    Amy,

    The group meets up for the first time at the pre tour meeting at the Skyline Hotel NY, the night before the tour starts. How long were you looking at being in NY for before the tour?

    Hi Everyone,
    I am also doing this trip, but i’m only doing the first quarter really (North by North East), so from NY to Chicago. I think I will regret not doing the whole thing!

    We were talking to our travel agent yesterday and she said the minimum a Contiki tour has to have to go ahead is really small – like about 12 people. So it’s pretty safe to say the tour will go ahead :)

    12…lol can you imagine that We could have 2 seats each to spread out on lol..My last contiki the grand southern was full 52 people. lol

    Apparently that’s the minimum :). But it looks like we have other tours joining us and leaving us in certain parts…..

    My tour starts with yours and then stops. My last tour in Europe was shockers, it would be amazing to have 2 seats all to yourselves the whole trip! Sorry Ky my name is Jess btw.

    Hi Jess! Someone else said that their tour joins us partway along as well so there must be two tour groups joining us :)

    Hey, i booked and paid for the trip today, by the sounds of it from contiki there weren’t many places left so i wouldn’t worry about it not being a definite departure! I did the grand southern last year and had an amazing time, i was meant to be coming with a friend but she has completely let me down at the last minute so i’m on my own now! I wanted to spend at least a week in New York, week in LA and then go to San Fran but i haven’t booked my flights yet as i’m a bit worried about being on my own now after the tour.

    We are staying 6 nights in Anaheim after the tour and then on to San Fran too if that makes you feel any better? I can give you our flight details from LA to San fran if you want to catch the same flight?

    Hey thanks, thats really kind of you, i just added the event on facebook, i’m fran. I haven’t been to LA before, have heard it’s not that easy to get yourself around it, so not really sure what area to stay or for how long, but i’m so keen to go to San Fran, when are you getting to New York? The flight i was looking at gets me in on the 8th but i think i may leave it a little later now.
