    Hello Becky,

    Three friends and I will be going on this trip. Are you traveling alone?

  • 18 Feb 2008 Becky said


    Actually, I am travelling with my boyfriend. Did you book already? If so, did you book through an agency? Good to hear that someone else is going. I am so excited-I read through the forum almost everyday! Have you done a contiki trip before?

  • 20 Feb 2008 Explorer1085692 said


    Yes, we all booked about a month ago. I used my travel agent, since she has booked trips with contiki before. I have never been on a contiki trip or europe before, but I have heard wonderful things. So I am very excited!! We are coming one day early so we can see more of London. Where are you from?

  • 20 Feb 2008 Becky said


    Representing Boston, Massachusetts. We are planning on going 1 day early too. I’m hoping that it will help with the jet lag. We’ll see if that actually pans out. I haven’t booked yet. I’ve been going back and forth with my travel agent. (I’m going a little nuts.) Where are you guys from? Also I’ve been wondering whether people will be going back to London at the end or flying out of Paris. What will you be doing?

    I would love to but I can’t take more than 1 weekend off from work. Which is how I came up with these dates.

    My girlfriend and I are booked for this trip! We’re from Columbus, OH.

    Hi everyone! My name is Susie and I will be traveling with my friend Ebruvwiyo. It’s nice to be able to introduce ourselves here.

    We are spending 2 days in London before the tour and flying out of Paris. It makes more sense to me than spending all day driving back to London, only spending the night there and flying out in the morning. The cost is comprable too.

    Hey there,
    I’m going to be on this trip too! My name is Beth…from San Diego, CA… and travelling alone. I arrive in London on Sunday the 14th. Susie, and anyone else, maybe we can meet up on Sunday or Monday…???

  • 21 May 2008 Susie said


    Beth, where are you staying for your pre-nights? Royal National or Imperial? I found a street fair on the river Thames Sunday night-with fireworks!!! You should join us. Anyone else?

  • 23 May 2008 Explorer1085692 said


    We are leaving the states on Sept 14th and we get in London at 6am on the 15th. We are staying at the Imperial Hotel.

  • 27 May 2008 Explorer1100124 said


    Hey Susie, I haven’t booked my pre-nights yet. Where are you guys staying? Street fair on the Thames sounds cool. We should definitely meet up … & hopefully others will join too (Gwen? Anyone?)!!! Beth

  • 27 May 2008 Susie said


    We are staying at the Royal National for our 2 prenights. It was slightly cheaper and I figured we could do one more touristy thing with the money saved.

    If anyone else is coming in Sunday- here’s the link to the festival.
    Interested in seeing a West End show on Monday or Tuesday night? I work in technical theatre and am hoping to see atlest one show. I may be able to get great seats thru a connection…?? Email me

    We are coming from Sacramento, CA. With a layover in Philly, getting to London around 11am Sunday.

    Hi all! My roommate and I are booked on this tour, coming from Orlando, FL. We’re flying in on the 14th for a little extra London time, as well. We’re staying the pre-night at the Imperial and flying out of Paris instead of heading back.
    Just a little less than 100 days…
