    It was a great trip! Bonny was super helpful with everything and made the experience amazing. He is very knowagable in his facts about the many cities we visited. He was always willing to set up group outings outside of the tour for our freee night in the cities.

    I had the best time on Topdeck's European Odyssey in early 2017. It was three weeks of absolute joy and was a great way to see different parts of Europe while travelling solo. The inclusions and optional activities provided in the trip were really good, with something to appeal to everyone. Highlights include a trip to a Tuscan winery, dinner at a beer hall in Berlin and all of the walking tours at our destinations. The crew that took us around Europe were amazing. Tour leader Jacinthe was really passionate about her job and really made the experience a breeze for a lot of people on the trip. She was really approachable and willing to answer any question or provide assistance if possible. She had good knowledge of the places we went and I really enjoyed the tours and activities she ran. Driver Lucasz was also great and got us around Europe and back safely! The bus itself was kept clean, comfortable, had wifi and charging ports for phones. Driving days could be long but Jac threw on a few movies and activities to keep us entertained, and we also had plenty of breaks to stretch our legs. One of the big things that is out of your control when you book a trip like this is accommodation. Topdeck makes it very clear from the start that hotels are three star by European standards, and for me the rooms were fine. A few people grumbled under their breath at times but the hotels were always clean, felt safe and many were located centrally in a city but if not they were very close to public transportation (or a reasonably priced uber ride). I didn't travel all the way to europe to just chill in a room, I just needed one for sleep, showering and to store possessions and the rooms provided this perfectly. Overall the trip was excellent and was the best experience of my life! I have even booked another Topdeck trip for my next holiday!

    As a Travel Agent - I was really looking forward to experiencing a product that I have sold quite a bit of. I went on this trip for my 30th birthday - and it was my first time to Europe. I wanted to do it big and with TopDeck it totally blew my expectations out of the water. The experiences that I obtained are some that wont be forgotten and the places that I got to explore are life changing. I would strongly encourage anyone in the Topdeck market to give them a go - you will never be disappointed with the experiences you obtain! My tour leader Jacinthe Mercier-Paquin should be highly commended here. Whilst the trip was phenomenal, it was made even more so by having her as my leader. This is highly evident to the point where if I have sold a Topdeck trip to my clients after returning - I have actually contacted her to see if she might be the tour leader on this trips, so I can rave to them about how much more awesome the trip is going to be! Jas was not only informative & educational - but she was an awesome ball of fun! She quickly became our "den-mother" making sure we did everything when it had to be done and no one got left behind! Whilst the European Odyssey trip was totally amazing - it was her that took it to another level! I only wish she could be my tour leader on all the trips I am looking at taking in the future!!!

    Our Topdeck tour was incredible! Definitely the best way to travel around Europe, and absolutely hassle-free which meant we could enjoy our holiday without having to worry about a thing! The activities and walking tours were fantastic, and the meals and accommodation were great value. We made lifelong friends and some incredible memories.

    Amazingly mind blowing, Europe has alway been a bucket list destination for me. My experience was outstanding, this topped off my my phenomenal tour guide Jacinthe Mercier - Paquin the most warm hearted, welcoming individual I have ever meet. Her dedication to her role is outstanding. The wealth of knowledge, dedication to detail, making you feel you where apart of history every time you visited a new place.. her raw passion for the tourism industry is evident by the joy that is seen when telling you about your next destination.

    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!
