    Hi! I’m also on this tour starting April 9 in London :) Starting to get a bit excited now!

    Lucy – awesome! where are you flying in from? my flight arrives in london from NYC at 11am on the 9th.

  • 14 Mar 2011 LucyM2011 said


    I’m arriving from Melbourne at about lunchtime on the 8th, so I have a bit of recovery time before the tour starts

    Are you doing Amsterdam or an extension of Paris after the tour is over? I’m adding Amsterdam to my tour package tomorrow.. figured I might as well do a day and a half there while I’m already overseas.

    I hope more people from our tour group come on and introduce themselves!

    Hi guys,

    Me and my boyfirend Clinton are joining this tour too, we are extending to Amsterdam at the end. We are heading off to start our trip in UAE in 10 days, so getting very excited/stressed getting last minute things planned!

    Hey! My friend and I are coming on the trip too! We’re going to England early (arriving on the 8th) and we’re staying an extra night in Amsterdam!! It’s getting closer now :)
    can’t wait!

    I just changed my trip to include the Amsterdam extension! I hope there are more people doing this trip so I can explore the city with others. (I’m not much of a partier, so hopefully I’m not left behind lol)

    I’m doing the paris extension, then spending a couple of extra days in Paris after that as well. Amsterdam sounds great :)

    Hey everyone!! Thomas from NJ on the trip as well. For you guys that booked the extra night(s) in Amsterdam, what’s the name of the hotel?

  • 18 Mar 2011 Alanna said


    I think the hotel in Amsterdam is called Blue Square, but that’s just based on a google search I did… not sure if it’s the same hotel for every contiki tour.

  • 18 Mar 2011 Sezz said


    I have my itinerary, and your right Alanna, the hotel is called Blue Square.

    Hi all, I’ll be joining you on this trip but im extending by one day in Paris, sadly its all I have time for. I’ll be in London 1st-3rd of April, then Liverpool for a couple of days, then off to Scotland for 5 days. If anyones around and wants to catch up for a drink to ‘break the ice’ before meeting up reply here or I’ll join the FB group!
    Cant wait!!

    Hi Alanna,

    I’m going on this tour this summer. Just wondering if your itinerary says when you’ll be returning from Versailles and what day Versailles and the Moulin Rouge are.
