Im looking at booking the 5th April tour. Im taking 5 months off to travel and America is my first stop, travelling solo.
I wanna go on the 2nd of Feb 2012! just wondering how much money that i will defiantly need has anyone worked this out at all??
Hey explorer1266789, You need to book contiki tour (approx $4k for Grand Southern?), flights (depends where you’re flying from?) and then I’m thinking maybe $3-5k spending money depending on what you wanna do and see (keeping in mind that most of the optionals you wanna do have to be paid when you get there too). I’ve heard $100 a day will get you the basics, more if you are a shopping addict like me :P I’ve also decided to stay in LA for 2 days beforehand so booked accom through contiki for that ($70 a night as the ritzy Kyoto Hotel and Gardens) and also stay in NYC for 3 days after ($50 a night i think at a place I’ve forgotten, oops). All in all, I am preparing to come back completely broke, but incedibly happy :)
Hey Tegz! when are you going? i want to do the same with staying in LA first and staying in NYC at the end! im from adelaide :)
oh i just seen you wanna head at the same time lol!
