So… no one is booked on this trip? I’m looking for some company to Jordan. My schedule is as follows:
October 21: Bus to Nuweiba, fast ferry at noon to Aqaba. Overnight in Aqaba.
October 22: Wadi Rum & overnight in a Bedouin camp
October 23: Petra
October 24&25: Amman and fly back to London
I am! Just signed up Friday. Can’t make it to Jordan though, wish I could but not enough time off of work <!--graemlin::(-->
I just signed up too <!--graemlin::cool:--> …but I’m flying back on the 21st…
Now we are three!
So are you both traveling alone too? I hope to find a roommate here before the trip. Looking forward to meeting and traveling with you both!
I’ll be traveling alone.
So does anyone else wonder why the Egypt board is under Europe and not Africa?
Contiki doesn’t do tours to Africa. Technically, Egypt is in the Middle East but it’s close enough to Europe since it doesn’t fit anywhere else.
You can add me to your msn if you want.

Actually Egypt is on the continent of Africa so if Contiki doesn’t do tours to Africa then someone should tell them they are <!--graemlin::)--> Perhaps in politics and culture it may seem more Middle Eastern but geographically it is not.
I’m Marsha(29 f) from New York. Planing on booking the oct 12, 07 trip shortly. Looking forward to meeting everyone.
Hello everyone <!--graemlin::)-->, I’m sorting out my bookings but I will most likely be on this tour with you guys. Any tips? I’m 25/m Brisbane. This will be my fourth Contiki tour this year. I did the 22 Day Europe Camping just over a month ago.
Hi Marsha and EUtrotter! Welcome! The more people I see post here the more excited I am about going. BTW, I haven’t posted it yet but I’m 33/f.
Me: 30/m. San Diego, California <!--graemlin::)-->
Hello friends, I’ve booked and paid in full <!--graemlin::)-->
Are you guys getting your visa before the trip, or waiting till you get there?
First time i ever hear about a visa?
please do fill in.
I’m getting mine beforehand as the Contiki rep said it’s a really good idea since they can always deny you a visa when you get there. I’m using the service they recommended:
A bit pricey but I’d rather have the whole visa thing out of the way <!--graemlin::)--> If you are near a consulate I think you could just go and get yours in person as well. Also, some (very few) countries require a visa to fly though so be sure to check anywhere you have a stop at !
The Egyptian Embassy keeps on telling me that since I’m a Canadian, I should get it at the Cairo Airport. The lady says that they really don’t care.
I’m getting my visa at the airport! I’m leaving Brisbane this coming monday 27 Aug. See you guys then!
Just signed for this trip, figured I’d drop in and say hello <!--graemlin::)-->
I’ll be flying in from Toronto through Milan.
Looking forward to meeting everyone.
Anyone get their contiki travel packet and ugly green thing yet?
