Contiki bietet ideale Touren für alle von 18-35 Jahren. Urlaub wie wir ihn mögen: "Abenteuer, Spaß & Flexibilität" sind das Motto. Weil wir eine internationale Gruppe Gleichgesinnter sind, teilen wir eine Sprache: Englisch. Daher ist es notwendig, sich wenigstens einigermaßen in Englisch zu verständigen. Wir reisen in modernen Reisebussen und wohnen in ausgesuchten Hotels und landestypischen Unterkünften. Contiki Holidays bietet unzählige Freizeitbeschäftigungen und ein volles Gruppenprogramm. Weil wir aber wissen, dass jeder auch seine eigene Freiheit braucht, bleibt viel Zeit für eigene Erkundungen, um die Dinge aus eigenem Blickwinkel zu entdecken.
HINWEIS ZUR ANREISE
Da die Abfahrt am ersten Tourtag bereits um 07:00 Uhr morgens erfolgt, ist es notwendig, dass Ihr bereits am Vortag anreist. Wir empfehlen ausserdem eine zusätzliche Übernachtung nach Tourende. Die preiswerten Contiki-Gateway Hotels reservieren wir Euch gerne und Ihr bucht das Zimme am besten gleichzeitig mit der Tour.
