    Yeah im heaps excited! How long are you over there for? Im visiting my friend in London so i arrive on the 20th of August, and leave about the 16th of September so im there for around 4 weeks. She went on the European Vista tour about 2 months ago and loved it! Are you booked in at the Royal National Hotel b4 our tour? Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->

    Its not too bad compared to other hotels and i think thats where we all meet. Ive heard a lot of people stay there that are going on contiki. Ive booked the night b4 (Aug 25th) and the night we get back (Sept 7th i think), just because we have an early morning start when we leave, and when the tour ends, we could get back to London between 5-8pm. So im not gonna catch the tube when its dark to meet up again with my friend. You should ask your travel agent, they’ll be able to give you all the details and prices. I also booked a twin share room because its cheaper. How many days b4 the tour do you arrive in London?

    I definately want to go a day early so I can have a day and a half to see London! I figure it’s worth the extra night hotel and a way to meet some people pre tour Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I just haven’t booked the flight/hotel yet, I shouldd probably do that!!

    Hey, i got a call from my travel agent today and she said our tour that leaves on the 26th is cancelled because there weren’t enough people, so i have transferred to the one leaving on the 28th now. That tour is a guaranteed departure so thought that would be safer. So im now staying at the Royal the 27th of Aug and the 8th of Sept instead.

    You may need more than one day to look around London, theres heaps to do and if you have jetlag, you’ll be really tired when you start contiki the day after?!

    Let me know what you decide to do, but i thought i’d let you know what the situation is. And yeah, i think its a good idea to book your flights etc soon! Have you already booked the contiki tour?

    Heya again!! Our tour actually starts on the 27th, even though it’s considered day 2…hmmmmm I went to look @ other dates and there aren’t any leaving on the 28th… The one leaving on the 26th is guaranteed depature tho..

    I’m confused! L O L Did u mean that you had changed your hotel stay??

    Chat soon!! Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hey, yeah the tour im booked on now is definately the 28th, i just checked the booked and its ticked as a guaranteed departure. Contiki gave me the choice of the 23rd Aug tour or the 28th. Its all confirmed i have a copy of the paper work. What has your travel agent said?

    hiya!! I booked online, and it said that it was a gd… I actually requested a brochure a couple of days ago and the 28th start date is listed as a gd and not the 26th.. The 28th gd isnt even listed online… L O L now im confused… i may have to give them a call…

    Hi Angela

    My name is Arvin I booked the Euro Discovery for the 26th. I’m 28 coming in from Toronto and this is my first Contiki tour (My first vacation in a very long time actually). Can’t wait!

    Online says 26th is guaranteed. There is no 28th listed. I also got a letter from contiki confirming the august 26th date. I’m not sure where the 28th date is coming from.

    Hey Arvin how are ya? Yeah its all getting a bit confusing. I havent looked online at the dates because Ive always done everything thru my travel agent so I’ll have to double check when i go in this week.

    Angela – no i dont have a roommate yet, i have booked twin share at the Royal and on the tour so will find out who im sharing with when i get there!

    Have a good week guys! Chat soon Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->

    Hey every1!

    The dates seem confusing bc the tour starts on day 2 of the trip, which is the 28th. We have to be in London by the 27th, although I’m gonna head over a day or so early Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hey Arvin!! I’m from T.O too Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Are a you a student/working etc?? l ol

    Hey Lauren, nice to meet you. I’m doing great, very excited about the trip. How are things with you? Definitley get your agent to double check, cause it would really suck if you get there after the tour leaves. Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Angela – I booked my flight through expedia.ca. A round trip from Toronto to London will cost your around $650 Cdn. Where are you flying out from?

    Hah, I posted just as you were posting. I work at RBC (IT building right in front of the CN Tower) and finishing school part time. What school/program did you just finish?

    Im flying out of Pearson too… just figuring out if I should spend an extra day in London before the trip!

    I finished my Political Science degree last year and just just finished post grad studies in public relations at college. FINALLY done school!!!

    I booked my flight for the 26th leaving at 9:55pm on Air Transat. I get to London on the 27th 9:55am. I would have left earlier but I have to go to a wedding the day before.


    Congrats regarding your school! I know the “never ending school” feeling. So are you going to get involved in the next election cycle?

    When you book a flight, do you have to pay it all at once, or can you just put down a deposit??

    I am such a leftie, socialist really, so I find that North American politics really do nothing. I think that more drastic measures need to be taken to acheive social justice Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Gosh Im SUCH a nerd!!
