    Hi all, my girlfriend and I are from Tasmania, Australia, and are all booked in for the trip!
    Which side excursions are you all looking at doing?
    We did a Contiki in new Zealand at the start of this year and it was a crazy 10 days, so I am sure these 26 will be crazy too!
    See you all soon!

    Hi Everyone,

    I’ve booked this trip with my partner. We are recently married from Western Australia. I did Contiki Europe by myself a few years ago so this is my first tour with a tag along (lets hope he behaves himself!) Really looking forward it to it and meeting you all.
    Liane :)

    Liane, you’re like me…always travelled solo until I met my (now) husband…it’s, ahhhh, different LOL!

  • 23 Sep 2011 Tegz said


    AH! finally, people booking this trip! Woohoo! Does everyone have FB? I’ve made a page “Contiki Grand Southern La-Ny 02/02/2012” for us to use and then hopefully we’ll kind of already know some people when we arrive. Looking forward to meeting everyone! So excited!

    Doesnt Everyone have FB these days?
    Looks like Ill be arriving in LA mid afternoon on the 1st Feb, anyone have ideas of the best things to do in LA for a few hours before I pass out from jetlag? Wheres everyone staying the night before the trip starts? The Kyoto Grand?

    (Brissy guy but living in the Middle East atm)

    I’ve booked and paid for Southern Adventure starting 2nd Feb, is this the 1st half of the Grand southern that you guys are going on? I’m just going from LA to New Orleans. Travelling by myself so would love to get to know some of the people that are on my tour!
    Pretty excited – only 127 days to go!! (It sounds better when you say it in hours – 3048 to go!)
    —Also, I’ll be in LA from 28th Jan. Staying at Crown Plaza Beverly Hills but moving to the Kyoto Grand on the 1st so I can meet up with everyone else from the tour! So if anyone is looking for stuff to do or wants to meet up – I’m all for it!

  • 28 Sep 2011 Tones2012 said


    Hi Laura……Ill only be in LA from the 1st but will be staying at the Kyoto the night before we leave, so Im up for anything that afternoon or a couple drinks at the bar that night (pre tour drinks :) ) if anyones around as well :) Feel free to add me on FB :)

    Hey guys,
    My partner and I are from good old Adelaide and we’ll be coming too so it looks like it’s gonna be a bus full of Aussies :)
    We’ll be in LA from the 28th of Jan so if anyone gets bored and keen for some drinks/company just let me know.
    Are we the only ones not staying at The Kyoto Grand? :s

  • 14 Oct 2011 Laura89 said


    Don’t worry, I’m not staying at the Kyoto Grand either! I’ll be in LA from 28th also, staying at the Crown Plaza Beverly Hills until the 1st, then checking into the Kyoto for the tour.
    I’ll probably love some company for the days before the tour as I’m travelling alone. Maybe we can all catch up for dinner/drinks.
    My name is Laura Stott if you/anyone wants to add me on facebook! Roughly 109 days to go!!

  • 14 Oct 2011 Therese88 said


    We were going to stay there too but now we’re staying at The Magic Castle Hotel (stupid name I know but awesome location).

    There’s heaps of people with your name so I hope it’s you I’ve added :) My names Therese Harman just in case
