Question

Anyone doing European Highlights May 22, 25 or 27?

I'm trying to choose which date to pick and I need to decide soon. The 22nd has the benefit of being in Cannes on the last day of the film festival, but I'm not sure how much excitement we will be able to see. Has anyone done any of the tours that end up in Cannes during the festival? I'm interested to see who else is starting on any of these dates.

    I’m at the freak out part I think! I’m from Brisbane, Queensland and I booked and paid today :-)

    Lol you’ll be right this is my first big over seas trip so when I’m on my way I’ll probably start freaking out again! What when are you flying out? I’m leaving Townsville on the 25 may so I can can see some sights in London first.

    I fly out on the 25th too, got a big stopover in Hong Kong so I arrive in London at 6am on the 26th…won’t know what to do with myself haha

    What’s with all the Aussies? Doesn’t anyone else on this planet travel?

    Must be… Guess I’ll find out when I head on my tour.

    I’m thinking 27th is the way to go. Probably book in the next day or so.

    Only reason I booked 29th is coz its a definite departure.

    what do you mean by definite departure?
    p.s would be good to catch up at the hotel if we’re both there at the same time :-)

  • 26 Feb 2013 Bec said

    Bec

    I’m not 100% sure but if they need to change or cancel that tour they can where as the definite departures are defiantly going that date… It may explain it on here somewhere better then what I have. Yeah catching up sounds good :) I’ll be at the hotel from the 26th of May :)

    im going on the 30th… I thought you could only go on the 27th or the 30th

    When I check the availability it tells me that the 25th, 27th and 29th are available but no mention of 30th. Kinda strange.

    May 20th. That’s freaking where it’s at.

  • 28 Feb 2013 Rhys Halliwell said

    Rhys Halliwell

    Pffft, the 20th is for chumps. We’ve already established that all the cool kids are going on the 27th.

  • 28 Feb 2013 Angela said

    Angela

    that’s impossible..

    Team Canada will be present on the tour starting the 20th. Looking forward to Cannes and the F1 race at Monaco. Depending on the schedule we should be there during or right after the race.

    The reason people from different countries are seeing different dates for departure is due to the fact that Contiki gives Americans and Canadians an extra 2 days at the start of their trip for traveling time to London. So a trip starting on the 30th of may shows up to Australians as starting on the 1st of June (which is the date it leaves London). So my trip on the 27th would show up to Americans or Canadians as starting on the 25th.
