Anyone interested in a visit to CERN

I would like to visit the European centre for nuclear research (CERN) near Geneva.
They do guided tours in English for groups and it is free.
The tour can also be on a Saturday - however there is a waiting list and the next available dates are Jane/Feb 2013.
I tried to make a booking enquiry (you have to give 2 alternative possible dates) but got stuck when they asked for a second contact name.
The groups size would be 20 people.
so . . . .
  1. Is anyone interested in going? (yeh, yeh I know some of you can`t think beyond next week)
  2. Would anyone be willing to be the second contact name? If so please PM me your name, e-mail address and phone number.
If there is interest and when I have made the booking, I will post it as an event.

Re: Anyone interested in a visit to CERN

Thanks - second name has been received - confirmation from CERN website of our visit request has also now been received.
Confirmation, hopefully, of a Satruday visit in either late Jan or early Feb 2013 should arrive within 5 days - at which time I will make it official . . . . fingers on the buzzers please.

Re: Anyone interested in a visit to CERN

Basher, great idea. I only have one problem with the timing: at the end of January/early February, I will have already moved away from CH. So if there is any possibility that some surprise spots open before December this year, I am interested and you can put me down. Otherwise, have fun!

I didn't think he needed 20 people as second names for the application. He'll just need 20 participants when the date's fixed. (or at least that's how I understood it)

Bingo! Thank you that Lady.
There is no list yet peeps so just hold fire - I should get the confirmation wtihin 5 days max. So look out for the event.
There is already quite a bit of interest so I may have to contact them and say `Please Sir . . . can I have some more?`
I will try to contact those of you who have already expressed interest - to give you a `heads-up``

Re: Anyone interested in a visit to CERN

This does sound cool. Would you be willing to go on a weekday if there's a slot available?

I'm interested too, couldn't they move their tunnels a bit closer to civilization though?

Re: Anyone interested in a visit to CERN

My husband and I visited CERN in December 2010. Sadly, we weren't able to get a tour, but we did visit their Microcosm and Universe of Particles exhibits, which were very cool.

I was thinking that CERN wasn't giving tours anymore, but if you or anyone does take one, I'd love it if you shared your experiences of it here.
