European Summer 2015 Contiki Tour

11 Jun 2014 rhiannonhanson asked


Decided to wait and book a Europe tour next year on my own,
wondering who else was thinking to do the same alone :)?
Nervous but seems like a great opportunity and experience!
Can't wait for September for the dates to be released.

    I agree, great mix.! After it, I’m hoping to go to Spain (especially Ibiza) What about you? It is, especially considering we are doing it ourselves, be great to do the same one and have that comfort of not being by yourself the entire tour haha.

    Hello :) special priced dates went on sale not to long ago! I’m going on my own and will be doing the big chill tour. Starting July 7th :) Travelling alone is so exciting but scary at the same time!

    I’ll think I’ll do the European escapade or whatever it is that’s on sale now. 25 days! Would fit will with my uni holidays. I’m completely going solo because I’m sick of shitty friends pulling out and not going through with things. I think it’ll be better. Meet new friends and have some me time. I hope someone goes on that one!

    Anyone looking at doing the European Escapade tour in May 2015? My friend and I are looking to go around then, as was told that during June/July they tend to bump up the price of everything and that the queues are doubled :(

    Hey everyone. I am from New York and new to Contiki. Planning on my first solo trip to Europe. Any suggestions/ideas? I would love to go to Italy, Spain, and France. I am planning on going May/June 2015. Anyone else going solo and at this time? Be great to make friends before hand :) I am nervous but also excited and looking forward to adventure and getting out of my comfort zone.
