i was looking in to it – but its such a rip off…its just accomm.
im stopping over on the way back from contiki in america and just booked accomm myself online…even my travel agent couldnt get as cheap as i wanted to yeah…
Not sure how much is included, but the idea of spending a few days in Hawaii while traveling by myself doesn’t sound like that much fun.
A bunch of other people getting together to do stuff for a few days….thats what I see to be getting out of staying with Contiki in Hawaii.
Anyone that has done a Hawaiian Stopover…
What sort of things did you do?
What is there to do?
What do you recommend?
Hi, I had a stopover in Hawaii after my Contiki in Europe. I booked the hotel through contiki. I didn’t do much at all to be honest. Was perfect to relax after the full on time I had in Europe. Spent most of the days just looking around, eating and lying in the sun. If you can find a hotel for a better price and relax then do it but Hawaii really was the perfect way to end the time away plus it helped with jet lag since they are very close to the time back home just a day behind.(make sence?)
There are a lot of outdoor things to do in Hawaii. If you stay in Waikiki, you can do water activities (jet ski, para sailing, surf, kayak, water bike), the zoo and aquarium are in walking distance, there are tours that you can take to go hiking, snorkeling, touring the island. The bus system is good, where you can pretty much go anywhere and it doesn’t take too long (and it’s cheap). The biggest shopping center on Oahu is near the beginning of Waikiki. Pearl Harbor is about 30 minutes away. As far as nightlife, there are lots of clubs/bars to go to – most of them are crowded on weekends.
If there is anything else you would like to know, just ask. I lived there.
