    Hi Ashleigh, I’m thinking of doing the European Experience around the same time solo. Have you done a tour before? I’m really excited/nervous to be going solo.

    Hey Chrissy! That’s awesome!
    Nah I haven’t done a contiki before, but way too keen to try it out! Have you?
    Yea going solo is a big decision, especially for a girl!

    I have booked the European Adventurer tour for 2015 solo which I’m pretty nervous/scared about! I haven’t spoken or seen also booked into the adventurer tour yet. First time in Europe by myself. I have heard really awesome things from some people about their solo trip though so I’m thinking we should be okay!

    Hey! Hopefully closer to the date more people will book your tour, then you can connect with them through the forum :)
    Yea everyone seems friendly on the tours so I’m sure we’ll be fine!

    Hey I’m starting to consider a solo trip! My bf isn’t that keen and most my friend either married, kids, houses, or already done Europe. It’s been a dream of mine so decided to bite the bullet and just do it! So reading on here alot of people go solo so that’s good! Now just have to pick which tour to do! I wanna do everything! Argh decisions. But would be great to go with other solo girl travellers! To have a little bit of peace of mind, so nervous!

    Im wanting to do the European Experience in June 2015 (26th of June to the 11th of July) – I will be going solo and looking to book this week, anyone going?

    A good friend and I are booked in for European Highlights in August 2015. It’s super exciting knowing you’ve booked and are on your way to paying it off, it makes it feel so much more real!

    I’ve just booked the European experience for the 8th of June next year :)

    Finally, someone with the same debate! I’m still between European Impressions and European Highlights. Last year I backpacked solo to Spain but left a couple of things to do in Barcelona. That is my main reason for booking European Impressions. –_

    European Highlights has more France and goes up to Rome. :-/
