- AAnastasiaWritten on June 16, 20174.0 - GoodWe were part of Kyle's first ever Contiki group!! We had an amazing time! He was awesome in every aspect! Whenever one of us would wonder off and get lost, he somehow managed to find us without any of the other group members realising. Very professional but also so much fun! It was the trip of my life so far, all thanks to Kyle! He brought friendship, culture and enthusiasm everyday! He always had our attention while on the bus, he taught us so much and no one was ever bored! The best trip manager without a doubt!Show detailed ratings

- EEmmaWritten on December 3, 20164.5 - ExcellentMy trip to Europe was amazing, what made it even better was getting the best tour guide ever. Kassie has a huge amount of knowledge around a variety of things that can cater for everyone's interests. She always went the extra mile and could help with anything that was needed, nothing was to hard for her! She could always have a laugh and made connections with everyone in the group.Show detailed ratings
- ECErinWritten on December 3, 20165.0 - ExcellentMy "Euro-Trip" was one of the best adventures I've had throughout my life! Kassie, my tour manager really set the atmosphere and great vibes from the very first day. Her fun personality mixed with a wealth of European history and cultural knowledge made for a trip of a lifetime. The itinerary itself was the best of the best in my opinion: the perfect length, visiting the most famous and popular cities, and staying in the hostel-type accomodation ensured every night was super social amongst the others on my tour as well as other contiki groups. I really can't fault the trip at all!! Amazing memories!Show detailed ratings
