    i’m also considering this tour……
    is anyone getting to Istanbul a couple of days earlier or staying after the tour in greece?

    Possibly staying in Istanbul an extra night prior. There is to much to see and do in just one day!

    Ange, my friend Megan and I are getting to Istanbul on the 14th August so that is a day earlier. Then we will be staying in Athens on the 24th and 25th and then off to island hop on the 26th.

    I cant wait to go on this tour! haha …is the president hotel the contiki hotel?

    I believe it is the Contiki hotel. I would rather stay at the same place everyone is.
    Not many ppl on this forum…. Hope there are many others doing this tour.
    Any chance I can chat to u thru email or Facebook. Looks like anyone can read this.

    sure! look me up on fb..Gemma Bucholtz.
    When you book a contiki and you register there is something called the ‘contiki meet ups’…so far there is about 6 people who have checked in… it is still a little while away so I would not be worried just yet.

    Hi everybody! I’ll be on this tour as well. I’ll be in Istanbul from August 13th (I booked 2 pre-nights at the Contiki hotel) and I’ll be staying in Athens until the 26th (not in the Contiki hotel, I chose another one in the Plaka area to make it easier to visit the city). Yes that’s true… not many people visit the Contiki forum so don’t worry… there will be many more people doing the tour than those you’ll find on the web before the departure. See you all soon, should be a great tour :-)

    I’ve just created a new group on Facebook for our tour (I couldn’t find another one). So if you want to join, you can find it at https://www.facebook.com/groups/337796036299863/ (it’s called “Contiki Turkey & Greek Island Odyssey 15th August 2012”). It’s a closed group so only the members will see the posts.

    For those who have received them, how long did it take for the contiki wallet/pack to arrive?, I leave the country in just over 2 weeks and only booked this tour yesterday. Hoping they arrive before I’m out.
