Am I a bit too old to travel with Contiki?

7 Jul 2010 Adventurer101 asked

Ok so I made the rash decision to go on my very first contiki during DEC/JAN this year... thhe thing is, I'm 29yo. I'm just a little worried that becoz Contiki have a rep for young travellers partying (which I don't mind!) will I be able to mingle with everyone? <BR>I consider myself quite socialble, but as I will be on the tour during NYE, I really don't want to be left out and stuck in my hotel room <img src="" alt="Frowner" width="15" height="15"><!--graemlin::(--><BR>Sounds a little immature I know, but it's my first trip/tour on my own and I hope to make it a good one. <BR>Would appreciate any advice from those who have been in the same situation as I, and how you overcame a similar paranoia... thanks!

    Not at all.I was 32 when I went with them on one of their Vietnam Tours last year.It was a great holiday that I will remember for a long time to come.Off the topic a little I was considering Contiki for Egypt in 2011 and it is a great product but a discussion with the travel agent recommended I take an Insight Tour instead and for good reason.
