    Hey, yeah I have booked the LA part and I am staying at the Orchid Suites Hotel in Hollywood as it is pretty much central.Booked for the 23rd-25th here. Feel free to add me on facebook so we can get a group going :) Would be good to go and know some familiar faces :) You can find a link to my FB from my profile I think.

    Hey Becks, are you travelling by yourself as well?
    Is that accomodation near where the tour starts from, taylor? i might look into staying there too. Though is it near where the tour starts? coz if its like the europe contiki tours we will have to get up REALLY early already on the first day!

    and its odd how there is still only 4 of us on here where as the other tour i was looking at (starting on the 4th) has about 10-20 people.. perhaps the others on ours havent checked out the forums. I hope it fills up! the more the merrier.. lol

  • 29 Feb 2012 Tay91 said

    We can hope this fills up quickly plus I think it will be more exciting knowing that you finally get to go and meet all these people :). The tour starts at the Kyoto Grand in Downtown Hollywood but there is minimal stuff to do around there and I’m interested in seeing the walk of fame, Hollywood sign, rodeo drive, sunset strip etc and that is all on the doorstep of the hotel I’m staying at. Plus if you look on worldtaximeter.com you can price up taxis and I think it was around $30-40 USD one way to the other hotel and an early morning shouldn’t be too bad… hopefully the excitement of it all will get us up :) Also the price of the starting hotel is a bit expensive in my opinion. Moreover if some of us are around the same hotel we can split the taxi costs and it will be a bargain!! haha!!

    Also I found a link to a group which looks like our tour on facebook: https://www.facebook.com/groups/205224479572216/ :) That group has 10 members so far so we might actually have chance to meet some more people lol.

    Glad to see some others have booked this tour, so I won’t be on my own! I am travelling solo, arriving from Melbourne on 21st October and staying at the Kyoto Grand, hoping to see some of LA before the tour starts.
