I just booked the London to Rome tour leaving on April 28th and it looks like I am going solo and was just wanted to see if anyone was booking this trip or the London to Athens with the same start date?

    Just me, it’s my second Contiki. I loved traveling alone and can’t wait to go again

    Oh nice! It’s my first time traveling alone so I’m slightly terrified but excited lol

    Yeah I was like that too, getting off the plane and trying to find a shuttle was scary, and not knowing where I was didn’t help! Luckily it was America, so at least they spoke English. I just asked for help and people were so willing to show me where to go etc

    Ya it helps that in London it will be in English but its exactly like you said you don’t really know where you’re going or where you are.

    Hello, i am considering joining this trip, it would be my first time traveling alone. I did a contiki 2 years ago with a friend. It was a little too much party for me, but it is the cheapest travel tour available. I am hoping this tour focuses more on culture and exploring as well. I would be arriving in london a day before trip , if anyone wants to explore with me.

    I will be in London for 3 days before the trip, so I’m keen! I have never travelled alone before either, so any friendly face will be a good one! I’m not much of a party person, but this tour seemed to mostly be what I wanted as it spends more than one night in each place. I am super excited for this!!

    This is my first time traveling alone as well so I’m a little nervous too. I’m arriving in England a few days early too but im spending a few days in Leeds visiting a friend but I plan to explore London on the Monday before the tour and would love to hang out with you guys!

    and I agree everyone should hurry up and check in already! lol

    Cause its a concept tour, there won’t be many people on the check in page, but there will be lots of people on the tour, they will just be going on further than us (not finishing in Rome). It happened when I did Western Highlights, there were 5 of us finishing in Vegas, everyone else was continuing on to San Fran or LA. I’m not sure what tour this one is part of, but its a big one that goes all round UK

    My friend just did the whole trip so I will ask her what one it was and let you know.

    Okay sorry this took so long. My friend did the winter wanderer, think its closed now. hope this helps. If anyone wants ideas on what to do before/after their tour starts, i have heaps of website links to mini itineraries etc. I’m in London for 3 weeks after my tour so planning heaps of stuff!

    Hey do we need to bring our own sleeping bag? I swear my agent said one would be provided but I just read in a discussion people saying that since London to Rome was a concept tour you had to bring your own.
