    Remi was wonderful, had some awesome slideshow presentations and facts for us whilst we were on the bus so we could find out more about where we were going. He did his best to find out the answers to any questions we might've had. Overall just great.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • Where and when does the tour end?

      On Day 16 of the tour your group will travel from Dublin to Liverpool, where the tour will end. The drop off point and suggested time of arrival will be in your final trip documents, which are sent 21 days before departure.

    • Where and when does the tour start?

      The adventure starts in London, where you will meet you group in the morning and set ff for a day of sightseeing, before boarding the coach and heading up to Liverpool. The time and place of the meeting point will be in your final trip documents, which will be sent 21 days before departure.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Airport transfers are not included in the tour cost and Contiki is unable to arrange transfers, so you will need to make your own way to the tour starting point. Contiki make sure that their meeting points are in well connected areas, so catching public transport shouldn't be a problem!

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • What is the age range?

      Contiki operates tours exclusively for travellers between ages 18-35. They are geared towards active, budget-minded young travellers who want to meet other people from all over the world, and tend to be very popular with students and backpackers. Due to this, children under the age of 18 and adults outside of the age range are not able to participate in this tour.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      Solo travellers do not have to pay a single supplement as this is a group trip designed for shared accommodation. You will be paired in twin or multi-share accommodation with someone of the same sex for the duration of the trip, which is a great way to get to know your group and enrich your travel experience!

      If you would prefer your own private room then you can pay a little extra to be upgraded. You can see the additional surcharge on the 'Book Now' page.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      Hotel lists for this trip are not confirmed until your final trip documents are released, which will be 3 - 4 weeks prior to departure. These will include all your specific accommodation details. The accommodation included in this tour is 15 nights in twin share rooms in specially selected, tried and tested quaint hotels.

    • Are the flights included?

      Flights before and after the tour are not included in the tour price and you need to arrange these separately by yourself once your tour is guaranteed. As we specialise in organising the best tours around the world for you, we are unable to advise on flight prices or book flights on your behalf. If you have not already booked your flights we recommend checking out the following link which is powered by Skyscanner -
