Do you have a hard time convincing your friends
to explore the world with you? Or maybe you are
just looking for a new way to explore the planet.
Perhaps it is time for you to experience
a Contiki Tour.
is a Contiki tour?
The word ‘Contiki’ comes from the
‘con’ in continental and
‘tiki’ comes from Maori,
meaning ‘friend’. In other words,
a Contiki Tour refers to traveling all over the
world with friends.
is it for?
Any internationally minded traveler between the
ages of 18 and 35.
was Contiki from?
Contiki originated in 1961, by a young New Zealander
wanting to travel around Europe in a rental car
with companions. Since then, the word ‘Contiki’
has stood for fun, exploration and companionship.
can you expect from a Contiki Tour?
A bus load of adventurers from different countries,
cultures, customs and backgrounds. In fact one
of the most exciting parts of the trip is meeting
so many people and sharing a wonderful adventure
Even if you are not thrilled about traveling by
bus, Contiki Tours usually involve a very comfortable
bus, tonnes of games, movies and lots of other
on-board entertainment. The ‘official’
language of Contiki tours is English so you don’t
have to worry about communication problems; sounds
all too easy and a heck of a lot of fun!!
is the schedule like?
Tour schedules are very exciting and begin early
in the morning and continue on into the night.
In the day, you’ll have a chance to see
many historic and interesting places. At night,
the party continues as the tour winds up at various
clubs and bars. So, if you like the fast lane
then this is the tour for you.
Novelty buffs and thrill seekers alike will be
kept stimulated with bungee jumping, rafting,
wine tasting and a whole host of other exciting
activities that make Contiki tours less of a holiday
and more of an action packed adventure.
out this letter from a very satisfied tour member:
“This was my first trip to Europe, I was
a little bit worried about going on a tour by
myself but after only a couple of hours on the
bus I realized I had made a great choice to entrust
my holiday to Contiki. My newfound friends were
very nice and we all had an incredible time together.
The best places we visited were Holland, Germany,
Switzerland and France. It was just like in a
movie and I felt like crying with happiness. Although
the sights, smells and sounds were wonderful,
the best part of the journey was traveling with
these fantastic people. Every night, we drank,
talked, danced and laughed ourselves silly. Every
time I think back on my experience I get a little
teary-eyed. On the last day of the trip we all
cried and promised to stay in touch and hopefully
see each other again. Now I have great friends
all over the world writing me emails everyday.
Since the trip, I feel my life has changed. I
feel more confident, more active and I don’t
give up anything easily anymore. I learnt so much
from my travels and I think I grew up a lot. I
can’t believe how happy I am now.
I can’t recommend Contiki Tours highly enough.
