He didn't play favorites and he made sure to try and have everyone in on the good time. He tailored the trip to most people's needs.

    Greg was a great tour guide! He has a genuine passion for what he does. I had Greg as a tour guide when i did the 'Quest to Rome' trip with Contiki, Greg was always down for a good time and always provided great insights into each city we visited. Along with Joao he made sure we arrived in each city safely and on time and had a great time while we were there.

    I have nothing but positive things to say about the contiki trip! Our tour guide Greg was absolutely amazing! I've been on several tours with other companies and Greg was by far the best tour guide I've ever had! He engages with everyone each day, making sure you don't have any unanswered questions, he's very helpful. Everything you need in a tour guide! Keep up the great work mate!

    Our tour guide, Greg, was an absolute gem. He always made sure to try and get to know each person who was on the tour. He didn't play favorites and he made sure to try and have everyone in on the good time. He tailored the trip to most people's needs. He would make sure to give us history, sightseeing, food (and gelato), and general tips for each stop on our adventure. He is a funny guy who loves having a good time. Somehow he has the most energy after an entirely too long night out, and wakes up and makes sure the things that need to get done in the morning get done. That is a special kind of quality and Greg really has the magnitude it takes to be an excellent tour manager (I've had several before this trip). I would absolutely recommend Greg to anyone going on a Contiki trip, and wouldn't hesitate booking another myself. Great guy, amazing tour manager.

    Greg was the best guide I could ever ask for! He was knowledgeable, hilarious, caring and all the right kinds of crazy to put up with a bus of young adults for 16 days without going insane. He always did his best to accomodate everyone's requests and make them feel welcome and part of our contiki family #keepthepandaalive #euquest2016
