    I know they guarantee that everyone will be put in same sex rooms . I didn’t know if your situation would force you to get your own rooms? Or if you’d be split up. Surely not the latter. I was just curious as to how it would work.

    I didn’t know that, I’m rather curious now myself, I don’t mind either way but I guess it would be nice to be together

    Hey guys. What is everyone doing with immunisations? I’m trying to figure out what ones we will need for the tour and the cheapest way to get them. There are just so many of them that are highly recommended for the countries we’re going to. Rabies, Hepatitis A, Hepatitis B, Typhoid, Malaria Tablets and the list of NHMRC needles to. Do we really need all of them? I’d like to get all of the injections sooner rather then later to just get them out of the way.

    I like having everything organized so I don’t have to think about it while on the trip but that’s just me coz I’m a stress head lol. maby pick like three or four hotels/hostels you would want to stay at get the numbers for them and then ring when the tour is near finished just incase some are booked out ? Never know, or wing it lol , what do u feel comfortable with basicly

    I’m mostly concerned about having heaps of vitamins. Do not want to get the infamous contiki cough. I think it’s inevitable on a tour as long as ours.

    Hi everyone! My name is Danica and I am from Victoria, BC. I am going on this trip too! The Greek Islands option. It’s strange though that there are only a few people showing up in my Meet up but no one from this discussion group.

    My plan is to fly into London a few days before the tour starts and explore then I plan on staying in Amsterdam after the tour to visit with some friends and family. If anyone is interested in meeting up and exploring London just let me know.

    Hey Danica, yeah not many people have joined the group! But I’d love the link to the Facebook page. I can’t decide to stay in Amsterdam or not. My original plan is to stay back in London 8 days after the tour! Are you staying at the royal national before the tour?

  • 11 Apr 2013 Danica said

    Danica

    Yes I will be at the Royal National the night of Aug 19th, although I may book a hostel a block or two away for a few more nights before the tour leaves.

    hey guys, the above facebook group link is actually for the August 21st Ultimate European, which is a couple of days later than the one you’re going on. i would hate for people to get close to other people and it turns out they’re not even on the same tour, the last thing one would want is to end up not knowing anyone on a tour across the world.

    Zac and Lauren. Good News. While reading through some forums I found out from past travelers that Contiki does have a few rooms for couples but you need to get in contact with them to request it before hand. (The sooner the better as I don’t think they have many) :)

Questions?
