Anyone done European Explorer + Greek Island Tour
Im in the middle of planning a Contiki in June 2013 and would like some feedback from anyone that has travelled solo on the European Explorer + Greek Island Tour.
What were your favourite places? How were the Hotels? What was the food like? Were the extras very expensive? Did you feel like you got to spend enough time at each destination?
Anyone thinking of going in June 2013?
So excited cant stop thinking about it!

We’re also doing this tour but at the end of April 2013 so would love to know the answers also!
Hello and Hello
Well I just booked this trip today with a mate who I meet on my contiki tour last year in Europe (winter). Booked the 2nd of June.
In regards to your questions, my last tour I did most of what is on this one apart from Greek Island and Croatia. So your in for a good ride. Hotels are usually pre decent and had on bad experience but was only at that place for one night so it wasnt a huge issue, the hotels are generally within the city centre if not on the outskirts which equates to a cheap taxi ride anyways. 2 days in generally enough depending on how much you wanted to see. I know in Rome i didnt have enough time and ended up rushing on a few things.
Pre excited about this. Cannot come any quicker!
Im doing this one too but on 30 June next year!
If its European Explorer plus Greek Island Cruising my boyfriend and i are doing it on June 23rd :D
Nah, My boyfriend and I are doing the European Explorer plus Mykonos Island on 30 June because it is a gaurenteed departure the 23rd isn’t.
Hey, I have heard great reviews about this tour, (which is why I picked it). I am leaving on the 30th June. Unfortunately I don’t talk to the people anymore so I can’t find out how expensive the extras are, but i did hear you can pay a certain amount on the cruise and all your drinks are included, this was 2 years ago so may not be entirely accurate now, but can’t wait!!
I had a look at the prices for the extras on tour and I think they total up to about $1500 AUD for all the extras, this being said there are a couple that you may not be able to do concurrently, plus you may not want to do all of them. I hope this helps
We were also planning to do this but probably on May 12, 2013.. is anyone already paid full to get the contiki 10 percent discount?
Im doing the tour on May 12 and have fully paid with the discount! Just waiting for it to be confirmed now!!!
Hi Jess. I am also looking at doing the European Explorer solo on the 2nd June. Just havent booked it yet :-)
I’m all booked for the European Explorer on the 16th of June!
A friend and I are doing the European explorer on the 16th of June and would love to meet some people on our tour before we go!
What tour dates did you book Jess?
I have booked The European Explorer with greek islands cruise on the 16th of June !!!!
Did you book the cruise or the mykonos island ?
If your on the same one have you joined the meet up? More and more people are joining :D
We are doing the Mykonos island option.
We have joined meet up but there are only a couple of people on our one.
how may people have joined your meetup Kahlia? we have about 14 people on the greek island cruise option :)
There is 4 including my friend and I. The other 2 people only joined within the last week so we were getting scared no one else had booked!
From what I can tell we will all be travelling together and then splitting into 2 groups when we get to Greece. It would be good if there was a meet up for all people doing the European explorer.
Yes it would be a great idea to have a meet up for everyone on the european explorer !
Im doing the European Explorer with the Mykonos option (16th June). Im travelling solo and would like keep in contact before our adventure!
maybe we should make a facebook group so it’s easier to keep in contact?
That sounds like a good idea :)
