Hi guys! Smiler

My hubby and I are doing this tour! So excited! Big Grin

Anyone joining us? Roll Eyes

A few questions though, as this will be our first Contiki as well as our first time overseas! Oh, were from South Africa. Wink

  • The tour starts in London, ends in Rome, so how do you plan on getting from Rome back to London to catch ur flight? Because flying directly from SA - London and back is the cheapest so far. So what would be the cheapest way to get back to London?

  • The tour details state the tour "ends after breakfast". Any idea what time this is?

  • Florence..... I so want to see the David statue, but I know its very far... And the tour does give you 2 days free in Rome, if I understand correctly, but i dont think this will be enough time to visit Florence... Any ideas?

    Okay, thats it for now! Looking forward to hearing from you! Cool

      hi barry!

      have you been on a contiki tour before? I am so excited, i can hardly wait!

      SA is a great country, and I must admit, I haven’t done a lot of touring around here. But before my hubby reach the Contiki expiry date, we thought we’d first tour Europe!

      Hey! I’m planning to go on this same trip, except the next departure. But I thought I’d share this…

      Read this Travelouge about the trip if you get time.


      I found it really helpful and a good indicator of times.

      Hi Marikat!
      I’m also going on this trip…although I’m really nervous because I’m going on my own.

      I booked my flight with contiki and the price wasn’t too bad because there was a promotion going on so maybe they could help you find a flight from rome to london. The agents are actually really good.

      Hi Sweetie!

      Dont worry – I am also very nervous, my first time overseas, ect. But I think more excited than nervous! Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->

      Where are you from? So nice to meet someone that’s going too!

      Oh, btw, I found really cheap airline tickets thru Turkish Airlines, so I am all set.

      Go read thru the blog that Stephkat posted, its really helpful!
