Mediterranean Trail + Greek Island Hopp. July 9th

15 Jan 2013 lexer asked


Hey, I'm doing the Mediterrean Trail with the Greek Island Hopping Option begins July 9th. I know if you do the first part of the trip that I am doing, they combine you with other Contiki travelers who are doing just the Greek Island hopping part. My trip begins on July 9th. I believe around July 20th I will be combined in Athens with who ever is doing the Greek Island hopping. I am so excited. I've been on a contiki before and went solo and met so many friends however, I did meet people in discussion forrums first which made everything easier. I've been to Mykonos before and it is out of control fun. It would be cool to meet people before I go if they are going at same time. If anyone is going around this time, I can shoot you my FB page.

*Also, on June 27th I am doing the Croatia Island hopping trip which is 10 days. After that I am staying in Dubrovnik for a few days before I fly to Rome to begin the Mediterranean trail trip. Just wanted to put that out there incase anyone else is doing this!


Anyone else going?

    Hey I was thinking of doing the Mediterranean Trail also. From the things I’ve read about it it sounds like a fun trip. I’ve been debating on this tour or to just do the 14-day Greek Island Hopping only. Since this includes the island hopping option I maybe I’ll just go with this one. Are you a definite for July 9th ?

    no i have not booked for sure but if i do it im def doing july 9th………it’s the only time that works for me since it is 23 days and i need to be back at work aug 2nd. so the time frame is perfect. i loved italy, so i want to go back and then at the end of the trip do the two week island hopping.

    Hi, My name is Michaela. My boyfriend and I just booked the Mediterranean Trail trip leaving July 9th. We aren’t doing the Greek island hopping after, though. Just don’t have enough vacation time! I look forward to meeting you!

    Hi! I’m Nicki and I’m from S. California. My boyfriend and I are doing the Mediterranean tour with the 3 day Greek island hopping that begins on 7/9. Does anyone know if there is a Facebook page for this tour? I did a Contiki your a few years ago and we were able to connect via Facebook before the trip.
