I am travelling alone on the reefs and rainforest tour on 27th Febuary 2014... is anyone else going on this tour or have any advice? I am a little nervous about travelling alone so would be great to hear from other people's experiences!

    I’ve travelled alone on other Contiki tours and it was fine. Most tours have a dinner or something the night before they start which is a good way to find a tour buddy. Go along, be friendly, be genuine and ask people questions about themselves. Hopefully you will meet at least of couple of people you really click with. Part of being on a Contiki tour is about pushing your limitis and trying new things so don’t be afraid to put yourself out there – everyone is there to have fun. Also one of the advantages of traveling alone is that you can do exactly what you want so don’t be afraid to leave the group and go exploring solo occasionally.

    Hi, I’ve just returned from this tour (starting Sydney), you will have an amazing time and will meet people who will be in your life forever. its natural to be nervous but honestly this will be a life changing experience. I recommend doing the sailing option to the whitsunday’s (if you’re not booked on the 2 day sailing option) and also the one to the great barrier reef. I highly recommend white water rafting and diving in the great barrier reef. Enjoy every minute of it and if you need any tips on anything please do not hesitate to message me.

    Any other recommendations for the optional activities? (or one to avoid?)…I noticed they have quite a few listed for Cairns & Surfers Paradise, and most of them are extremely appealing to me, so I’m having trouble deciding, thankfully I have lots of time before making a decision.
    Do you mind if i asked how much money you budgeted for the optional excursions?

    I’m doing this tour starting December 5th (start Cairns). Getting pretty excited now, but I’m also really nervous as I’ll be travelling on my own. Anyways, I’m going to have some fun, relax, meet new people, push my limits, … It’s gonna be AWESOME!!!!

    Hi, I felt the same way too during my first solo travel but then afterwards the excitement and experiences make it worth it a try. It was a Blast Actually !

    I’m on this tour but starting Sydney Feb 16 so I am guessing these tours meet up along the way some where!
