    Hey, yeah i’m trying to figure out how many days to stay before the tour in ny and days after in la. and organising what i should do b4 and after for day tours etc. but i’m thinking of staying 2/3 days before and about 5 days after. I found this great start called viator.com which has a whole load of day tours to choose from. what are your plans… i’m so excited.. it was like a last minute thing to book this tour but i’ve been wanting to go on a contiki tour for a few years now and just kept putting it off.

    hey… for your 3 nights in anahiem, did you book your accomodation direct with contiki or just off the net?? $195.00 that is per night right?

    Yea i booked the 3 nights in anahiem direct with contiki and the one night in NY on the net. No the 3 nights is $195. Something like $65 per night. It is $50 cheaper when you book a Maarakech room for one the night on the net than it is through contiki.

    But what about the twin share part about it? Coz the marakech hotel room’s 210/night but that’s the price for twin share.. and I’m traveling on my own so how is that going to work out if I booked it online?

    I really dont know that one. The Marrakech is $210 through contiki but when you book it on the net its chaeper. The reason i book the thing on line is that the people from the travel shop sayed that contiki only has a couple of allocated rooms to them. They also sayed something that there will always be someone with you in the room and if not more room for you.

    I booked the Marrakech hotel on the net too as I’m staying 3 nights before the tour and works out to be around $150.00 a night. Still waiting to hear back from Contiki about accommodation after the tour at the Best Western as it may be already be full I’ve been told.I so want time to fly… whats everyone planning on doing in ny before the tour??

    hey guys,

    just wanted to check… do you pass through new orleans on the 3rd March? cos we start our southern adventure tour on the 3rd departing NO, which i presume is the 2nd half of the grand southern…

    anyways, if so, looking forward to meeting you all.
