    Hey Stacey,

    Are you going from NY-LA? If so there is a facebook group you can join called Grand Southern Jan 14 you should join Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi Stacey,

    Im going on the Jan 20th from LA and I’m from Sydney.
    I’ll be in LA for a week before the tour with some friends. We are staying the 19th in the Kyoto Grand.
    Let me know if you want to meet up. I still need to get an international number but I can give it to you when I get it.
    We also have a facebook group it’s called Grand Southern Contiki Tour 2011. The picture is of Vegas if that helps.
    Let me know if you need anymore help.

    Hey Guys,I was thinking of doing this tour later in the year just wanted to ask if internal flights between cities on the trip are included in the $4200?
