Ewan "Greg was my guide a recent tour of Vietnam with contiki and I couldn't reccomend him highly enough! His local knowledge/ insider information really made me feel like I was having an authentic and unique experience. His enthusiasm for his job is so infectious and really made every member of my group want to come home with no regrets. Thanks Greg for making memories that will stay with me for life. "

    I had such a good time on the Vietnam Experience and would really recommend it. It smashed my expectations out of the park, we got to do so much every day and it would take me an age to list it all, but basically Contiki and Greg ensured we were treated so well! We even managed to squeeze in a trip to an abandoned water park outside of Hue that everyone was keen to see thanks to Greg! Accommodation was always in the heart of each location and transportation was always comfortable and on time. The guide Greg was the best in ensuring the show was kept on the road, he was the perfect guide mix of fun and approachability and treated everyone the same. Having done tours with other companies a good guide is priceless and Greg really is up there with the best! Thanks again!

    The Vietnam Experience tour with Greg was fantastic. Going in I was nervous about the group dynamic, as I was travelling solo, but Greg made everyone feel right at home. Greg, in my opinion, is the perfect combination or professionalism and fun. He made all of the activities so seamless and was a great resource for all things travel. I would highly recommend Contiki to a friend, and a lot of that is due to how fantastic a job Greg did this trip.
