    My girlfriend and I are both going, its my first Contiki and she has done one through Europe about 7 years ago. We’re from Sydney too. Any tips on what to expect? Or essentials to bring?

    Did you find you needed a lot of cash other than what Contiki provided or was it inclusive for the most part?

    This will be my first european contiki, from what I have been told they are a bit different from the Asian contikis that I have done. I have a friend who did a very similar trip to this one, he had heaps of fun sounds like he drank a lot of beer and ate a lot of good food. I think there is a bit included but most entertainment is not, and some transport around the cities you need to pay for yourself.

    From my personal experience with contiki I am going to be bringing a good stock of meds. I found re hydration powders or tablets a life saver last time and a mutli vitamin, going all out and not stopping for 2 weeks really takes it out of you.

    Are you just going on this trip or are you spending any extra time over there?

    Just booked it a few days ago, and this is my first Contiki. I’ll be travelling from Canada and will be arriving in Berlin on the 15th and planning to stay a few days there before starting the tour. Would anyone be interested in joining me? I’m thinking of staying at a hostel/couchsurfing for those nights.

    Hi there,
    I’m Matto133’s girlfriend Alysha; just found out our tour been 100% confirmed! Weirdly the contiki staff member I spoke to said our tour for the 19th is the only May tour confirmed; however I read other discussion forums saying the May 12th tour is the only one confirmed…..odd

    I’m also going on this tour! It’s my first Contiki and I’m wondering if anyone else is leaving from Toronto?
