First ever Contiki Tour, and first time over seas. I've booked reaaaaaally early, but is anyone else going on this tour too? Or on one of those that meet up with it along the way?

    Hey Beca, my tour starts on the 14th of August so I guess I will meet up with your tour. My first contiki too. Can’t wait :)

    Hi, I’m on that tour too (Auckland-Christchurch). It’s also my first Contiki Tour, so I’m pretty excited. By the way, I’m Selina from Switzerland. :)

    Which tour are you doing, Emma?

    Hi Selina! Glad I’m not the only first timer! I’m from Australia.

    JD, I’m on the Auckland to Christchurch tour. Are you going on that one too?

    Hey, I’m on the Auckland to Queenstown, so I think I meet up with you guys on the 14th and I finish on the 27th. It’s my first time too. Not too long to go now :)

    I am doing the Kiwiana Panorama Auckland to Christchurch 14/8 to 29/8 which I believe joins onto that tour? Can’t wait!

    It’s so close now! So you’re joining us after we get back from Paihia, am I right Matt?

    I think so? I got told that the Kiwiana Panorama joins onto the Big Tiki.. I think Big Tiki goes North from Auckland then back down to Auckland on 14th Aug which is when we meet up? Then finish in Christchurch on Fri 29th? I think its just as cold here in Tasmania at the moment! Looking forward to it

    Sounds about right. We’re back in Auckland end of day 3. I’m really not looking forward to the cold.. I’m usually great in winter, but not this year! And Adelaide isn’t even all that cold!
