    Ok tour but worst tour guide I've had, I've been on 3 other contikis and they were amazing this one was such a let down. On the positive our bus driver was awesome

    I joined this tour not really knowing what to expect, but can honestly say that I had an amazing time and met some amazing people! I travelled alone but everyone in the group made me felt welcome from the start and we had a great deal of fun on the trip and went to some awesome places that I would have otherwise never have visited. The only thing I wasn't expecting was to join a tour halfway through (most of the group had already been touring for 6 days already when me and 3 others joined in Las Vegas), this wasn't too much of an issue, but meant everyone else in the group had already met, although our tour manager, Dylan made sure the ice was broken and everyone got to know each other: It would appear that this is common place for tours to be broken into 'modules' and for people to start and finish their trips at different points across the tour, but I was not aware of this and it kind of took me by surprise on my first day. That aside, I really cannot fault this trip, our tour manager Dylan and driver Adrian, were exceptional and very friendly and informative and went out of their way to ensure everything went smoothly and that we were shown the best parts of the locations we were visiting. The locations chosen on this tour were a good mixture of city and scenic , and it was nice to break up the trip with a trip to the mountains (Lake Tahoe) for some winter fun (skiing and snowmobiling - both of which I highly recommend, I was new to both but thoroughly enjoyed them!) and the scenery is truly breathtaking - so make sure you bring a camera! Also, make sure if you want to visit Alcatraz on day 6 whilst in San Francisco (which you definitely should as it's great!), then pre-book your tickets before you fly out (for the 9am ferry) as I was the only one who did and everyone else missed out as they had all sold out. San Francisco was by far my favourite city and I'm looking forward to visiting again in the future. Accommodation for the trip was of a very good standard (twin shared hotel rooms) and the food provided was of a good standard, albeit from a limited, pre-defined menu, however I cannot really fault either for the price paid. All in all, I had a great time and for my first Contiki trip, was very impressed and would most definitely recommend this tour, California is an amazing state and if you only have a limited time then this is the perfect tour to see a lot in a short space of time - I'm already looking at where I can go to next! If you're looking at this trip, debating whether or not to go then as a popular clothing brand says... JUST DO IT!... You won't regret it.
