Hi All,
My brother and I have just paid the deposit for the European Escapade tour leaving on June 27th 2013! Anyone else coming yet? Also if you have done this tour before, any tips and hints you could provide me with would be greatly appreciated.
The count down has begun, bring on 2013!

    We are doing a second Contiki tour of Russia which leaves 3 days after this tour finishes. What about yourself?

    Oh New Zealand? That’s awesome! This tour was my Christmas present so I’ve only been planning this trip since late December. I’m wondering how much money I’ll need and what I should pack. I’m hoping to stay in Europe a little longer to go to Tomorrowland on the 26th!! Our tour ends July 23rd so it would be a shame to be in Europe, that close to the festival and not go!

    Anyone know if Contiki sends some sort of introduction or welcome package in the mail when you book your trip ??

    The 23rd? When I booked they said it was ending on the 22nd? I hadn’t actually heard of tomorrowland, but just googled it and it sounds awesome! I’ve been wondering about money as well but if you read all the conversations on this website there is some good advice from people.

    I think we get a welcome package like a month before the tour from what I remember from my last tour

    Ohh ok, thanks for the info guys! It probably do end the 22nd, I must have mixed the dates up. But yeah, Tomorrowland is supposed to be awesome! If you’re thinking about getting tickets you gotta pre-register by February 7 I’m pretty sure! Like I said before, I don’t think I’ll have a better chance than this summer to go to the festival! Which country are you most excited about visiting?

    I think I’ll look into it. Ooo that’s a hard one actually, I’m looking forward to so many of them for different reasons, it’s the perfect tour with the places we get to go. I’m spending a few days in Singapore and London before the tour so that will be nice, and then a bit more of London after the tour. I’m also really looking forward to Germany and Austria since my family is from there and I did German at college. What about you?

    Lol well now that you have said that I’ve checked my paperwork and it says the 21st! Well I got that wrong

    I’m looking forward to visiting London, I’ve heard it’s a beautiful city! I’m planning on going there a few days before the tour starts to explore a little bit. I’m also really excited about visiting Spain and Rome! I can’t wait to hear all the different accents, lol :) You’re going to Russia as well? that sounds like fun! Have either of you guys actually “checked in” to this tour yet? My passport expired so I’m just waiting for my new one to be issued so I can finish the registration process.

    Nah havent checked in yet, will probably do it before we fly out. We are starting the tour in Paris because we really wanted to see more there. Ive been to London before and really liked it, lots to see and do :)

    I can’t wait to do it all :-) . I wish we got the welcome packs earlier than one month before leaving, what does checking into the tour mean?

  • 21 Jan 2013 nursetabs said

    nursetabs

    I think maybe it saves time on the check in stuff you would do on your first day, like giving all your details ie next of kin, passort number etc

    Hey all! Just wanted to ask that if anyone has to cancel their tour that starts on June 27th, could they please let me know? I’m dying to go with my friend Hollie, and it’s all full at the moment. :(
    Thanks so much!
