This trip was highly organised, I never had to worry about any of the logistics that you have when organising your own travels. I was able to simply just lay back and relax, and enjoy the amazing sights! Global journeys were a hassle free company to book this trip through. I had no problems with them and they were always prompt to reply.

This was my third trip with Contiki across America and, again, it didn't disappoint. The Boot Scoot N Blues tour was fast paced and lively (and often tiring because it's on;y 12 days so you don't want to miss one night out!), but full of awesome sights, amazing food and optional extras which we wouldn't have ever experienced if we'd travelled alone. The accommodation was excellent and we stayed right in the middle of the cities we visited.

I wouldn't consider booking any trips with any other agent now - Hannah is super helpful and friendly, and even when I sent her numerous emails she deals with every issue and question I have in a professional manner, AND very quickly. I have booked with Global Journeys for several years now and they have had the best prices, great discounts for past travellers, and the best service I have found. 100% recommend them.

I really enjoyed every aspect of this holiday and would definitely travel with Contiki again. It was a good time of year to go, just be prepared for the cold. The tour itself was amazing and had so many inclusions.

We had a great group of people from 19-35 years old who were all there for a good time. The bus was crowded with 53 people (esp the 8 hour driving day) but we all just got on with it. It was tiring travelling every second day but we got to see more places so I guess that's the trade-off. Everyone was on time and respectful of the holiday everyone else wanted to have. The hotels were not central to the city and we heavily relied on public transport, ubers and taxis. Some people in our group were ripped off by a taxi so be careful. Overall good trip.

Contiki's Grand Northern was one of the best trips I have ever taken. The sights we saw along the way were so vast - from bright lights of the big cities to the one-road towns of the wild west. I got to see so much of the American culture and landscape and have fallen in love with parts of the country I didn't think I would ever like.
The tour was excellently organised and our Trip Manager was professional, insightful and friendly. Booking through Global Journeys was extremely easy and definitely the cheapest price I found. I have booked through them before and I have already booked my next trip through them. I would highly recommend both Contiki's Grand Northern, and Global Journeys.

Good trip. Loved the group and the tour management team. The weather wasn't very friendly. However, that didn't become a big issue. Would do it again.

The tour could have been less hectic. Found it hard to keep up sometimes. Should have been a 10-day tour rather than 8.

Tour was fantastic. Everything was properly arranged within short time. Definitely will try Global Journeys and Contiki second time. But I was not happy about the site visit selection in Switzerland. I hope they improve it next time. People go to Switzerland to see mountain and natural beauty; which they didn't include.

I thought the tour was good and the tour guide had a good knowledge of the history. However, he lacked communication skills and was not open to a lot of things. He seemed to expect everyone to know what he mentioned and didn't have respect for those who didn't understand. He also lacked professionalism.

The countries we visited and the scenery on the way (so travelling between countries) was amazing!! Experiencing Europe during winter is something I would highly recommend - thats if you can handle the cold!! Overall it was a pretty good tour, with the only down side being that I because this particular was apart of a much bigger one, it was hard to get to know some of the people and it seemed like they didn't want to make the effort as well. Also the hotels/hostel were good, sometimes we were lucky enough to be upgrade at the hotels - nothing beats a decent shower and a comfy bed!! Global Journeys were awesome in helping me book the tour, especially since I booked very late and was travelling at the time - Yvonne, you a champion and I really appreciate all your help! Between all the countries, scenery, food, beer and the excursions ( included and optional extras) I would recommend this tour ( hopefully with some nicer people!!)

This tour is a great option for anyone short of time looking to see Europe quickly. Excellent group of people to travel with. Only downside is poor hotel WiFi + substandard accommodation at times but it's not that bad for the money.

I had the absolute best experience with this trip - from booking through Global Journeys to the actual Contiki trip itself. I was assigned to Hannah from Global Journeys who made the process so easy and hassle-free. NO problem was too big for her and she was always very fast in her replies to my emails. The Grand Southern trip is absolutely phenomenal and I would recommend it to anyone. Our tour guide was brilliant - so knowledgeable, and he went to extra lengths for out group - including using his pwn personal credit card when we all wanted to go to an NFL game which wasn't on Contiki's optional activities list. Just amazing! We saw so many sights, it's amazing how different every state is from each other! The pace was fast - 7am breakfasts, bags to coach before 8am, but it was do-able, The included activities were great and the optional activities were absolutely brilliant - I did nearly all of them! Awesome value for money. Can't recommend this trip enough! #noregrets

A great overview of Spain. All the cities I wanted to visit were included in this tour, except Valencia. Some more time in San Sebastian and Seville, and less time in Madrid would make this tour even better.

I purchased this Contiki Tour at the last minute for my daughter, and I really have to thank Hannah at Global Journeys for helping with this very very efficiently and would not hesitate to make future bookings with Global Journeys. My daughter had such a fantastic time on the European Horizons Contiki Tour and has a lot of great memories and made a lot of new friends from all around the world. My daughter said it was a very fast paced tour, but as it was her first tour she loved it and now she is already planning another Contiki tour next year. Once again thank you Hannah!!
