    Hi Luke it’s good to know others are travelling solo so I’m not the only one! I haven’t booked it yet but will do over the next couple of days. How do you add any of the extra excursions like the Whitsunday sailing? I think you are on the same trip as I am looking at but the Whitsunday Sailing is extra. It’s sounds like an amazing tour!

    Hey Samantha, Sounds awesome it will be good, you can save 20% off the total amount if you book early on the 2nd october go the beaches and reefs with whitsunday sailing it is all included in one package starting sydney and ending in cairns it is around $1900 but included like meals, accommodation and travel plus sailing. the extra optional activities you pay when the trip starts, where are you from?

    Hi Luke. Ok that sounds great thank you. Can’t wait to get it all booked up. Need to sort flights out too. I’m from Essex in England so it’s a long way for me to come. I’ve never been to Australia before but always wanted to!! Have you been speaking to any others going on this trip?

    Hey, Cool it is my first big adventure going solo, but am looking more forward to having so much fun, not long to go now, England is a long way but will be worth it, Australia is a beautiful place can’t wait to see the Great Barrier Reef, yeah I have spoken to another girl who will be on the same trip beaches and reefs with sailing (sydney to cairns) she is coming from the U.S also travelling solo, can’t wait to meet new people, need a holiday desperately, just finshed paying for everything.

    Hey guys,

    My name’s Wayne and I’m from Montreal CA. I booked this tour a couple of weeks ago and am super psyched for October to roll around! I’m also traveling solo but this is my second Contiki trip and I found that most people on the last tour were solo as well so don’t feel nervous. I’ll be arriving in Sydney the morning of the 29th. Have any of you received your info package yet? I’m still waiting for mine.

    Wayne
