    Im going on the Easy Rider. Its a 32 day camping tour around Europe. Im doing the 25th June tour. You should check it out, it looks like its gonna be pretty good and probably have mostly 18 to early 20 year olds going.

    Hi Victoria, I am doing the European Escapade on the 31st of July (its a concept tour) and i know, by what you have said, that you don’t like the sound of cabins but the trip includes the hotel stay as well which is mixed into all the rest. Unfortunately we do not go to the Corfu Resort but I think that we cover every where else. I will be on tour for 25 days which is about just over three weeks so it could be an option for you to consider.

    Some people do a couple of tours, one after the other.. Im doing Greek Island Hopping 4 June, apparently its the best!! :)

  • 14 Feb 2013 Victoria said


    Thanks for all the replies! Was thinking about doing two tours, does the Greek island hopping start in Greece though how are you getting there! Haha

  • 14 Feb 2013 Jacqui said


    Yeah it starts in Athens, im from Australia so im just flying straight to Athens from here (stops in Dubai for a couple of hours though) You should do it :) Its my first contiki so im really nervous but more excited and there are heaps of other people out there that are going solo too im sure.. I saw a few other tours that had a 3 day Greek Islands part at the end, i just didnt see the point in only being there for 3 days, it wont go to all the cool islands that i want to party at so im doing this tour then ill do another one that goes around other parts of Europe later in the year :)
    What dates/months suit you for going away?

    So not enough people are going on the easy rider so ive changed to the European Encounter and then staying in London for a few days afterwards. Its 16 days and a time out tour so you stay in hotels. Check it out cause it looks pretty good.
