    Hi Debs,
    Lol don’t think you’ll be the only one, there will be others joining no doubt at same time as yourself.
    Don’t be frightened contiki is a great way to meet new people and make new friends all over the world even if most of the travellers are aussies :-)
    Think this tour is a guaranteed departure so at least don’t have to worry about cancellations. Well look forward to meeting everyone not to long to go now.

    Hi guys I noticed you did this tour last september… im leaving in a week and a half, second contiki tour this year, just wondering how the weather was, how the trip was, any advice for me and fellow travellers on this tour…. all the advice would help!!!

    Hey Hunter, it’s a great trip! You’ll have an amazing time!! Especially if Paddy is your tour manager :) The weather was cold but not ‘my toes are going to fall off under three layers of socks’ cold. A good jacket and you’ll be fine. My advice would be to talk to as many locals as you can! Especially when in their local pub! The scottish and irish are some of the best folk I’ve had the pleasure of meeting :)
