    This tour was the best experience of my life. I ticked off so many of my bucket list activities, many of which were included in the tour price! Our group with Trys Eddy was so much fun we all became good friends instantly. Trys was super organised and great fun to be around, the tour wouldn't have been the same without him. I'd definitely do a contiki tour again.

    This trip exceeded my expectations- everything was done near perfectly. Our guide, Trys, had a huge array of knowledge and wisdoms which answered practically every question we could drum up! He also made sure we were entertained during the longer journeys with group games and quizzes etc which were great for bonding with the other tour members. Somehow he even managed to learn our names within a few days...all 50 of us! Overall he really pulled the group close together which caused a very special bond to form. Our driver, Gary, also managed to remember all 50 of our names and always had a smile on his face! He was a very safe driver and ensured that himself and the rest of us got a break on the longer journeys...even though the Contiki bus was very comfortable. The bus A/C also deserves some recognition!

        Very knowledgeable and quick to respond.The prices were good and consistent so once we found the tour we wanted we didn't have to shop the net to see if the price was the best since this was the best price out there. We will definitely recommend TourRadar and will use them again.
