    Hey everyone,

    Im going to Europe April 08 i want to do the European Explorer but I havent seen anyone else make a posting about it?! still trying to decide what to do but have my heart set on a contiki! Confused<!--graemlin::confused:-->

    I am definitely doing the Explorer but in late May!! I can’t wait!!!! I think it is a fairly new tour which is why there isn’t as much info posted about it. Its the longest superior tour and although I would love to do the Ultimate European I can’t be away for that long.

    My bf and I are planning on doing the European Inspiration July 08. We’ve been talkin bout it for ages, should be fun!!! Wink<!--graemlin:;)-->

    I prebooked my European Whirl last week. Planning on going sometime in Early May 2008 like May 6th [Tuesday] or May 9th [Friday] if they have one that leaves on either of those dates.

    Hey all!

    I’m starting to plan my trip too! I’m planning to do the Ultimate European in April/May(-ish) of 2008. I see a few of you are also looking at that tour! I also want to do the Scandinavia & Russia and/or venture off on my own to the countries the tours didn’t hit.

    It all depends on my money situation. I’ll hopefully be finished my degree by then, so I’ll be free as a bird to travel til my heart desire!

    Hey fridays child
    I am planning on doing pretty much the same trip. I have made a tentative booking with my travel agent so I can get the early bird discounts. Hopefully the dates will be roughly the same as this year (I am looking at around April 22).

    I’m heading to the US first and then over to London…
    You should check out my other post in the Contiki meeting place section under ‘late spril 2008’. There are some others that I think are looking at the same time.

    Do you want to do Mykonos or Egypt?

    Hey Miss Janeo

    yah I saw your posts from the other forums. There are lots of ppl thinking about it, so I’m glad there will be some ppl on the tour!

    I wanted to do the Mykonos, but this trip is a graduation gift so, I’m selfishly going to choose Egypt (although I would love to venture off during that one week, or simply relax).

    I decided to do another europe tour before the UE, so I’m definitely looking at late april. I have to back for June convocation though:S boo!

    Great to see everyone planning ahead. Myself and 5 other friends are planning to go in late May or early June of 2008. We are sitting down tonight to narrow down the different European tours into a list that satisfies everyone, I’m leaning toward a 14-21 day tour. Does anyone have suggestions on whether to go through a travel agent or just straigh through contiki?

  • 21 Jun 2007 Jeremy said


    Mmerlis, I dont know about travel agents, but if you prebook before the next brochure comes out they have a $100 discount. It helps with the cost going up for inflation. I heard before that travel agents should get you that same discount, but I have yet to find anything where I could get it cheaper. Hopefully someone else has suggestions for that

    Hey all, Im thinking of doing a your in June/July 2008, at this stage im looking at the Eurpoean Panorama, will most likely be traveling alone, have done a US contiki before which was awesome. Anyone else thinking of doing the same tour around that time? Cheers.

    Hows it going everyone. I’ve been looking at doing the European Highlights Tour sometime in June/July. But prior to that, in order to get the most out of my leave from work I was thinking of maybe running with the Bulls in Pamplona.

    I was looking at either Contrasts or Panorama…not sure which yet. prob around july/august.

    i thought id check out the forums and see who i might be going with! that will help me decide!

    I want to go on the European Escapade on the 22nd september 2008

    I think from memory the 2008 info comes out around October as Tanya mentioned. I went in to see flight centre in the city (perth) and they told me that they are holding a European holiday convention at the Convention Centre in November and that you will be able to get cheap flights, travel insurance and still be eligible for the early bird discounts. Good news for the Perth people and I’m sure they would be doing similar in the other Australian capitals.

    Im planning on European Experience and also the Oktoberfest tour. If you go in the first week of the off season I’ve heard its still warm and that bit quieter (and cheaper).
