Hey, just wondering if anyone out there will be on this tour? It'll be my first Contiki and I'll be flying solo. Be good to chat to anyone else going on it as well as anyone who has been on it and can throw me some reviews??
Cheers
Dave

    We are from Sydney. We are doing a couple of weeks in Hawaii first then flying into LA for the tour. Hopefully it fills up soon! The people at Contiki tell me its one of the most popular tours so it should fill up quickly.

    Cool. The travel agent I spoke to went on this tour and said it was awesome. Other US tours have filled up already so hopefully this one does too. Hawaii will be great. I’m actually heading over the end of October with 3 mates. Stopover in Hawaii then about 10 nights in Vegas, then they will be off doin their own thing or heading home and I’ll be heading to LA for the tour. Can’t wait!

    Hey Benardoruas
    I’m heading to the states with friends but leave them and do the tour on my own. Are you traveling solo too? You from Australia?

    Hey Guys
    Sounds like there will be a few of us single travelers which should make it easier for us all. Anyone staying in LA before the tour starts? I am doing the LA Explorer for the 2 nights leading up to the LA to the Bay and thinking of being in Santa Monica for a couple nights before that too.
    Nice to meet you all

    Dave,

    I will arrive 2 days before the tour and booked 2 extra nights at the Contiki hotel.

    David

    Hey Bernardo
    I’ll be staying at the Contiki Hotel too for the 2 nights as part of the LA explorer. Might bump into you there. There might be a few others doing the same so we might be able to organise a meet up or something.

    hey i did this tour earlier this year and would love to give you guys some pointers
    firstly i would HIGHLY recommend the helicopter ride of the grand canyon, i did the shorter on and found it just as rewarding, its just something u need to see its breathtaking.
    secondly do the jeep tour in sedona i regret that i didn’t do this as ur in the town for 3hrs and there is not a great deal to do.
    if your tour guides name is Hannah she is fantastic and will show you an amazing time! if you have any other questions i would love to answer them
