    I’m looking at booking for this tour. Done a couple of Contiki tours over the years so know what to expect :)
    Travelling solo but that’s half the fun.
    @Hannahbeth you’ll have a great time and make plenty of new friends to visit nect time you travel

    I will also be on this tour and I am doing a BIG trip! I’ll be doing New York Undercover before this tour begins which will be following the Grand Southern tour I’ll be on, starting July 5th! I will also be going to San Fran and will be spending some time in LA after the Grand Northern as well as doing a stopover Hawaii! I can’t WAIT and I’m going solo :) I also did a 37 day European Adventurer with Contiki this year and I loved it and made some wonderful new friends!

    Sounds great I’ll be away for about 5-6 wks starting in San Fran (3 days) then New York (5 days), DC v(3 days) the Tour then back to LA for 4-5days then home :(…Booked my flights today and i’ll be booking on Mon for the tour

    28/F Newcastle. It will actually be my 29th birthday while I’m in LA so that should be fun :) Well, I am staying at the Contiki hotel for the night the tour finishes (Kyoto Grand), then moving onto the Holiday Inn on the Walk of Fame after that. I have a couple of day tours planned including Universal Studios, Hopon/off bus pass to see all the sights (mainly Santa Monica pier and a walk to Venice Beach), Madame Tussauds and a city tour including the Hollywood sign. I’m also hoping to get to the Citadel Outlets for some awesome cheap shopping, these has not too far away from the Contiki hotel. I’m also hoping to get tickets to some Late Night Talk show tapings. Not too sure about Knotts Berry Farm though

    I will also be celebrating my birthday, will be turning 24 the day we’ll be arriving in Las Vegas so I’ll be pretty keen to party up that night :P I will be staying at the Kyoto Grand 4 nights after the tour finishes before going to Hawaii. Sounds like you have it all planned, how you want to spend your time while you’re in LA that is :) I’ve been there before so I’m keen to try things I didn’t do last time, that’s why I mentioned Knotts Berry Farm, I am theme park mad haha! I would certainly do Univeral Studios/Disneyland again :) I’d really like to start a Facebook page for our tour! However, unless I have friends already I can add to the group, FB won’t allow me to create it lol I’m easy to find- ‘Alice Buzinskas’ – add me :)

  • 31 Jan 2012 tyler_1988 said


    Looking like it’s going to be an awesome tour! There’s 13 of us. Two of us have our birthdays on the tour (mine is day 2 so we’ll be in Boston I think). We’re doing a week in NYC before and a week in LA after.
