    Hi. I did this tour last September. Also had 2 nights before. I was roomed with a guy from my tour which was fine.
    I had created a face book group for the tour and about 30 people from it signed up before we left. I had actually arranged to meet the this guy and 2 of the girls the day before the tour to see NYC together.
    Who you are roomed with depends on how many others have booked in for 2 nights before the tour. A lot of people do travel by them selves on these tours too.
    You could create a group and post the link in the North American Meeting place- Grand Northern with the date you are doing the tour and see who responds
    Hope that helps

    You’ll be fine. Remember they are probably in the exactly the same situation as you..and are probably thinking the same thing!

    Also, I am about to book onto this tour as well! Although, I wont be going solo. But can’t wait!
