    I booked this trip with 3 weeks to go before it started I had done little to no research and went on a very spontaneous trip with no expectations or ideas of what to expect. When I arrived at the hotel where I met the rest of the group and leader (Trys) (as I joined after the tour had already started) I felt comfortable and it put me at ease after travelling half way around the world on my own for the first time. even though I had no expectations for the trip everything I experienced far exceeded anything I could have expected. i decided on a skydive just the night before and I have Trys to thank for talking me in to that as I know without his assurance I probably would have backed out. I experienced some amazing moments when I couldn't quite believe I was there doing what I was doing at those moments. I met some amazing people and made some friends for life even though they are based all around the world. The only thing I would have changed is to make the trip longer I didn't want to leave and sure have thought about returning on many occasions. I can't however imagine doing the trip without the same people (friends and tour guide) and I have them all to thank for such an amazing life experience.

    My tour guide was TK ! (Trys) he was beyond awesome! :) he made the contiki trip for me so much fun! He always made us laugh, keeping us entertained on the bus with funny games movies, songs, extra sight seeing whenever he could fit it in! Buying as a special treat from the bakery, and scoring us a free drink nearly everywhere we went! All the small things make the big things, he was always full of knowledge and told us great history stories. Very nice and very very organised! I was lucky to spend the last of his tours with him! And it defiantly opened my eyes to doing more and traveling more! #NOREGRETS :)

    I had the best time ever in this tour and didn't want it to end. I made some amazing life long friends and saw some incredible places. Still can't believe I did it. Extremely good value for money. Tour manager Trys Eddy was fabulous he made the trip what it was with his enthusiasm and personality a real credit to contiki.

    Trip was amazing. Stopped off at loads of places and our tour guide was very knowledgeable and helpful all the way.Anything that needed changing or if we wanted to do something different he would accommodate us.Trip lasted for 14nights which meant in that distance there were days where we were driving all day.however the coach was very comfortable and up to date and it never felt we really travelled that far! Would do a contiki again.

    We did the big walkabout tour. Loved every minute. The second leg of our tour from cairns to sydney was unreal. Our tour guide Trys was exciting, knowledgeable and with so much experience he was able to tell us the hot spots in town and fun facts about each of our destinations.

    I did the Beaches and Reefs Tour in August 2014 and had the best two weeks I could've ever imagined! I met so many new people from all over the world and made so many new friends that I still keep in touch with and talk to whenever I can! Since then I recommended Contiki as a travel agency to all my friends and I would love to do more Contiki Tours in the future!
