    I went on the Contiki Italian Espresso tour, which tours Rome, Florence, and Venice over a week. The tour was efficient in taking you to many different cities, and the tour bus from city to city was extremely convenient. One downside of going in a big tour group is that the group dinners are not at the best restaurants, but that is to be expected. Wifi on the bus was limited, but hotels were nice with AC and wifi in all of the rooms. Breakfast included in every hotel stay made mornings much easier! By far, the most excellent part of my trip was our tour guide, Martina. Martina was extremely knowledgable about Italian history and culture, and kept the trip exciting even on long bus ride. Her playlists were on point! She was able to help with any problem, and very easy to talk to. I would recommend a Contiki tour just to have Martina's help.

    I had such a great time on tour with Maïté! She made sure everything rand smoothly even when unforeseen circumstances arose. I remember me and my fiend d wanted to go to the Uffizzi in Florence but didn't know if we would be able to fit it in with the schedule since there is a big wait for tickets. Maïté was so kind and considerate and stood in line for us while we were on another supervised tour. I don't think every tour guide would take the time to do this. Maïté really cares that the people on her tour have a good time, and I did!

    Abosolute perfect because of the tour manager. She is brite, assured, and projects a sense of leadership. The group has confidence and feels secure consistantly with Ms Morelli clear instruction. This was a most rewarding trip we have ever experienced. We would look for her specifically.

    Italy had always been a dream for me!!! I couldn't have imagined a better trip guide. Maite, was sooo full of knowledge and so easy to get along with. She always gave great suggestions for "me time" activities and sites to visit!! She is caring and down to earth. Always makes sure each person has the best time on their vacation. Definitely travel with Maite!!

    I toured with Maïté when I took a Contiki tour of Italy in the summer of 2015. The trip was wonderful. Maïté was so knowledgeable and fun. She balanced teaching us history with also making sure we had a great time. She was so kind and answered all our questions and made sure we had an awesome trip. I can't thank her enough for an amazing trip to Italy

    Maïté was the absolutely best tour guide anyone could ask for. She was very knowledgeable and loved to share it all. She was eager to answer everyone's questions and enjoyed making us all smile and laugh. If I could go on more trips with her as my guide, I'd sign up for every one of them!

We chose Contiki in Italy (we were in Europe for 6 weeks and travelled everywhere else independently) because we wanted to see a lot of sights in a short period. Maite certainly helped us achieve our goal. Every morning she had got us up on time, told us the history and fun facts about everywhere we were going and made great sight and restaurant suggestions for our free time. It's been 4 years since I met Maite and I've been to 7 countries since. It was the best tour I've ever done!

      The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
