    Heya, I’m Amy from the UK and looking at booking this one soon too. It will be my third tour as well but it’s still nice to feel like you kinda know someone before you go :)

    Hey amy!
    I know how you feel! i’m travelling alone (my other 2 contikis were with friends) so i’d feel so much better if i knew people before i went.

    I didn’t know anyone at all (even from here) on the other tours but there was a group of 5 or 6 girls all travelling on their own as well on both trips and we had a great time so I’m sure it will be the same on this one. Which Contikis have you been on before?

    I went Great Britian and Ireland tour and London Paris and Rome. Couldn’t get enough so i thought i’d do it all again =]

    Ah so you’re a European pro by now then :p Even though the rest of Europe is pretty much on my doorstep, I’ve never really seen any of it except for a couple of day trips to France! Criminal really but I’m making up for it now.

    I arrive in London on the 11th staying at the hotel based above the contiki basement… Meeting up before the trip sounds like a good idea… Anyone planning on exploring London before the tour begins?

  • 29 Mar 2011 Melx said


    I arrive the night of the 11th. I plan on abby roading it up the next day and have a few things planned for the days leading up to the tour. I stay at the imperial for 2 nights then head to the royal national (which is the one at the contiki basement)
    I’ve been to London before though, so i know my way around places and can give tips on things to do and all that jazz =]

  • 30 Mar 2011 Amy said


    Hey guys! More Aussies! lol I won’t be up in London until 15th June but it would be cool to all meet up before tour starts :)

  • 31 Mar 2011 Mark said

  • 1 Apr 2011 Mark said
