Rita "Where do I begin describing this trip?? This trip was absolutely amazing, from the countries that we visited right down to the Topdeck crew!!

And our bus driver drove through Scandinavia as if he knew the roads off the back of his hands. All..."

    A great trip despite being comfortably the oldest on the bus. Great people, Scott the guide and Emily the driver were fantastic; really friendly and helpful. A good mix of culture and adventure.
