    The trip exceeded my expectations ten fold, largely due to Anne-Elyse our trip manager. AE was a fun, bubbly trip mananger who you could share jokes and banter with and made everything brilliant. This was also made possible by our bus driver Barry. Her knowledge of everywhere we went was very insightful. Contiki as a whole made my trip to Europe something I'll treasure for the rest of my life. I would recommend it to anyone, and if I could, for my next contiki I would choose AE everytime. xo

    My contiki experience was incredible and it's all because of analyse. We had a high paced and extreamly intense contiki and she was the one who kept us motivated and excited for all the adventures we were about to embark on.

    Best trip, Anne-Elise was the best tour guide I could've asked for. She was knowledgable, caring, and honestly is the reason I made the most out of my time on contiki! If I was to do contiki again I would hope for her as a tour leader every time.

    Both Romeo and Tiago (Tour Manager and Tour Driver) were perfect. Could not have had a better experience with them. The excursions offered were very ideal and enjoyable. The accommodations got better as the trip went on. First night in Amsterdam was by far the worst accommodations with several people on the trip dealing with bed bugs. Thankfully that was not one of us and we found the accommodations to be decent for the price. The breakfasts could have been better as we had 30min to eat, most of which was spent in a line or waiting for food to be refilled. Overall a great trip and great experience.

    Fun, informative, helpful and approachable. I did a 7 day 7 countries Europe tour in 2015 and it was one of the best trips I've done and Tammy definitely helped it be that. I'd recommend going with Tammy and would go again :)

    Most amazing experience of my life! Sian taught me so much about every place we visited. I was not expecting to learn so much. Sian made sure everything was taken care of. We all got to relax, enjoy ourselves and take everything in. Highly recommend Sian and would travel with her again in a minute!!

    Sian was very knowledgeable and passionate about every where we went. She also went out of her way to find out the answer to any question if she didnt know it off the top of her head. The trip was very fast paced and full on. Sian managed the trip very professionally and i would be pleased to travel with her again.
