My friend and I booked into this tour last weekend.. we are getting pretty excited and the contiki tells me its 112 days till the tour starts. Is anyone else on here doing this tour? Would be great to start chatting with some people before we go. Were also staying the night of the 19th at the Kyoto. Would love to hear from people booked into or considering this tour plus anyone who's done it before.

    Sounds good, I’ve heard Teddy’s at the Roosevelt Hotel is cool, we could do drinks there. Sorry for the late reply Nicola! Busy few days, I haven’t but I’ve heard good things from my friends who have been. This is my first overseas trip- I have always wanted to travel but. What about you? Hi Clare, that’s exciting! Time will fly by, will you be in L.A the night before? Where are you coming from?

    Hey, its meant to be an amazing bar/club even just a drink there would be cool… people like Marilyn used to drink there and apparently it is done up to look very old Hollywood! That’s awesome? What Contiki trip did you do? Yeah so funny we are on the same flight? You’re flying out from New Zealand right?

    Yeah totally!! me too it makes going to work seem not so bad. Oh yep kinda tricky those things aye. It’s just been in the news here about people coming home to ridiculous phone bills after being overseas. I’m only on prepay so I don’t have to worry bout that luckily.
