    Hi I’m Jenny. Looks like I am the latest person to book this tour. I’ll be traveling solo, so I am really excited to meeting you all.

    Wow…seems like everyone is old friends now Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
    Is there a fb group page for this tour that i could join?

    Can’t wait for Europe!!

    Hey Everyone,

    I am thinking about doing this tour or Panorama(its $1000 off).

    What should I do?
    How old is everyone? I’m 25

    I did a contiki in AussieLand last December and had a blast.

    Eric, you should definitely come on our tour. It seems like we have a great group of people already going Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> The general age range seems to be about early 20’s.. I’m 23 and my sister who I’m traveling with is 21.

    And Hi Jenny! Welcome to our little group here! So excited to meet everyone in person. Where abouts are you from?

  • 28 Jul 2010 Eric said


    That is pretty cool.

    I guess I should mention I am from Canada.
    When I was in Australia I had so much fun because of the people. You Australians are so much fun.

  • 28 Jul 2010 Eric said


    Hey Jess and Amanda,

    Did you girls book the sept 9th trip departing from Canada?

    I think the Aussies and us might be getting mixed up on dates. The Sept 9th tour on the Canadian contiki site ends on Oct 9th rather than Oct 7th(which would be the sept 7th trip on the Canadaian site).

    LOL I hope that wasn’t confusing.

  • 28 Jul 2010 DancingExplorer said


    Yep, we booked the one where we leave Canada on Sept. 9. and the tour doesn’t actually start til the 11th I think (two days travel time).

    I hope we all didn’t get confused!

  • 28 Jul 2010 Eric said


    Is everyone in this thread good party people?

  • 28 Jul 2010 Explorer1198220 said


    I just booked my flight to London. Looks like I will be in London a day before the tour begins. Now I need a place to stay for that one night. Any recommendations?

    BTW I’m from the USA. I think most of the people on this tour are Australians and Canadians. Sooo excited to meet people from around world! Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->

    uhohhh…i dont know if i am on this tour!!
    think i leave here the 7th and my tour starts the 9th!! not the 11th Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->

  • 29 Jul 2010 Eric said


    Is anyone staying extra days after the tour? or just going home?

    I’m thinking about staying an extra week.

  • 30 Jul 2010 Eric said


    Yea we leave from Canada on the 9th and with the time change and flight time, we would arrive on the 10th. Sept 11 is when we would be leaving for France.

  • 30 Jul 2010 Tegz101 said


    Welcome all!!!!

    wow more and more people!!!! im loving it!!!
    ummm we land in london on the 7th sept and depart on the 8th or 9th oct!

  • 30 Jul 2010 Eric said


    Well I did it.

    I booked the tour that leaves Canada on Sept 9th. I can’t wait, this will be fun.

    I will be going a day early if anyone wants to meet in advance.

    hi Jenny and Eric, welcome im so excited that we got more people coming, its going to be quite a trip Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    also Eric so your tour leaves the 9th September in Canada???
    cos me and my partner start our tour in London on the 9th of September.

    hope you are on our tour though

    yippee so so so close now

  • 31 Jul 2010 DancingExplorer said


    Yeah, that makes sense to me Eric… We leave on the 9th and the actual tour starts on the 11th with all the time changing and such. It’s too bad that we all got so mixed up on this forum here. From the sounds of it, it seems like Tegs and all them are on a different trip Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->

    On a different note, where are you coming from in Canada Eric?
