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%
