    I am also looking at doing a tour by myself toward the end of July, early August. The European Explorer + Mykonos Island tour and London to Athens + Greek Island Hopping tour have caught my eye. Like the above person, I was wondering if anyone else in Sydney was looking at being there around July/August?

    most of the people on Contiki are doing it solo, I think on my trip id say about 75% or more were solo, so dont worry much about it!
    Also Aussies are for the most part the bulk of the people on the tours, So I am sure youll end up having a few others on the same tour.
    Id check your tours meeting area here in the forum, might be able to meet some people before hand.
