Lindsey "My trip was different to what I expected. I was very nervous before coming on the trip as, being 30, I was worried that I wouldn't get on with the other people or get annoyed with the partying etc. I was so happy when Susie explained that everyone was there for different reasons (seeing the sights / going out etc) and they they all were ok. If made me relax and enjoy the trip as how I wanted it to..."

    The contiki in New Zealand is definitely on of the best things I've ever done, due to no small part to Susie. She was incredibly knowledgeable, funny and really made it seem like we were part of a family. Kia Ora Susie :)

    I went on my first Contiki in New Zealand and was extremely lucky to get Susie as our tour manager! She was so knowledgeable, fun and super helpful with everything. I would definitely love to have Susie as a tour manager again!!

    I had the best experience I could have imagined with Susie as my Contiki guide. She was always energetic and helpful. Susie ensured that everybody on tour was happy, comfortable and helped us resolve any problems quickly, and to the best of her ability. Her and our bus driver, Patty, were hilarious and I would 100% recommend them to my friends. I would definitely love to go on another trip with them! Fantastic.

    Exceeded expectations. Our tour guide was engaging, fun and encouraged to get involved in everything that was happening around us. The scenery was amazing - rolling green hills, snow-capped mountains and blue lakes around every corner. There was never a dull moment.

The accomodation was great for the majority and the driving & insights susie and pat gave us made me really happy I chose contiki and not to drive around myself. I had an amazing time and would definitely recommend contiki to people my age!
