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’ll be doing europe in July/August – I’ve booked the spanish spree and greek island hopping tour, I’m hoping to chase the sun and hit up France and Greece, Spain. All depends on what you’re looking to do. Tomorrowland? Might bump in to you!

    Haiii, I’ve been looking at Euro trips again and I think I’m going to go with European Experience either the 27th July or the 30th July. Anyone going?

    Hi Everyone!

    I’m looking to go on the European Panorama or European Experience late June – mid July this year. Unfortunately, none of my friends can go – so looking to go solo. Anyone else thinking of going then? :)

    Hi Mila, I’m doing European Escapade 29th of May 2014 until 22nd June 2014, I will be staying in London from the 25th of May until the tour starts :) I’m also going solo, I’m from Newcastle NSW Australia.

  • 3 Jan 2014 Mila said


    Hi Jordan, No one who’s posting seems to be travelling on the ones that I’m thinking of around that time. Argh! Hope you have fun – that’s such a great time to travel too :)

  • 3 Jan 2014 JordanScott said


    Yep my tour isnt even a guaranteed departure which makes me nervous, but my travel agent told me most people save their money and make full payment at the last minute and then the tour is full. So lets hope so. What ever you choose I’m sure you will have a great time too. This will be my first Contiki and first time to Europe, so I’m very excited. I’ve recently returned from Vanuatu and caught the bug lol

  • 3 Jan 2014 Mila said


    Oh that’s very annoying that it’s not guaranteed. Does that mean the date isn’t guaranteed or the tour in whole? I’ve been to England but not around Europe so very excited as well. Hope you have loads of fun! Make sure you don’t catch a bug on it though haha. Hope you feel better!

  • 3 Jan 2014 JordanScott said


    No I think its the particular departure date I chose thats not guarenteed but my agent said that its quiet the norm, I was just an early booker to save a few dollars. Others book at the last minute after they have been saving for it :)

    I will be doing the “Amsterdam to Barcelona” tour from August 22nd to Sept 1st. Travelling alone for the first time and never have done a Contiki tour. Kinda scary but looking forward to meeting some awesome people!

  • 4 Jan 2014 Holly said


    Hey Mila, what dates in June were you leaning towards? I’m going on the European Experience towards the end of June :) Starts on the 27th :)

  • 4 Jan 2014 Mila said


    Hi Holly, if I go on the experience it’ll probably be June 25 as the 27th isn’t a definite departure. Ahhh…!

    Hey, I’m planning on doing the European Experience Tour at the end of June. Wondered if anyone else was doing the same?:)

  • 4 Jan 2014 Mila said


    Hi Katie! I’m planning on doing the 25th at this stage, but tossing and turning whether to do Panorama instead :) when are you thinking of going at the end of June?

  • 4 Jan 2014 Katie Green said

    Katie Green

    Hi Mila! When I look at the availability, i’m thinking about the 23rd, 25th, or 27th:) Yeah I keep changing my mind! At first I was just looking to go on a smaller tour for like a week or 2 and now i’m looking at the month ones:P Are you travelling alone?

  • 4 Jan 2014 Mila said


    Yeah I was looking at the smaller ones so I can explore Spain and Greece more. I still wanna get a taste of both so Panorama is looking good, but the Experience + Greek Island Hopping looks interesting :) yeah! I’ll be travelling alone – what about you?
