    haha yeh you’re right, we got a bit of a wait yet! Yeh I think I will spend about 4 days in both LA and NY before and after, was looking into doing one of those short contiki tours in those cities but I think I’ll just do them on my own terms. How bout u? Where abouts you coming from?

    I’m from near Liverpool in England. I’m staying over in LA the night b4 in the hotel off the trip and planning on staying on in NY but not booked a hotel yet wanted to see what others were planning on doing first :)

    hey I’m doing this trip too, so pumped cannot wait, are you both going solo?

    Yeh mate I’m going solo, gonna be awesome. I see you’re from Sydney, if ya don’t mind me asking who are you flying with to get there? I’m from Brisbane and trying to organise a flight and just trying to do it as cheap as possible but I’m an idiot and didn’t book when AirNewzealand had a sweet deal going.

    I’m flying Qantas, I spent a heap though I have 8 flights booked & leave in August, so probs no good to you. I’ve got friends going next month though and pretty sure they got return flights with Qantas to LA for $1700.

    I havent really put that much thought into it yet, maybe $3000. And no haven’t done visa yet, they’re pretty easy just need to register online and print it off, I’d assume UK would be the same…

    Hi Steff I’m arriving on the 18th in LA but not sure where I’m going to stay yet. Probably some cheap accommodation somewhere but haven’t really looked into it yet. Have u booked accom before the tour? And Sarah that’s a good idea, can ya just start a group and the rest of us join? I don’t really know how it works haha

    i tried to book the accommodation with contiki the night b4 the tour but was already full ;/ so it will be somewhere cheap for me as well =) Planning to stay for like 4 nights in NYC after the tour as well , just have to organize my flights first ! : )

    Hey guys, thinking of booking this tour as well. Just feeling slightly nervous as it’s my first time travelling solo.

    I’m sure you’ll be right if you book, looks like everyone on here so far is going solo. the last tour I did pretty much everyone got along well and most of us still talk. Pre sure you won’t regret it :)

    Yeh it’s my 1st time travelling by myself as well but Im excited, Ive had really introverted friends do a contiki solo and came away from it just loving life with all these new people they met. I think doing a contiki is the best way to do it solo. Plus Vegas on the 1st night will be one hell of an ice breaker
