    Hey All,

    My name is Victoria, 24 from Canada. I am looking into to booking this Contiki trip, I am extremely excited. But, nervous not knowing what to expect! Has anyone previously done a Contiki camping trip? Any words of wisdom!!?
    I did a Contiki of New York City last summer, but needless to say, it was far from ‘roughing’ it!!

    As for running with the bulls…. consider me your photographer! ha! This farm kid knows, BULLS ARE BIG AND MEAN!!! :d

    Talk soon,

    hey does anyone want to share a twin room at the Royal National the night before we leave, save some cash?

  • 10 May 2009 ronniemuff said


    hey victoria this will be my first contiki trip so sorry i cant offer any words of wisdom
    i have gone camping before but i have a feeling this could be a fair bit different in a good way of course!

    hey jared ive booked into a three person room at the royal national hotel 2 days before and 1 day after the tour to save on cash! you can grab a bed there if ya havnt booked yet

  • 11 May 2009 Victoria24 said


    Hey All,
    Ryan, I think you might be right! This is going to be a different style of camping that is for sure!

    Where is everyone else that booked this tour?! There are only 5 of us on here!!
    Talk soon!

    Hey Ryan, do you mean you have a triple with two spare beds? If so, that’d be great to share with you, and I’ll just split the bill with you… Why did you get a triple if you’re going by yourself? Did someone dog you?

  • 14 May 2009 ronniemuff said


    gday jared im not sure how it all works when i booked the tour i also booked the room they offered me a bed in a triple room for about $69 per night and the chick said that they would probly put people from the same tour in the same room

  • 15 May 2009 AussieJared said


    Ah, fair enough, I booked mine through a travel agent and she didnt say anything about that… Maybe I should send them an email, thanks mate

    Hi everyone
    My name is Richard, 25 and im from Durban South Africa. Travelling on my own as it appears most of you guys are. Ive never been on a Contiki before. Cannot wait for 7 July to roll buy.

    Hey Ryan i agree, i think running of the bulls is gonna be awesomw, but im most excited about the four nights in Corfu island!!

  • 27 May 2009 ronniemuff said


    hi Richard yeah i agree corfu sounds awesome nice weather , watersports and plenty of beers should be some good times! lets not forget about Liechtenstein! ha ha

  • 28 May 2009 AussieJared said


    hey guys so i’ve now booked into a triple share room for the 6th July and 7th August Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    i honestly don’t know if i can pick a place i’m looking forward to the most but pamplona/running of the bulls should be mental.

    i fly out for europe on monday, looking forward to it so much, so i guess i’ll see you all at the royal national on the 6th for the pre departure meeting!

  • 9 Jun 2009 AussieJared said


    so is it still just the 5 of us that are going? thats a pretty small group haha… nah im sure there’s more… so anyway im in london now, having come via dubai, both great cities!

    looking forward to the glastonbury festival and budapest before coming back to london town to meet up with you friendly folks Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
