Tour Tips

  • If you want a more personal experience, pick a small group tour. These often offer more freedom and flexibility, plus the opportunity to meet other awesome travelers.
  • If you're on a stricter budget, the accommodations might not always be luxurious. But, they will still be more than comfortable and a great way to connect with other travelers.
  • Take time to eat at a family restaurant and get to know the locals. You can learn more from them than anyone.
  • Get to know the local culture by walking around street markets
  • Some tour operators offer 'meet up' apps to help you get to know your fellow travelers before the trip departs.
  • Let your guide know if you have any health issues such as food allergies or other dietary restrictions so they can try their best to accommodate you ahead of time.

Amazing Europe Trip

Mega European

Topdeck
Recommend: Yes
There are so many great things to say about my European trip of a lifetime. The people that made it was my fellow topdeckers and of course the Fab Tour guide Matt Stewart. This is a trip that I will never forget, so many lovely memories I will cherish forever. We was very lucky with Matt because he really took time to talk to us and make us all feel relaxed with each other and asked us what we wanted to do. He was so knowledgable about all the places we went to, I remember thinking to myself this guy is pretty cool the fact he knows so well about the history and culture of each place especially the amount of cities we travelled to. Matt made the trip fun, interesting, exciting and I hope that if I was to ever do a top deck again one day he would be the tour guide or I think I would be disappointed. Have recommended top deck to so many people, memories I will have for a lifetime.

I went on my first EF trip solo to Belize and it was absolutely amazing! Efrain was our tour director and he was wonderful! He was very funny and approachable if you had any questions. He made this trip so memorable with everything that went on. During the trip we had a couple of longer bus rides and he always found things to do along the way so we were not sitting for long periods of time. We also had free time after our activities which we loved because we got to go explore the areas on our own. The locals in Belize are also very very nice and very helpful if you do have any questions. I would 10/10 recommend this trip!

18-30's Travel Trips & Tour Advice

Young adult travelers are often -- though certainly not always -- on the lookout for budget trips. Many seek active, outdoorsy adventures such as hiking or biking tours, trekking and camping expeditions, backpacking trips, off-the-beaten-path locations, and a variety of learning tours, such as cooking classes in Turkey or Scuba lessons in the South Pacific. All these options and more are offered by today's tour operators. And if you want to put together a custom itinerary for yourself and your friends, just ask -- many operators will be happy to do that, too. 

Take the Planning Out

The 18-30 group is one of the busiest by far; busy with school, work, kids, and life in general. Pre-planned trips save you time by having a set itinerary so you don't have something else on your plate. You can search by the number of days you have available, where you want to go, or what type of trip you want to go on. You can guarantee that you will see plenty of wildlife and exotic locations.

Productive Itineraries

If this is one of your only vacations of the year, you’ll want to see as much as you can. These trips have multiple activities everyday to make sure you see the most of each area visited. Choose activities based on your interests. Short on time? There are trips you can do in less than a week for a quick vacation. Whether you have a week or a month, your trip will be unforgettable.

Budget Trips

These trips are catered to the young traveler's budget. Traveling alone can be very expensive, and is not as affordable if you are in or just out of college. No need to worry about booking expensive taxis or hotels for your vacation. Your trip will put together the most affordable lodging and transportation for you to get the most out of your money.

Exploring New Territories

More and more young people are venturing out of their comfort zones and going to less well known countries. The convenience of a pre-planned group trip means you don't have to worry about getting from A to B and deal with transportation. You can focus all your energy on taking breathtaking pictures as you see foreign lands.
