Oh my China! Prepare yourself for a whirlwind adventure and sample the best that this country has to offer. We’re talking all the sights – The Great Wall of China (obvs), see the the Terracotta Warriors and visit Tiananmen Square but that’s just the start! Did we mention pandas? Yep, it’s happenning! Next up, prepare your bellies for a feast of treats. It wouldn’t be China without baskets of dim sum, so dig in and work that chopstick magic. Filled with whatever your little foodie heart desires, think pork, prawns or veg, whatever! China is calling, so better get those bags packed. And, GO!

Groups are between 25-60 people, typically ~30-40. Usually there will be many opportunities to split off and enjoy meals and excursions in smaller groups. This is the most economical way to travel, saving up to 40% versus booking the same itinerary yourself.

My husband and I just finished our first Topdeck tour, 2 weeks around Europe!
We loved the tour and the people we got to adventure with, our trip leader Alex, chef Morgan and driver Marian absolutely rocked!
We felt so special having them look after us and couldn't have had more fun if we tried.

I've just finished the Mega European tour with Trip Leader Nicole Smith & Coach Driver Lloyd Spencer. I was incredibly nervous about going on a tour across Europe, but the planning and organisation by our Topdeck Crew made everything stress free. All the driving and walking tours were very informative, with Nicole being able to recall information off the top of her head about the history of all the Countries and Landmarks we visited. Our driver Lloyd took a very professional approach to his work and should be praised for all the effort he puts in. Both Nicole & Lloyd are enthusiastic individuals, who are always able to give great recommendations in every Country we stopped. This trip was absolutely fantastic and will be in my memories for life. A very special thanks to these two and topdeck for such an amazing trip.

I loved my travel experience with Topdeck. Alex was such a wonderful tour leader, she had great recommendations and was super sweet and helpful. Morgan was an excellent cook and always made healthy options for us. I think the food far surpassed my expectations for this trip. Marian was also a great driver! The bus was always clean for us. I had a great time and I would do another top deck trip!

I just finished the Oceanic empires tour and absolutely loved it. This is my second top deck tour in 4 years and it was the best experience again. All the places were amazing and had the best group of people to experience new countries and food with. I would like to make a special mention to Nicole and Lloyd as they were the best and made the trip incredibly fun and memorable. Would recommend to all my friends to do a top deck tour

I booked a topdeck summer fun and sailing tour as a solo! I wasn’t sure what I’d expect as this is the first solo trip I’ve ever taken. Day one I made friends and family for a lifetime as well as a tour guide and driver who Ill never forget! Dan made the tour not just fun and memorable but one where I felt safe. Zolio our driver was like a second dad who made every drive something to look forwards to! I left this trip with new friends and family a big either and a second Dad ! Would highly recommend topdeck and dr dan and zolio 110%

Accomodations

We endeavour to select a combination of good quality hotels, hostels and guesthouses (where you actually stay will depend on your trip) that reflects the character of the local area. The accommodation is also as centrally located as possible. We strive to keep the cost as affordable as possible.

Your trip will stay in a range of accommodation. Hotels are three and four-star quality. Guesthouses are basic, yet comfortable, and hostels are clean and modern.

Please be aware that some rooms, especially those in major urban centres or older cities, may be smaller than what you are used to in other parts of the world. Standards and ratings may also be different to your home country.

Rooms are en-suite and twin where possible and will depend on what you have booked. If you are a solo traveller, you will always be sharing a room with someone of the same sex.

If you are travelling as a couple and would prefer to have a double bed, please officially request a double room with your travel agent or Topdeck Customer Service Consultant. We never presume that two people travelling together are a couple, even if you share the same surname, unless informed otherwise.

Meals Included:

Your included meals are detailed in the 'More Inclusions' section of this document.

We aim to make sure that breakfasts are included every morning in the accommodation (except on the first morning). They are usually 'continental breakfasts', which are typical in most countries. A typical breakfast may consist of cereals with milk or yoghurt, bread, croissants, cold meats, cheese and a range of spreads, with fruit juice, tea or coffee to drink. It is rare to get a hot breakfast in Asia. Though, on some occasions, there may be some hot food available as well. Please bear in mind that food varies across each country we visit in Asia.

Included evening meals are in local restaurants or in the included accommodation. In most cases, table water is provided with the meals and if you wish to purchase additional drinks you can do so at your own expense.

If you have any dietary requirements, we will make every effort to cater to your specific needs as long as you advise your travel agent or Topdeck Customer Service Consultant when you book. You can also make note of your requirements in the Topdeck app when you check in (refer below). Please be aware that although we will do everything in our power, we cannot guarantee that every restaurant we eat in will be able to cater to all of your dietary needs, particularly in Asia. Also, we cannot cater for tastes or dislikes, as most of our included evening meals feature a set menu.
