Ask your parents what travel was like in the 1970s and 80s. Actually, don’t do that. You might find out you were conceived in the back of a Contiki Kombi van.

Yes, Contiki actually used Kombi Vans back then!

Things were different back then. Today’s tourist hot spots were quieter; transportation was minimalistic, moustaches and double denim were the height of fashion – oh, what a time to be alive.

So take a step back in time to Contiki’s early days and see what travel was like without selfie sticks or GoPros, but rather with new friends and great experiences – just like today’s 21st century Contiki tours.
