    I’ve booked and paid for this tour Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> I started my own forum below but said the 29th by mistake, but it’s def the 30th Smiler<!--graemlin::)--> Can’t wait!!!!

    Are you staying in London for long before you leave for the tour?

    Awesome….. yeah i’ll be flying into London on the 27th April (I am from Australia) and stay in London until the tour. How about yourself?

    I arrive in London on the 25th of April and am staying at the Generator hostel. I’m also staying a couple of days after the tour cos I’m doing another one!

    I’m from Adelaide, where abouts are you from?

    I’ve looked into the generator, at the moment i am booked into that hotel contiki suggests but i think i am gona cancel that and stay in a hostel. After this tour i have a week off and then go on another tour aswell. I am from Renmark, South Australia (about 3 hours drive from Adelaide, towards the VIC border) are you travelling alone or with someone?

    Yeah a hostel will be a lot more cheaper!!! What tour are you doing after? I’m doing Road to Rome dept. on the 18th May. I’ve been to Renmark many times before, my Mum is friends with the people who used to own the Cobdogla caravan park so we used to go there pretty much every holidays!

    I’m travelling alone, how about you?? Do you have facebook?

    Wow small world hey! Yeah hostels are going to be a lot cheaper and think it would be a better experience aswell. I am doing the European Explorer Plus Greek Island Cruising goes for about 33 days or something after the Great Britain one. So excited, i am travelling alone too though, so am a bit scared in that respect. Yeah i have facebook, Kristy Vriends, think i am the only one on there with that name.

    Hi all!
    My friend and I are also booked for this tour, but we are only doing England and Scotland. I’m guessing that it is all one tour and people join and leave depending on what they have booked. We are visiting Ireland with friends a few weeks before this so decided to give the full tour a miss. We are also doing the European Inspiration tour before this one. We are both from Australia and can’t wait to meet you all!

    Hi guys,

    Nice to hear from you all. I’ve just made up a facebook group for our tour, just search for Contiki Chickens, Great Britain and Ireland and you should find it Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->
