    Hey Julie,

    I randomly came across this site this morning as I am also looking into a Greek Island Holiday in September. I was more looking into that details of a potential trip and saw your comment so thought I would get in touch and say hi.
    Would be good to chat to you about this trip as I would be travelling by myself too.
    Hopefully hear from you soon :-)

    Oh cool! So are you already booked, or still trying to decide when/what trip?

  • 13 Jun 2011 Explorer1259347 said


    No, i havent booked anything as of yet. I was just weighing up my options as a lot of my friends have done the whole island hopping trip through Greece and they said it was amazing. Have you booked or are you looking to do a European Trip ?
    Are you on Facebook by anychance ? Could carry on chatting to you there if you’ed prefer.

    No, I’m not on Facebook. :-( I’m already booked for this specific Greece trip. Have any of your friends done the Contiki island hopping trip? Where are you from?

    Hey, I have been living and working in London for the last 7 years but am orginalliy from South Africa.
    Sounds good you must be really excited. I think that i may have left it a bit late but i am still entertaning booking a last minute trip. One of my good friends did the Contiki island hopping and he said it was brilliant. I went with some friends on a 10 day trip to some of the Greek Islands ( Santorini , Ios and Mykonos ) about 4 years ago and have been wanting to do it again ever since.
    What is your intinery like and when do you leave ?

    Hi Amanda, Joanne & Julie,

    Hey people!! I’m Sarah in Canada and I’m going on this trip solo…
    Is anyone arriving at the airport at 10-ish Sunday morning and want to take the bus together????

  • 9 Sep 2011 kellyjade said


    Hi everyone,

    I am currently in transit at the moment and arrive into Athens on Saturday about 6pm, staying at the same hotel the tour starts from as well. Maybe a pre-tour dinner and drinks for everyone who is there already??

  • 9 Sep 2011 Brendan said


    Hi Kelly,

    I’m already at the hotel! If you/anyone else would like to catch up when you get here for dinner or a drink, just ask the reception if you could speak with me over the phone & we’ll arrange a time to meet at the bar/reception :)
