    Hey Dani and Becky, I booked the Ultimate European today, for the 29th of June with Greek Islands!
    I’m also going solo, so it would be great to meet some people before hand! :D

    How exciting Teyernan!! Have you joined the contiki meet up for our tour yet? It will also have the rest of our group on there :)

    I can’t wait! :D
    I haven’t yet, but I definitely will, so excited already :)

    hi teyernan :) yay! you chose a good tour :P are you staying in london beforehand? im probably just going to stay at the contiki hotel i heard its close to everything

  • 20 Oct 2013 Teyernan said


    Haha it seems like I definitely have! :D
    I arrive on the 27th of June, so not too long before the tour starts, but I’ll be staying at the royal national (contiki hotel). I stayed there last time, it’s a really good hotel and yep pretty close to everything :)
    And after the tour I’m pretty much staying indefinitely haha, I’m hoping to get a visa, and do a little bit of work in London, but I’m definitely open to doing other cool things with anyone staying after the contiki! :D

    Hey DaniLee, I have booked the European Adventurer tour leaving on the 27 June. I reckon its a solid trip that covers most of the European countries and has a minimum of 2 nights in places. I am going with a mate and we are staying in london 2 nights beforehand and 4 nights after !

    My only tip for which ever tour you go on is if you get a choice in the days you are in the greek islands go to Ios !

    Also ! DONT stay in the contiki hotel ! I know a few people who have gone and said its beyond horrible and expensive ! You can get somewhere close by for cheaper and nicer! I guess though everyone will be staying there and it might be a place to meet people beforehand. :)
