Hey everyone me and my girlfriend booked this tour today would be real interested to know anyone else doing this tour as well. It would be good to get to know a few people thoughout the year before the tour even starts. Hope to hear from a few people <img src="" alt="Smiler" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi Ben,
    I booked this tour this week as well. :-)
    Really looking forward to spending NYE in New York!

    That’s awesome….. Where bouts you from? We’re from Melbourne. We’re hopping to get there a few days earlier and spend Christmas over there.

  • 5 Jan 2011 Explorer1225023 said


    Yeah, I’m from Melbourne too. Think I’ll be heading over on Boxing Day and doing some sightseeing before the tour itself.
    Are you guys heading anywhere else, or just NY?

  • 5 Jan 2011 Ben8 said


    Yeah we’re planning on doing a fair bit of traveling over there just not sure where to yet definatly want to goto Vegas as well tho… You going anywhere else?

  • 5 Jan 2011 Explorer1225023 said


    Nah, just New York this time. I have to be back at work in early Jan so I thought I’d be better off spending a week or so in New York and seeing it properly, instead of spending a day or so in a few different places.
    Where are you thinking of staying before the tour starts? A hostel or hotel?

  • 6 Jan 2011 Ben8 said


    Not sure where were staying before hand yet propably a hotel, definatly a hotel for Christmas eve and Christmas day. Where you staying hotel or hostel…?

  • 6 Jan 2011 Explorer1225023 said


    i’m not sure yet either. I’d prefer a hotel but hostels are so much cheaper haha. Have to have a look around and check out prices.

  • 7 Jan 2011 Ben8 said


    Yeah hostels are cheap as! I have a mate who only stays at hostels when he travels he loves them. But what do you reckon they’ll be like in a new york winter tho? I’m guessing hostels would have to have some sort of heating?

  • 8 Jan 2011 Explorer1225023 said


    that’s the only thing thats worrying me about them! at least in a hotel i can control the temperature of the room.
    surely hostels would have heating and extra blankets and stuff though?

    Oh wow, the Trump Soho will be great! I’ve booked the Broadway Hostel and Hotel for the few days before the tour starts, but I’m staying in a private room. didn’t know if i could handle a dorm!
    i’m also thinking of either staying an extra night or two afterwards, or heading to LA for a few days on my way home.
