Greek Island Hopper July 6, 9 or 12 2013??

10 Dec 2012 robertom87 asked


I'm looking to do the Greek Island Hopper either July 6, 9 or 12 in the summer of 2013. I've done Eastern Road and Spanish Spree (was awesome) the last couple of years but always heard this tour was unreal. I want to do Croatia for a few days after the tour before heading to Tomorrowland in Belgium near the end of July.

Let me know if anyone has signed up for any of these! Hope to make my decision soon to take advantage of the early bird discount.

    I’m doing Greek Island Hopping on July 4th! That’s not one of the dates you mentioned haha but it’s close enough. :) I did two Contiki tours last May and I’m doing London to Athens before this one so I guess this will be my 4th tour. I’ve heard really awesome things as well, it sounds like it’ll be an epic two weeks and I can’t wait!

    haha nice! hmm i’ll see if i can try and go as early as the fourth but i’m not sure yet, i know a lot of ppl that did london to athens and loved it.. are you heading home after greek island hopper? I plan on doing greek island hopper first then go from there, would love to see croatia after greek islands

    You definitely should! Anytime in July will be great since it’s peak season and I hear the nightlife is incredible haha. I’ve found about 4 other people doing that date so far (and it’s a guaranteed departure) – I’m going solo so I’m keen to meet lots of people beforehand. I really want to stay longer after GIH but I’m not sure if I’ll be able to since I’m doing London to Athens as well… it depends on money and whether I can get more time off work. I’d love to just stay in Europe all summer, how awesome would that be? Oh man Croatia sounds so good, you’ll have a blast!
