She is so self-motivated to be the absolute best tour guide each and every day, and it comes across so clearly. She puts maximum effort into everything from our hand-drawn itinerary sheets to her knowledge of the cities to making sure everyone in need of a hug gets one. I cannot recommend her more highly!!!!

    I was blown away by Kassie. Touring Europe made me somewhat nervous, but everywhere we went, she made me feel comfortable and connected to the City. She always provided us with lots of information and stories and always kept it interesting. The amount of work that trip managers have to do is immense and difficult, but she made it look so fun and easy. Definitely a cut above the rest. Wish I had her for every trip I go on from now on.

    My husband and I went for our honeymoon on the road to Rome tour and Cassie was our guide. Any anxieties or uneasiness we had about traveling in Europe were completely melted away because of Cassie. From the very beginning, she was filled with interesting stories and information of each place we stopped at or passed by that we felt connected to our destinations. She was a constant source of energy and entertainment whether it be the daily travel song, movies, impromptu tours or bus travelling activities. She was always helpful in explaining new cities and pointing out points of interest on city maps so we could plan our day. And not just the general ones either. She always personally asked every individual if there was something we wanted to do or try and always could point us in the right direction. For us personally, she went out of her way one time. A scheduling change allowed us to go to Pompeii with our tour group but we had to find our own way back to Rome as the tour bus was heading to Greece. She figured out the train schedules for us so that we could get back to Rome easily. We appreciate the extra help she provided because Pompeii ended up being one of our favourite stops on the trip and it would not have been possible without her. Thank you Cassie for such a great trip and memorable Honeymoon :-D

    This was my second trip with Contiki and once again it exceeded my expectations. This was partly because of the amazing tour manager Areti. She worked very hard to make sure that we saw the all of the major sites in each city and got the most out of each day. This tour covered many different european cities, spending a day or two in each. Whenever we arrived in a new city Areti would outline some of the major destinations, and by the end of the tour she knew the personalities of the people in the group well enough to provide personalized recommendations (where someone would like to shop, or some hike someone would like to take). Great tour, Great tour manager... would recommend this to everyone!

    I went on the road to Rome trip with Areti and it was amazing! It was my first time traveling and my first contiki tour and it was amazing Areti put so much time and effort in to make this trip one to remember and it was absolutely unforgettable. She is a huge part of the reason why I want to travel the world now. She really helped open my eyes to so many thing that I feel I would have missed if it wasn't for her. I know there are plenty of great tour managers but she is special ! Her love for traveling is incredible and it made my trip much better. I can't wait for my next contiki trip but I don't know if I would enjoy it as much if she wasn't there ! She did suck a great job that I wouldn't want to have anyone else!

    Booking my European trip with Contiki was the best decision I've ever made. It was a life-changing experience and I got to do things I never thought I would do. The trip was even more special because of our tour guide, Areti. She took away any nerves I had at the beginning of the trip. She was very knowledgeable about the places we were traveling to and had our group participate in ice breaker activities that would allow for us to all bond and really get to know one another. Areti would even go the extra mile and stay out with us to make sure we'd all come back safe and buy us yummy treats for the bus ride. It's been a year and I wish I could do it all over again. Thank you, Areti!!

    I had a fantastic time on Contiki and will definitely recommend it to others. I found our tour manager Lasse very knowledgeable and friendly and made our trip so easy. I enjoyed the excursions and feel like I got a good taste of all the places we visited. I hadn't realised prior to this trip that Contiki did hotel tours rather than just hostel tours, it was a great option for us.

    Road to Rome was absolutely incredible. My Contiki Tour Manager was extremely knowledgeable and made my tour the perfect mix of sight seeing, history, culture and partying. I was lucky enough to share my experiences with a friendly, fun and diverse group of travellers. I would absolutely recommend this tour and my excellent tour guide to anyone who is considering travelling in Europe.
