Sweet as South, Departing Christchurch, 27th Dec

1 Aug 2012 LukeCarruthers asked


Just thought id see if anyone here will be on the "Sweet As South" tour departing Christchurch on the 27th December 2012. I've booked already, getting pretty keen, NYE in Queens Town should be awesome to say the least!

This tour departs and returns to Christchurch, I think there is a couple of different ones to avoid confusion.

Cheers, Luke

    Hi! I’m doing the “Sweet as South” departing Christchurch on December 27th 2012 ending in Wellington Jan 5th. So all the same except for the final day I think? So excited! I’m travelling alone, which will be different/interesting, but cannot wait!

    Sounds great Amy, does that mean we will be on the same tour? It’s my first Contiki I’m not too sure how they work! I’m starting to get excited too, exams and a few more weeks of work, then ill be counting the days :)

    Hi Sam, to be honest Im not even sure, I haven’t looked at my itinerary in months, but I’m flying Adelaide . Sydney > Auckland > Christchurch.

    Travelling alone is great fun, i did 2 contiki tours in America last year on my own and travelled on my own, it was great fun. You meet so many people.. :)
    Contiki is good fun, gets you doing things you wouldnt noramally do and you go to some towns you wouldnt normally go to..
    yeah im flying the same path as well.

    Well I’m not too sure how they work either, I’m assuming so, cause the tours are the same except for the extra day, but I guess we’ll find out on the 27th of December! Yeah I have to work all the way up until christmas, but then NZ here I come!
    Sam glad to hear travelling alone is fun, lots of people have said it but it’s still a bit daunting being the first time! Just hoping to meet lots of people like you said :)

    you will meet heaps of people.. i meet two girls in america who live one suburb away from me and we have become great friends from there.. all the stories you hear about contiki are correct.. :)
