16 Jun 2011 Rachel asked


Anyone else going on this tour?

I posted this awhile ago, but im sure its hard to find in this forum, so thought i would start it fresh again!!!

    I am going on that tour but not the dates you posted. I will be doing the July 15th tour. I am so excited & cannot wait.
    I’ve always wanted to go see those countries.

    :-) I will let you know how my tour experience was :-)

    I can’t wait either but its still so far away! Lol.
    That would be great to know your experience was :) how much have you budgeted for if you don’t mind me asking? I’m still unsure what a good amount is to take!

    I actually don’t know either!
    I am actually researching that this week on how much euros and pounds to take. I will be in London an extra 2 days before hand, and in Rome, I will be there one day extra after the tour ends—
    I will figure that out this week— because one euro is worth $1.67— so that definitely needs to be planned.

    Hi there, I am doing the August 19th departure. I am stokked and cant wait! As far as budget i was planning on $2500 dlls and exchange euros/pounds at the airport for exchange unit. Does that seem enough for London, Paris, and Roe??

    HI Rach and Jules!

    Im going on the same trip!! London to Rome, can’t wait! Where are you girls from?
    My friend and i (joey) are from Brisbane. We have been trying to work out how much to take as well, i think for the contiki part of our trip we’ll take about $3000 australian, but we are keen shoppers :)

    I’m from brisbane as well and I’m going solo!! So glad to know there are some other girls on the trip!

    I am taking at least $3,000 but could end up taking about $4,000 as I am a keen shopper as well!!! :)

    I’m from NSW (Newcastle) and am also going solo!

    I’m trying to save as much as possible before I go but it’s not really working. I keep buying more things for the trip!!!

    Can’t wait to escape the Aussie winter!
