Anyone planning to do Europe tour in summer 2014?

6 Jul 2013 duckeggy asked


I am from the UK but living in Aus- Queensland at the moment (I travel quite a lot). Just wondering if any Aussies or anyone from anywhere is planning to do any European tours for the summer of 2014- I'm really thinking about it, but scared that a few of my friends who have agreed to go may drop out & I'll be left myself; just wondering who might also be going for it & may be in the same position, so I know I won't be alone in that situation!

    Hey! I from Australia too! I want to do the European Panorama tour in sept or oct 2014. I’m 18 and most of my friends can’t afford it or have other commitments, so we are in the same boat ahaha. So I’m just going to go by myself! Let me know which tour your thinking about doing? It would be great to know someone before starting. :) x

    Hey! That’s so weird, we’re exactly in the same position haha! Yeah I had a look at that tour & it looks great! Add me on Facebook as itll be much easier to talk on that- & yeah like you said, it’s much more reassuring essentially; being able to get to know someone else in the same boat before the tour begins! x.

    Anyone thinking of doing the spanish spree solo in summer 2014?

  • 19 Aug 2013 Bluebear1111 said


    This discussion is amazing! Im from Melbourne in Australia :)

    im just about to embark on my first contiki to Thailand but I am looking at doing a European tour including the Greek Islands in August 2014!

    i too will most probably be flying solo and would love to stick around after the tour to take a closer look at the places I loved the most not sure yet its all still up in the air until the new tours are released :)
    Super cool to know that I most probably will not be the only one flying solo on these adventures

    Hey guys. Sorry for the late replies; add me on FB as I am more able to talk on that quicker than respond on this:

    That way it’ll be better to discuss different tours and what not – :)

    I’m planning on doing the European Trail in June of 2014

    Hey guys. I am thinking of doing a European contiki trip next year. I will be travelling solo so am quite nervous and scared ( but now it will be worth it). I am looking at doing the European contrast..

  • 25 Aug 2013 Tola_Osokoya said


    Hello guys, I’m looking to go on a trip next summer as well. Probably a trip that’s about 2 weeks or so in length since I’ve heard great things about Contiki and basically looking for feedback.

  • 26 Aug 2013 lauren96 said


    Hey everyone! I’m from Australia also, I’m planning to go on the Big Chill European Contiki, for 46 days, in May 2014. I’m planning to go with my friend, we’ll be 18/19 years old then, but not 100% what is going on with her being able to afford it and stuff… Might end up going on a shorter tour around Europe and i could be going solo, I’ll be staying in Europe for about 3 months travelling around in total, just waiting for the new dates and flights to be released! Thanks! x
