    Hi guys,
    I’m Pete from Sydney. We’ve just started an online postcard site so you can send your postcards straight to facebook or email and we’re trying to get the word out. We have postcards for the places you’re going so please spread the word around your tour. Thanks guys and safe travels!

    Hey Christine. I booked this tour the other day I am so keen for this trip. I’ve booked the grand southern which finishes in NY on October 1st. So I have a few
    Days to wander around NY before hand.

    Just happened to have come across this tour. My real name is Ed.

    I am actually from Southern California (not far from Los Angeles); was looking at a NZ tour as well. Though I’m getting up there in years (34-35) and about to be at the age where Contiki will be too old for me, but why not.

    A cross-country tour through the USA is something I haven’t done before, and I was born in the USA.

    Airfare for me is just a 1-way ticket flight away for me to start from LA to NYC (and be on the tour bus back home).
