It also helped having a fellow Aussie running the tour, so she 'got it'. It was my first contiki and it was daunting to travel with complete strangers but Kassie bridges that divide with her tour.

    My Contiki trip in early summer 2013 was a memorable, exciting adventure that I recall fondly. Probably one of the best vacations ever! Our group was such an incredible bunch of kindhearted, fun-loving people and the trip could not have been better. Kassie was amazing as our tour guide and truly made the entire trip as seamless and easygoing as possible. She is such an infectious energy and is super helpful, knowledgeable and upbeat.

    I went on a European tour with Kassie and it was one of the best experiences ever. A lot of people who go on these tours are unaware of how much more enjoyable the tours are with an experience tour guide. It makes all the difference in the world - seriously. Kassie had great ideas and feedback for what to do during our free time, she is very knowledgeable about every city we visited, and she was as to connect with all regardless of age - for some like me I wasn't into all of the activites offered abd that was ok! Overall Kassie was terrific!

    This was my 2nd contiki trip. Kassie was so fun, funny, warm and informative. We could ask her anything and she came up with great tips and ideas for us to sightsee

    What not can be said about Kassie? It's hard to understand that so much awesomeness contained in such a small package! Kassie was friendly, funny, approachable and knowledgable. It also helped having a fellow Aussie running the tour, so she 'got it'. It was my first contiki and it was daunting to travel with complete strangers but Kassie bridges that divide with her tour. It's not all about getting drunk and partying, it was about enjoying your trip away, Kassie gave options along with being helpful if you wanted to know more about a location, place or activity. Her worldly experience was second to none. She looked out for everyone and made sure you were having fun. Plus, if you just wanted to go home, she was accomodating to make sure you got home safe. I can't imagine how hard it is keeping 30+ people under control and there were a few divas, but Kassie handled this with ease. I had the pleasure of travelling with Kassie for 10days in May2013, from Amsterdam to Rome. It seems like yesterday that I left but I have so many memories from that trip and she made it so much better. I would wish Kassie the very best in her next adventure and contiki are lucky to have her, keep her if you can and it would be a great loss to contiki if you let her go.

    Could not have asked for more of an enthusiastic and knowledge tour guide to have gone on our trip back in 2013. Kassie was always available and always ready to make the experience truly once-in-a-lifetime and for that I'll always greatly appreciate all that she did for us as a tour guide. There's no one better!

    Best thing I have ever done I can't wait to do another one next year :) the trip was what I expected and more had the best time. Both Megs and the bus driver made me feel comfortable and went out of there way to help me when I was sick. I highly recommend Contiki and Megs :)
