    the Gatwick airport is FAR! So I think we’ll probably get to the hotel at the same time. Are you dropping off your stuff there first, then heading out? We check in at 2pm I believe and meet with the tour ppl at 6pm…

    what’s this about meeting the tour people at 6? is this everyone staying in the hotel?

    This is what is says on the contiki website about our tour…

    Check-in to your hotel after 2pm and the remainder of the day is free to relax before meeting your fellow travellers at 6pm. After dinner take a short walk to explore nearby Covent Garden.

    Sounds like for those staying in the hotel…

    Hi Sal, Im Peter from Australia and I am travelling alone.I arrive in London on the 24th July and my European Highlights tour leaves London on the 25th July..Is this the same tour you are on?

    hey sarah, yeah i’ll be dropping my stuff off at the hotel and then exploring or something until 6. I saw an article on this site about getting from heathrow to the hotel, its probably going to take me about an hour by subway. it didnt mention gatwick, but im sure theres an article on here somewhere that might be of use to you for getting to and from the airport.
    Do you know if we have to wait until 2 to drop our luggage off? or if we can leave it at the hotel whenever we get there and just come back later around 5 to check in before meeting everyone?
