    Hey Everyone!
    Myself and my boyfriend Michael have just booked the European Whirl, Departing London on the 29th April, However we’ll be joining the tour in Amsterdam.
    Michael will be celebrating his 23rd Birthday on day 7 of the tour, Prague to Munich, and I’ll be celebrating my 26th Birthday on the last day transferring from Paris to London.
    We’ll be staying in London for two nights before heading back to Amsterdam to catch our flights home.

    Really excited! Cant wait………

    Hey, I’m signed up for the April 27th departure date for the European Whirl. And when I look on the tour dates there isn’t one for April 29th. So would we all be on the same tour? Or am I just not seeing your tour date? LOL

    Hey,

    I believe the departure date is the 27th but the actual tour starts on the 29th. What I mean by that is: from what I understand, the first night is meet up at the hotel and it has a welcome night from Contiki. Hopefully that makes a bit of sense.

    Oh okay thanks! Well then I guess I am on the same tour as you guys! I am 20 years old but will be turning 21 in 2 weeks and am from Barrie, Ontario! I am leaving Canada on the night of April 26th so I arrive in London on April 27th at 7am! I am staying after the tour in England until June 1st because I have a bunch of family there that I will be staying with!

    Hey Vanessa,

    It’s nice to see another Canadian coming on the trip! Are you flying out of Toronto then? I haven’t booked my flight yet (ie I haven’t actually received flying times yet). Maybe we’ll be on the same flight?

    Hey Katie,

    Yes, I’m flying out of Toronto. My flight leaves on April 26th at about 7pm I think. I didn’t arrange my flight through Contiki though, I did it though a seperate travel agent. I had a friend who did this tour last summer and she said the flights through Contiki were kind of expensive and that she could have got a much cheaper one herself so I decided to just do it myself! Yah, that would be great! Have you decided if you want to go a few days before the tour starts? I’m looking forward to getting to see the sights of London before the tour starts!

    I haven’t decided what I am doing for flights yet. It was going to be cheaper to go through Contiki when I was looking into it but I haven’t taken a look at it lately. Maybe I’ll try to get on the same flight as you then we can sight see together :) I haven’t decided when I’m leaving Canada yet either – maybe I’ll try to do the 26th and then I’ll have the whole day on the 27th to tour around.

    Yah, that’d be fun :) It’d be nice to have someone to do the sight seeing with! Do we meet up with the rest of the tour group on the 28th? I’m glad I found this discussion, I had been looking on the Contiki facebook group but hadn’t really found anyone yet so I was getting worried I wasn’t going to get to talk to anyone else on the tour before going! It’s getting so close, I can’t wait!

    I believe we meet up on the 27th with everyone else at the hotel. I know we were talking about going out for drinks the first night and you’re welcome to join us :D

    I didn’t even know there was a Contiki facebook group so maybe that’s why there aren’t many people on it.

    I know it’s so close – I’ve started counting down :) I just have to finish up my last term at school first though :/
