    Hi, My two friends and are are interested in doing a contiki tour in Europe 08 in July. We really want to go to the meddteranean so we’re interested in tours that cover France Italy and Greece. We also have to work around our university holidays, which are about 30th June – 23rd July (and we’d have to leave about 4 days for flying there and back). So probably thinking of one of the 16-22 day tours

    Also,does anyone know when you have to book by to get the early bird discount. Because the brochures say december 06, but that doesnt make any sense coz the tour dates arent even out now!

    I can only go if i save up $4000 though to pay for my tour :S… at the moment I have $300 haha

    Im from Warren, well we have 9 weeks so we are trying to base our trip round that, starting off with greek islands then heading back to the motherland and travelling round england, ireland and scotland. I have dates for my contiki we are going to do the european highlights on the 18th July, my mate found out some how? Then we are going to hit up Beijing for the start of the olympics and from there we are going to spend our last 2 weeks in the USA. There is going to be a lot of grog consumed in 2 months, ill come home with serosis of the liver lol.
