Ilham "It was an amazing experience, that exceeded my expectations. It is a life changing, as this was my first long group tour experience that I will definitely do again. 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 !! Overall, I couldn't start 2017 in a better way..."

    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.
