    hey im not doing that tour but i would suggest doing the new york uncovered =) do your 26day tour book 2 days post tour at the same hotel ( at the cheap rate) to rest and wash clothes and book the 3/4 day new york uncovered it gives you a 7 day metro pass that you can use before the newyork tour starts =) and maybe book a extra night after that one finishes, thats what im doing in aug 2014 but im doing the ny uncovered than the grand northern =) happy travels

    Hi Alana, Awesome! Are you going on these dates? Very excited, is this your first time in America?

    Hey Bronn, Yeah I was thinking maybe doing a small NY contiki tour just so I get to see everything there :) Thanks for the idea! :)

    Yeah, I’m going on those dates :-) This will be my first time to America! When do you get to LA?

    Yay how exciting :) I haven’t booked my flights over yet, trying to decide when to go, thinking about 4 or 5 days before the Contiki starts. What about yourself?

  • 25 Jun 2013 Alana said

    Alana

    Yeah I’m still trying to decide as well! I was thinking the same, about 4-5 days in LA and at the end in NY :)

    Yeah that should be enough time in each :) Awesome, well I will keep in contact with you! :)

    i would suggest not to do the la explorer as your accomidation is in down town la and there is nothing really there, theres some dodgy markets with chickens running around, the sort of place where you dont really want to leave your room. Down Town la is 15 minutes by car ( with no traffic) and there’s no real easy transport to ‘Hollywood’/ shopping so it would be a expense to get to see everything

    Excellent, keep me posted on what date you’re getting to LA! We can organise to meet before the tour starts :-)

    Yeah for LA I’m planning on staying at a backpackers right in LA between Sunset Boulevard and some other street (real central anyway) & hopefully do things that way :) Yeah I will let you know when I find out my dates, eee so exciting :)

    Hey! I am booking this tour in the next couple of days! I am also travelling solo and would definitely be keen to meet up in LA before the tour! I’m thinking of arriving around the same as you guys 4-5 days before the tour starts! So excited already!

    Hi :-)
    My boyfriend and I booked this tour yesterday! So Excited!!
    We are doing an 8 month trip, USA, Canada, Mexico, Europe and the UK.

    I’m thinking of making a fb group for the tour. We had one for our tour in europe and it was really good to chat to people before the tour and easy to make some plans to meet up!

    Hey Lee-Anne, Nice 8 months! Sounds amazing! :)
    That would be cool, saves having to log into here all the time & make plans :)
