    Hi! Thats fantastic. i am so excited to meet someone on our tour.
    My sister is thrilled that someone else will be travelling alone, so she doesn’t have to hang out with us all of the time! Im sure we’ll all make loads of friends anyway.
    We are from Newcastle, Australia.
    Are you travelling elsewhere before or after our tour?

    Hey Kimberley, Sorry it took so long to reply back Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->. Wow Australia that awesome. I am also thrilled that I found people to hang out with as well. I am not very good with directionsBig Grin<!--graemlin::D--> lol so its good to know some fellow travellers. Before the tour I am heading to England a couple of days early to do some shopping. After the tour I am heading to Malta. Are guys stopping anywhere before and or After the tour?

    We are actually going for 6 weeks all up. We have family that live 1/2 hour out of London so staying with them for a few days before the trip and after the trip. then we are off to Athens and doing the Mykonos and island cruising contiki tour. Then back to my family! Big trip!
    We will be staying at the Royal National Hotel in London the night before we leave to go on our tour. Are you staying there?
    Chloe is my sister. The one that left a comment before you! We are so excited.
    Do you have facebook?
    Take care

    Hello all!! I’m booking this tour in a few days. I’m traveling alone and will be in London a day in advance, since the trip itself doesn’t really tour London much. I was thinking of joining a local double-decker bus day tour – if anyone’s interested I’d love to get to know you before the actual tour starts!

    I’m 29, male, from Orange County, Southern California. I’ll set up a facebook group maybe?

  • 12 Feb 2010 Perky96 said


    I’ve created a facebook group for us – can’t wait to meet everyone before hand!

    I’m also booked on this trip, haven’t bought my air tickets yet. I’m thinking of reaching London on the 13th evening, so I have the 14th and 15th for exploring London. Any one else reaching before the 14th?

    There is another tour that leaves on July 16. It has been brought to my attention that some people in this group may be leaving home on the 14th of July and not London on the 14th of July. So was wondering how many of you are leaving London on the 14th of July and how many are leaving London the 16th of July (leaving home on the 14th)?

    Also was the facebook group for the tour leaving London on the 14th of July or leaving London the 16th of July (leaving home 14th of July).

    I guess it is easy to get confused with the tours so close together.

    I am on the tour leaving July 16. I arrive in London late afternoon on the 11th July and will explore London for a few days before the tour starts. I am staying near Oxford St, which is only about 15 minutes walk from the meeting place Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi Michelle,
    Our contiki tour leaves London on the 14th July. So we are not on the same tour as you. I think most people in this chat are the same as me. Maybe Neilguha is a little confused, thinking he is on our tour! I think he is on yours.
    Sorry! You will be arriving in countries as we are leaving them!
    Have a great time…..not long now!
