    We couldn't have got a better tour leader! No tour will ever be as good as one with Megs at the helm. She has so much good energy. Extremely knowledgeable and really fun to be around. Count yourself lucky to be on tour with Megs!

    Megs is one of the best tour guides there are. She is very knowledgeable about wherever she is touring and is always full of energy. She made an awesome trip in 2015 to Scotland, even better with vibrancy, zeal for life, and knowledge of where we were and what we were seeing. I would gladly go on another trip with her as the tour guide and have been trying to get another scheduled with her. She is definitely one of the top two in the business from my experience.

    My first ever tour, bit nervous at the beginning until I met Trent. Felt very relaxed, safe and entertained. It was an enjoyable trip and did not want it to end. Hope whenever I decide to do another trip Trent will be my guide. Thanks Trent for a great first time:)

    The tour was absolutely not value for money. I paid to spend my trip on a bus for more than 5 hours a day and to pass by famous sites. Would not recommend this to people who would prefer to explore the countries for more than three hours. Will never use Contiki again :)

    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.
