Hi!

Is anyone thinking of heading out on this tour?

I'm from Australia and tossing up the Dec 15 and Dec 22 departures!

I think Christmas at the Grand Canyon and NYE in Tahoe would be unreal!

    Hi Nick… Im doing this tour! i was originally on the 15th December departure, but changed to the 22nd. the 22nd departure was only recently opened. Im the same thinking as you… would be great to spend christmas AND new years on tour… We were going to do New years by ourselves in Vegas, but would be much better in a group anyway… (aparently lake tahoe has a great party atmosphere etc)

    23 yo from Brisbane Aust.

    Yeah, you’re right! NYE with a contiki crew in Tahoe should be awesome!

    I’ll be going with the mrs..we just booked the 22nd Dec in this week, so we’re confirmed starters! Can’t wait!

    (We’re from Brizzy too! It’s gonna be cold!)

    Hi all, I am looking at doing this one…22nd Dec. Going solo, but will be lots of fun. Looking at doing the LA explorer beforehand and NY explorer afterwards. Lake Tahoe sounds like lots of fun!

    Hii, joined the group!

    I’m not sure what I’m doing before/after.
    I haven’t got any real plans yet, as I haven’t booked flights just yet (this week hopefully!!)

    But because I’m going alone, it’s hard to decide what to do – I don’t want to run amok in the streets by myself! Hah

    yeh im goin by myself and will be by myself before & after the tour. Plenty of ppl in the same situation, you never know some ppl may be going to same places before/after tour. Totally get the running amok part…It’s more the night times. Plenty of day tours to join anyways. Lots to see and do.

    Yeah, I should be there for a few days before hand – I didn’t want to start the trip jetlagged. Not sure what I’m doing afterwards though, still trying to work out how much cash I’ll have, such is life right! Hehe.
