    Hey There,

    Not going on the Grand Southern but looking at the Grand Northern or Best of USA (when and if they put dates up). Thinking of July/August…

    Travelling solo so keen to meet people before I go Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    I’m thinking about doing both Grand Southern and Grand Northern one after each other. But if I can’t do both will be doing one or the other, just trying to choose! Will be planning to go in April or May 2011!

    Hi Hol,

    I thought about doing the same thing as you, however it’s my first contiki and I thought it’s a long time to be stuck on one if I don’t actually like it haha.

    Haha – yeah good point. But from everyones reviews they seem to be both really good!
    I’ve done 2 Contikis in Europe which we had 3 days between the 2 and we were fine. But neither of them went for 25 days either.
    I think my choice is going to come down to money unfortunately Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->

    Ahhh ok. Yeah they both sound AWESOME. But I think I’m going to have to stick with Northern for now. And maybe the NY Explorer or something beforehand!

    All a matter of timing I guess. Luckily for me I have the money saved, I’ve just put of travel because the friends didn’t have the money to do it…so now I’m just gonna do it anyway haha.

    I recently got back from a 3 month trip to the US. I did the Grand Northern and Grand Southern back-to-back and I have to say I had an AWESOME time on both. BUT, for me, the Northern has the edge. The National Parks are just amazing, especially Yellowstone – our group were lucky enough to get to do a hike through the snow, it was incredible. The Southern is great too, but definitely more of a party tour. If you want to be able to kinda relax and party occasionally – the Grand Northern is for you.
    Cheers. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->


    Oh, and feel free to ask any questions you may have about the tours, I’m more than happy to answer/help you guys out. Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->
