    I have booked and paid for my spot on the tour aswell, I am flying from Sydney on the 7th of April to spend time with family in Indiana then flying from there to LA on the 13th April, I’ll be staying at the same hotel in LA the night before the tour starts and staying at the same hotel in NY for one more night before flying back.
    I am travelling alone aswell on my first contiki tour – so nervous but so excited. :D

    Roy, I’ll be in LA from the 9th, and hoping to catch a baseball game. The website for Staples Centre (which is right next to our hotel) suggests there’s a couple of games there during our stay, one on the night before the tour starts and I think the other game was the Tuesday

    My Husband and I have booked this Tour. Very excited! We are from Central Qld and will be leaving Brisbane 10:15am on the 13th April! We are staying at the same Hotel as the Tour is for the Sunday night!

    Have you planned anything in advance?
    We are looking to book a Basketball game soon then maybe another in New York as well as a Baseball game there too….

    Hey All

    Am doing this tour in April 2015. It’s my first time overseas and am travelling solo. Any tips/tricks to make the most of the tour?? Am an Aussie, flying in day before tour starts and going home the same day as the tour ends unfortunately (bloody work!)
