    YAY so many people doing this tour already, im travelling on my own so pretty nervous first trip overseas but cant wait!!

    Theres no need to be worried. You will make plenty of friends. I’m also going solo on this trip. I just finished a contiki tour of New Zealand that I did solo. I made so many many good friends that I’m actually going to nstay with them in Canada when the tour ends.

    yea ive had a few friends who’ve done tours solo and said it was the best way to do it, its good to hear so many positives about travelling on contiki that way
