    I had a really great time mostly because of the people on the trip. I was lucky enough to meet people who were like minded and knew how to party. The cons were the camping accomdations in Italy were not the greatest and 2/3 campsites were bedbug ridden (Florence and Rome). I had to get up at 3 am and do laundry to make sure they didn’t creep into my backpack. The contiki crew were diligent and paid for my laundry and bed bug cream and switched rooms. The included meals were good 8/10 times. Overall I had a great time and was v pleased with Dora and miki. I would recommend the trip to my friends with preparing them for the camping sites. Side note: the water pressure was great at all accomdations except Venice and whatever you budget for this trip you will end up going over lol. The FTA were decent wouldn’t recommend the cabaret show and any of the dinners, better off finding other restaurants on yelp, wine tasting was good. I personally wouldn’t do contiki again but if this your first Europe Trip, do it up .

    We saw a lot and did a lot in a short amount of time. However, accommodations were sub-par at times and the included breakfasts were typically very minimal. There were also a lot of unanticipated expenses and a lack of AC throughout most of the trip. Overall, it was a good trip.

    I did the European Highlights trip in 2016. It was so different to what I had imagined! Anne-Elyse was an amazing guide and Balazs was an incredible driver. If it wasn't for these two guys my trip would have been only half of what it was. We really were treated like family.

As a veggie, they were very accommodating, although we never really knew what we were having beforehand (it was a nice surprise I guess!). Budget a little extra for tipping and transport if you plan to go out, as you often require metro or uber/taxi to get back to the hotel/hostel. All in all a great tour to introduce myself to Europe, definitely looking to book another in the future!
