    I think you two are going to be on the same trip. Americans and Canadians start their trips 2 days earlier because it includes travel to London. I’m pretty sure you are both on the trip that leaves london on the 4th though so you will be together.

    I was just about to book but the 4th july tour isn’t guaranteed to depart? are there many people in the meet up group? x

    There’s loads of tours that are full and they don’t have a guaranteed departure. Yeah not too worried about it to be fair its prime summer time !

    Spoke to a guy at contiki he said its a busy time and he said its unlikely it wont depart so its all good! are you both staying at the hotel the night before?

  • 4 Apr 2013 DemiBlackbourn said


    your welcome! well contiki is a basement underneath a hotel in london where we depart from so they recommend the royal national hotel which is above them.

    Experience the Europe in Contiki style! A tour comprising enormous fun for those who want the greatest moment in Europe. The second half of the tour was full of heart touching sceneries.
    Well this would be my second contiki, definitely going to enjoy this summer.

    Hi guys! I’m thinking of booking this tour leaving the on July 2nd! I’ll be going alone and really looking forward to it. Who else is going?

  • 1 May 2013 Emily said


    I feel like ive missed out on a whole discussion already! Im coming solo too! From Canada. Ill arrive early morning of the second. Will anyone else be there at that time? I wasnt sure if Contiki already had us booked into a hotel for that date or not. My guide says July 2nd check in.
