I did the 24 day Winter Spirit around Europe! I would definitely recommend booking a Topdeck tour! It was the best experience ever. Doing my second Topdeck in July around New Zealand!

Did Uluru discovery in Australia and Grand Kiwi in NZ back in November and it was the most amazing experience ever! Awesome guide and driver. Well organized and took great care of us!
Only one bad hostel accommodation wise, but other than that it was amazing.
It was so nice not having to worry about accommodations, transportation, and most meals when we got there! On the days it wasn’t included, the guide/driver would tell us what’s in the area!
For sure will be doing another topdeck tour in the future!

My partner and I just completed the 20 day Discover Winter tour and it was absolutely outstanding! What really made the trip though was the Trip Leader, Alex, and the driver, Deyan. They were both extremely knowledgeable people and explained everything we needed to know to enjoy every place we went to. I highly recommend this tour and hope that everybody else has the opportunity to meet Alex and Deyan.

Brilliant tour, couldn’t have asked for more!
We have just completed a week tour and feel compelled to write to you. Firstly your company operations are excellent - from the first enquiry to the final taking of the tour all communication was clear, on time and followed through. All aspects of our tour were fantastic. We were fortunate to have every arrangement happen without incident. However and most importantly we had the services of Felix - our guide our organizer our helper and our friend. Felix is outstanding and we want to give this feedback to you direct. He is well organized, very approachable, sensitive our needs, has an excellent rapport with the hosts and the locals and made our tour informative, social and fun. He is very proud of Cubaoutings and carries out his duties with perfection and sincerity. He has an excellent knowledge of the history of Cuba and its heritage and really engaged us with the culture. Before the trip I didn't really know what to expect from the casas, but staying in them was a fantastic way to get to know the Cuban people. Everywhere we stayed was charming and the owners were so friendly and hospitable. For me, the highlights included snorkelling in the Caribbean, exploring the beautiful wildlife around Trinidad, and going to a nightclub in a cave! Food was so much better than I was expecting! So much fresh fish, vegetables and fruit, not forgetting the wonderful pork! The feast we had at the Organic Farm in Vinales was one of the best meals I've ever had! We leave Cuba with a greater understanding of its history, an appreciation for its music and dance culture but most of all a respect and admiration for its people who live a suppressed and totally different lifestyle to any we have experienced and still smile, are friendly and helpful and accepting of their lot. We loved the engagement with local people and the freedom to explore each place. Thank you to you and your excellent company for providing us with the opportunity to visit this beautiful country and leave it safely and completely humbled.

Exceptional service from beginning to end! I'm from L.A. and for the longest time, have always dreamt about traveling to Cuba.

However, when originally researching how to get there from the U.S. (despite the progress between the two countries), I was met with many conflicting and confusing "resources" that did not provide any solutions. But that all changed when I found Cuba Travel Services.

Last month, I was finally able to travel to Cuba and experience it before the floodgates open up. It was the most spectacular trip thus far (Coincidently, I was even there for the U.S. Embassy reopening!)

Andrea Calderon from CTS, provided and setup everything I'd need to go. This included informative and up-to-date knowledge of travel to Cuba (she answered all my 28628100 questions), necessary documents, my visa, and the round trip chartered flight from Miami to La Habana, Holguin to Miami (they have multiple departing locations in Cuba.)

Cuba Travel Services is awesome and it could not have been a more seamless process.

Gracias por todo!

      About Topdeck

      Founded in 1973, Topdeck has been providing fun, adventurous trips around the world for 18-39 for over 40 years.

      What Makes Topdeck Travel Stand Out?

      Topdeck tour focuses on providing friendly and authentic guided group tours where like-minded 18-39 year old travelers can have amazing group experiences. There are several trip types to choose from, from camping, to immersive, to multi destination, to sailing.

      Who Will Enjoy Traveling with Topdeck?

      Sociable, adventurous, budget conscious 18-39 year olds are the kinds of traveler who will gravitate to Topdeck. Though they offer a few different distinct travel styles, there is definitely a sense of an ongoing party, with travel as the conduit and underlying shared interest.

      If the idea of being around a group of similarly aged people - many of whom may be exploring internationally for the first or second time - being spontaneous, and meeting locals (often in the environment of bars or clubs) is unappealing, then Topdeck may not be your cup of tea.

      Introverted travelers, or those for whom an extensively planned itinerary including many museums and historical sites is ideal, may want to hunt around before choosing a Topdeck tour.

      That is not to dissuade the more observational traveler - who may very well find a group they gel with perfectly on a Topdeck tour. Only to caution that you will be surrounded by several extroverted personalities.

      The bottom line is if you are game for anything, are traveling on a budget, and don’t mind fairly basic but comfortable accommodations and inexpensive meals - sometimes on the go - then you will enjoy the Topdeck tour experience.

      Top Destinations

      Topdeck has tours throughout the world, in Europe, Australia & New Zealand, North America, the Middle East, Africa, and Asia.

      Topdeck Travel Style

      The Topdeck travel style is tied quite specifically to their audience. These tours are great for youthful and energetic 18-39 year olds looking for a good time and to make new friends.

      In the interest of keeping their tours affordable, travelers with Topdeck will need to make a few allowances. For example, hostels and hotels may be situated quite far away from the city centers. You can also expect some long travel days. The more of a good sense of humor and adventure you have, the more you’ll enjoy the experience.

      Why Choose a Tour With Topdeck

      Feeling the urge to connect with travelers in your age group, have fun, and make lasting friendships? Topdeck has over 40 years of experience in adventure travel, which has helped them create epic low cost trips for 18-30 somethings.

      These tours are certainly not for those who prefer to take things slow. You will be running around, moving between a lot of places - which in some cases means very long bus rides - going out a lot, meeting new people, and staying active throughout your tour.

      If your ideal travel experience is more methodical and planned out in nature, Topdeck may not be for you.

      But if you are an adventurous and social travelers eager to absorb a new culture and make new friends, then hop on board!
