    We booked in September lol! Im so excited – we are flying to London a few days early to have a look around. Neither of us have ever been overseas before, so it should be a good experience! It looks like the tour is listed as a definite departure, and it wasn’t before so there must be more people now. I don’t know what to expect on tour lol

    We are also flying to London about 5 days before the tour starts :) and yes this is our first contiki tour as well…. also not sure what to expect…. will take it as it comes :)

    however, i wonder where everyone else is that booked this tour? or maybe the’re not as excited…. haha

    Hello everyone,
    I took the plunge and have booked onto this tour today. I am very excited and as I have never travelled alone before am also slightly nervous. Really looking forward to the trip and will be counting down the days.
    I am from London and live and work here. Although I have been to two of the cities on our tour before, I can’t wait to go again as they are both amazing places to visit.

    I will join the facebook page.

    Look forward to meeting you all on the trip of a lifetime!!! :) I really, really, really, really can’t wait!!
