    Hotels weren’t as close to nightlife or restaurants so as a result cabs had to be taken more than I was expecting! Ended up being a bigger portion of the transportation. Included meals could also use some work. Otherwise had an amazing trip with an amazing group and memories that will last a lifetime! So grateful that contiki organized and planned everything; traveling was definitely easier and less stressful this way!

    My contiki trip was incredible, primarily due to our tour guide Martina Musso. Her personalizations for each day sheet and map really made a difference. In every place we visited, she listed her top things to do that allowed for us to experience places we wouldn't necessarily have known about. For example, I had previously spent a couple months in Rome and didn't think there was much new to see. However, she had some interesting spots to check out on her day sheets that allowed for me to have an amazing time in Rome! Additionally, due to the busy tourist season in August, one of our hotels was changed from what was originally on the itinerary. Although the accommodations were disappointing as compared to the original plan, she always kept a positive attitude and made sure to make the experience as fun as it could be given the circumstances. Martina was an incredible TM who ran the trip amazingly while making it incredibly fun the whole time! She made the Mediterranean Escape trip an unforgettable experience that I will cherish forever!

    This trip was undeniably above and beyond our expectations. My girlfriend and I did the European Relaxation tour with Maine. We had just came from traveling Northern Europe and spent the remainder of our 10 day vacation on this Contiki. The stark difference between contiki tour vs non contiki tour was the simple fact that we didn't have to worry about all the nuances with travel logistics. And I'm not saying that we didn't have options,or that we were boxed into a predefined plan, it definitely was a wide variety of stuff that we wanted to do and stuff we would never known existed. As much as I may be able to attribute this to Contiki and their travel model, this model is only successful when you have insanely talented people like Maite. She literally blew us away every day, from start to finish. She is so well planned and fun and knowledgeable and interesting. When I tell my friends about my trip, she is a big part of the story. She knew so much about history, but also about new trends. She is educated and street smart. Case and point, the first night, we saw 5 major sites in Rome within 2 hours. Not because we didn't stop and enjoy, but because we would take narrow alleys that were short cuts through the city. Then she would break out into a history lesson. I and on the very last day, after spending all day learning about the history of Athens, we all met up in the lobby where there was a piano where she sat at and broke out this insane classical piece. She then proceeded to take us to a locals only rooftop craft cocktail bar a with one of the best views the Acropolis. Hands down one of the dopest persons I have met in life.

    Maïté was the best guide on my contiki trip through Italy and Greece last summer! So full of energy, a blast to be around, and made sure everyone on the trip was having a great time. Her recommendations were always so good, especially in Rome as she's a local. She is everything you'd want in a trip leader!
