Jessica Thompson Guide at Topdeck

I am half Australian and half Swiss (grew up in Aus). I have been living in Europe for over five years now and loving every moment of it. When I first came over to Europe I did my very own Topdeck Tour and could not have loved it more. To me, being a Trip Leader was the ultimate dream job. So luckily enough for me, I'm now doing my dream job. I do it so I can meet amazing people, and I have met more amazing people than I ever could have possibly imagined

Jessica's Favourite Tour

Winter Spirit

Unforgettable Tour Memory

Being brought surprise pizza late in the evening, pure happiness. Banter boys - that's all I need to say about that. Spending New Year's Eve celebrating with the best of friends in Salzburg. Swimming in Lake Bled, Slovenia on the sunniest of days with my grand European family. Telling my first group ever that they were my first on our final canal cruise dinner was the most terrifying yet exciting things I did, I couldn't have felt luckier to have been with such amazing people.

Best Travel Tip

Always keep an open mind whilst travelling - open to new experiences, new food, new people, new adventures. This way you'll get the most out of your travels. Also, keep a packet of tissues on you in case you get stuck in a toilet with no paper. Seriously. It helps.
