Do the China tours ever fill up?

8 Feb 2012 ShaneM asked


I have heard lots of good things about contiki and how awesome the tours are.

I am very interested in China but looking at a recent cancellation of a tour in April and that none seem to fill up are they not that popular?

Would appreciate some feedback from anyone who has been... and if people are reading this thinking of going let me know some dates and we can get a group going.

    Hi. I’ve booked for the may 14th china tour.

    If you were looking at tours for April for China, the April 16th just got confirmed, and I am going on that!
    I know that the china adventure is a fairly new tour to contiki, so that might be the reason!

    Shane – if you’re booking definitely look for the guaranteed departures – my May 28th departure got cancelled and I had to switch to the May 14th.

    Carla89 – I’m now on the same tour as you! This is my 3rd Contiki but first time to Asia, so really excited! Have you done Contiki before?

    If all goes to plan, I will be booked on the 14 May departure this afternoon.
    Exciting times!

    I’m booked for the May 14 China tour. Super excited, my first tour with contiki and I’m traveling by myself. Those of you going in April let us know how it goes…

    Hey Shane
    I’m booked for the 29th October (along with at least one other person I found in the forums)
    Doesn’t have definite departure, so I hope we get the numbers needed!

    Hey Shane I’m going on the same tour as Carts. I think they need a minimum of 21 to kick the tours off. I heard the 29th October may be the best contiki crew yet :).

    has anyone booked a 12 days china adventure commencing on 25th June 2012 or knows anyone that is traveling that date?

    Well since you guys have all done this tour now, im wondering whether your tours booked up? are the tours the same sizes as the european and american ones? ive done both a europe one and a USA one.. i loved the big group sizes. I just booked in for October this year so if anyone has an info for me about it that would be great! especially those of you that went in october last yr!
