    I had the most wonderful experience with Contiki and our TM Martina. She was full of energy, knowledge and made sure that you were getting the most out of your trip. Can easily say that Martina made the holiday that much more. #aboveandbeyond #contikimartina #noregrets

    Simply Italy with Martina Musso was absolutely amazing! Having had the time of my life would be an understatement! I have been on a total of 5 Contiki and Martina was hands down the best TM I’ve had! Her fun, loving, caring personality made the group a family instantly! She knew everyone on a personal level and it made saying goodbye so so hard! Bus days were never boring with Martina either! She made everything fun whilst still remaining professional :)

    Martina was an amazing guide during the Simply Italy tour, in July 2017. Everyone was made welcome and constant love and laughter was shared throughout the 12 days. I wish I could travel with Martina again, it was an amazing time that I hope to remember forever.

    Marie was such an energetic, informative, fun, and helpful tour guide throughout the entire trip (simply Italy). She goes above and beyond to make sure we experience both the tourist attractions as well as local hang outs so that we can get the full experience in a short time. It were those tips she provided that made the trip memorable! She also gave such great info regarding the history of Italy as well as info on the modern state of the country. She is such a well rounded awesome tour guide and I felt that without her my trip wouldn't have been as memorable!

      The hotel Contiki usually use in Rome is:

      However this can change in cases where there is not enough availability. Did you know that you can add pre/post tour accommodation to your booking with Contiki? Then, if something changes, so will your pre/post booking so you'll always be in the same hotel as the tour hotel.

      The hotel is likely to be confirmed with your trip documents and vouchers which are usually issued some 4 weeks before travel if all services are confirmed well in advance. However, it is always subject to (unlikely) last minute changes - please keep this in mind.
