Greg definetly made our holiday a trip of a lifetime and with another contiki tour planned next year, the next guide has a lot to live up too (or Greg get yourself guiding a tour around Spain and Portugal next year for round 2!). Top bloke, top guide!

    What can I say, Greg was the biggest legend that could possibly have had for my first tour. Full of knowledge of everywhere we went to and would stay out partying with the rest of us. Cheers for what probably would be the best 45 days of my life. Hope to see you in the future!

    Greg Colgin, by far the best person you could have as a tour manager on contiki. Ultimate European plus Greek Islands wouldn't of been so great without him and of course our bus driver Barry! We definently dominated our trip that's for sure. Strangers we started as, leaving as family! Every single moment good and bad was worth the ride and trip (:

    What are people saying about TourRadar?

    • Carlos4th June 2018
      Was very pleased with the ease that I was able to understand, and navigate your website. Have actually been looking at several other tour companies, some have played phone tag with me. Others have not bothered to return calls. Their websites have been difficult, to work and understand. Am super excited to be working with you. Am now working on finding affordable airfare. Thanks again. Looking forward to a wonderful adventure. Have already been giving several friends your info.
