    Hey guys, I’m Kim ! My friend meg and I have booked to go on the oktoberfest tour leaving the 23rd!!
    I seriously cannot wait !!
    I’m just bringing a towel and sleeping bag too. If you’re in oz, the post offices have a great little sleeping bag atm for $40 !!

    Our plans for over there so far is visiting the neuschwantein castle (google it, it’s amazing!) and my friend wants to visit the death camps :s but apart from that drink, drink and drink some more. Not a big fan of beer but all part of the experience !

    I’ve heard we leave london about 6 in the morning (dont quote me not 100% sure) but I know we have booked overnight accom in london at the suggested hotel by contiki. I think it was abotu 80 for the night. Hope that helps.

    Only 4 months and 15 days !! Can’t wait !

    hi guys! I’m planning to book this tour this week after I get paid, super excited!

    Kendra – I’m also doing this alone – I arrive in London Sept 18th so would be great to meet up at some stage – are you gonna be staying at the contiki hotel at all? I will prob book the night before, due to the early start.

    nadine, are you on facebook? add me if you can!

    and anyone else too!

    I haven’t looked into booking for where i’ll stay when I get to London, but probably a cheap hostel for the first week or so and probably the contiki hotel for the night before as well.

    Hi guys, I am doing this tour with my 3 friends. It sounds like it will be so much fun, I can’t wait!
    We are from Australia and are getting to Europe in July, doing a few Contiki’s (European Experience and Greek Island Hopping) and backpacking around. This will be our final stop before we head home so it will be epic!! See you all soon.

    Welcome Steve-o, good to know that there are going to be somemore drinkers on the tour !!!!!

    So now we have:
    3 South Africans
    " lots" of Aussies…………..
    anyone else from somewhere else????

  • 11 Jul 2010 Explorer1196725 said


    okay i might be booking either a 5 day trip or 7 day oktoberfest trip. more than likely 5 days.

    just wondering is it cheaper to book flight tickets with contiki or booking it on my own?

    i live in california, and average flights roundtrip from california to london is 1050. seems a bit much i think, is that a lot?
