    Hi Manica,
    My cousin & i aren’t going to London until the end of the tour, we are meeting up with the group in Paris, as we have a wedding to attend in Paris the day the tour departs London :) we arrive in Paris on the 30th May. Are you spending any time in London at the end of the tour? If so where are you staying? we are spending 3 or 4 nights there before flying home.

    Wow really a wedding in Paris that sounds beautiful! We arive on the 28th of may so London for nearly a week and then after the tour we are actually going back to Paris for four days so no no time in London after the tour. I hope it’s really nice weather when we are there! Not having much of a summer here at the moment ha :(

    Hi everyone :) i’m interested in going on this tour (Greek Islands cruising) option departing on the 3rd June 2012. Visited the travel agent today and just waiting to get my quote back. It looks like an amzing tour with a great itinerary! Haven’t been on a Contiki tour before and this will be my first big trip travelling solo.
