Travelling with us isn’t about ticking the boxes but those eye-opening moments in time that stay with you for life.
Like you, our Tour Managers are travellers. They live and breathe Australia, so they have tons of tips to share for amazing local experiences. Get to know their favourite places to eat out, where the great shops are, how far away the next adventure buzz is, or how to find a great local bar.
They’re right there with you when you need them. And when you don’t, they’re taking care of all the gritty details - getting you checked-in to your hotels, arranging meals and sightseeing - giving you plenty of space to make it what you want.
Part of the Contiki experience is about who you travel with. Our travellers come from all over - America, Australia, New Zealand, Canada, England, South Africa, Asia – and like you they’re keen to check out the world.
We buddy up with Local Guides who bring your travels alive with extra insider knowledge.
Australia is a big place so we make sure you see the best bits. Get access to more sights, activities and free time. More amazing accommodation, more definite departures and a heap of exclusive experiences you only get with us. Look out for the Only Contiki symbol on each itinerary.
We’ve been creating eye-opening journeys around the world for decades. The time’s been spent learning, refining and improving so you get the best out of your travels.
Half the fun is how you get there. We mix up the coach ride with included ferries, cruises and 4WDs too, and it’s more and it’s more than just a way to get around – it’s a social event. Catch up with your new mates, listen to music, take in the views or curl up and chill.
More than half our travellers go alone, but you’ll never finish a Contiki without new friends. We can match you with a same-sex room-mate, or you can opt to have your own room for a little extra.
