    Hey Ash’lee:

    I’m also going on this tour AND also from Canada!! (I live in Toronto). I’m so excited someone else has posted! I’m nervous cause I’m going on my own! Have you gone thru Contiki before?

    I am soo excited to have found someone else! I’m going alone too but I think it will be exciting. I am slightly afraid of missing flights in airports and I am also spending a few days alone in London after which scare me though! I have never gone through Contiki before but I have also never heard a bad thing about it. Have you been to Europe before?

    OMG!! Me too! – when the tour ends in Madrid, I’m flying to London to spend two days there! I’m also arriving a day early in Rome, so I’ll be there the night before on my own.
    No, never been to Europe – but really excited too!
    Are you on facebook??

    Hi Stephanie,

    I was a bit nervous as well but I’ve been waiting for this trip for weeks now and I can’t wait to just get on the plane!

    I am leaving OZ soon and spending time with family in other parts of Europe before the tour. This will be my first Contki tour and I’m solo.

    Hey Everyone,
    I’m NOT going on your trip but i’ve travelled with Contiki and would like to offer some advice:
    If you plan on taking a credit card to Europe, you may want to call your credit card company to let them know you’ll be travelling so they don’t think the card has been stolen and cut you off.

    Another thing I recommend is carrying your cash in a money belt, I find it safer.

    When you pack, throw some clothing into your carry-on to lighten the weight of the suitcase and in case your luggage gets lost. Leave room for souveneirs & carry with you an extra copy of your pasport and hotel address list.

    In terms of weight of luggage, it’s the airlines that are more strict than Contiki. Each airline has their own weight threshold & will only be too glad to charge you extra for going over. You can find out the limit/rules by going on the airline’s website.

    Feel free to ask me anything else.

    Grand Explorer ’00
    Rainbow Nation ’01 (no longer offered by Contiki)
    Beaches & Reefs ’02-’03

    Hi Marie & Everyone….

    I am from Australia, Queensland Gold Coast.

    It is three weeks today that we are jet setting off for this trip and getting more and more excited. One question, does anyone know if all our hotels offer towels, i was told to take a sarong and chemois towel instead of a normal towel as they take up to much room???

    If anyone can make any suggestions of a must have that i may not think about would be helpful.

    Thanks Loogie for your tips!
