- SSarahWritten on July 28, 20184.5 - ExcellentRuta was the most incredible tour guide! She was incredibly knowledgeable and so thoughtful! She wasn’t only a tour guide, but an amazing friend to all on the trip. As for the trip, it was the adventure of a life time. Some of the accommodation wasn’t up to an appropriate standard, but most was reasonable. I was fed well also. I would recommend this trip to anyone. Thank you TopDeck!Show detailed ratings

- AlexaWritten on September 28, 20154.5 - ExcellentThis tour was incredible! Our guide and driver were so friendly, helpful and caring. The breakfasts were ok but all the other food was delicious ! I suggest you bring a external power source because having one that charges 2-4 times helps you out when you only have one charging port in most hostels/hotels. We had a magnificent time sailing and made several friends along the way. Most of The accommodations were good but we had the unfortunate event of bed bugs at 2 of them. To be on the safe side bring a lavender spray or something to keep them away. I would totally recommend this tour but I suggest you do the mega European because nobody wants to leave friends halfway through the trip. Another tip is to pack light and only a few things you will actually wear. I had a backpack with about 1/2 of which I didn't use. Loved this tour and all of my new Aussie and kiwi friends ! Deni (from Bulgaria) was the best tour leader and knew so much about everything ! Let's not forget about Peter our saviour, manoeuvrering the bus around the crazy streets of Italy and Greece ! Incredible driving skills Peter !Show detailed ratingsTopdeck commented on this reviewLove the photos! Glad you enjoyed your Topdeck trip you certainly got a lot in by the looks of it.

- GSGeorgiaWritten on September 10, 20155.0 - ExcellentAnt was the best trip leader we could wish for and that we had. He was just an all rounder! Fabulous personality made everyone feel welcome and involved, life of the party, and sometimes your mum. He was overly organised making us feel safe and confident in where we were going and enjoying where were. Full of information and the right amount of history. He deserves this award cause he is amazing at his job!!Show detailed ratings
- NicoleWritten on August 17, 20155.0 - ExcellentMy top deck tour was easily the most fun and exciting trip of my life, and this experience was greatly enhanced by our trip leader Monika who continuously went above and beyond her duty to ensure that all traveller were having the best possible trip. Her excess of knowledge about all the places we visited was extraordinary and allowed her to converse with travelers more conversationally than other guides who read facts out of a book. Monika's kind and friendly personality made it easy for her to become more than our guide, but also a friend with whom we greatly enjoyed sharing our trip with. I cannot thank Monika enough for what a wonderful job she does and would highly recommend her :)Show detailed ratings
