Europe June/July 2014

7 Jan 2014 littleb asked


I am planning my first Contiki Europe tour travelling between the 29th of June and 22nd of July. I am having a crazy time making up my mind as there are so many amazing tours to choose from. What have you guys booked/can recommend so far?

I don't have any friends who are financially able to go around this time or have committed to other travel plans and am really hoping to find someone in the same boat who'd like to travel together, as I'd rather not go alone! Yay for solo travel?

Thanks B xx

    I just booked the European Discovery tour June 23-July5th, 2014. I’m traveling alone. Arriving in London a couple of days early so I can explore the city. Would love to meet up with people who are on the same tour thinking of arriving early as well!

    I did the European Discovery in 2012 and it was the most amazing tour/experience ever! It was that good that I’ve decided to go back overseas and do the Greek Island Hopping tour for my 21st :)

    My sister and I are going on European Experience 30 June-19 July, traveling all the way from Cape Town South Africa. This will be our first time going Contiki and out first time ion Europe. We are arriving 2 days early and are looking for places to stay at before our tour starts. Preferably in London, this way we can see London etc and stay close by until the magic begins. Any recommendations on where to stay, anyone going on this tour coming through early like us and wanting to join us? maybe meet up before tour?? Lots help ail be needed the more the merrier :) I know its still a few months to go but we need to book accommodation etc so please let me know, experienced or new comers.
