        The included meals were not good at all and i think the itinerary could be a lot more organized. I spent most of my time waiting for meetup times. I thought it was a waste of money as I didn’t enjoy my experience and I would not recommend it to anyone

        Pace of the tour was great - I'm an 'on the go' kind of traveller so it suited me just fine. Sure there were long bus days and they were torture but you're covering a lot of ground so it's expected. There was no pressure to take up the optional... Show more

        It was a spectacular trip. Everything we could have hoped for and more. Unfortunately, the major let down was the other people on the trip. Lots of b****y fights and catty behaviour just made it unpleasant. I would do one again in a heart beat but cross... Show more

        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!

          Shared accommodation with other like-minded travellers is normal on Contiki, and is all part of the experience. How many people you will be sharing with depends on the region, travel style and type of accommodation, but twin or quad same-sex sharing is generally the case.

        • Can I see the accommodation list?

          Generally three weeks prior to your Contiki trips departure date you will be sent a list of your accommodation within your pre-travel finalised documents.

        • Can we book an airport transfer?

          Transfers are not included in the trip, and you will need to find your own way to the trip starting point however your travel documents will have plenty of handy hints to help you find your way.

        • Is there wifi on the coach?
