Grand Southern LA start August 2013

24 Nov 2012 Brad242 asked


Anybody thinking of going on this tour, or can anybody who has already done it give me an idea of what to expect? I'm looking at doing this one as my first Contiki - I'm a 26 year old guy from Tassie, traveling solo! Probably looking at an early August tour.

    Hey! I did this tour a few years ago now. I did mine in Dec though, so I cant be sure about the weather. I can tell you that I had a ball though and met many new friends!!! I definitely recommend it. Just a thing that I was unaware of, on my tour we had some ppl jump off half way and more ppl jump on where the others jumped off. I think there were 3 tours combined together. One was the full grand southern, and the other two were the first and last halves of the tour. This was not a problem though, but ppl were surprised when we found out.
    I hope you do it and have a blast!!
