I want to know more about the Scanadanavia Tour

Hi, I was thinking about doing the Scandinavian tour later this year or maybe next summer and I wondered about the accommodations and the tour itself. I would start the tour in Copenhagen and end it in Stockholm. On the tour page it says hotels for the accommodation but then on the side of the page it lists that only one night is in a hotel, the rest in hostels. So they stay in hostels? It also says quad share but there are free upgrades to twin share. Is there no single supplement for this tour? Do we get to chose our roommates (like will they all be Contiki people or are they sometimes people who aren't on the tour)? If we aren't happy with our roommates can we switch? If we are staying in hostels are they nice hostels? (a list of where they currently stay right now would be great) Do we need to bring a towel and pay for hot water with tokens at reception in the hostels? or is hot water included and do we have our own bathroom or do we share a dorm bathroom down the hall from the room? I see there is a good description of how to get from the airport in Copenhagen to the hostel but the description of the hotel in Stockholm to the airport is non-existent and the description of airport to hotel is very confusing. Is there anything super important that you think future travelers should know about this tour? It used to be super easy to find out information about hotels/hostels and the tour itself but now they barely tell you anything until you sign up for the tour and are already committed. I prefer to know what I am getting myself into so anyone who has been on the tour in the past year or so who could shed some light on this tour I would appreciate it. My emails to Contiki have been ignored for months and I don't have time to do a Live Chat session at the moment. Thanks. Hopefully someone can answer these questions.

Great Britain and Ireland 17th April 2014

Hi, I am doing the Ireland portion of this tour and I would like to meet people who are either doing the Ireland portion (26th April - 3rd May) or the whole slog. I did the Scotland tour a few years ago and it was nice to get to know some people before I went because that way I didn't feel completely left-out, what with everyone else having been together since the start of the tour. Anyone who is doing this tour and wants to chat I'd love to meet you. Birdie

Questions about General Things

Hi, Question #1: Is the past Traveler discount still something that is available? It used to be if you had traveled with Contiki within 5 years you got like 5 or 10% off your next tour. Is this still a thing? Of course my travel agent didn't apply it on either of my 2010 tours when it should have been applied to them both. Question #2: I have done 3 past tours with Contiki but I don't know how to add them onto my Profile. When I went on my first tour in 2005 I didn't know there was a website because my sister booked me in on the tour. And I used a different email address here, an address I no longer have access to, for my 2010 tours (I went on the Scotland Tour and the 15 Day New Zealand tour in 2010).
