London Explorer (4 nights)

Great package to see london!

07 Sep 2015 - 11 Sep 2015

This is such a great way to see london alone. You stay with all other contiki travellers and get around on your own.
We did this before our europe trip. Hop on hop off bus tour is great recommend extending it to 48 hours instead!
With the contiki basement you get discounted rates for all attractions
Recommend the London Eye, London Dungeon, tower bridge tour.

Also look into doing a london pub crawl. One of the best highlights of my European trip. Alcohol is nothing like home hahaha.

I love London

29 Feb 2016 - 04 Mar 2016

This short explorer was amazing,

I covered all of London in just 4 days before my 24 day contiki winter wanderer in Europe.

You get so many coupons and flyers that you can use those days which come in handy. You also get an underground card for the metro which you can use to get to places rather then catching taxis everywhere.

You get things a lot cheaper doing this explorer rather then doing it yourself cause the contiki discounts things. And the amazing thing is you can do whatever you want whenever you want. No time schedules or selected times which is great.

I highly recommend to use the bus tour, it's either toured via headphones on the bus or by a tour guide. You can hop on and off whenever you like and simply wait 10-15 mins for another bus to hop back on and get off to your new landmark. You find out so much history and information with these tours which really help when your walking around freely or even finding where to go.

I definantly recommend this to anyone, definantly started my holiday and experience perfectly!

Fantastic taste of London

09 Oct 2014 - 13 Oct 2014

This tour pack can be done in 3 days or more. I managed it in 3. The pack is so worth the money and is great for a taster of London. I tacked this on at the end of a 33-day Contiki around Europe, and it's all self-paced which made everything simple and easy. London is SO easy to get around, especially on the tube. Did this tour pack on my own and so greatful i did. Definitely worth it, I highly recommend this to anyone who has a few days in London on the way back.

Super helpful

11 Jun 2013 - 15 Jun 2013

We did the European magic tour but wanted to spend some time in london beforehand. Adding on the london explorer tour was clutch!

It was so helpful and convenient. They provided us with the hotel extension, tickets for a hop on hop off bus for a day, two days tube pass, a west end musical (we saw spamalot) and a tour for Windsor castle, bath and Stonehenge. It was a perfect way for us to see what we wanted but give us some sort of structure and home base for our visit. They also provided our tube tickets for getting in from and back to the airport. Score!

You sound like you're from London

19 Jul 2012 - 23 Jul 2012

Gives you a decent location to set yourself up for all that London offers. If you love The Beatles then take the short tube ride out to Abbey Road and get yourself a photo on the crossing! The included day tour to Windsor Castle, Bath and Stonehenge is a must do. Go and have a pint of Carlsberg (my beer of choice) in The London Pub and meet up with travellers from all around the world! Very handy that the Contiki Basement is also located in the hotel complex. The tube pass is very convenient- take advantage of it. London is an amazing city and this tour does it's best to compress it all into 5 days for you!

This is a great trip for those looking for a little taste of London and who aren't afraid to go it alone. While Contiki will provide a hotel and vouchers to some attractions, this is a SOLO trip. No group, no leader. Just you.

The London Explorer is a great package to make the most of pre-tour time in London. Contiki Basement staff were friendly and helped me book optional activities at discounted prices.

London Explorer

16 Sep 2011 - 20 Sep 2011

I was a bit concerned as this was my first solo trip and anxious what my roommate would be like. But my roommate was a gem and I had so much fun in London. I visited all the "touristy" places ie. Windsor Castle, Buckingham Palace, Westminster Abbey and Tower of London etc. The Contiki team was very helpful and the guided tours were entertaining. I was very lucky because the weather was great and it was so easy getting around walking or riding the tube.

I would recommend layered clothing and comfortable shoes are a must! Enjoy!
