    My trip with Sian was absolutely perfect! She was very organised, and made the effort to get to know everyone on the tour. The accommodation was all great and our Contiki coach was always clean and tidy.

    Sian was an amazing guide as I've come to expect from Contiki -- with this being my 4th tour. She had everything organized in terms of sights and nightlife, and most importantly was extremely easy to talk to!

    What a journey! Greg you did an amazing job. Couldn't have asked for a more caring, enthusiastic, knowledgeable and entertaining guide. The accommodation was good, some of the feasts that were add ons were a tad lacking.

    The trip was all I expected and more. Greg, our tour bus managers was one of the best parts. He had all the knowledge and recommendations on every place we went to get the most out of our short time in each city. I would definately tour with him again.

      A lot of choice of tours plus peace of mind about choosing a trusted local tour operator. I was a little apprehensive to book a holiday online but the company is trustworthy and I found reviews I could trust about it.
