    Sounds good :) I’m from Melbourne and I’m going with my cousin. I was going to do it solo but he was keen too so we thought we’d might as well go together. We’re also planning on doing a week in NYC before the trip and then 2 days after the trip In LA. Have you ever been on a contiki before?

    I’ve booked this tour! So many places I’m looking forward to and going during spring break time in America should make this tour pretty crazy!

    I am hoping to do this tour, I did the first half of this tour (eastern discovery) and I want to do the whole thing there is so many places I want to see again. But I have to find out how longer break between work tours I have to see if I have enough time to do this.

    Best decision you guys have ever made I did this tour in August it was the best experience I have ever had met amazing people all the smaller cities were probably my favourite apart from New York City… Girls be good with your money because once you hit New York you’ll spend spend spend haha .. Enjoy if anyone has any questions feel free to ask :)

    I’m booked in for this tour. Leaving from NZ. I’m a bit concerned about washing/laundry hahaha. Hayley, any advice?

  • 18 Dec 2013 hayleyhorowitz said


    There are laundry stops at almost every hotel just dont do it in vegas its too hectic haha I did it at the grabd canyon but it is a mission and a half to get there. Your tour guide will let you know at every stop when is good to do your washing :)
