Natasha "My first Contiki trip was when I was freshly 18 (literally only turned 18 the weekend before my trip) and it was my first time travelling on my own. I chose the European Adventurer, which at the time was the longest tour of Europe (37 days), and Kassie Jones was our tour guide. Kassie was an absolutely amazing guide, she was friendly with everyone, always helpful and had to deal with our questions..."

    I went on a 45 day contiki of Europe with Barry as the bus driver and Greg as our tour guide. Both guys were really fantastic and made the whole trip so memorable. Greg was especially great with his down to earth nature and expert knowledge of the places we went to. He was also so much fun as well as making sure we were always on time and never missed anything

    My first Contiki trip was when I was freshly 18 (literally only turned 18 the weekend before my trip) and it was my first time travelling on my own. I chose the European Adventurer, which at the time was the longest tour of Europe (37 days), and Kassie Jones was our tour guide. Kassie was an absolutely amazing guide, she was friendly with everyone, always helpful and had to deal with our questions, whinges, and drunkeness! She knew so much about all the places we visited and I learnt so much about the various countries and it was a great first introduction to Europe. We found out at the end of our tour that it was in fact Kassie's first tour as a Contiki Guide and we couldn't believe it! We honestly thought she had been doing it for a while she was just that natural at it. I couldn't recommend Kassie or Contiki enough to my friends back home and the friends I made on the tour are still really great friends now and it's been 5 years since we went on that European tour!

    She is as good a guide as she is a wonderful human being. Rach is full of knowledge and fun facts and at the same time cares about her travelers more than she needs to. She is amazing to travel with and I'd recommend her to anyone!
