Europe Contiki June/July 2012

8 Aug 2011 Nicole1273618 asked


Hi, I know its a while away but I just wanted to see if anyone is also planning a European Contiki next year for June/July (2012). So far I like the 'London to Athens' tour......:)

    I’m considering the Croatia Island Cruising tour. I have been to Croatia twice before and fell in love, but this tour goes to many of the islands that I have yet to explore. Just have to work up the nerve to travel solo for the first time in 24 years!

    Hey everyone…
    I’m leaning towards the ‘London to Athens + Greek Island Hopping’ – 33 days. I’ve had a look at the Adventurer, Contrasts and Experience and think I’m happy with the time spent and not too many countries with the ‘London to Athens etc’ . Nnow just to book which departure date???

    ps ‘Contrasts’ looks good too though…

    I’m doing the contrasts on 24th June. its my first time heading to europe, so i want to get as much outta the trip without it dragging on. the only place we spend a decent amount of time is Corfu, but i doubt there will be much time to get bored haha.
    theres a group on Facebook for all those heading over in June/July 2012

    I did Contrasts four years ago and I can highly recommend it. I doubt too much has changed since then.

    It’s a good mix of time to see the major sights, as well as time to party. In particular, the camp sites are great, with all the facilities you need, and probably more practical than the hotels!

    It was so good in fact, that I’m coming back next year to do Adventurer from 11 May.

    I’m going on the London to Athens tour in June 2012, I really liked that you get at least a day or two in each city, I like to take my time and enjoy the sites.

    I’m going on LOndon to Athens in June too!! What date are you going?

  • 9 Oct 2011 candicelancaster said


    Contrasts June 8!! Anyone else doing that?

  • 9 Oct 2011 Nicole1273618 said


    Hi Kate, When are you going and have you booked your tour as yet. It was hard choosing between the 3 alike tours BUT I am just waiting for the 33 day tour leaving 21 June to be confirmed otherwise I will go with 32 day tour leaving 1 July…. -wanted to go late June/early July to ensure better weather…

  • 10 Oct 2011 Kate411 said


    I had the same problem, there are so many great tours! I’ve booked the tour that goes from June 7th to the 29th, although I’m going a few days early to enjoy London. My tour unfortunately does not include the Greek island hopping, so it’s only 23 days not including the extra days in London and Athens.

    Hey again Kate…awwwwwwwww no Greek Islands..:( – thats means you have to do another tour once you get back…lol
