    Nothing particularly special. It was your standard tour of Europe. I thought the tour manager, Kat, was incredibly unorganized and shared very little information with us about the places we visited. The ME time activities were overpriced and mostly not worth extra money spent. Also, I did not realize Contiki was a "party tour" before I went on it so if you do not like to drink all night, wake up hungover and go to the sights I would not recommend this tour. It's a good starter tour but I wouldn't recommend this if you are an experienced traveller or have been to Europe before.

    Exploring Europe for the first time with my partner, Megs was a friend not just a tour manager. It was the best experience of our lives and Megs personality made our tour group a mini family away from home. Her infectious smile and character has left such an impression on us even years on from our amazing European tour. She knows how to have fun and how to explore these amazing places. We can only speak highly of Megs!!

As well as this she was extremely knowledgable on all of the places that we visited on our trip and always gave us an interesting background into the places as we arrived. Would highly recommend her as a tour manager and would love to get the opportunity to travel with her again one day!

    Contiki Susie was so fantastic I would pay double to go again - the trip definitely exceeded my expectations! The entire trip Susie was a best friend, nurse, mum, councillor and one hell of a tour guide. To say it was the time of my life would be an understatement. THANKS CONTIKI
