    Hi Felicia and Angela

    So glad you’re going on this trip too! yeah it’s my first Contiki as well. I’ve been to Italy and London before so i’m so excited to see these Countries.

    Felicia, I’m from NYC too! Where in the city do you live? They say b/w 25-50 people in one tour group. Should be so much fun!

    Hey Angela

    Oh that’s so nice you’re getting extra time there! I’m just doing the tour as is. That’s cool you live so close. I’m flying out of JFK.

    The trip isn’t until may 7, that’s three months from now. I think it will be fine. More people might sign up close to the day.

    Hi Nicole

    Glad you’ll be on the trip too! It’s gonna be awesome. I’ve also always wanted to visit Australia. I looked into one of those tours too. Maybe next time! When we meet you’ll have to fill me in!

    Yeah I’m sure the trip will fill up. Probably closer to May. I’m flying out of JFK the night of the 7th.

    Hi everyone,

    When I booked this tour my travel agent (as well as the contiki brochure) told me that our tour is a guaranteed departure tour… it is guaranteed to go, no matter how many, or how few, people have booked it. that was part of the reason i decided on this date.

    Are any of you traveling further in europe after the tour? contiki is the start of my 3 month trip, so would be great if others are continuing on afterwards too.

    Hi..everyone! I haven’t booked, but my wife and I should be buying shortly. We’re from VA but flying out from NJ. Continental had some amazing deals for this trip out of Newark. We’re going to be arriving in Brussels for the day before and staying an extra day for travel to Madrid.
    Anyway, its our first Contiki tour and we’re looking forward to the adventure and meeting new people.
