    The tour was breath taking. Waking up in Greece - breath taking, exactly like the pictures you see. Dimos was an amazing travel guide. Listening to him switch between Greek and English was fascinating. Definitely a trip to experience and remember.

    I was travelling on my own and thought Contiki would be a great way to do it - I loved the tour I was on from all the cities we went to - to the company I was with. Some of the hotels weren't as nice to stay in and a little bit scary but thats honestly... Show more
