- 42 responses so far
im doing the winter wanderer on the 29 of jan 2011. cant wait!!!!
at this stage im going it alone and after the tour backpack round europe for a year.
a couple of my mates have done the same tour and said to was brillant and would do another contiki tour.
I’m looking at doing it either December 30th 2010 or January 5th 2011. I too only found one negative reivew but that guy sounded like a tool.
I have done contiki in the US/Canada and had a fantastic time; so I don’t have any hesitations about jumping on a contiki in Europe. I have had 4 friends do contiki europe tours (not this one but others) and they only had good thigns to say about it.
Im 18, Aus. Yeah i was thinking about doing the Winter Wanderer in March 2011, i know its ages away but works out well money making wise.
best of luck.
i’m thinking of going to this tour this march or maybe ill just wait till october.
haha I also read that negative review. I am really hoping to go In March, I think and hope it will be a good time. I just need to save, that is by far the hardest part.
I need to travel, so I guess I’ll have to stop buying sheos in favour of an awesome experience.
Maybe I’ll see some of you in a year…gosh it sounds a while away haha
Hi All! My friend and I are booking Winter Wanderer next week, pretty sure we are going with the tour that starts March 1. We also thought it would be the warmer of the cold months to go. <!--graemlin::)-->
Im planning on doing this tour in december 2010 as well just havent decided on an exact date at this point. Cant decide where i want to spend new years. Im doing it solo, nervous but so excited.
Any other solos?
What is everybody else thinking for the date or have booked?
I’m booked on the 5th Jan ‘11 trip, and doing New Years in Paris before that begins. I’m going solo. Is anyone else doing that trip?
Contiki is awesome if you are travelling by yourself. I did the USA a couple of years ago and made friends for life.
I’m doing to Winter Wanderer on the 22nd January with one of the girls I made friends with on the USA tour.
Good luck with your plans, I hope you have a great trip!
Im almost in the same boat as you!!
but im 22. haha!
I have been trying to think of a date and im thinking about going on the 30th Dec, new years in Paris. But can go earlier.
Have u made any decisions yet?
Hi Im booked March 1st 2011 Winter Wanderer, going with two other girls from Victoria. Anyone else doing this tour?
Hi, Im 18 and also going solo, Ill be in europe from early december to late february so not sure which date I’d like to go but I’m thinking probably 22nd of Jan, anyone else thinking that date too?
Sounds like a fair few people are going solo as well. It’s my first trip alone and I can’t wait, also pretty nervous about it too.
Come on the 26th!! <!--graemlin::)--> I’m booking this week, going with a mate, 2 females from melb, 23 n 24 on tour!! Where u from??
i just booked the 26th!! i was going to go on the 30th but it filled up too quick…. im going solo and turning 22 on tour (in rome i think). pretty nervous but cant wait either! <!--graemlin::)-->
Yay!! <!--graemlin::)--> it’s gonna be the best tour! U travelling before or after the tour??
im getting into london 2 days before,then following up this tour 2 week ski austria tour, and then another 5 days in london after that. and then possibly heading over to Belgium on my own to meet up with a friend. how about you??
Yeah I’m going to Ireland first for a few nights, then in london for Christmas before contiki. Afterward I’m going to poland to see auchwitz and then off to finland and an overnight cruise to Sweden.flying home to melb from there on the 28th Jan. Where u from?been to Europe before??
wow.. that quite a trip, Auchwitz is somewhere i really want to go too, but il be doing that another time. im from kingaroy,just north east of brisbane, and no i have never been to europe before. i actually have never been out of Australia before, so im pretty much diving in the deep end i guess <!--graemlin::)-->
If I go on the 26th I’d be turning 19 on the tour, which would be fun I guess, maybe i will go on the 26th instead of the 22nd.
wow matt you really are diving into the deep end, but it will be great, have you ever skied before?
What better way to spend your birthday!! I use to live in Sweden so I seen a little bit of Europe, it’s really beautiful! We can all spend Xmas day together at the royal national!!
