- PDPeterWritten on January 31, 20184.0 - GoodVincenzo (Vinny!) was a great trip leader. He made the whole experience what it was. The tour was amazing and went to so many places I have always wanted to go. Vinny's knowledge was excellent. I think of Vinny more as a friend and hope to see him again in the future. Very fond memories.Show detailed ratings
- BBelindaWritten on January 3, 20184.0 - GoodI did the 30 day Eastern Adventure with Topdeck (in 2016) and it was amazing! Our guide and driver were very knowledgeable from history to places to eat and things to see on our free days, they were also very flexible when people wanted to do something a little bit different/on their own and in general just great fun to be around. The itinerary itself was great, although we had some small changes (due to security reasons and we were informed prior to the trip commencing) post booking I quickly forgot about what we "missed out" on and thoroughly enjoyed every minute of my trip and the extra time we had elsewhere instead. With the exception of maybe 1 or 2 places the accommodation was great (hotels, hostels & cabins) with most of the hostels being more like a hotel anyway having private bathrooms and sometimes only 3 or 4 in a room. The group ranged in ages from 18/19 - late 30's which was great as a 30 year old. One thing that really stood out for me with Topdeck is their focus on TRAVELLING and experiencing the culture of where you are each day, of course there was plenty of partying too but unlike other tour companies partying is not the top priority on Topdeck which is great and means there is no pressure when you want to have a "quiet" night and make the most out of each city you are in. The highlights of this particular trip for me were, Bosnia, Serbia, Plitvice Lakes & Auschwitz-Birkenau concentration camp.Show detailed ratings
- EBEmmaWritten on October 24, 20174.0 - GoodTrip was beyond what I had expected but not for the typical reasons that come to mind. While the accomodation, trip organisation etc were what you’d expect-it was the personal stories and understanding of European history by the trip leader that made the tour enriching and unique. I got more out of the tour hearing the tour leaders (and family) personal experiences from living in Europe (WWII and Yokoslavian war) than some Aussie tour leader reading from what they learnt on the internet. Would easily rate the tour experience 10/10.Show detailed ratings

- AAlexandraWritten on December 12, 20164.0 - GoodTravelling for 29 days through east teen Europe with Ruta was such an amazing experience. Could not have asked for a better/more knowledgable and caring tour guide.Show detailed ratings
- NONatashaWritten on December 12, 20164.0 - GoodRuta was my top deck leader this year on a 21 day tour around Europe. Ruta made the trip so much more enjoyable and was always bubbly and cheerful. She was so informative and I learned so much about the history of the countries we visited. She always went the extra mile to make sure everyone was enjoying themselves and was looked after. I am very thankful that I had Ruta as my leader.Show detailed ratings
- MTMeaganWritten on December 28, 20154.5 - ExcellentI was so glad I chose Topdeck for my second tour in Europe. It was really good value for money with the food, accommodation and included extras, especially compared to Contiki. The tour was run really well, and I loved my guide and driver, and I got the perfect balance of time with the group and free time, and we got all the information we needed in every place we went. Would definitely do Topdeck again.Show detailed ratingsTopdeck commented on this reviewThanks Meagan, fantastic to hear everything ran smoothly on your Eastern Adventure trip, we welcome you back anytime. ~ Topdeck.
- AllieWritten on August 17, 20155.0 - ExcellentMonika created an amazing vibe for our tour. It didn't matter if you had been on tour from the tart, or joined part of the way through, you were very welcomed. Her information on every town and country throughout our tour was incredible. She was willing to answer any random question that we may have. Her suggestions on what to do in each town and more importantly where to eat, was always spot on. No one who took her suggestion of Happy bar and grill in Sofia was disappointed. Most of us would say it was one of the best (and cheapest) meals we ate. She willing gave up her extra time to hang out or join in with another activity and she made the whole tour the best we could have had. She kept calm when things didn't go quite as planned and made it into just another adventure. I thank her immensely for everything she did and can't recommend her highly enough as a guide! This tour is incredible and I say sign up and DO IT!Show detailed ratings
- MatthewWritten on August 6, 20155.0 - ExcellentI had the time of my life! I spent 30 days immersed in new and exotic Eastern European locations, with a very friendly and enthusiastic group of people, on a surprisingly comfortable bus in the capable hands of our knowledgeable friend Jude, and with a tour leader who was so entertaining that even a 2 hour border crossing on the coach was kinda fun! Elise was simply a brilliant tour leader. She ensured we all felt we were in capable hands, and she was always informative and helpful, but more than that, she was just there for us all! It was always going to be an amazing trip. Elise made it twice as fun!Show detailed ratings
- MelWritten on June 18, 20155.0 - ExcellentMy Eastern Europe trip wouldn't have been nearly as amazing without Elise. I joined the Mega European trip halfway through and Elise made me feel so welcome. She always makes the dreaded long bus days bearable and she was so passionate about every city we visited. With all of the inside jokes and amazing memories, it'll be a trip I'll never forget, Elise is 10/10!Show detailed ratings
