Hi Guys
Just wondering if anyone else has booked to do this tour or has done it in the past and can offer some tips.
A friend and I have booked the March 28 departure and are super excited!! :)
We are thinking $100/day for spending money. Does that sound right?

    Oh ok, I could only find the 26th could be same tour though cos mines in anzac cove for anzac day to. Pretty much the reason I. chose it. That and like you said you get to see so much esp Egypt. Im traveling on my own. I’ve done a contiki alone before and lived it.
    Where are you from? I’m from melbourne.

    I live in the whitsundays in QLD. Iv never been overseas before. I was going to do the tour on my own, until my friend decided to come. She’s from England so we are going to travel around the UK and Ireland before we do the tour!! Im sure it is the same tour we are both looking at :) where was your last contiki tour? How was it? As i said, IV never been overseas, so I’m pretty excited about it all and love hearing other peoples experiences :)

    I went on an american contiki a couple of years ago and loved it. It was so much fun, you will love being on contiki! Thats why im going on another one, its just such a great experience. Ill be doing 5 days in London before the tour aswell and hopefully Eastern Road after it. Glad someone else chose Egypt to, heard alot of people go with the Greek Islands! Im excited to, and its really not that far away now!
