    Hey Kells, yes still doing this tour. not sure but if I should do it in April or May. I want one that is supposed to definatly leave on the date it says and i also have to work in with LA Explorer than NY Explorer. Any further traveling after the tour ends???

    hey! With luck it’ll be right! Does the April tour have a definite date?
    Yeah staying in LA for a few days before, then San Fran the night after.. Across to New York for 10 nights and Hawaii for 7 nights then home lol
    Seems like we’re doing a similar thing!

    hey guys,
    sounds like we’re doing the same thing just different days. I’m starting LA Explorer on 28th may then LA to the Bay. To answer your question about April or May i was told may is best because it’s cheaper to fly and there’s less kids around, as it’s after easter hollidays but before summer holidays.

    something to concider

    Kells we are doing exactly the same thing how funny! yes april does have a date that is set to go for LA Explorer (im doing it) it is april 17. have u booked anything or flights etc??

    haha it seems that way!! I’ve already booked the flights, tour and accommodation! lol i’m hoping the LA-The Bay May 4 goes ahead lol otherwise we’re just going to hire a car and travel around for the 10 days ourselves!
    Have you booked anything??

    I had a look at the tour thingo it is set to depart on may 04 regardless so thats good. I wld have to swap this thing up a little..could do LA To The Bay stay on in San Fran till Monday 16 May and fly to new york and do my own thing there for a week and than back to LA and do my own thing there. I had a look for some hotels as I would consider dropping the LA Explorer and NY Explorer. V Australia had a good deal with flights at the moment so i really need to make my mind up!!! Do u have facebook??

    oh that’s awesome!! Well i’m definitely booked on that tour!
    seems like you have a lot of decisions to make!!! lol Qantas was the cheapest for me! V Australia was so expensive! Yeah we are doing our own thing in New York too. tho I was in NY last August so I kinda know what I wanan do when I go back!
    hope you had a good new years!
    yeah I have FB.. What’s your email address? I’ll add you Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    hi guys, my husband and i are doing la to the bay leaving on may 4th too. will be my first time overseas and our belated honeymoon. we will do disneyland on our own before the tour starts and then stay longer in san fran once the tour is over.
    my cousin did the tour last year and said we HAVE to go hot air ballooning. any ideas on the extras that you are going to do?

  • 4 Apr 2011 kells86 said


    hey we are doing disneyland beforehand too! you will love it, I did it back in 2006!! was fantastic :)
    Yeah we are doing the hot air ballooning also, I think we will be doing the majority of the extra’s apart from the seaworld one – i heard that wasn’t very good..
    guess we will be seeing you soon!! :)
    Have a safe trip over !!
