Pre-tour meeting NZ

27 Oct 2011 AlexG asked


Just wandering when the pre-tour meetings usually happen in NZ?? does it happen the day of the tour or does it happen the night before???

also im staying the night before and after the tour as well.... im very confused about this.
Any help or tips about this would be fantastic.

    It is usually tour/location specific, the tours that leave early in the morning have it the night before at about 6.30 and the tours that leave at midday/arvo have it the morning of the tour. It does tell you in the contiki pack you receive about a month before departure.

    Hi Alex, I’m doing grand explorer on 11th November so not long to go! I think lots of people stay at the hotel that you meet at the night before, so usually you can meet people on your tour the night before.
