    Same here, I did Europe with Topdeck, best experiencing it solo!

    When do you girls head over to the states? And which hotel are you girls staying at before we all meet up?

    Hey everyone, I’m Rosie – Going with Elyse. We get into NYC on the morning of the 1st! I have done New York before – I suggest doing Staten Island Ferry first up – it makes you realise you’re actually there! Can’t wait to go back!

    We are also staying in NYC for 4-5 days before we head back home :( Short trip for us due to work commitments.. but can’t wait to make the most of it!

    Thanks Rosie, will definitely go on the Staten Island Ferry straight up. Can’t wait for the shopping! Hopefully there’s heaps of 4th July sales..

    Hey guys! I have booked this trip as well! I’m from Ireland and will be doing it solo. Very excited!! Did G Adventures tour in Asia and loved it. First time using Contiki!

    Haven’t booked my flights yet but thinking of heading to NYC 2nd July or should I allow more time to explore? Will be heading to San Francisco after the tour.

    Looking forward to meeting everyone! :)
