    I’m surprised more people haven’t written on this board considering that the tour is full! I suspect that there won’t be many singles. Are you going to Disneyland or Universal? I am worried about going to these by myself haha could you imagine sitting on a ride by yourself, how depressing! Still exciting though.

    Okay so finally I booked my flight. Arring at LAX on the 12th May at 1:10pm, If anyone is also arriving around then let me know. Does one have to pre-book the supershuttle or just get on one when I arrive there?

    Hi Guys! Not long to go now. I arrive in LA midday on the 11th of May and also have a 3 days post tour that i have not booked yet so where is everyone staying?

    I don’t know whether to fly out of LA the night of the 26th May or stay another night? What is everyone doing?

    Michelle i think i will stay at Contiki hotel on the last night of trip as bus normally finish there trips around 6pm. Then i might hire a car for 3 days as i leave late on the 29th.

    Hi there,

    My name is Candice and my boyfriend Sean and I are doing this trip.
    It will be our first Contiki together, but my 4th.
    I have been to Italy, Greece and Egypt and loved them all.

    We are exploring for a few days in New York, Seattle and LA before joining the tour.
    I am so excited to see San Francisco and Las Vegas – I just know I am going to love it.
    We are both from Johannesburg South Africa.
    Hope to see you all soon.

    Travelbee, I am from South Africa too! Cape Town. Are you living and working in USA at moment?

  • 12 Apr 2009 Travelbee30 said


    Hi Michelle,

    Unfortunately we are not as lucky as you are. We both live and work in Jo’burg.
    However my boyfriend would love to move to the US.
    How long have you been there? I studied and worked there in 2002 – loved every minute.

    I have started counting the days until we leave for our trip, really looking forward to it now. We are going to New York for 3 days, then Seattle for 3 days and in LA on the 12th. So hopefully we bump into you then.
    We are staying at the Best Western Stovall’s Inn in Anaheim.

    Are you touring anywhere before the Contiki trip?

    Well I am counting the days already and starting to pack my bags, we leave SA in 18 days and then the fun begins…

    Sean and I are in LA for the day of the 12th, we arrive very early that morning and have rented a car to explore Anaheim and surrounds.

    After the tour ends, we fly directly to New York and back to Joburg, gotta get back to work sadly.

    Well guys, will check in again soon, but looking forward to meeting all of you.
    Candice and Sean
