the easy rider

23 Feb 2012 rachelemily23 asked


hey guys,
so i think i've decided i want to go on the easy rider tour, and my friend has also decided she wants to come with me.
but i have a few questions i'm hoping someone will be able to answer for me.
i pretty much want to know everything that anyone can tell me about this specific tour, details details details!
also, i was reading some discussions just before and someone mentioned that when you do the camping tours you camp a bit further out from the main parts of where you're staying so spend a lot of time at camp. is this true? coz i'm hoping to go out partying etc on at least some nights, will camping make this hard to do?
thirdly, im 19 years old, so wondering when the best time of the year to go would be if i want to tour with people more of similiar age? i was hoping for august coz thats probably the soonest i can go as im saving up really hard atm.
ta! :)

    I’m going on this in late August – I think the campgrounds are the same place as the cabins with hotels out of city too and I don’t think it’s stopped anyone yet!

    Hey! I did this tour last year. I loved it so much that I have booked and am going again in 3 months! You will have a ball. I am 25 and the majority of the tour were around 18 to 22. The camps are only 5-10 minutes away from the city so just cab it! We all did and had a great time.

    Cannot stress this enough…this is the best tour i have ever been on. July was awesome. So hot and started to cool down start of August when we finished the tour.

    Any other questions about this tour, please let me know. :)

    Thanks Tamara – I’m gathering together all the bits of info I can….not sure if I can stand the 5 months I have to go before I’m there. So looking forward to this :D

Im looking at booking the easy rider also and was wondering if you could tell me the names of the campsites you actually stay at? have found out some of the campsites already but would love to know all of them lol if you remember any of them i would greatly apprecate if :-)

    I’m going on this one end of June and I’m also 19. The only bad thing is that there aren’t many washing machines or power points so you have to get in quick. Hope this helps
