    Hi Ella. I am trying to get on this tour, unfortunately I was a bit late trying to book! Fingers crossed someone has pulled out so I can jump in because I have already got myself so excited for it!!

    Hopefully you can get in! There is always someone that pulls out last minute. Yeah I’m really excited for it too :) Counting down the days. Can’t wait for the calgary stampede.

    I know you wrote back to another post somewhere but i cant find it anywhere! I am from Goulburn NSW. Where abouts are you from? When are you flying over to LA? I am still yet to book my flights and organise some accomodation for the day or two before the tour.

    I’m from Hervey Bay in Queensland. Its about 3 hours north of Brisbane. I also haven’t booked flights yet, but need to get onto it! But I’ve booked accommodation at the hotel the contiki tour leaves from. I’m staying at the Miyako Hotel on the 23rd for 2 nights before the tour. Doing twin share so its cheaper :)

    I feel like I’m missing some kind of documents! I have not had anything telling me about meeting up with another tour group or about where the tour leaves from etc. or maybe I just haven’t read what I’ve got properly!!

    Don’t worry! I only learnt from previous contiki tours :) I did 2 tours of America last year and they both had groups joining and leaving throughout the tour. Contiki also does pre and post accommodation before and after your tour for up to 2 nights. If you book through your travel agent they should book you into the contiki departure hotel. I think it’s the Miyako in LA and the Sandman in Vancouver. (At least I hope so!) You have the option to go in share accommodation where they try and put you in a room with someone from your tour. It’s a good way to meet people before the tour :) I think there is a bit in the brochure about it or you might be able to find more about it on the website. Hope that helps you out a bit!

    Hi Brad! It’s coming up so fast!! Yeah sure do Lauren:) Mine is www.facebook.com/ella.parr or I think if you search Ella Jade Parr I’m the only one. My friend Anne has also just joined this tour. Apparently it was closed and opened up again briefly and she got on too.
