Hey! My friend and I are doing the Beaches and Reefs (start Cairns) tour starting August 23, 2014. Just looking to see if anyone else is on this tour or thinking about registering for it! Really crossing our fingers it turns into a definite departure!! If anyone has done this tour in the past, what did you think and any tips?!?

    Hey Flo!
    That is so exciting!! Have you been able to chat with a lot of people on your tour yet?

    Yes I have found one other girl on my tour and we chat via facebook which is kl, my tour is a def departure so has to be more people out there somewhere!!

    How fun! Right now my friend and I are waiting for our departure date to become definite, but as of right now we are the only two people signed into our meet up! And yes more people must be floating around somewhere, especially in your case since it’s definite! Was your departure definite right from when you booked or did it become definite later on?

    Ah I am sure it will. Mine was definite when I booked. I am also the only person in my meet up, I found the other girl on facebook on the contiki page there. She is doing the city and surf tour that runs at same time as beaches and reef which is 7 days long not 14 days. Might be worth you putting a message on the facebook contiki site and see if other people are booked on dif tours with the same date and place departure. I also know the big walkabout tour starts in Sydney and those people will also be on beaches and reef tour but their tour finishes later as it’s a longer one! Hope this all makes sense! :)

    No that totally makes sense! it’s comforting to know that you are the only person on your Meetup too! My friend and I were beginning to think that people just weren’t signing up! More people need to hop on these Meetups :)

    Yes I know they should shouldn’t they? The girl I have met on facebook said that most people book via a travel agents and they never tell them bout this site or meet ups so hence why people people don’t sign up etc

    Hey, I recently also booked the reefs and rainforest for Aug 13 starting in Cairn. I’ll be meeting up with a friend a week before the tour starts and he says that out of all the tours contiki offers this one is a must. So I’m also crossing my fingers the tour is a definite departure.

    Sweet! Looks like your tour departs a week before ours. Yeah my friend and I are doing some travelling prior to our Contiki departure date so we really need it to become definite! I hear these tours are super popular so hopefully they will fill up!

    My friend and I are doing the same tour but not until November 8th…thought the weather might be a little better? Either way I also heard it was awesome and am sooooo excited!!!

    Ya we thought about the weather too, but we won’t be starting until late August so they will be coming out of their “winter.” We would have loved to have done it a bit later but it just didn’t work out with our schedules! Plus I don’t know that it ever really gets too cold there, especially since we will be coming from Canada where anything above 10C is considered warm haha. I bet you will have perfect weather when you go though!
