VIXEN: So what can you expect on a Contiki trip?
GF: Travelers have the safety of a group atmosphere and the opportunity to make friends for a lifetime. There is an experienced Tour Manager and Driver team making sure you get Backstage Pass access to sights you want to see. Not only are you traveling and learning about the culture, Contiki provides you with a story and an experience that you take away with you. You can customize your experience any way you want—whether you take advantage of the optional excursions such as bungy jumping or whitewater rafting, or you take some ‘Me Time’ and explore a city on your own.
VIXEN: So what’s the best way to determine if a place is a great destination for you?
GF: Destinations should tie into your interests but also be an opportunity to take advantage of the time you have. If you enjoy thrilling adventures, then Queenstown In New Zealand may be a better fit than a historical trip through Eastern Europe. If you love food and culture, Italy might be the best fit. However, if you’re open-minded and willing to learn about another culture, than any destination will suit you. Following your sensibilities and your interests is usually the best guiding factor for determining where to go.
