    They say #NoRegrets but this trip should have been hashtagged #SoManyRegrets. What a colossal waste of money. The way this trip is marketed makes you assume you're going to be laying back relaxing on a yacht, not on a cruise packed like sardines with grumpy seniors. We were on the Celestyal Olympia aka Celestyal "No Redeeming Qualities". As for the Contiki group, we had a very small group (10 people, if that) that was very separated; we didn't have the traditional Contiki bonding that you get on other tours. It felt very highschool and clique- y. The excursions themselves, especially the trip to Santorini, are WAY overpriced for what you get. We spent half an hour if not longer on a bus up to Santorini and literally had an hour of free time to walk around and see the island until we had to go back. We were told we'd be going up to one of the other towns via donkey which I was really excited about, until we were then informed that we "didn't have enough time" because apparently we were coordinating with another group. Contiki has many other awesome tours but this one did not make the cut. Don't waste your money.

    5.0 - Excellent

    Our trip was amazing and Nicole had all the local knowledge to make our experience more personal by taking the time to get to know us individually, making sure we didn't miss a thing we wanted to experience! When I think back to our 4 months in Europe, the Agean Classic is on the top of my list for memories. Nicole also went above and beyond and helped us out in a big way when we got back to Athens and found out another trip we had booked (to Egypt) had been cancelled. Nicole helped us out with ferry guides and plan our extra unplanned stay in Greece
