Contiki Asian Adventure! From overnight stays on jungle rafts in Thailand to quad bike riding at sunset in Cambodia this tour was by far the best I have been on. My favourite part of the trip was exploring Laos especially in Luang Prabang. Contiki made it so easy to get around stress free yet still allowed me my own free time to do whatever I wanted to!
There're two trips that would tie for first place. One to East Africa (Kenya/Tanzania) for the wonderful interaction with both humans and animals in the world's most iconic parks, the Serengeti, Masai Mara and Ngorongoro Crater. The other was in Myanmar which had more breathtaking places than any other Asian country.
Absolute Turkey with G Adventures. The Europe/Asian crossover melting pot of Istanbul, amazing rock formations of Cappadocia, underground towns, Mediterranean beaches, an overnight boat trip, ancient cities, hot springs flowing over white terraces and finish off with Gallipoli - tick, tick, tick off a wide variety of experiences in just two weeks!
Antarctica! It was the most adventurous tour I've ever done, & it was also the most spectacular. There's nowhere else where you can be that is as remote and isolated. I even had to supply my blood type, it was that off the beaten track. The experience of being on board the G expedition was outstanding, their service & staff are second to none.
The Contiki Ecuador & Galapagos Island Hopper - it has it all! You go from crystal blue waters to adrenaline junky Banos to the Amazon jungle! The wildlife in the Galapagos Islands is like nothing you will ever experience, and the snorkelling is hands down some of the best in the world. Then back on land you've got rainforests and the Amazon Jungle!
G Adventures Mayan Sun - Starts in Cancun and travels down through Belize and into Guatemala. I’ll then jet over to Cuba for the Cuban Rhythms tour which tours some of Cubas best spots. The countries I’m visiting are more difficult to travel between, so choosing a tour was the easiest way to see everything, also I know I will be safe and in good hands.
Winter Wanderer – Contiki, travelling Europe at that time of year is so amazing. It’s much less crowded and really great value.
East Africa Safari – Contiki, Africa is high on my bucket list and I know I will feel extremely safe with a tour group. I can’t wait to see the incredible landscape and with an organised group I’ll get to do things may be difficult to do on my own and/or hard to get to.
Busabout - Greek Island Flexi Hopper. Greece is absolutely picture perfect and I just loved the flexibility of the Busabout Greek Island Flexi Hopper! I could choose how long I wanted to spend on each island without missing out on the group tour experience.
