Hey I’m looking at this tour too! Not exactly sure what dates I’m going to book, but most likely a June or early July departure… Looks so awesome! :slight_smile:

#5

Me too! Looking to go in June sometime. I am also a solo traveller. I will be in england from January. Is anyone else staying long term before/after their trip?


#6

Hey guys!
u shud def do the 5th june tour :slight_smile:
chantelle im not staying long term after the trip but am hopefully guna stick around for a good few weeks after the tour! so excited!!


#7

Hey!

The tour looks so good, have decided to do the tour that leaves on 17th April! So excited! :slight_smile:


#8

Early June would be a good time to go, better than July august when it’s super hot and there will be wayyyy too many tourists. I’ll have a think about it anyway :slight_smile: I’m doing a working holiday for 2012 in England, I’ll be touring around in between. Is anyone planning to stay at the clink78 before or after the tour coz I probably will be. Would be great to know someone as I’ll be on my own!


#9

hey chantelle cool a working holiday sounds awesome! yuuup i wil most likely be staying at the clink before and after the tour 4 the convenience and then its a good chance 2 catch up and meet people on your tour before you go! :slight_smile:

Hey guys,

I’m also looking at this tour (5 June departure) and just had a question - has anyone else had a look at the Ultimate European Contiki tour? I’m so undecided! Everyone has given me mixed reviews and I’d love to know why you’ve chosen Top Deck.

Cheers!


#11

Oh wow see the reason I picked top deck was because I couldn’t find a similar contiki one! But thanks to you I may end up going with contiki as I’m doing a top deck in February I’d like to try one of each. Wow thanks so much for pointing out a similar one. I’d say I’ll be on the contiki for this one now :slight_smile:


#12

Hey Kate, yup I had looked at the ultimate european contiki but decided 2 go with topdeck because I wanted to do the sailing part and go 2 dubrovnik which contiki doesn’t do on that tour. also topdeck has quite a few more included meals than the contiki one and from what I’ve heard topdeck gives u a bit more free time on the tours!! but yea it was a tough decision 4 me but i ended up going with topdeck on the 5th june departure! :slight_smile:


#13

Hey Chantelle - Any reason you’re leaning towards contiki over topdeck?


#14

Oh and Kimberly - Are you staying at the Clink beforehand?


#15

hey kate yup will def be staying at the clink before hand! just makes things easier :slight_smile:


#16

Hey Alysha! If I can finally decide on what to do, I would leave on April17 too! (I’m not sure yet whether to go alone backpacking or to do the Topdeck tour… Soon to be decided!) Obviously I would stay at the Clink a few days before leaving just to get to know the London area! I’m letting you know when I make the final decision! With the 10% discount offered til Sept 30, I gotta make it quick…!

Oh, and nice to meet you guys! :slight_smile:


#17

Hey guys

i just saw this post and thought i would let you know that i have just finished the 49 day Mega European tour - it was completely amazing!!

So if you have any questions i can try and answer them :slight_smile:

Carly.

Hi Carly!

Wow, glad to hear that the tour is amazing!!
I have heaps of quetions haha.

  • what is the weather like and what are the best things to pack?
  • is there anything that you wish you had taken that you didnt?
  • or anything that you took that you really didn’t need?
  • when in switzerland was it possible to do both the jungfrau excursion as well as the skydiving? I really want to do both!!
  • what are the best optionals on the trip?
  • how was the sailing part of the trip?
  • I am thinking of taking an ipod touch with me to keep in touch with people, is there many places that have free wifi in europe?

I will probably have more questions later on but this is what I can think of now :slight_smile:

Thank you!
Kimberly

Kate, I decided on contiki because I’m doing a top deck winter tour so I thought I’d try one on each. Also the contiki is around $1000 cheaper for pretty much the same tour. Skipping Croatia is the only major difference I found. I’ve heard good things about both contiki and top deck but I’m keen to try one of each, and for a grand less as well I’m pretty happy :slight_smile:

Hi Carly - just a quick one: Did you take a backpack or suitcase?
I’d much rather take a suitcase to fit more stuff in but don’t want it to be annoying!
