Frequently Asked Questions

    • 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.

    • 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.

    • What type of accomodation is included in this tour?

      This Tour includes hotel accommodation,there is a triple or twin share option.

    • I am looking at this tour here and I am wondering how much it covers. Does the tour cover hotel rooms every night, meals, admission fees to the Louvre, etc and transportation is included? Also where would we meet in London to all hop on the bus and what time? Will we be in touch after I book with email? P.S. is there. Significant amount of free time?

      The accommodation and transportation (coach bus) within the tour is indeed included. You also have some meals included.

      If you check here http://www.tourradar.com/t/1063#details you can see the day by day itinerary and what meals are included per day. It will also give you an idea of the free time you have. With Contiki Free time is valued and you can use it to do your own thing or to do ones of the amazing optional activities your tour leader will suggest.

      Under http://www.tourradar.com/t/1063#included you can check all the additional activities included.

    • If you're travelling with a partner, do you get your own room or do you have to share with others?

      This is a hotel tour by Contiki which means if you're travelling as a couple you will have a twin room to yourselves.

    • Does the tour price include accommodation and transportation?

      The accommodation and transportation (coach bus) within the tour is indeed included.

    • What is the difference between this tour and the European Quest?

      The main differences between the two tours would be the accommodation types used and how in-depth the tours get within each country. The European Quest uses multi-shared accommodation, but visits much more destinations in each country where as the Winter Wanderer uses hotel stays, but visits fewer destinations in each country.

    • How many people travel on this tour?

      Contiki coaches can carry up to 53 passengers, however normally groups are slightly less than this.

    • Can I do this tour if I'm over 35 years old?

      Sorry, Contiki is a budget tour operator offering tours for 18-35 year olds only, with no exceptions able to be made. Please have a look on the Tourradar website to see similar Europe itineraries for all ages.

    • Is this tour suitable for a family travelling with a minor?

      This trip is run by a company called Contiki and they create trip itineraries designed for younger travellers (18-39yrs old). They can be more fast-paced, budget-minded, and includes activities for travellers to meet and have fun with other young passengers from all parts of the world! Their brand is designed around this unique experience geared toward younger travellers, so only passengers 18 - 39 can travel on this tour.
