    We are booked in for the 14th? Is that what you mean?? (just had a look at the departure dates – don’t think there is one on the 13th…) So maybe yes? :-)

    I’m from Canada, and for Canadian departures Contiki adds an extra day to arrive in Europe so I see it as starting on the 13th thought the activities and hotel bookings don’t start untill the 14th. So yes it sounds like its the same trip.

    However as a Canadian I have had frequent problems traveling in Winter so I’m actualy arriving in Europe on the 12.

    Yes, my partner and I are actually arriving on the 18/12 and starting a different contiki on the 20/12 (hopefully!). I am a little concerned about it not being definite though! How old are you, and are you travelling alone? It is so exciting to find someone this early out!

    I’m 28 I’m doing the trip alone, then tackeling Paris, I speak a medium amount of french, then I’m spending a week in London with the museums and family. I’m Canadian. How about you.

    P.s. I’m already contemplating packing my suitcase, I’m so excited.

    Yay! The tour went definite departure! How exciting! We are both from Australia, I’m 21 and my partner is 23. I wish I could speak French :-) Also now contemplating packing again haha.

    Also – you said you have had problems, is that just with the weather?

  • 30 Jul 2012 Caroline_the_Muse said


    Yes any problems I have with flights in winter are all related to blizzards from flying out of Canada.
