    I have booked this tour as well! Where is everyone coming from? I am 28 coming from Toronto and this will be my first Contiki tour and first time travelling solo. Is anyone arriving in London early? I will be arriving on either May 21 or 22 and staying in a hostel for a couple of nights.

    Hi Cheryl, I’m coming from Sydney Australia. My second Contiki after I went to new Zealand last year and I’m also flying solo – you’ll find a lot of people do – but you make friends pretty quickly once on the bus. I am getting into London early also – but staying at a hotel in the northern suburbs – I have every day planned out already – I’m so excited! Be good to meet you in a month or so?

    I arrive at London on the 21st of May and staying at the Royal National Hotel before this tour starts.

    I’m arriving on the 21st as well – looks like it’ll be a busy day at heathrow!

    Tell me – is anyone feeling brave about the haggis? I’m thinking it may just be something I have to do – that and the deep fried mars bar!

    I think I will be flying into Gatwick. It is a lot cheaper for me to fly in there instead of Heathrow. I was thinking about staying at the Royal National before the tour, but figured I would meet more people if I stayed in a hostel, so I’m not sure what I’m going to do yet. Well, since my background is Scottish and I have never tried haggis, I think I probably will give it a try!

    After tons of hours researching flights, hostels, B&Bs I have finally booked everything!! I am flying into Heathrow on the 21st, I will be arriving at 8:35am. When do you guys arrive? Then I am staying at the Royal National for 3 nights before the tour and one night after. So excited!!!!
