46 days too long?
- 5 responses so far
i did 37 days and wished it was longer….we all got sick at some point in the tour but thats what happens when you are travelling non-stop! I don’t think I would handle camping for 46 days…but I would definately do the concept tour that is that long…
I did 46 days and it was awesome!!! what you also may want to look at doing is the greek island cruise to break up the 46 days of camping too – something i wish i had done <!--graemlin::)-->
I did three Contiki yours back to back in 2006 and was there for eight weeks. I figured it took a lot of time and money to get there, so I might as well take advantage of it.
I loved it! Having said that, I always came back to London between tours and did a Greek Island cruise as part of a tour. I also made sure that I did the things I wanted to do – even if that meant doing them myself, made some time for myself and got plenty of rest.
I did a 33 day tour in 2006. It was a good group, not a great group. I was sick for 30 of those days (and 2 weeks after). After 3 weeks I had a day where I was having a bit of a melt down, tired of being on tour, on a bus and of being around 2 really annoying people, one of those people got a piece of my mind. After that day though I was back to having a great time and didn’t want the tour to end.
46 days can be long, but a lot of people do and have a great time. You have to remember to pace yourself though. You can’t go out every night and get drunk and expect to enjoy the locations you’re at for 46 days. But the longer tours are designed to be a little slower paced so that you don’t get quite as run down.
