    Hey Aymeh,

    I was hoping to do the LA start on the 18th Feb. My dates are still pending so I am really unsure of which way my tour will actually go.

    Nice to know people are interested as the same time as me.
    I am hoping to spend time in before and after the tour in LA or NY which everway my tour starts. I am so keen to find out my dates, My travel agent still hasn’t heard anything about dates for the LA to NY.
    Are you planning to spend time in NY before the tour starts?

    Well I am thinking that I will have do the NY to LA cause the dates for that tour suit me and my work the best. So I am going to be in NY for 3 days before the tour but thinking of going even early as I was going to do 3 days in Hawaii on my way home so thinking of cutting that. I will also be staying in LA for 2 days after the tour. Have you booked any Motels/ Hotels for your extra nights. I am having trouble on deciding where to stay.

    Thanks I will add you next time I am on facebook. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi guys

    im looking at doing the Grand Southern in december 2011. Just wondering if you know where you are staying in Orlando, Miami and Washington. I have heard a few bad things about the accomodation and that its 5 bus rides to get from the hotel to south beach in miami.

    I;ve done contiki before and the hotels have been average but who cares – you’re not there to sit in your hotel room. I was just wondering if they were really as far out as people have said?

    Hey Rhiannon,

    I sorry I have no idea about the hotel in those places. This will be my first Contiki.
