Just trying to get an idea of who's going/ any suggestions about the tour, never done a contiki before, so I have no idea how this all works!

Sooooo if anyone feels like saying hi or offer any advice, i'm all for it!

    Hey!
    Nah, I meant the 7th haha. I haven’t booked the tour quite yet, just trying to get a few things in order first (flights etc.) but I’m almost at the stage where I’m ready to, damned planning.

    so far my plan is to fly in a few days before hand, then spend the night before the tou starts at the hotel they book for us. then at the end of the tour stay one more night at the place then a few days adventuring, then up to canada!

    Don’t suppose you know much about this Visa Waiver Program the US has do you?

    Hey, I’m booked on this tour also, starting the 7th. It looks like an amazing experience and I am likewise traveling alone. I’ve haven’t done a Contiki tour before, but I did a Topdeck tour of Europe last year and it was worth every cent! And I imagine the experiences would be similar. =)

    Hayley,
    If you’re travelling as a tourist for less than 90 days you can apply for the Visa Waiver Program. It costs $14 all up, and you can apply/pay online. Look up ESTA ,it will tell you more than I can :-)

    Hi all,
    I am also thinking about going on this tour. I really want to see these places but I have never done a contiki and would be traveling alone so I’m a bit hesitant..
    Are you all sharing rooms or getting your own?

    i think most of us are sharing rooms and we are all traveling alone :) we’re all soooo excited!

    Hey Evra, Contiki tours are really great if your travelling alone, you make so many friends. And those of us who’ve been talking so far are travelling alone. =)
