Contiki Tour

Recommended Posts

Anyone tried Contiki before?

http://ph.contiki.com/

Wondering if such tours are worth it...Isit reali a waste of time to go Europe during winter? Thought it would b nice to spend winter in Switzerland but when i look at the available tours, abit touch & go type...Hope anyone who has been with Contiki can share ur experience !!

Wow, sounds quite fun hor?? Wifey and me always avoided tours because always got old folks (not that we don't like old people but expectations different mah, eg old folks tend to like sightseeing but we want to SHOP and have fun!) and so very sianz.

If this tour really is really for those aged 18 to 35's then want to find out more liao...

Yeah! It looks interesting rite? Cos i was surfing around for Switzerland as im very interested in Zermatt. Would reali love to spend a few days there. But looking at their tour packages & itinerary, looks abit hectic..but got F&E time also.

Looks like not much ppl noe abt this Contiki tour thing...hmmm....

I noe this sounds stupid but im only planning to go after my AD in 2009. I noe its super early but i roughly need to noe the costs. And heard dat if pay up 6mths before the trip, will have discounts. At first tinking of gg Taipei instead but after doing some calculations, may b able to afford Europe afterall. And i hope to go while im still young & no kids :dancingqueen:

I realise there is actually quite abit of free & easy. Which is wat i wan...I worry abt gg F&E totally in a foreign land so it would be good to have ppl to guide us at some point as well. Now go promo on the Europe tour..tink abt SGD3K+ for one pax inclusive of airfare, accomodation, certain meals & the tour itself...

Ahhh...anyone else gone for this before??

i thought contiki was more for singles looking to hook up? kinda like a matchmaking tour...

Oops...this is the kind of trip that a married person would go and tell his/her spouse that s/he is on business trip...

Double oops... :):~:(

I went skiing for my honeymoon, but only 1 day haha. Very tiring.... so depends on what kind of hol you want.

BTW, have you tried looking at INSIGHTS tour? Those are more detailed Europe tours and I heard early booking confirm got discount one.

:yamseng: If can afford to go Europe for 18 days, who don't want... :unsure:

If you got time, just drop by travel agencies to pick up the Insight Vacation booklets. I believe SA and Dynasty have those. Or if you more adventurous, can take a short package tour, then roam ard yourself. See more things at a leisurely pace :bangwall:

I went on contiki tour after completing my studies in UK many yrs bk.

It's a fun tour for yuppies ranging from normal lodging to 3-star accom.

Of course u can also choose higher class of accom too, juz pay $$ :sport-smiley-004:

Some meal r included, while some aren't.. make sure u check w/ the guide.

One thing to note is the tour travels by land & sea, hence most of yr time r on the road or in the coach.. same as all tours limited attractions time spent at each sites. Some times the driver & the guide will add an extras attraction pt, depending on schedules. oh, last but not least u'll need to tip them as well oh.. Hope this helps :sport-smiley-004:
