Most A’s – You should be cruising the islands of Croatia

You’re the first to jump in the pool and the last to leave the dance floor and as such, an 8 day Croatian Island Cruise with Contiki is your dream getaway. Picture it now, you’re reclining in style on a gorgeous yacht contemplating whether to dive into the beautiful turquoise ocean for a swim or join your tour group for a day of exploring another gorgeous island. Either way, you’re up for partying again tonight with each town’s bars and clubs kicking off until the wee hours. You’re bound to see yet another sunrise as you wander back to the boat  where  your spacious air-conditioned twin room with private facilities offers the perfect place to recover so you can do it all again.


Most B’s – You should be exploring Greece

If you’re a lover of great history, great discussion and great food, then why not embrace all three of your great passions and put a spotlight on Greece with Contiki. On a tour you can explore the city’s historic Peloponnese region, visit the site of the very first Olympic Games and take a tour of the ancient Greek city of Ephesus.  In addition to the country’s incredible history, there’s also plenty of time to party as well with a cruise through the Greek Islands, stopping off for a drink and more at Mykonos, Crete and Santorini.



Most C’s – You should be sightseeing and shopping in London and Paris

London worked well for Monica and Chandler and it will for you too. On the London & Paris tour with Contiki you will experience the best of both cities from a group pub crawl through London to shopping in Paris. With a great amount of time spent in each, the tour also includes plenty of time for day trips to the likes of Stonehenge in England and the Palace of Versailles in Paris. The choice is yours. Whatever you do though, just remember that what happens in London doesn’t always stay in London.


Most D’s – You should get set for a crazy trip to Scandinavia

As a lover of great music and all things cute and kooky, don’t miss out on a fantastic tour of the land of fantastic music and all things cute and kooky. From Berlin to Copenhagen, Oslo, Voss, Geiranger fjord, Gjovik and Stockholm, Contiki’s tour of Scandinavia features all of the region’s famous cities and other crazy mouthfuls. Yes, this tour is set to feature lots of very cute accents and equally cute people along with the fun-filled Tivoli amusement park in Copenhagen, some spectacular views of fjords and glaciers at Geiranger fjord and a practically compulsory visit to Ikea in Stockholm. Oh and be sure to catch some amazing live music too – you’re Contiki guide is bound to know where to take you.


Most E’s – You should be eating all the foods in Italy

Contiki humbly calls their Italy tour ‘Simply Italy’ but with so many incredible places on its itinerary it could easily be called ‘super-amazing-best-time-of-your-life-Italy.’  Spanning iconic cities like Rome, Venice and Milan to quaint towns and beaches, this tour is the ultimate and stress-free way to experience ‘La Dolce Vita,’ or ‘the good life’ first hand. In addition to stunning sightseeing, the food is also the star of the tour – after all this is the land of pizza, pasta, gelato and wine. Do Joey proud.
