    Hi Ness

    My Wife and i are doing the LA to Las Vegas only part of your tour. i did the Wild Western in October 2005 and although it was a bit chilly (-4 at the GC) it was a B L A S T.

    So i booked up for me and the missus to go back to the US of A in MAY, (She is from Brazil and has not seen much of the world yet, this is just a little bit of it, next….AUSTRALIA)

    we will be arriving on the 2nd of May too, but are staying at a different hotel to the Contiki one, the “Anabella”, i am trying to book online the Hollywood & LA Tours, have the Disneyland tickets already booked.

    Hi guys,

    I’ve booked this tour also! I’m from Sydney, Australia and this will be my first time to the USA. Feel free to add me on myspace –
    This will be my second contiki – I did the 21 days camping in Europe last year and had such an awesome time.

    Hiya Ness, Anastacia, Matt & Nicole

    I am Irish and as i said my Wife is from Brazil, and although we got married in 2007, we plan on doing a ceramony in Las Vegas (with the Elvis Impersonater) just to renew our vows, have not planned on what night but we will be in Vegas for a further 6 nights so we have plenty of time.

    We were going to do the LA Explorer but at the time when we tried to book we were told that the hotel was full, so i booked the Hotel Anabella (which is near to the Best Western, i think) and on the Sunday 3rd May, we are going on a Universal Studios, LA & Hollywood tour, then on to Disneyland for Monday and Tuesday.

    We are not the youngest travellers, both of us are on the 35 end of the “18 to 35’s” part of the Contiki Holidays but we will party and have a great time juat like the best of them.

    Slainte (Cheers in Irish)
