    I am debating on these dates. This will be the first time I am traveling solo. I would like to meet some people in the forums before I go. =)

    Is anyone a solo traveler? I would love to chat and meet online before I go so that I won’t be all alone!

    Hello All, My friend and I just booked this trip yesterday. We are going a day early and flying out of JFK in NY on EgyptAir. I am so looking forward to this trip, its gonna be great.

    This is my second trip with contiki. My first trip was to Italy solo and I had an amazing time. I’d love to hear from anyone else going on this trip. You can email me at

    Hi Everyone! My friend and I just booked this trip tonight. This is our second Contiki; I did the European Discovery last March and I was a solo traveler. She also did the same trip five years ago. She, too, was a solo traveler.

    A word of advice, if you’re friendly and open to meeting new people, I wouldn’t worry about traveling solo. Contiki travelers are warm and super friendly. Everyone is in the same boat and looking to make friends. If you think about it, you’re about to embark on this amazing (possibly once-in-a-lifetime) holiday with this group of people who share your love of travel. Enjoy it!

    We’re so excited. I’m from San Francisco and she’s from St. Louis. Drop a line to say hello!

    We’re flying in a day early and staying two nights after the tour is over and we’re staying in the Contiki hotel, The Oasis.

    Hi Irene, Christina and DarDar:

    Great to see you on here! Have you guys booked already?

    If so, when are your flights leaving? I’m flying on Dec. 25 on United (SFO) after 6:00 p.m., flying through Frankfurt and meeting my friend Hailey there and then we’re taking a flight to Cairo arriving at 3 a.m. on the 27th.

    Feel free to email me at or find me on Facebook.

    Four + months and counting! Can’t wait!

    Hi my name is David and I’m from Arizona, USA. I was thinking of booking this trip because one of my friends from a previous Contiki tour (years ago the big European one) is going. I thought it would be a great start to the New Year being somewhere as incredible as Egypt and hopefully mark 2009 as a great one. Does anyone know how booked this trip is. Coming from the US I need to leave Christmas day to get to Cairo on time and I was thinking not too many people would do that.

    I’m Just Curious, is anyone else going to be on the Egyptair flight that leaves JFK on Dec, 25th? Also is anyone else arriving on the 26th? My friend an I were considering going to see the pyramids on the 27th just to get some extra time there.

    See ya all in 3 weeks!
