    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.

She is such a well rounded awesome tour guide and I felt that without her my trip wouldn't have been as memorable!
