    As long as you’re between 18-35, you’re fine. I was 21 on my last tour and while I was closer to the younger end, I never felt weird about it. Everyone is there for the same reason, to meet like-minded travelers in your age range… that’s what Contiki is for! :) Don’t focus on your age and no one else will either.

    I guess it depends which tour you’re doing and what airport you’re flying into, but in general, there’s nobody there to meet you. You’ll have to find your way to the hotel either by cab, shuttle, or metro. Everybody meets up at the hotel which is where the kick-start meetings are usually held. Also, don’t be nervous! Contiki is amazing and I’m sure you’ll have a blast.
