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?

    • Ricardo11th October 2017
      I reserved a 14 day tour of Europe and mistakenly reserved and paid for the wrong tour date. Realizing what I had done I contacted TourRadar and they rectified the situation rapidly and efficiently. A refund was issued for the monies not used and I am so far a very satisfied customer. I hope that the actual tour will go as nicely, and I will be very happy.
