    Traveling leaves you speechless and turns you into a story teller. Thats what it seemed to me. It was an amazing trip which was perfectly organised by this kiwi dude Nihar Vasa. I met so many fantastic people on this trip who were outstanding. I chose to go in winter cuz i love winter landscapes and a chance to have a sip of hot muddle wine! Being in a beautiful place or experiencing something “once in a lifetime” is also a great catalyst for some deep thinking. For my indian fellows, the only thing I wanna say "Zindagi na milegi doobara mere dost"

    Nihar is an awesome tour guide. I learned so many new things about the places we visited on our 12 day tour. He was very helpful and the trip would have been terrible without him and his positive energy!

    Nihar was such a fantastic tour manager. ALWAYS accommodating and never broke a sweat when the unexpected happened. Gave us a lot of interesting info about all the places we saw; including his awesomely terrible dad jokes...lol! I couldn't have asked for or expected anyone better. Along with my tour mates he truly helped make this the tour of a lifetime. Go Contiki!

    Our experience was one of a kind. Thanks to Nihar we were able to see Europe's most amazing places in a short amount of time. His personality and knowledge was one of the thing we will miss the most. Thanks again! (Puerto Rico)
