Hey Everyone! Ive registered for the southern trail on May 9/11...would love to hear from anyone else on this tour, or from anyone who has taken it before.

    Hey, I’ll be booking this trip in a few days…but just debating if i should book the London to Athens tour instead? It has the same itinerary, however, accommodations include hostels, hotels and cabins, instead of camping. But you save $780 with the southern trail and it is a day longer.

    But my friend n i are leaning towards southern trail :)

    ya im doing a tour with my dad for 12 days before this one and then another with my mom when this ends so saving the extra money is well worth it for me. I talked to one of the guys at contiki on the phone who guided a camp tour and you have tents and air mattresses so shouldn’t be too bad. plus how much fun would camping in europe be! hopefully you book it! let me know :)

    Hey guys, I’m also doing The Southern Trail and then Greek Island Hopping June 1st.
    Looking forward to it! I was also wondering if I should do the London to Athens tour instead…. but it’s really only your sleeping arrangements that are different….. see ya there!
