    I am also going on this tour! I can’t wait :)
    are you travelling by yourself? I am, so it would be good to get to know other people on this tour before we go. where are you from?

    I am going to be travelling on my own also! I’m from Newcastle, a little nervous but at the same time really excited. I’ve been reading the forums for tips and things, even though its so far away. Where abouts are you from? Are you flying over early at all?

    woohuuu cant wait, i am also going on this tour :) also travelling alone !

    Oh thats good,I was worried I would be the only person travelling alone.I’m from the Gold Coast. I arrive in london on the 15th of May, so I have a few days in London before the tour starts.when do you get there? Yeah I’ve been looking through the forums too, are you going to do all of the optional things they offer?

    i think there will be a far bit of people travelling alone. Im coming from New Zealand and am coming into London about then too ! Not to sure havent really looked that hard yet tbh haha

    I think I get there on the 15th as well. Very exciting! Ive budgeted for doing all the optionals and haven’t done much research to see what I’d prefer to do instead, so it looks like I will end up doing them at this stage. What about you? I’m glad to see there will be a few of us then! I’ve heard it is good to go on these tours by yourself so you get a better chance to make friends. I think my problem will be packing lightly enough!

    Yeah I have bugeted to do all the optionals, so I will probably do pretty much all of them. I know I will defiantly over pack, lol. I’m so excited, can’t wait! :)

    I will be staying in one of the Contiki hotels recommended when I booked the tour. The one which we meet at, for convenience. Is anybody else going a little early for this tour?

  • 20 Feb 2012 Teaspoon89 said


    Royal National Hotel. Its got the Contiki basement or whatever its called underneath it. Pretty cheap.
