Hi Guys,

I'm about to finish my tertiary studies (hopefully forever) and I haven't been overseas in 5 years. I've previously done 2 contikis (a European explorer and a western highlights in North America).

Im interested in going to Hawaii to see the Volcanos, do some scuba, drinking etc... I was wondering if anyone has done the Hawaii Contiki? Theres a 3 or 5 day tour, though it just looks like accomodation on the website with no daily itinerary.

Ill be travelling solo this time.

My questions are...

Has anyone done the 3 or 5 day tour before? Was it worth it or would it have been better to organise something that wasnt a contiki?

Is it worthwhile going to Hawaii alone?

Do you have a group or something when on one of these? Im concerned about getting there and spending 2 weeks like the guy from castaway....

What is the conitki accomodation like?

Im guessing that there are daily activities that you sign up for everyday?

Is Hawaii more of a retiree holiday destination? Would I be better off going to Vegas/Europe to party?

I'd be going in June/July... Anyone know what the weather would be like?

Thanks in advance,
