Hello All

I was just wondering if anyone else is doing this tour in April next year?

This will be my 4th contiki tour, but my first American one. Im looking forward to meeting some new people and having a great look around the USA!!

Im also following this tour up with the Grand Northern departing NY on the 24th May 2013, if any one else is the doing same thing.

Cheers Greg

    I wish I could take a backpack but I have recently had back surgery :( so I cant have anything directly on my back so its a suitcase for me! So they better not tell me to leave me stuff behind!

    Awesome, I’ve just joined the fb group :)
    This will be my second contiki tour – so excited! I did one in Europe a couple of years ago and it was fabulous!
    Best way to travel.

    Qhere is everyone staying before contiki starts?
    Myself and Annie are arriving in LA on the 20th April -we are thinking of staying in Santa Monica..
    We are also in NYC for a week after contiki finishes :)

    This is also our first time to the USA!!

    The Contiki hotel is called the double tree by Hilton. But I think it is all booked out. I’m staying in central Hollywood before the tour, but have 2 nights at the Contiki hotel before it starts. I’m also arriving on the 20th. Who are you flying with?

    Hey Guys!
    I’m Sarah from Sydney…doing the Southern Adventure so getting off in New Orleans :) Think I have the worst travel agent as I haven’t received any information about this tour even though I booked last November! Feeling super under prepared and frustrated now that I have found the forums so hopefully you can all catch me up!
    Getting into LA on the 24th in the morning so only have one day to see the city!
    First contiki and doing it solo but more excited than nervous :)

    Feel free to add me to facebook – Sarah Cargill – and we can chat!
