    how many days/nights is this trip?

  • 4 Jul 2011 Nik said


    @ Brenton P ~~> London, Paris and Paris extension. I stay in Paris for two extra days

    @Debz86 ~~> The tours with the extensions are a little longer (10days/8 nights) instead of the standard 8 day/ 6 night tours but it depends on which trip you choose.

    eyy all… looks like I’ll be joining you on this trip (so I’d thought I’d get conversation going again). I’m doing the Paris extension; I’d go to Rome, but I was there last year (awesome city). I’m from just outside of Toronto, Canada and I’m travelling solo. Can’t wait to go on this trip (y).

    Hey everyone!
    Sounds like this trip is going to be all Aussies and Canadians. I’m Maddy, 21, and travelling with my boyfriend Brodie, 23. We’re from Victoria, Australia. Getting very excited, our tour is less than two months away!
    Anyone getting to London early?

  • 5 Sep 2011 Ryan B said

    Yeah, it looks like the Aussies out number the Canadians thus far, but I’m sure we will get a nice mix of a bunch of countries on this trip.

    I’ll be heading out to London a day early to catch a few sites I may not get to see on the tour.

    Hey Everyone…I’m going on Lon + Par and then venturing out on my own…will be touching Rome so I know I’ll be picking your brain, RMB97…I’m American (seems like a minority thus far) 28…travelling solo…47 days cant pass fast enough..looking forward to it

    Hey Urfa, good to see more people introducing themselves before the trip. I’d be glad to give you some advice on what to do “when in Rome”. Like I said above it’s an awesome city and I do plan on going back one day (just not this year). To start off, you must go to Vatican City and Vatican Museum, it’s an amazing sight to see. If you want to know more just send me a pirvate message and/or we can talk on the trip.

  • 13 Sep 2011 Urfa said


    Thanks RMB87, I’ll let you know..right now just trying to get the train schedules straight…and of course Vatican City is an absolute must…will you be taking any of the optional tours for Lon + Par?…

  • 13 Sep 2011 Ernie said


    So wait is London, Paris and Amsterdam almost the same as London, Paris and 2 day extension? Of course while you stay in Paris I’ll be off to Amsterdam?

    Just checking…

    Hey Erndog, I believe it’s the same as London, Paris and Amsterdam. The London and Paris part is the same for everyone and then there is the option to extend your stay in Paris or go to Amsterdam or Rome. So you will be joining us? Where are you from?
