European Escapade August 2013 - Who's going?! :D

30 Oct 2012 Sarah asked


I haven't chosen a date yet but looking to book for late August, also planning on staying in London afterwards to live and work. Does anyone else have a similar plan?!

    I did the same trip this year, IT WAS AMAZING. Had the best group and tour manager and we had so much fun. I wish it never ended!

    I can’t decide whether I want to stay in England for a bit before my tour or afterwards. What is everyone’s opinion? What do you think would be better?

  • 4 Nov 2012 Sarah said


    Is anyone looking at doing it at the end of August? I was wanting to book one of the last tours for 2013 so I have a chance to save as much as I can until then! As I will also be paying the tour off.

    Adele – I might stay both before and for a week or two after in England. Although I’d love to see Scotland too.. hmmm.

  • 4 Nov 2012 Adele said


    Yeah I was also thinking of doing that Sarah. I definitely want to arrive at least a day or two before the tour starts because I don’t want to start off the tip having jet lag. But I also really want to see Belgium and taste the chocolates and stuff because I am studying patisserie so I don’t want to go all that way and not go.

    Hey, I have booked the August 24th trip finishes a couple of days before Oktoberfest starts, so mighty have to attend that. Never been overseas, can’t wait. I have only booked the one night stay before trip, shouldn’t be hard to stay somewhere before hand for going over there earlier.

    Hey, I have booked the September 16th trip if anyone ended up booking later. Adele I think you should stay after your contiki as then you will have a bit of a feel for London and know your way around a bit, also you may end up making friends/connections that can help you out while you are staying on afterwards. Oktoberfest sounds amazing Tyson. My contiki will be in Munich for Oktoberfest cant wait!

    Hi, a friend and I (two girls) have booked the tour starting 18th Aug (Berryone says 19th but it may be 18th???) and ending 11th Sept. We are both first time travelers to Europe and are also doing the Aegean Classic tour around the Greek islands after (15th Sept – 20th Sept) – should be a blast :)
