Kei "First ever major tour other than your usual day trips and what a cracker it was!!! Couldn't possibly rate topdeck anymore, Alan our tour guide and Squatter our driver made the difference. Australia is an amazing place already, however having topdeck lead the way meant you enjoyed every day just that little more. By the end of the tour we went from complete strangers to a group of great friends!! T..."

    I had the best time on my Topdeck tour from Sydney to Cairns. Everything was so well organized, our tour guide was amazing and I met great people from all over the world. Especially for me as a single traveller this was the perfect fit. The tour is really good value all in all and I would highly recommend it to anyone who wants to experience the east coast of Australia and time is limited.

    The Island Suntanner - Sydney to Cairns 01/01/17 Not really quite sure where to start, I do not think we could have had a better time if we tried. I can't help but feel so lucky to have experienced this great trip made, simply made 100 times much better by the people we were with! Firstly I could not have wished for a better bunch of people to have experienced this with, we have truly made some life long friends and are already looking into meeting up with people off the trip! The top deck crew - AnthonyDi Donato and Matt McKerrow are an absolute credit to Topdeck, there was nothing these guys couldn't sort out. The extra mile they went for us was over-whelming. I couldn't have asked for a better team to look after us. Anthony really looked after my girlfriend and I when wanting to upgrade rooms, pretty much getting us our own room every night, made us feel welcome and really encouraged people to get to know each other/not letting anyone feel left out! Anthony has made this a very memorable and could not have imagined my trip with out him, i don't think we would have had a better time without him. I really can't tell Topdeck enough how lucky they are as a company to have an employee like Anthony, I would definitely recommend this trip and encourage them to use Topdeck! The two weeks were jam packed, even the longest bus journey wasn't too bad! I would 100% be looking into booking another Topdeck tour in the near future. We love you Ant!

    This trip was amazing. Anthony was totally hilarious and super knowledgeable. I learned so much about so many different aspects of Australia. He made the bus rides very entertaining. Even the super long days of just traveling were some of my favorites, just getting to see the Big Banana, the Big Mango, the Big Crab, everything! I had no idea and really had fun with this whole aspect of Australia's big things. There were so many activities for everyone to do and there was no obligation to do any single one. On the first day, I was a little hesitant about our accommodation at Surfaris, however, the accommodations got better and better. Surfaris ended up being one of my favorites just because I actually did learn to surf, even though I was beyond terrified! One of my favorite parts. Would definitely do it all over again. :)

    Island suntanner Australia! The trip was awesome, Topdeck made sure everything was well organised for the whole group. Stacy the team leader was so kind and helpful and fun! She gave us all the right tips for the trip. The accommodation was good, everything was clean and nice. The transportation was very comfortable, we got a new bus! so that was a plus. During the trip you did not have to worry about organising anything yourself. Topdeck helped you with all that, the only thing was trying to decide which extra activites you were going to do because all of them sound fun!. All in all the trip was great, the food was also good, you get to see beaches, ocean, whales, kangaroos, outback, sunsets, big city life and a lot more!

    I can honestly say I had the best time on this trip. It really squeezed in everything I would have done myself up the East Coast without the hassle of booking it all individually myself. It meant that I met a great bunch of people and did have to worry about catching the right bus or booking my accommodation right for my time on the way up. We also got great recommendations for nights outing places to eat on the days this wasn't included. Shantel our tour guide and Russell our bus driver really went out of their way to make sure everyone felt welcome and included, as well as stopping off at fun stops such as the Big Banana and the Big mango - which brightened up long bus journeys. Yes there are 'bus days' and sight days but not once did I feel bored with Shantel, she had so many facts and fun jokes to entertain us, or putting on funny Aussie videos - I cannot fault her as a guide. The tour itself was great, the accommodation was all suitable and really top quality, the accommodation was expected and I never felt that something was terrible - although the highlight was defiantly the Vibe hotel at Surfers Paradise. In terms of which days and which was the best, its so hard to choose - the 2 weeks went fast and I enjoyed every day! But the highlight had to be Whitsundays saying and Fraser Island. With the free time on Topdeck tours you had a chance to do your own thing in some places. At Byron Bay we did a beach day then the Light House walk and then to happy hour at 'The Balcony' and food at 'Miss Margarita's' - both highly recommended. There is just so many great moments to choose from, if in doubt - book this trip, you won't regret it! Every moment was beautiful and I wouldn't change it for the world. If you would like to see some photos - head to my Instagram (not trying to plug myself just incase anyone wants to see the activities and that) at http://instagram.com/laurafloraa and head to mid October 2016 time for the 2 weeks. Really unreal - cannot commend Shantel and Russell enough!
