Susie is an amazing trio manager who run the extra mile to make sure that we have the best possible experience. The transportation was great as well, we were lucky to have Pat as driver !!

    Freakin loved this trip! absolutely amazing. I actually never heard of Contiki before. Didn't realize it was actually an age restriction from 18-35 year olds. So that was a nice surprise as that just kept things more active with a younger group like that. I only got a few years left in me to stay in this range... :( But sky diving for the first time, and rafting down the worlds tallest commercial waterfall of 22 feet was amazing! Chels did an amazing job on everything. super positive, lots of energy and has a kind heart.

    Such an amazing experience. I met so many new friends and had so many fun adventures. Saul and Weeman were awesome and great at keeping everyone happy. Definitely budget for the MeTime experiences. There is not a lot to do when you don’t do them but sometimes there’s hikes in the area. Rafting and skydiving were my favourites!

    I have had the best experience and would definitely reccomend it to anyone. Susie was dedicated and worked hard. She gave as much detail as possible and always worked her hardest to accomodate for everyone. She was one of the reasons i decided to stay on my contiki trip longer and was able to give me the advice i needed while in new zealand. Contiki overall provided a great experience and covered all the places that i wanted to go and was able to provide a competitive price.

    The website is so easy to use, and with a large number of tours to choose from and great 24/7 backup via phone and online chat, I wouldn't book my trips anywhere else. I also love earning credits towards future tours with each booking. Highly recommended.
