    Just wondering what travel insurance you guys are getting? Got some quotes through travel agents and then did a few online with the same company and there so much cheaper online….. Any help would be great Thanks…..

    P.s Chris and Ryan where are you guys in melb?

  • 4 Dec 2010 Chris713 said


    Leebee- we got the insurance they offer at Escape Travel, I think it’s called Covermore and cheaper than I was expecting.

    We are from glen waverley area. How about you? How long you going overseas for??

    Hi All,

    Have been going through the planning process for awhile but think I am chaning the leaving date due to work to this trip – was looking at the 29th of April tour first.

    What are people planning on doing after this tour? Anyone going to be checking out London for a bit?


  • 13 Dec 2010 Chris713 said


    Hi Ash,

    We’ve got a tour about a week after this one the Greek Island hopping one, so will have about a week afterwards to explore London before we fly to greece.

    Hi Everyone,

    I’m coming from Montreal and will actually arrive real early on May 9th.

    There’s the possibility of going around and visit London on our own using “the original London sightseeing tour” that I’m planning on doing.

    I read that some of you will arrive early as well so anyone who’s interested, tell me!

    It’d be great to meet and tour with you earlier :P

  • 16 Jan 2011 Chris713 said


    I think we arrive the day before as we are doing Dubai beforehand. Would be good to meet anyone staying in the hotel the night before. The week after this tour we ahve free in London, we have about a week before we are off to the Greek Island hopping tour Smiler<!--graemlin::)-->

    Hi Guys

    Frowner<!--graemlin::(--> Sad face, we had to move our trip to the following one on May 17th!! Maybe see you on the way somewhere who knows! Have fun!!!!

  • 2 Feb 2011 leebee said


    Hey everyone only 3 months to go!!! YAY It sounds like a few of us will be at the hotel the night before the tour. We should all plan to meet up for a drink and chats.. Would be good to meet before the tour starts. What does everyone think??? :)

  • 2 Feb 2011 Rat Nut said


    By “evening before” if you mean on the 10th of May, I think that the tour expect us to meet then since in the “detailed itinerary”, it says for “Day 2: Arrive London” that we’re meeting the group at 6pm.
