    Hello! I’m planning on booking this tour later this weekend! It’s the one they show as starting on the 23rd but really leaves the 25th right?

    I’m trying to get a couple of friends to come along for different legs of the tour, but I’ll be going regardless of whether or not any of them get around to booking!

    I did my first contiki tour in summer 06 and I cannot wait to go again!

    Hello! My husband & I will be on this tour as well (dep 25 June 2010)

    I am 26 and he is 33. But we have always found it easy to get along with people of any age.

    I’ve never travelled oversea’s before so am getting VERY excited.

    Oh – and we’re Aussie’s!!

    This is my 3rd time over seas but my first time going on my own, starting to get a bit scared!

    Hi Cian. We are from Queensland. About an hours north of Brisbane.

    Has anyone booked flights yet? I haven’t and am getting frustrated with the current prices


  • 26 Feb 2010 Cianeckford said


    I booked my flights last month i got $1800 from Perth flying Emirates, so i am pretty happy with that

  • 28 Feb 2010 Katie&Matt said


    We’re hoping to fly Emirates as well. Looking at leaving around the 20th.

    Getting more and more excited each day! Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->


  • 6 Mar 2010 Katie&Matt said


    Flights are booked – $1900 from Brisbane with Emirates!

    Just passports and suitcases to go and then everything but the packing is done!!

    Hey guys,
    I’m going on this too.
    Cian I’m also from WA – which part are you from?
    Can’t wait to meet you all Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hey Julia,
    I’m in a small mining town in the Pilbara Pannawonica, where are you from?
    When is everyone arriving in London?

  • 13 Mar 2010 Katie&Matt said


    Matt & I arrive on the 21st.

    We’re also staying in London for an extra week or so after the tour.

    Only 14 more weeks to go!!

    I’ll be flying in on June 20th! I can’t wait to meet you all! 97 Days Left! Do any of you use facebook?

  • 14 Mar 2010 Wrinewind said


    Yahar! 97 days indeed ’til taking flight from Orlando! Big Grin<!--graemlin::D-->
    Zee trip is booked and I look forward to rocking out with you all!

  • 14 Mar 2010 Katie&Matt said


    Ha – June 20th seems to be the day to fly.

    Char – am indeed on facebook. Have left a note or two on the Contiki page there; but no one from our tour has found it yet Frowner<!--graemlin::(--> Doesn’t help that about a million people post something on there every minute.

  • 15 Mar 2010 Char said


    Katie – I tried to see how many people post to the contiki group on facebook and you are completely right – it’s insanity! not to mention that there are separate groups for Australia and the U.S..

    Oh well. Hopefully more people will find their way over here!

  • 16 Mar 2010 julia said


    Hey Cian, I’m from Perth. Still haven’t booked flights ¡ but will probably get to London on the 22nd. I’ll fly either Royal Brunei or Emirates, if its Emirates we might end up on the same flight! When are you flying out?

    Char, I’m on facebook too – you might be able to find me using my email address,

    Not too long to go!

  • 16 Mar 2010 Katie&Matt said


    Three more months!

    Has anyone been to the UK before around this time of year? Am starting to think of things I should be buying for the weather

  • 19 Mar 2010 bellyk said


    Hi everyone! I’ll be joining you on tour. Travelling by myself

  • 19 Mar 2010 bellyk said


    Just checked – The tour is fully booked Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

  • 21 Mar 2010 Char said


    Welcome Kelly! Looking forward to meeting you! Do you know if the tour is fully book with people doing the entire trip or does that include people just doing scotland and ireland?

    Katie – I’ve been to the UK about four years ago and the weather was definitely cold enough for a sweatshirt and jeans, but nothing too bad. I hear it does get chilly in the highlands though!
