Modular tours are tours that have shorter tours operating within the itinerary of a longer tour.
This means that people on the shorter tours hop or hop off the bus during the longer tour at the city their tours starts or finishes in.
For example, the California Highlights (Las Vegas to LA) tour is a module of the longer Wild Western tour (LA to LA). People travelling on the the California Highlights meet up and tour join the tour in Las Vegas. The Tour began as the Wild Western tour began a few days before in LA and both will finish together in LA.
The same bus is used and all the tours are run by the same tour manager and driver.
It is therefore common to have people who have booked on different tours travelling together on the same bus for either part of all of the longer tour.
As with all Contiki Tours, you should make your way to the hotel where your tour is departing from and you will receive this information in your Contiki Travel Documents and usually the same tour manager and driver will run all the modular tours for the entire length of the longest tour.
The first part of the Grand Canadian is a part of the Grand Northern (up to Toronto) at which point the tour splits and the people on the Grand Canadian Tour fly to Vancouver to meet up with and join those on the Canada and the Rockies tour along with a new tour manager and driver
