Ultimate European 2012

Anyone thinking of doing this tour in June/July/August 2012. I know its early but I was thinking of doing this tour either before or after the London Olympics. I am travelling solo which is exciting and scary at the same time. I have put my request in for Olympic tickets so just have to wait to see what I get.

    Hi, I am hoping to go to the London Olympics too… I’ll be traveling on my own and am looking for someone to met up with in London. I haven’t booked any tickets or anything yet. I have already been on a contiki European Panorama so I’m looking at doing something like Eastern Road after.. Not sure yet its too early to tell.

    I am possibly looking into this, whatever other solo travellers seem to be doing as I am on my own too and want to meet some people before the tour in London too :). Was scared Ultimate European would be too long on my own! I want to do a tour before the Olympics then do Ireland and Scotland after the Olympics, once again onmy own haha :). I am just going to buy my tickets at the gate for the equestrian as i think there will be some left
