- 11 responses so far
We paid our deposit for this tour a couple of weeks ago. I’m really looking forward to it!It’s going to be fantastic! It’s our first time to Europe, so I’m really excited.
Me me me! I’m coming on this tour!!! I am hopefully paying the deposit this week! I’m absolutely over the moon super dooper excited…lol. My sister is coming with me! We can’t wait!!!!
Ok guys, seeing as we’ll all be getting to know each other, lets talk about things we need to do.
I read somewhere on the site that we will need a sleeping bag, as this is a ‘concept’ tour. Are you going to bring your own from Oz, or buy one at the Contiki Basement before the tour starts?
If you’re bringing one from Oz, does it count as luggage on the flight?
When travelling on our tour, will we be dropping our luggage off at our hotel/village/hostel before deaparting on daily tours?
We’ll be taking our sleeping bags with us from Oz as we are doing a four day camping tour prior to the Euro Highlights tour on Sept 24.
I read that sleeping bags don’t count towards your luggage limit as far as the Contiki bus goes, but I would assume that it would if you were checking it in when flying.
I’ve been looking at ones that pack down really small and only weigh about 800g. I haven’t got a lot of experience with sleeping bags, but I’m guessing it would be a bit of a mission to get it back into the compression sack each morning.
I’m also wondering what temp rating we would need for Europe in Sept/Oct?
Hi fellow travellers!
My housemate David & I are booked for the Sep 24th trip which I see in the trip listings is now booked out! It’s both of our first trips out of Australia, I’m sure we’ll have the time of our lives.
Can’t wait to meet you all.
My Brother and I will be there – haven’t been overseas either so really looking forward to it! See you in September!!!
