Anyone booked in on the 26th of Jan 2013?

19 Nov 2012 Chrissy14 asked


Hey, i'm wondering if anybody else is booked on the Island Hopping West leaving the 26th of Jan. I'll be travelling by myself and thinking about booking the tour this week.
Would be good to see if anyone else on here is also locked in... =)

    Hey I am going on this trip the week after you guys, I am a solo female traveller, do you think I should leave a few days open at the end of my trip before flying back in case I want to head places with people I’ve met on the trip? Not sure what to do x

    Hey Mikayla! You have nothing to be petrified about. Travelling by yourself is one of the best things… and dont worry your with a group of people so your not entirely by yourself neway. Where you from? Theres a few of us getting there the night before and staying at the hotel so i’m sure we could work something out to go out for drinks or something before the tour actually starts.

    Hi Chrissy and Violeta, I am a last minute booking on your tour. I get into Phuket on the 25th. So would be keen to meet up with you guys. I come from the gold coast and this is my first contiki trip. I just had to finally take the plunge and do it. Pretty excited and I have never been to Thailand before but travelled all over the world. Michelle

    Hey guys! I’m booked in for the jan 26th tour, travelling solo. Nervous and excited at the same time. Will be my first contiki tour. Looking forward to it :)

    Ps. from Adelaide.

    Hey guys, you’ve got nothing to be nervous about… Best thing is going by yourself and atleast we know now theres a few of us that are solo travelers so we’ll all be right!
    Definately need to work out a place to meet on the night of the 25th for us all to meet up and have a drink =)
    Not long now…. 6 days until our tour starts… YEY! =)
