Hi Hun Just a question for you and the other people on your meet up page 1) are you booking your ticket up the Eiffel Tower prior to departing for the tour? I called contiki today and the guy advised to do so to make sure you get to do it (as it is not included in the tour) and to prevent waiting. I looked up the website to book for August 21st or 22nd and the tickets aren't available for purchase until May 23rd (next Friday!!). Would like to book the same time as you guys if you are going to do so? I was thinking 9/10am... 2) are you getting your Egypt visa before the tour or getting it when you arrive at the airport? I've read some forums that say you can get it at the airport and it only takes 10mins but if something did go wrong it can hold up the tour and mean you don't continue on with them.... So I was going to apply for the visa in the next few days.... Any thoughts? Thanks heaps

    Ahhk no worries thanks Brittany. I just looked at the site and all the days at almost booked out :/ I managed to book for thurs 21st at 3.30pm (fingers crossed this works out well with the tour schedule, I'm 90% sure the 2nd day is free time. If not it's $20 down the drain, oh we'll lol) Awesome Shelby (: il come with you on your sight seeing adventure (: but il have to leave you at some point for my Eiffel Tower tour around 3pm :P Talking about this = overload of excitement :D

    they've all said there planning on buying tickets there because they've asked people that have gone and heard the lines aren't bad. and they thought that contiki organized it

    sorry about the delayed reply the contiki page hasnt been allowing me to sign in. I've asked everyone but still waiting on a response. oh yeah that makes sense have they gotten back to you and let you know what days will be free time?

    Hey Kylie! I've actually travelled up the eiffel tower before when I did an exchange in Paris, so I think i'm going to use my off time to explore something else ( like Notre dame, as I did not go inside the last time I was in Paris) but I will definately walk over to ' la tour eiffel" with you all the morning you go to do it! Its so spectacular, going up is definately a Must! I believe when I did it, we had our tickets in advnace (a great idea, as you will have to wait in line for purchasing the tickets, as well as waiting in a separate line to actually go up the tower) so if you get the tickets in advance then you will eliminate one of the lines!!!

    Hey guys! Yes i found out from someone at contiki that we should get our Visa's for Turkey in advance, and those travelling on the Egypt trip, its better, cheaper and more convenient to obtain the Visa upon arrival !

    Oh yeah I'm an idiot lol forgot you weren't doing Egypt ha ha Well on the itinerary it says we have 1-2 days of free time in Paris so I was going to double check with the contiki people which day is best.. Okay cool let me know how it goes. I think I will also organise the visas in advance just to be sure. There's only 2 others on my trip :/ When I booked it the tour wasn't a definite departure and it had me worried only have 7 of us but when I had a look today it is now a definite departure so perhaps not many people have signed into the meet up yet. Hopefully they do soon!

    Hey :) oh i hadnt thought about that. How will we know when to book it though to know when we will have free time? I have friends that went on this tour so ill also ask them what most people did but ill ask the others on the meet up page theres only 3 others! Is there many on your meet up page? Our meet up page wont need an Egypt visa because were all the ones going to the Greek Island option however i have been informed that we need to get a Turkey visa by one of the Contiki people so i was going to organise my visa in the next few days :)
