history fun and relatable to our way of living now! Our group was one of the closest she has ever had we became a family by day 2 and saying goodbye at the end was like saying goodbye to family, very hard but we knew it wasn't forever. Megs made you want to get up each day and explore the beautiful things this world has to offer. She is by far an asset for Contiki and because of her I would book again!

    Meg is literally the best thing that can happen to you. Seriously. Me and the group spent almost a month together with her and it's really weird when someone's just a crazy persons level of happy every everyday, and doesn't have to act like it. She's a burst of bubbles and sunshine, who's personality and morning tour rituals go with you for a lifetime. Your Red Bull guys!

    I was travelling on my own and thought Contiki would be a great way to do it - I loved the tour I was on from all the cities we went to - to the company I was with. Some of the hotels weren't as nice to stay in and a little bit scary but thats honestly my only negative feedback! Contiki is very fast paced but jam packed with so many cities - I recommend it as a way to meet people and fit a lot of cities in in a small time frame!

    I had Kassie as my tour manager for 2 contiki tours and she was fantastic. On the first tour she was always so happy to help, she went out of her way to make my trip amazing. When I found out she was going to be my tour manager for my second trip I was absolutely stoked. She remembered me from the tour 2 years prior and was just as helpful, fun and informative on all the countries we visited. Words cannot describe how awesome she is and I would be thrilled to do another tour with her

    Hi So I travelled with contiki two years ago and did the European explorer plus Greek island cruising tour. Our tour guide Kassie was amazing. She just had a wealth of knowledge about all the places that we visited. Being it was my first time travelling around Europe, I couldn't fault it. This tour had a bit of everything, history lessons, down time for yourself and great fun group activities. Although the long bus rides can make you very tired, Kassie was able to make the time go fast. Either we would play games or watch movies which were related to our next destination. Kassie would always have time to answer any questions that I had. I will always remember and she will probably remember this aswell lol. We were in Venice and I am a collector of Venetian masks. I asked Kassie, wheres the best place to buy a authentic Venetian mask. She was kind enough to wait for me and some others after we had finished our walking tour to walk us to a mask shop. The manager of this shop even gave us a demonstration on how he makes the masks. I spent about one hour in this shop, trying to find the perfect mask, I purchased three and spent a few euros, but well worth it. After this trip, I have memories that I will cherish for a lifetime. In the future I will hopefully go on another contiki tour, however, the expectations are high after having Kassie as a tour guide. Thanks heaps Kassie and contiki!

    Kassie is a wonderful helpful tour manager nothing was to much trouble. It was like she enjoyed answering everyone's questions like "what's the wifi password" and "how much longer till we stop" "what time is breakfast" she always had a smile on her face was full of knowledge about everywhere we went. She even told stories about places we wasn't even visiting on our trip. She would always go above and beyond to help anybody and make our trip as awesome as it could be. My only criticism is that she needs to bring a step to stand on when she talks on the coach as if you are sat anywhere other than the first 3 rows you can't see her because she is so small.

    Did the European Explorer + Mykonos Island Contiki tour back in 2014 with Kassie being the trip manager. Kassie was such an awesome tour guide. Great knowledge, always smiling, and above all knows how to make the trip fun and memorable. Have completed two other Contiki tours in the Americas region since then, but none have been as great as Kassie's!
