    hey abs & dee

    Hawaii would be amazing, at least we could get some colour before tour! I guess i’d be up for that! I was in Greece last year and have done the meditteranean in previous years however I havn’t been to Spain or Amsterdam yet so i’m going to do those two countries plus greece after tour before returning home. Yeh i’m on fb, add me Antoinette Georgia Adam

    hey all,

    Im 25 from syd looking at June / July 2010 also. Possibly a stop over in Hawaii on the way back. Not really been overseas either and looking at doing on my own, very nervous!!!

    Hi again

    Im a 25yr old gal from Perth WA. I just got in the post yesterday the 2010 contiki brochures for the Best of USA with the Hawaii stop over on the way back, am soo excited just reading them. Heading to the travel agent soon, less talk and more action i say. So what is everyone planning? going solo? what months are you peeps thinking of going?

    kazamerica – are you doing contiki hawaii stop over or just on your own?

  • 4 Aug 2009 Kaz said


    Hi Rachel6

    Yeah i figure if im already in America I’m def going and doing Hawaii as well. As this stage yep it will be on my own, i’d love to go with a friend in tow but no one can seem to commit to the adventure Frowner<!--graemlin::(--> What about yourself? Have you looked into booking anything as yet?


  • 4 Aug 2009 Rachel6 said


    At this stage just going through brochures etc getting excited about it all. Yeah i figured the same, seeing as Hawaii is on the way home seemed silly to not stop there as well.

    Hey Everyone,

    I’m a 25yr old female from Canberra and I am doing this tour on 5th June next year. I have been on a tour before in Europe, but this will be my first Contiki tour Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Sounds like a few of you are doing the Hawaii stopover. I’m heading straight to London after the tour and spending a bit of time in the UK/Europe before heading back to OZ mid Aug.

    Hey all

    Has anyone actually booked in their flights and tour yet for the Best of USA 2010?


  • 1 Sep 2009 hayls said


    Hi all,

    I’m booked in for the 5th of June 2010. I’m a 26 year old female from Sydney and will be staying in NY a couple of extra days after and then heading down to Miami to relax. I’m travelling solo and it’ll be my first time overseas, so excited!

    It’d be great to get to know people before the tour so let me know if you’re on the same date!


  • 1 Sep 2009 Pamela said


    I’ve just got my uni dates for 2010 and the only date that fits in with my mid year break is July 10 so I will probably book by the end of the week! It doesn’t seem to be a popular date though Frowner<!--graemlin::(-->
