    I had such an amazing contiki experience. Was honestly the best trip I have ever been on in my life. I learnt so much about the various countries and their history. I met the most amazing people and saw the most beautiful sights. Nihar is a fantastic guide and my trip would not have been the same without him. I have #noregrets :)

    If it wasn't for Nihar, the tour would have been very average. What a tour guide? Very well informed about the places we visited and was always keen to go to different places with us! What a champ!

    I went on the Mediterranean highlights (start Rome) with Maite and the experience couldn't be better. Having a local show us the best hidden gems, tell us historical information, and even take shots with us made the trip so enjoyable. I don't think there could have been a better tour guide. She made everyone feel like family.

    I went on a contiki tour in 2015 through Italy, France, and Spain with Maïté. The tour was a wurl wind seeing as many things as we could in three weeks. It was a good introduction to traveling. Maïté herself was fun, full of energy, inclusive to everyone, SUPER knowledgable, and a really genuine person. I recommend her as a guide!
