There are two tenses present continuous and be going to sometimes as they are the same ok going to for planning but in this activity I can ´t make my mind

For the first three, either "going to" or present continuous works, although present continuous sounds a little more natural.
 
For "And where are you going to stay/staying?", either sounds natural.
 
After that, the "going to" form sounds better. For the fourth from the end, too much is cut off, but Lydia seems to be asking, "... but what are you going to do while you ´re there?" This one definitely needs "going to", as does the rest of the dialogue.
 
Unfortunately, I ´m just going by how it sounds to me, and can ´t give you a reason for any of my answers.

The first three are ´going to ´. We use future going to for things that we have planned to do in future. Moreover, we use present continuous to express near future. However, I believe the first three answers are going to be future going to.The forth is ´are staying ´. We use present continuous to express temporary situation. They are staying at their friends ´ during their vacation only. The rest is future going to as they are talking and asking about plans.
