    Greg was fantastic! Definitely felt he was a seasoned tour guide with the abundance of local knowledge through the cities we traveled through. He was a great person to have general chat to and personalised every conversation. Everyday was organised and Greg made the trip worthwhile!

    The Western Quest Tour exceeded my expectations because of Greg Colin. He was hilarious, knowledgeable, and so welcoming. He made sure he got to know everyone and that we were all comfortable. He was beyond impressive. I would love to go on another one of his tours.

    The trip was so much fun! I only did 9 days and I would´ve loved to gone for the full 25 day trip. The people were amazing, and our group literally formed a family. The guide Greg was awesome as well, he always knew answers to our questions and beyond. He was seriously the most I could´ve asked for out of a guide, and made my first Contiki trip awesome!

    My contiki trip was a trip of a life time, I had the best time, with special thanks to Greg for explaining each place we went to so well and giving tips to every single person depending on what they wanted to see. Also Greg's music playlists were top notch! Thank you Greg and Joao for making such a short trip one I will always remember!

    Ellie was the best tour guide I could've asked for. Not only was she knowledgable, but she could gauge the atmosphere of the bus and knew when it was appropriate to just take in the view or let people sleep. I met some lifelong friends on this trip and regret not going for longer.

        I was struggling to get seats on a coach tour I was trying to organise at late notice. TourRadar came to the rescue and secured the seats. Not having used them before I was impressed with their rapid response to my initial booking and my subsequent questions.
