    I have never gone alone to something… I am also 30 and I have heard the groups can be a lot younger with a ton of alcohol infused partying with people hooking up. I love partying but not like I did in high school or at 19…

    I’ve heard the same thing. I’m 28 and have also died down on the partying. I am thinking of doing either a European vaca or Australian. Haven’t decided yet.

    I am a bit torn… It’s a long haul if you get a crappy group or a bunch of 20 year olds… lol

    I know right! Which European trip were you thinking? I was planning either Italian espresso or Mediterranean highlight because I really wanted to go to Spain to brush up on my Spanish skills.

    Likely something in Spain or Latin America. I had actually planned to a trip to London, Barcelona, Madrid and Ibiza and it would have been about 8 grand for 3 weeks. I backed out. I am reluctant to book a 2 or 3 week contiki and perhaps get there and not enjoy it. Definitely have to take the plunge but I do worry about all the young kids that can be on the trip…

    G’day everyone, I am coming to Europe from the 21st of june, through to about the 6th of August. I’ve been around Europe twice now, both times in winter, and one was on a Contiki tour when I was 19. I can only speak from my tour, but we had 50 people from 18 through to early 30’s. Some were taken and others single, and a few, including myself, were travelling solo. We did go drinking most nights, if not all (from memory, a bottle of wine was at the table for most dinners) however it was nothing like full on partying and hooking up like most people hear.

    I’m also 30 years old and have booked “Best of Europe (start in Amsterdam)” for July 9, 2013. This will be my second Contiki tour. I just did Thailand Island Hopper in February. I loved it. There were a lot of 18/19 year old “kids” , who did part their a****s off and some did hook up. But it wasn’t anything outrageous. They were having fun and were all very nice and friendly, not annoying in the least bit. there were also quite a few of us “adults” who were on the tour. Sometimes we partied as well, other times we called it an early night! There really weren’t problems with any of us. We all became a big family :) And you don’t need to be in the mix if you don’t want to be. You can be as secluded as you want I’d say. Keep in mind this was also Thailand which is pretty much a party destination. We didn’t have early days or strict time schedules like you would on a European tour; so that might curb some of the wild nights. I’m actually looking forward to going on another, and this time I will be solo so it should be interesting!
