Great Britain & Ireland - 25 September 2013

19 Jun 2013 jonpas27 said


My friend and I booked this trip today and I wanted to start a thread for any fellow travelers to talk and get to know each other before our trip. I traveled solo on the Contiki Mediterranean Highlights tour back in 2010 and had an amazing time. This will be my second Contiki tour and the first for my friend.

I'd be happy to try to answer questions about traveling with Contiki if anybody has any. I have zero experience with traveling in the UK, so I won't be able to answer any questions specifically about travel in the UK.

Looking forward to meeting everybody just over 3 months from now in London!
