Europe July 2013

9 Aug 2012 EAC13 asked


Hey everyone, Im planning to head to Europe at the end of June 2013 and do a tour of Europe at the start of July, followed by Greek Islands and maybe also Croatia Islands. Just wondering what tours everyones doing or if there are anything that you suggest. Im thinking European Whirl but European Escapade does look good too :)

    Hi, i’m thinking of doing the croatia island cruising tour in July 2013. Anyone been on this or is thinking of going next year? :)

    Hi Ellie,

    I am doing Croatian Island Cruising starting on 20 July. I haven’t come across any people on here who have done it but a mate of mine did a few years back… he said it was something else! :)

    Hi Rhett, I have read a few reviews and they are all great! This is going to be my first contiki and im going solo so im really looking forward to it. Im thinking of going July 6. Are you thinking of staying in split the night before?

  • 19 Dec 2012 Rhett said


    Awesome! I am going solo too! :) Yeah I am staying the night before in Split and haven’t got any plans for after the tour. I have heard Split is a pretty happening place! Doing any other travel/tours?

    Sounds good :) No just this one inbetween study. A little bit scared..havent been travelling much before, especially solo! Can I ask you how much in total this trip would cost? including flights and spending money etc. Just trying to get my head around everything before I book! Any advice would be sweet!

  • 19 Dec 2012 Rhett said


    Well it is guaranteed to be an adventure! :) And I have heard nothing but good things so you should have the best experience and hopefully meet some amazing people! My return flights cost me $1,611. I am flying in May and returning (maybe?! haha) in October so July flights being peak season might be a few hundred dollars more than that! I am also flying in and out of London which is a little cheaper! The Croatia Island Sailing cost me $1,229.50. That was with an on-deck cabin which was the more expensive option than the below deck cabin. But I did get the early payment discount ($135) and the multiple contiki tour discount ($100) off that so that might have evened it out. Sorry I am not sure how much the above deck cabin was… I just went for it! haha
