    I’m thinking about doing this tour next year, My name is Clare and I’m from England. I went on a Contiki trip this year and loved it. I’m thinking of doing this trip as it will be my 30th birthday when we would be away.

    Hello, I am from South Africa and working in America (Between Palm Beach, FL & New York). I have signed up for this tour. I am travelling alone, I am 23 years, female. Looking forward to it! Are most people staying an extra post night in LA? Michelle

    I just booked this trip today, it’s still a bit early to be excited but I am nervous as this will be my first trip o/s by myself.

  • 8 Jan 2009 Michelle Andrea said


    Same here! Also my first trip by myself but I am excited! Where are you from?

  • 8 Jan 2009 LisaMichele said


    I am so nervous I feel like I want to cancel but I am already paid. I guess it is nervous excitement. I am 21 from Adelaide (South Aust.) I have been through Western Europe on a Kumuka tour and through the UK and New Zealand and Singapore but that was with family. I really wish I could find someone from Adelaide doing it so we could meet up beforehand I am not good at making friends.

    Yes it seems like the right choice! Sounds very excitingSmiler<!--graemlin::)--> Can’t wait.

  • 25 Jan 2009 LisaMichele said


    Hey Michelle are you spending anytime in LA before or after the tour starts? I’ve got 2 nights in LA beforehand and 1 night after and I’m afraid I don’t know what to do with myself? Have you been to LA before?

  • 29 Jan 2009 Michelle Andrea said


    Hey LisaMichele I have one night in LA in the beginning and one in the end. (pre and post night). I have never been to LA. But I am sure there’s sooo much to do! I am very excited, and also travelling alone so would be cool to keep in touch. I am planning to get to LA asap on May 26th…

  • 30 Jan 2009 LisaMichele said


    May 26th? But the tour starts on 13th May?

    Hi Everyone

    My wife and i are hoping to book this tour on Tuesday the 3rd of Feb. I am Irish but she is from Brazil so she needs a visa, we are going to the US Embassy in Dublin and if successful then we will book it right away.

    I have done this tour already in 2005 and it is one of the best to see the West of America so i want to show her everything.

    We will be in LA on the 9th of May and after the tour ends we plan to fly back to Las Vegas for 4 more days, staying maybe at the MGM Grand

    Fingers crossed for the visa.

    Til then…………..Slainte

    SORRY I mean arrive in LA on the 12th May early. which airport are u flying to, SNA or LAX??

  • 5 Feb 2009 LisaMichele said


    Hi Michelle

    I arrive on the 11th May at about 5:00pm so I will probably be hitting the hay pretty much straight away as it is about an 18 hour flight! Oh and I am coming through LAX and have quite a trip to get to Anaheim bout an hour and a half I hear! How about you? Where is SNA?

  • 26 Feb 2009 Michelle Andrea said


    SNA is way closer to the hotel we meeting at, but I might also fly to LAX cause it seems to be cheaper. Will prob arrive early afternoon. I am going to organise the Super Shuttle so I have a ride to Anaheim. You must do that too! Apparently they’re very good… I am SO excited for this trip!!
