    You too Tanita. The contiki kicks off our travelling. When we finish the tour on the 5 Feb, we stay on for another week to attend Carinvale. We then leave Rio and head up to Cancun for a week and then off to Miami for a while too. How bout you?

    Hey guys! (26 F Syd)
    I only just figured out how to reply on this discussion forum instead of sending individual msgs… technological moron here.
    I did Europe contiki when I was 19 but first time to South America and so excited! Lyndon & Alli – sounds like an awesome trip! You’re gonna love Miami. Asha – I’m probably gonna book the Carnival tour with contiki once they release tour dates at the end of the year…just cheaper and easier. Also want to join in on the parade and contiki can arrange that as one of their options ;) if you’re doing it on your own, I’ve been told now is the time to start organising as everything gets booked quickly… Hope you join our adventure tour too!

    As an aspiring adventurer/mountaineer, I looked up to him in many ways, it is indeed sad news to hear of his passing.look at this site

    Hi Guys, I’ve booked the Explorer departing 18th Jan and It also finishes on the 5th of January. I’ve been told by my Travel agent that Contiki may not release a Carnival 2013 tour unless they get enough expressions of interest. Are you guys considering another company as a back-up? I’m trying to decide to book another company just in case. Would hate to miss out but not sure who to go with?

    Hi everyone, I’ve booked the Explorer as well. Looking forward to meeting you all :) Jessicam876 I’ve done my booking through contiki and they have assured me that the Carnival tour will go ahead, like last year it won’t be announced until last minute.

    Hey Asha, I’m staying on in Rio for a week after the tour as well. Whereabouts have you booked your accomodation? I was going to do the contiki tour for carnivale but too expensive and the tour starts much later than I previously thought. Looking in to accomodation for that week now, hope I’m not too late :)

    Hey all, I’m on the Peru part of the trip so will be with you on the first 2 weeks of the journey! Was originally booked onto the whole 25 days but had to change my itinerary around a bit (damm tours not linking up!). Heading to Costa Rica after this one and then to Rio Carnivale – I booked the Intrepid Rio Carnival package which seems good and then Contiki released their package, damm. Ah well, it’s going to be awesome being there! See you all in 5 weeks :)

    Thanks Koren!! Were you emailed the details of the accom?? Also – what time do we have to be there??
    It’s fairly pricey – so I might try and hunt around for nearby hostels…..?
    Anyone else booked accom pre-tour?? :-)
