    I went on a European Odyssey tour in 2015, with Jody Douglass as my tour leader. The trip was fantastic, covering the major highlights of Europe for people who have never been there before. Jody (Judes ) was everything you would want in a leader; funny, charismatic and extremely knowledgeable, with the ability to remember so many amazing facts about so many countries. She made the trip so enjoyable and memorable!

    Incredible trip. Once in a lifetime experience. Our trip leader, Carlos Alvarez, was EXCELLENT. He was very knowledgeable, passionate, professional, kind, hardworking. He went above and beyond what was expected of him. Our driver, Victor Danila, was very skillful, professional, full of energy, positive, and always happy. Excellent experience. Will definitely recommend this tour to family and friends.

    This was a trip of a life time, it changed my life! I met some cool people and made some good friendships. The tour leader and bus driver made such an impact on everyone, when it came to say goodbyes it was an emotional one. I recommend this trip to anyone who wants to travel! Amazing! Topdeck took care of everything which means you don't have to worry about anything except what you are gonna do with your spare time ☺️

    The coach was great and the driver was amazing and had pretty impressing driving skills! The accomodation varied from horrible to good. My favourite accom was in Austria, and my least favourites were Amsterdam and Florence, although I admit I am a princess when it comes to accomodation. The tour was good because you pretty much knock out all the touristy things in one hit. My top tips would be to not do the guided tour in the Vatican, and just go and see the Sistine Chapel and St Peter's Basilica on your own, only do the included bike tour in Amsterdam if your confident riding a bike in a busy city and if you have particular things you know you want to do in a city - do your research! Some places require you to book tickets at least 2 months in advance, and if travelling during peak season, it may be worth getting tickets that allow you to jump the queue to get the most out of your days!

    Great way to see the world with an experience trip leader and likeminded fellow passengers. They give you more free times more meals and more inclusions such as the gondola ride in Venice. Great value for money. You make life long friends and memoirs to go along with it.

    Elise made my experience of traveling Europe for the first time unforgettable! Her love for all things Europe - food, history, language - and travel made it a beyond enjoyable experience and her professionalism and organisational skills ensured the whole trip went smoothly. Thank you Elise and Topdeck for the time of my life!

    I can't speak highly enough about Elise. Not only was she a knowledge, professional guide but also the best person you're likely to ever meet. I feel so lucky to have had Elise as our tour guide. She made our experience so enjoyable. Elise's enthusiasm for travel is infectious and her excitement makes you excited. Thanks, Elise, for an excellent trip that we won't ever forget!
