    5.0 - Excellent

    I only have one regret about the trip and thats that we didn't continue on the full length. The trip was led by the amazing trio of Piotr the guide, Mercie the cook and Gabriel the driver. The value for the trip was amazing, four countries in ten days. Being able to see all of those amazing places and having clearly the best guide to show us along. I was nervous going in about the food, but it turned out to be amazingly delicious. I would go on another tour led by Piotr without a hesitation.

    Fantastic trip! My only regret is that I didn't continue on the longer version heading up all the way around Norway. Many thanks to an excellent Tour Leader - Dr Dan. Also shout out to Chef Alexis and getaway driver Zoli

    I honestly had no idea what to expect when starting the Scandi Express tour. I was going with a friend who had already travelled with TopDeck, but she saved all the details...almost like a surprise! Elise was welcoming, knowledgable, kind, and hilarious. She gave you all the information you needed to know, but didn't try to boss you around. She was respectful and all she asked in return was that you respect her; an easy task! Elise, thank you for being oh so kind and caring. I'm planning two more TopDeck tours and if my leaders are anything like you I know I'll be in safe hands.

    Even though this was a short 10 day trip, I had an amazing time on tour! Our crew was amazing from Bec our tour leader who knew just about everything, to our talented cook Holly and the wicked driving skills of Zoli. It was a great intro to Scandinavia and I hope to go back on day to see more.

    First and last Top Deck tour for me I'm afraid, and it all boils down to the worst tour guide I have come across. Our tour guide Dan was less than helpful and continued to waste our time repeatedly. He was rude to passengers and continued to provided incorrect information about locations and sightseeing at every point. Giving us all an out of date map and telling us where the information stand is when we arrive in a city, is NOT being a Tour Guide (turns out the map is old and the information stand is no longer there!!) Dropping us off at a Museum in Olso, only for us to find that its closed! Quoting incorrect costs of Museums, internet, shower, washing costs at EVERY campsite. Meeting us out the front of the Palace in Stockholm and telling us this is where the changing of the guards happens and goes for around 45min. What we saw only went for about 5min- he stood and watched with us. Later speaking to another tourist, we were in the wrong location! When asking where to go on our free night in Stockholm, he responds with "oh anywhere around is fine"....ah there are 17 dam islands, a little direction would be nice. He had no personal experiences to share on what to do and where to go. At no stage did he ask any of us how our day was or what we got up to. I decided to ask him how his free day was and all I got was a reply of "yeah good" These are only a few examples- there were many many more. We continually felt like we were actually getting in his way. People aren't always going to get along but as a tour guide you should never be able to tell that you dislike someone, people are paying good money for your service and Dan seemed to forget that. On the plus side our cook Pinky was great, always really nice food and I never went hungry. No complaints about Pauly the driver either. Sadly Dan's actions or in-actions over-shadowed my whole experience. I have done 2 Contiki's a Kumuka & an Intrepid and I will definately go back to one of these companies for my trip next year.
