    Октовберфест – класная тема. Правда там пъют много пива, а это вредит здоровью человека. Более подробно можно прочитать на сайте о здоровье человека

    Ah cool, there are two buses leaving London that day and they’re both full :-D

    Are you doing any other tours or sightseeing while in Europe?

    I’m booked for the hostel version. I’m so excited. I’m leaving from London, and exploring Scotland and Ireland once I get back. I’m coming over alone, but I have friends in the camping tour.

    Hey Explorer, fellow Perthies and everyone else. Im looking to book my flights either this week or next week. Am I best to do the contiki tour (6 days either Hostel, Camping or Hotels) or just get a ticket for Oktoberfest and sort my own flights out etc. Doing the solo thing so Im very new to this. Im from Perth too Explorer. What date u leaving Perth?

    Hey Chucky,
    From what I’ve read it can be very difficult/expensive trying to get accommodation in Munich during Oktoberfest. These tours are quite cheap and easy in comparison to trying to DIY, at the very least you’re on a bus with a bunch of other people who you can meet on the way to Munich and also the camping grounds and hostel will be full of other Contiki travellers as there are a bunch of buses heading over for Oktoberfest (I think 6 buses leave London on 20/9/12 for the camping and hostel tours).

    As for Camping vs Hostel vs Hotel, if you’re into camping than that might be a very unique experience and I bet the camping grounds will be absolute madness. I went with the Hostel because I’ve heard the Hostel Contiki uses is very high quality (International Haus) and is not much more than the camping tour (extra $AUS150 over 7 days).

    Hey Lance: how far along are you in your plans to tour Scotland and Ireland? I was looking to go before this tour but I’ve now only got 2 free days between my Topdeck tour and this one so I won’t have time. Going after this seems like a good idea. I have to get to Dublin for the Guinness factory and Temple Bar ;-)

    Scott, I fly back to Vancouver on the 7th of October. I don’t have any solid plans or exact dates. Spending some time in London visiting a couple friends. Then with 2 of my canadian friends (they are in the camping tour) we are off to Edinburgh, Glasgow and Dublin before I say good bye and head home, it’s the plan in motion anyways. Maybe I’ll do Stonehenge too!
