    It’s definitely okay to travel alone, I will be September 2011.

    its normal to go alone, most people on the tours do, I did earlier this year. As long as you aren;t anti-social you’ll make friends.

    Hi Stefani,
    I travelled alone with contiki in Aug. on the Euro Encounter, there were about 17 other people on their own as well. We all got along quite well and had a blast! It also has to do with how well your group gets along and your TM, ours was great!
    I’m sure you’ll have a good time!

    I was thinking of doing one of the US trips alone as well (and maybe meet up withe some buddies who won two greencards 2 years ago) and would love to have some feedback !
    As far as traveling to Europe is concerned, I would advise you to go in June because you are more likely to have great weather (which is imo quite important, you can certainly find a website indicating the weather trends for each country you’re planning to stay in !)

    hey stefani, i just finished the European Panorama, it was AWESOMe i had the time of my life, best thing ive ever done, and i did it alone, Just be yourself and you will make friends so quickly, i made some amazing friends on my tour. The trip went for 28 days we had 2 busses and there was no one older than 30 on there but most people were around 23.

    With Contiki you are never alone once you check-in in London to the time you leave the bar after the trip back in London.
