    I’m travelling solo again Amsterdam to Barcelona June 7, Eastern Road July 7 & Greek Island Hopping July 22 :) No matter what tour you do you’ll find other solo travellers & have an awesome time. I also did European Vista in March-April 2011 solo & had a great time, my biggest worry was hoping I got paired with a good roommate which I was even if she was a little quieter then myself.

    Hi LozzyG,

    I’m a first timer in Contiki, but not a first time traveller in Europe. I’m from Asia, the Philippines to be exact. Our summer vacation starts at the last week of March and ends first week of June. But I heard that it in Europe or even other countries, their summer vacation starts last week of May. Do you think that the date of tour that I have chosen (European Whirl May 7, 2013) would just consist of a few people? I noticed that most of the Contiki goers take the June-September tours. I’m really worried about the tour. I’m looking forward to meeting a lot of people and hoping that others would join this date as well. And I’m just a bit scared, like, what if there’ll only be like 5 of us in the group or something.

    Anybody is free to react to my sentiment.

    The tour I went on in march-april last year was close to full (probably about 42 people), just because it’s not the official holidays in Europe there are still lots of people travelling around. If your tour happened to not have many people contiki would contact you and move you onto a more full one, they won’t operate near empty tours (just as any other tour operator would also do).
