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..."

    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!
