    Does anyone know why the tours have changed from Milford Sound to Dunedin instead? I mean I don’t mind as we get to go to the Spieght’s Brewery and Cadbury’s World. Also would it go to the Otago Peninsula on tour as it’d be cool to go penguin spotting :)

    I spoke to Contiki today and they said that the reason is that the Cruise boat for the overnight cruise is scheduled for renovations from October onwards and therefore the overnight cruise cannot happen and this is why they have restructured this part of the tour from Oct onwards. They have now added a Milford Sound optional which I believe is at an extra charge (I will know more about what the charge is early next week) and takes up a full day from the Queenstown part of the tour. :)

    Hi guys – I’m doing the Grand Adventurer 05/11/11 – 17/11/11 from Auckland so I’ll no doubt see some of you guys that are going up to the Bay Of Islands first before you arrive back in Auckland. I’m from London and this is my first Contiki tour. Flying to Sydney the day after the tour on 18th. Dunc.

    I’m leaving London on 1st Nov at 10pm via Dubai and Melbourne with Emirates. Gets to Auckland Thusday 3rd Nov afternoon so have a day in Auckland and then the tour leaves Saturday for me. Do people know where the tour picks up in Auckland? Are people planning on spending the night of the 17th in Christchurch?
