Elena "I went on the Mediterranean highlights tour with Maite. I was extremely impressed at Maite's ability to relate to all types and groups of people. She was always inviting and made sure no one felt left out. She made a conscious effort every day to talk to everyone in the bus and it felt very genuine.

    Contiki has such an established presence and a wide bandwidth of experience as a tour group that I truly felt like a VIP traveler. Martina Musso, our Trip Manager, was simultaneously our logistics guide, a refreshing and inspirational presence, an unending collection of European knowledge, and a source of encouragement and comfort in unfamiliar places. Martina's joie de vivre is contagious and unites strangers from across the planet and sets them on their way to learning about themselves and the world. My tour of the Mediterranean could not have been as awesome and inspiring without Martina; I have no doubt.

    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!
