    So that makes 4 of us lol. Hey, does anyone know how many people actually go on this tour? I thought I saw a post saying there was about 40 or 45 people. Thats heaps, more than I was expecting. We did a South American tour and there was only 15 of us.

    YAY 4!

    I think it can be up to 45 but maybe because ours is a Guarenteed departure it may not get full so there could be less!! but we might just have to wait and see….

    Are you guys going backpack or suitcase??

  • 13 Jan 2011 Explorer1226924 said


    We are going back pack. It’s easier to get around that way. More mobile. When you’ve gotta pack the bags on the bus etc. they are more maneovarable. It may be a bit more difficult with a suitcase but I guess its up to you if you wanted to take one.

    Hellloooo. Im also doing this tour with my partner.. Wish time would just fly and be August already. Were also taking backpacks.After doing two other trips overseas with them, they are just so much more flexible and convenient when compared to suitcases. :-)

  • 26 Apr 2011 Breeya said


    Hi guys! I’m in the process of hopefully joining you. Apart from a few weeks in Thailand i’ve never been overseas and (at the ripe old age of 26 ;P) i’m getting to the point where i think if i don’t do it now i just never will. Only issue is my boyfriend in my ear telling me it will be a horrible experience if i go alone – he’s not much of a traveller. Being a reasonably timid person i’m already shitting myself enough but figure if i can get on a plane solo and actually get there once the group meets we’ll all be so excited and just start talking and i’ll be fine? Thoughts? I just think the experience of a lifetime is around the corner and i’ll be forever kicking myself if i pass it up!

    HI Breeya

    I am doing this solo as well and I have only ever travelled from New Zealand to Australia and I am 24. I am feeling much the same but I know when I get there and we meet everyone it will be fine!! I am fortunate to be flying to London with a friend but I will be doing contiki alone… so we can stress together til we go but it will be AMAZING so just book!! haha (and if you do decide to come join the tours facebook page then we can chat til its time)

    Hey Breeya,
    All good going by yourself. I’ve done one other tour in South America and most people there were by themselves. The solos always find someone in their group who they will get along with. My partner and I go off and do our own things sometimes anyway.
