    Hi I’m Davina from Perth- I’m booked on this tour starting in LA September 9 2011, travelling alone.

    I’m looking at staying on for a few more days in New York if all goes to plan!

    Hi there, Yay finally someone else who is going on the tour! Im staying in LA a night before the tour, and at this stage one night in NYC after but hoping for a few more days…just waiting to work out whether im visiting a friend just over the border in canada or whether he may come to NYC in which case i’ll spend a bit more time there, hoping to go from NYC to miami for a few days before back to LA and home. End of the trip is a bit all up in the air though. Are you one facebook or anything like that? have you ever been on a tour like this before?

    I’m hoping to stay two or three nights extra in New York so I can do some serious shopping!!!

    I haven’t done a Contiki before, but I have been to the US previously (all be it when I was 12) and have travelled alone in Australia previously.

    I’m on facebook – Davina Lonsdale.

    Hi – My name is Peter from Sydney, I just booked this tour (this is my 2nd Contiki adventure – previously tackled Europe in 2008), traveling solo. I plan to stay 2-3 extra nights in NY on completion and arrive 1 day before in LA

    Hi Peter, so far im staying in LA the night before the tour and have booked a night in NYC after. I plan on staying in NYC for about 4-5 days after. Aside from Davina a friend of mine has also decided to join us. Hope you’re well.

    Hi is it Hope? That sounds awesome! I haven’t booked flights/Accom as yet since it isn’t a definite departure date as yet, although I anticipate arriving in LA on the 8th (early morning). Are you on Facebook?

    Btw did you send me a private message? I got an email notification but have no idea how to open it

    Hi Guys,

    I’m also looking at jumping on this tour. It looks fantastic. I am planning to arrive in LA a day before, and then continue on in NYC a few days after the tour is over. I will be travelling solo.

    Hi Guys,

    I am looking at booking this tour when I get home from work next week, I can’t wait!! My name is Louise, I am 21 and from Perth. This is my second contiki, I did the European Panorama in 2009 with my sister. I will be doing this trip solo though. Will probably arrive in LA on the 7th and will spend an extra 4 days in NY once the tour is over. Then I am heading to Canada for a week and a half to visit my old contiki friends who live there. The tour now shows up as a confirmed departure which is great!! You can find me on facebook, my full name is Louise Dickson.

    Hi Louise, im having trouble finding you on facebook. You’re lucky getting to go to canada afterwards…i had hoped to as i have a french canadian friend there, however money and time wont permit so he’s coming to see me in New York instead! Can’t wait for this holiday, counting down the months xx

    Hi guys,

    Im hoping to get onto this tour but it will depend on the dates I can get off work. Hoping to find out in a week or so. Im from adelaide and have done 4 american tours before. I’d prefer to do a different tour but a couple of my friends want to go and see only those cities. Theyre all awesome so im keen to go back and see and do stuff I missed out on the first time. I’ll probably go to Hawaii for a week after the tour to unwind.

    Good to see someone else from Adelaide on a tour. The ones I’ve done there was just me and 1 other from Adelaide. I’ll hopefully get to go on this one, otherwise it’ll be one of the other sept/oct departures. I’ll keep you updated.

    Hi Guys,

    I’m looking at joining this tour. It sounds amazing. I’m Jess, 26 from Perth and I will be travelling solo. Ideally I will be staying on in NYC for a few days after the tour is over. Looking forward to it.

    Hi Ashlie, im from adelaide also, semi travelling solo, nervous also…when i booked it was solo but i may have a friend coming with me. what date is your birthday? i’ll be celebrating my 25th in NYC. this trip is pretty much my present to myself :). I hope you save the money so you can join us. ive just booked flights and only paid the deposit for the tour. will be saving to the last minute but i think it’ll be worth it.
