Brooke "My experience with Contiki Winter Wanderer in 2013 was amazing only because of our tour manager, Lasse Damstoft. Not only was the trip very organized, but Lasse made the extra effort to go on walking tours with us, provided excellent advice and history at each location and overall devoted everyday to an amazing experience.

    Kassie was an amazing guide, her knowledge of Europe is incredible. We had lots of fun as a tour and there was never a dull moment! She really made it the trip of a lifetime, even in the days there wasn't anything planned she would organise things if we wanted! She was kind and caring and if you needed anything you could go to her! Seriously Kassie made it the trip of a lifetime:)

    Absolute legend of a tour manager, gets involved and has fun with you and goes out of her way to get to know everyone on her tour. Clearly prepares well for each tour, as she knows everything about the places you visit from a historical perspective to where the best bars are, to where you can get a late night kebab in Barcelona! To sum it all up, megs is just a great person and you couldn't ask for a better tour manager.

    My husband and I did a contiki tour for our honeymoon and it was the most amazing experience of our lives! Our tour manager, Lasse, was absolutely brilliant and definitely made the tour one to remember. We had a perfect amount of time to ourselves and time with the group. We would definitely recommend Contiki to everybody!

    If it is your first time traveling to Europe, I highly recommend doing the Winter Wanderer. I have been on other tours before and the thing that set this trip apart from the rest was the amazing staff led by Tour Manager Lasse. Lasse was the ultimate professional, he effortless learnt everyone’s name and made everyone feel like they were getting their own VIP experience of Europe. I was so lucky to have Lasse as my tour manager, he had extraordinary knowledge of each city and associated history and he went above and beyond everyday to make it the best experience for the entire group. The most important thing for me is I felt so safe and carefree with the group led by Lasse, all we had to do was sit back and enjoy while everything was being organized for us. I highly recommend this tour! I had the best time of life. The memories and friends I have made on this tour I will treasure for life and I am lucky enough to still catch up with some of these friends who without this trip I would have never met.

Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • January 1, 2017

      I got impressed with many of the tours advertised on your site. I'd like however to clarify whether the age information dispayed for each of the tours is a limitation or a recommendation?

      In some cases it is strictly limited to these particular ages. Contiki, Topdeck and a few others operate tours for travellers purely between ages (18-39). They are geared towards active, budget-minded young travellers who want to meet other people from all over the world, and tend to be very popular with students and backpackers. Any other tours that state, for example 18-65, this is just a guide. It is only tours that are 18-39 (or less) that are strictly limited to those ages. If you are looking for a tour better suited to your age range, we are happy to assist you in finding yout perfect adventure.

    • November 1, 2016

      Can a 2 year old join this tour?

      This trip is restricted only to 18-35 year olds.

    • November 1, 2016

      Are the additional services free or do I have to pay extra?

      Yes, the additional services listed for this tour are included in the overall tour price, but there are also other optional services and additional activities which you can book based on the advertised prices.
