Travelling to Europe alone in 2014

15 Sep 2013 Grace asked


I am 21 from nsw Australia and I am looking at going on a European contiki tour in 2014, the only problem is none of my friend can afford it. I am not too keen on knowing nobody on my tour, I was looking at doing the ultimate European tour departing on the 28th of march so it would include Anzac Day in Gallipoli.

    Hey there! I am from Adelaide and will be travelling solo and wanting to do this exact tour :)

    That is a relief, I thought that the tours would be filled with people travelling in groups. How old are you?

  • 15 Sep 2013 Renee said


    I’m 19. I’m sure there will be heaps of us solo travellers on tour. I can’t wait to the brochure comes out so we can start making definite plans

    Yes, it is really exciting, but really scary at the same time

    I’m excited but I know as it gets closer and it seems more real the nerves will kick in! Are you doing Greek islands or egypt?

  • 15 Sep 2013 Grace said


    I am not sure, both look so good, but from what I have heard the Greek islands are amazing! So I don’t know weather to do them or to do Egypt and do an island tour after.

    Hi guys…. just so you know most of the contiki tours I’ve done have been more solo travellers than groups. . I’m traveling Europe next year also but on different tours, (anzac odysses, then European Escapade) I just wanted to let you all know, not worry about traveling alone, you will meet other like minded people on contiki, you all should have a blast on contiki, i did… when i was in New Zealand and the USA. Hope you all have a great trip, and i might see you all on Anzac Day :-)
