- SsarahWritten on October 24, 20174.5 - ExcellentPIOTR WAS THE BEST TOUR LEADER I HAD ON MY EUROPEAN SUMMER TRIP! Piotr was so knowledgeable and passionate when we went to a new town or country and gave us all something to really appreciate other than getting drunk! He was incredibly funny and caring for each of us as individuals - a tour leader turned friend! Piotr deserves all the recognition a tour leader could receive.Show detailed ratings

He forms genuine bonds with people and creates an environment that you can truely relax and enjoy a trip of a life in. Our driver BoBo was first class and genuinely great person, and awesome driver as well. These two were an amazing team. We count ourselves lucky to have joined the tour with Johnny and Bobo!Show detailed ratings

All the add-ons he organised were very fun and ran smoothly. He was always willing to have a good time with us. I feel like I've gained a friend for life, thanks Ant! EmilyShow detailed ratings

- BrendanWritten on August 20, 20155.0 - ExcellentThis trip was amazing, I had previously done a Grand European in 2014 and joined this tour after doing a Adriatic Sunsets, and although every trip was extremely enjoyable, Monika was the most knowledgeable leader I have come across, and although this trip had much more difficulties arise than my other ones, Monika was amazing at dealing with issues that arose and was always able to make sure everyone was on time and having fun. It is true that without a tour leader that is well organized and able to encourage unity amongst the group, the trip wouldn't be as enjoyable. Monika was able to turn the bus into a family and helped friendships that I hope will remain to flourish.Show detailed ratings
- SDSheridanWritten on August 18, 20155.0 - ExcellentSuch an amazing tour! We got to see so much in a short space of time, and the experience was only made more amazing by our incredible tour guide Monika. She went above and beyond what her job requires of her... Organising extra activities for the group, booking dinners and having incredible knowledge of every place we visited. Thanks Topdeck and Monika.Show detailed ratings
- CourtneyWritten on June 5, 20154.5 - ExcellentYou know when you meet somebody new and you can't believe you didn't know them before? That's Elise. She is so warm and engaging, she makes you feel like a friend within a minute of meeting her. I usually hate guided tours at attractions...I find them boring and because of my background, usually already know a lot of the history. However, Elise makes the history come alive and you will be laughing so much, you can't be bored. Her storytelling skills are AMAZING! You will have heaps of good times with Elise!Show detailed ratings
