He went above and beyond to make sure we all had a great time and were given enough information to make sure we could get the most out of our trip.

    4.0 - Good

    I wasn't expecting to much when I took a tour with Contiki. My expectations were to enjoy my time off and meet new people and see new places. The tour was GREAT. There are things to see, options of entertainment, exposure to different cultures and new experiences I'll never forget. My advice for anyone considering the Eastern Trail is to have an open mind, be a little out going and have incinsentive to try new things and you'll have more fun then you ever expected.

    Trent made the trip incredibly fun and insightful. There was not a moment in which we weren't either learning something interesting or having a great time at an awesome venue. I genuinely think Trent added a ton of value to the enjoyment I had on my contiki.

    Trent was the best guide ever! He was very knowledgable about all the cities we visited and went above and beyond to ensure we got the best experience out of every destination!

    The trip was more than I could of ever expected. Trent made myself and everyone else on the tour feel so safe but got us out of our comfort zones (in a good way) at the same time so we wouldn't go home with any regrets. Trent is the best tour guide I have had and I would request him for my next trip if I could!

    I loved every bit of it. It's nice to go to a city, with a experienced tour manager, who knows where things are, a bit of history, a few locals and really anything you need. I love meeting new people, so I loved the group part of it. I like how contiki gives you choice of what you want to of. You can do the contiki activities or have free time in the city. I would recommend!
