Hi all, Just wondering if anyone on the discussions are going on this Contiki tour.

Im travelling solo on this trip and live in australia.

Am very excited/nervous and would like to meet some people and hear stories from people who have been on this in the past.

    Hi Scott, I have just booked on this Contiki tour, well the LA to the Bay part.

    I’m also travelling solo but from the UK. It’s my first Contiki so I’m nervous but very excited. I’m getting into Los Angeles the night before, how about you?

    Have you been in contact with anyone else from the tour? It would be great to know a few names and faces before we get there!

    Great! I can’t wait to meet everyone :D
    Aaron, you sound like a bit of an expert so you will have to give us tips on the stuff to do and to avoid.

    Diane – I’m arriving one day before the tour starts too, glad to see another solo traveller! Where are you staying?
    Aaron – Nice to see there will be a fellow aussie on the tour!
    Darbz – Where abouts are you and beka from?

    Hi Scott, there will be plenty of Aussies on the tour, nornally 80 – 90%. I did my last two trips solo and had no worries at all, loved the experience!
    Diane, I wouldnt say im an expert but I can give you some tips if you like. Hot Air Ballooning was great, as was the helicopter ride over the Grand Canyon. The jeep tour in Sedona was fun too. Not many people did the imax movie. I did the zoo in SD last time so Ill give that a miss this time and may do Seaworld but im not sure yet. If you want to know anything specific about the tour or America in general im happy to try to help you out from my experience. I’ve done most of the tour before, the LA to the Bay tour, but the people im travelling with wanted to see these places so im happy to see stuff I missed out on last time, and the tour im doing stops in Vegas. I also did the LA Explorer before it was just an accommodation package. Ive also done the Grand Southern and NY explorer

    Hello Everyone!! I have not yet booked my trip, but I am thinking of booking LA to the Bay! I am planning to travel solo so I’m a bit nervous!! :) but it’s always good to know some people before going on the tour!

    Hi Everyone,
    I’m staying at the Kyoto Grand, the Contiki room allocation was full but I managed to get a room with the hotel for not much more money. I don’t get in until late the evening before.

    Mahban – Book it, you know us now!
