When you travel with Contiki, you'll become very familiar with the Contiki day song, or the 'morning song', a Contiki tradition that has endured for decades. The song is chosen by the Tour Manager, Driver or tour cook (camping tours only) of each tour and it is played at the start of travel days while on tour and on the coach.
You'll either love it, hate it, but we guarantee you'll never forget the memories and the experience every time you hear that song - and we've compiled a small list of our favorite songs for you to add to your Contiki tour playlist as you begin packing and gearing up for your summer vacation! If you haven't booked a trip yet for the upcoming summer (it's almost May everyone!), you've still got time to take advantage of some sweet deals too!
