#1

Hi guys! I’ve just booked to go on this tour! Anyone else coming along? :slight_smile:


#2

Hi, I am booked in to the Northern Explorer starting 12th June. I’m pretty sure I’ll be with the Grand Kiwi group for the first week. :slight_smile:


#3

Awesome! I think you will be!! Will you be doing the rock the boat tour for the first night? I’ve booked in to do it :slight_smile:


#4

Yeah I am doing the rock the boat tour. Not much longer to wait for the tour now which is exciting.


#5

That’s so good! Did you book the tour long ago… Or just recently? I booked it last week. Nothing like a spontaneous trip! :stuck_out_tongue: I’ll be travelling solo for the very first time… So I’m a bit nervous, but excited at the same time! :slight_smile:


#6

I’m the same I only booked last week and I am also travelling solo. You’ll be fine when I have gone on other tours solo most other people have been travelling on their own as well. I arrive in Auckland on Friday night the 9th and am flying from Sydney airport. How about you? :slight_smile:


#7

Cool. I fly from Sydney to Auckland on the 11th. I kind of wish I was flying the day before so I could visit hot beach. You have many plans on your extra couple of days in Auckland?


#8

I’m catching up with a friend I met in America when I did Contiki USA that lives in Auckland but other than that I am not too sure. I want to see the Skytower in Auckland and do some shopping lol. I hadn’t heard of hot beach so I just googled it and it looks awesome!


#9

The Skytower is also on my list of places to visit. Do you need to pre-book? I’m staying next door to it :slight_smile:


#10

Cool, No you don’t need to pre-book the skytower that I know of and it is open till 10pmduring the winter months. I might check out the casino while I am there.


#11

Hey, I’m also on the northern explorer on the 12th! Doing the rock the boat trip on the first night as well :slight_smile:


#12

You going to jump from the Skytower or do the Skywalk? :slight_smile:


#13

Guess we’ll all meet up together then! :slight_smile:


#14

Hey! I’ve just booked this tour today during my work lunch break haha so excited🙌 2 more weeks


#15

Haha! Very Spontaneous!
Everyone should download the topdeck app… then we could start a group chat :slight_smile:


#16

So far only two people on the app for the northern explorer tour on the 12th. App seems to be a bit temperamental!


#17

Oh bummer… i would’ve thought that all the different tours part of the grand kiwi tour would have those people added to the same chat.


#18

Yeah sucks! So far connected with one person on Facebook :slight_smile: guess it’ll be a surprise until we get there haha


#19

Not as this stage lol. It is forcast to rain on Saturday with scattered showers on the Sunday. I picked up my itenary etc from the travel agent yesterday and she said there are about 30 people booked in so far for the Northern Explorer. :grinning:
