Road Trip USA (ex. LA) May 2019



My name’s Amanda and I’m 24, a solo traveller from Aus. Have been looking at doing this trip in early May next year, curious to see if there are others thinking of doing the same :slight_smile:


Hey Amanda
I’m not on this trip but have just done a Topdeck trip in USA and it was amazing!! You wont regret it one bit!


Hey I’m Jaryd 22 and I am from Australia, I’ll be solo traveling and considering this trip early May 2019 :slight_smile:


Aw yay! I think my hardest decision at the moment is choosing between doing topdeck and Contiki for this one… they’re both much the same!


hehe, yeah they are pretty much the same.
We saw a contiki bus a couple of times on our travels

I did a Contiki tour in Europe and it was awesome too,
I felt though a bit more pressure on that trip to go our drinking EVERY night! definitely seemed more chilled with Topdeck and had more free time which was nice… plus I didnt want to be hungover for our days out sightseeing.

You’ll have a fab time no matter who you choose though.

I wrote the below post when i got back from my trip - it might have a few things in there that might help you choose :smiley:


i would have liked to do the Contiki one but it doesn’t fit in with my time line with Camp ill be working at! but yes they do look much the same!


Looks like I’ll be doing Topdeck from the 1st of May if I plan to go! Just gotta wait on uni results haha


I’ve put my name down for the 1st of May :blush:

Hi Amanda,

I am booked on this trip departing 1st May - are you going?

I will be arriving in LA on the 28th April and departing NY on the 29th May if you are interested in spending a couple of extra days doing sight seeing, tours etc.




Hi Ryan! Pretty sure I am now. I’m not sure when I’ll be heading over just yet but that sounds good

Does anyone by any chance know the accommodation listing for LA & NY?


Awesome! :slight_smile: Let me know what dates once you have it all worked out…

From what I have heard, it’s the Miyako Hotel in LA & Marrakech Hotel in NY.


Hey guys just paid this off today and I’ll be arriving in LA on the 30th of April :v:t3:


Hey Jaryd, that’s awesome! It’s definitely reassuring to see other solo travellers going on this tour. :+1:


Solo traveller from Aus here too I’m 23! Im doing Coachella weekend 12-14th April so I was thinking of doing the tour starting 17th April although could stay in LA a bit and start the top deck a bit later. Also looking at contiki not sure which one to pick haha x


Hey Alie, I’m doing the trip that starts on the 17th April! I haven’t done a Contiki tour but I have done a topdeck tour and it was the most amazing thing I’ve ever done.


Hey Alie!

All I can say is I’ve done both before, and loved them both but topdeck won for me.
It’s cheaper and it just has a better vibe to it :slight_smile:

I’m planning to pay this trip off by the end of the month, let us know what you decide!
