How Contiki Got Started

In 1961, a New Zealander named John Anderson visited London. He was alone and didn't have a lot of money to visit Europe, but still wanted to have a great vacation. He made a plan to meet others to travel with. He put a deposit down to rent a minibus and found a group of other young adults to travel with. The group tours Europe for 12 weeks. The following year John Anderson decided to do the same thing and Contiki Vacations was started.
