This Topdeck was so much fun, with it being the leaders last trip the chefs first trip and everyone else on the bus being 18 on a GAP year it was one to remember!Read more
Unfortunately we missed out on Nice as we were in Paris heading to Nice on Bastille day, the day of the drive through attack. Topdeck took a good step forward and moved us to Switzerland earlier and we had an extra day there and in Florence instead! They had the best facts and took us to the best places. Our leader Amanda would tell us the most important facts of the trip show us where to party and where to stay safe and let us do our own thing at night!
Would highly recommend!

Tour European Adventure
5.0 February 2017
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.Read more

Topdeck Tours was awesome, at the time back in 2005 I was traveling for 12 months, and wanted to see a huge chunk of Europe on a budget, so I found this company and it was exactly what I was looking for, the guides were very friendly, our cook was making really great meals on the side of the road, and the driver was very funny, and the accommodation was all good and I and all the other people had such and awesome time, and lots of us still keep in touch and will always remember our Topdeck experience.Read more

We want to thank Alpine Eco Trek for the most wonderful trek that we had this month in Nepal. From the first letter that Ram Kumar sent me in answer to my request for a trail in Nepal, I realized that I was immediately understood and his answers were always to the point and understanding. Ram complied a very good trail for us.Read more
We were promised and supplied with an excellent guide and wonderful porter. Both guys were sweet, sensitive, caring, interesting and entertaining. They took care of our every need in the most gently way, treating us with the utmost respect and care to make sure that we enjoyed our trek. We walked very slowly, enjoying every inch of the way, every monkey and bird and the guys always made us feel that whatever we did was fine. We made some small changes to the program to suit our walking and that too was fine with the guys.
Their English was good and their willingness to tell us about their upbringing and their lives they lead, gave us good insight into Nepal culture.
Having met many porters and guides of other trekkers on the way, we came to see and understand that we were given the best guide and porter and, thanks to them, we had the most amazing trek of the Heritage Langtang trail.
When we got back to Katmandu and we went to the office of Alpine Eco Trek for advise, all the team helped and assisted us in every possible way.
Alpine Eco Trek is an excellent company and we certainly recommend trekking with the help of this company.

Mission Eco Trek's trekking trip to Sagarmatha National Park was extremely pleasant and unforgettable adventure for me. I would give grade 10.5 out of 10 to Mission Eco Trek staff for making my time excellent at Everest.Read more
Mission Eco Trek was exceptional since the beginning. I was searching for cheap and short option for Base Camp Trek. Eco Trek was cheapest option, but in addition, also food and flights to Lukla were included. I was always receiving polite and very informative replies from Jitendra and never had to ask anything twice.
Before departing to Lukla I was invited to the office to talk about practicalities and meet my guide Dhamsingh and from the first moments, I was feeling comfortable with my guide. He was not only kind, flexible and well-aware of all the routes and practicalities in National Park, but he was doing extra and tried to make my experience special all the time. When Dhamsingh realized that I had good stamina, he adjusted the route so that we were able to see more things than it was planned originally. For instance, we visited monastery villages of Thamo and Thame and during our stay in villages on the way to EBC he showed me special places in each village during evenings. He always was keen on explaining and discussing with me specialties of Nepal.
I had feeling that I was trekking with a friend that was having fun with me. I would without doubts recommend these people as your travel guides for your trek, if you are thinking of it.
I hope to be back in Nepal in few years time and do something special again with Mission Eco Trek.

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.
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!
Founded in 2003, Trek Travel is a great option for hobby cyclists as well as die-hards. Their trips are specifically designed to cater to multiple types of traveler.
What Makes Them Stand Out?
Part of their mission is to “make adventure accessible” and they pride themselves on helping bikers and travelers see the world in comfort and fun. They cater to the individual, aiming to make everyone’s riding experience enjoyable. If you only feel like riding half a day, and spending the rest relaxing, they can accommodate!
Who Travels With Them?
Rides are open to all ages and skill levels. Trips range from leisure to recreational, active to avid, and after a long day of riding you are treated to cocktails, dinner, and comfortable accommodation.
Where Do They Operate?
They operate trips around the world from Europe, North America, Latin America, and Asia Pacific.
Why Travel With Them?
What you want to get out of the vacation, they strive to provide. Every day you can choose how far you want to ride, and what activities you’d like to partake in. Their guides have extensive experience and knowledge, both in bike maintenance and leading tours. Trek Travel provides the perfect combination of luxury and activity, as you make the trip your own.
