    just checked our departure date and its FULL woo!! there’s more of us out there somewhere!!
    also how much spending money is everyone taking! there’s hardly any info about SA on here!! >.<

    yeah I am not sure about what im going to do for money…some people have said its easy to access ATMs and others have said the opposite, but im not super keen to travel with a heap of cash.

    I was probably thinking 4k or 5k spending money (including the extra options) I have no idea if that it too little or fine…

    Hi Claire,
    I am also doing this tour solo and have decided to include the Inca Trail. Looks like it will be a great tour.

    I have just booked in for this as well – I’m 27, from Adelaide and travelling solo. Planning on spending a few months in South/Central America after the Contiki as well…very exciting!!
