Hey, me and two other girlfriends have just booked our contiki tour to leave on the 3rd July. We are from Newcastle Australia and was wondering if anyone else will be on the same trip? We are staying at the Royal National 3 days before the trip leaves! Be good to hear from anyone else that will be on the same tour! Smiler

    Hey all our tavel agent was told that this tour wasnt going ahead because they didnt have enough numbers so we moved to the tour leaving on the 5th…i called contiki and they said that the 3rd is fully booked…dont really know what happened but our tour has been moved to the 5th so looks like we wont be on this one leaving the 3rd!!

    hi ash,
    sounds like you may have a very lazy travel agent. probably got around to booking you guys in when it was too late…have a great time anyways…and just for everyone elses peace of mind, if you haven’t called up already, the trip is NOT cancelled.

  • 11 Dec 2007 Ashleigh36 said

    yeah i think so! we got handed over to the manager because she stuffed up so many times with our trip! but everything has been moved around and we are staying on the 5th it gives us a little longer in London to check it out and be ready for the tour!

    You all sound like a good party group sucks we wont be joining you all! might see you all before you head off on your tour!
