- CCarleeWritten on October 25, 20175.0 - ExcellentI did a two week tour through Scotland and Ireland. My tour manager, Ed, was the most knowledgeable tour guide. I felt like I truly had an understanding the othe histories of every place we visited. He had great suggestions on places to go and see. Awesome pub suggestions, if that’s your thing. I felt that I understood the do’s/donts for places so that I could stay safe. Our driver, Raf, was superior above anyone I’ve traveled with. His skills were pretty impressive lol. I really had an amazing two week experience and wish I could have stayed longer. I feel like a made tons of new friends and even though I came with a friend, I feel like I felt comfortable enough that I could have done it alone if I want to in the future! I’m truly thankful for the amazing break from life! Thank you Raf and Ed especially!Show detailed ratings
- KSKandyceWritten on October 25, 20175.0 - ExcellentScotland and Ireland...wow! Contiki really knows how to show you off! I had such an amazing trip. Ed was our phenomenal guide, and he truly went above and beyond to keep us informed about where we were and the history there. He also went out of his way to arrange group activities for us that were not apart of the inclusions or ME Time extras on the trip, like Scottish Ceilidh Dancing and bowling in Belfast! Raf was our driver, and he was a riot. Between "educating" the group on what house music in Europe was really like, to buying the whole bus Polish chocolates to eat, Raf always kept everything fun. And the man can party! Such an awesome experience for my first Contiki, and I can't wait to book my next trip!Show detailed ratings

- EErinWritten on June 23, 20164.5 - ExcellentTarryn was exceptional tour guide, very knowledgeable about every city in Scotland and Ireland we toured. Also she found my family's hometown on a map so I had some sense of where my ancestors came from. Tarryn was also fun to go out with and she had killer theme songs for our bus rides. I'd tour with her again in a heartbeat!Show detailed ratings
- NHNathanWritten on May 20, 20164.5 - ExcellentFrom the moment I met up with the tour in Scottland, Megs felt like an old friend I hadn't seen in awhile. She wasn't just the leader of the group but one of us!! She made the trip what it was, awesome and fun!! When I go on my next tour I could only hope that Megs was the tour leader, I only have the upmost respect for her and what she does. To sum Megs up in one word... Epic!!!Show detailed ratings
- JjulesWritten on May 20, 20165.0 - ExcellentMegs was a very knowledgable guide and made the trip very comfortable and fun for me. I loved seeing all the tourist sites and then the local bars at night. I still talk about the trip to people every chance I getShow detailed ratings
- GSGenevieveWritten on May 18, 20164.5 - ExcellentThe tour was amazing. Ellie was incredibly knowledgeable and her recommendations for sights/sounds/food and drinks were always a success. Her personality is ideal for this type of job. She managed to get everyone (from all walks of life) engaged in the tour. Couldn't have asked for a better trip!Show detailed ratings
- MMeganWritten on April 20, 20165.0 - ExcellentThis trip was beyond my expectations. It was the best time of my life and James was a big reason for that. He was so attentive to my sister when she had trouble getting up hills or stairs, he always made sure she was ok. He was kind, courteous, funny, and knowledgable about every place we went! His first concern was always the safety and happiness of the tour group. We loved him and am going to request him on my next contiki trip!Show detailed ratings
