    Hi I’m thinking of doing this tour in either June or July, I was wondering if either of you had any idea as to how much money would be needed throughout the tour?

    Hi Vash & Kathryn,
    It would be nice if you guys decide on this trip.
    Kathryn, with regards to the money, I have to be honest, I am also not sure. Somewhere on the website I have seen people suggest 100 euro per day, but I am not sure if it counts for this trip. And since we will not only use euro I am a bit scared I take too little money. Well, I am gonna work on 100 euro per day.
    Hope to see you there. Let me know if you decided to join…

    Hi Clardyn & Kathryn.
    I have not given any thought to how much money i should carry as yet.
    I did a Contiki tour in 2008 (European Discovery) and 50Euro`s per day was more than enough for me.
    I didnt use this money for souvinir shopping etc, just for my lunches, suppers when not provided and refreshments. I did not drink on most nights so this could explain why 50Euro`s was adequate for me.
    I also planned on using my credit \ debit card if i was short of cash but luckily i wasnt.

    Kathryn are you also from South Africa?…. and yes it would be really nice to be on this trip :)

    Hi Clardyn & Vash,
    Thank you both for the information, the trip is looking highly possible just depends how quickly I can save money, and no I’m not from SA, I’m from England. Hope which ever tour you decide to do you all have a wonderful time!

    Hi, I am considering going on this tour for the July 13th segment. Has anyone been on this trip that can recommend anything or give advice to a first time contiki traveler?
