    Hi there Maddy
    I did the LA to the bay in August 2013. It was unreal.
    I met a lot of great ppl and made a lot of new friends. Along with all the treasurable memories and experiences that went along with the tour.
    I went solo on the tour but that wasn’t a problem. On the first nyt Contiki put you in rooms with ppl from your group so you meet them before the tour as well as a group meet in the lobby of your hotel you stay at. Be surprised for late nights early rise.

    Our tour manager Stephanie was awesome, she had a lot of knowledge of the areas and was helpful with questions and answer within our tour and towns and city’s we visited.
    Our bus driver Kim. Well what can I say. Absolutely wicked sence of humour. Great person, handy driver lol

    PS: when I was on this tour, we had other tours on our bus as we’ll. we had, Western Highlights and wild western ppl. Which was good..

    All of the optional extras are quite good (value for money) .
    San Diego, Speed boats, San Diego zoo, Sea world
    Phoenix, hot air ballooning
    Sedona, jeep tour
    Grand Canyon, helicopters, bike ride
    Vegas, group photo, V theater (piss funny)

    Hope this is an insight for you and if you want to know more then I’m happy to answer your questions.

    I know this was a couple of years ago, but how much spending money did you take?
