    Itinerary, places we visit in such a short time was just awesome. Terence is simply an awesome tour guide, his way of explaining the history of the places definitely makes things more interesting and enjoyable.

    Stein is amazing, our whole tour group is sure that we want to book another tour with Stein because we couldn't imagine anyone better. She has such a passion and in-depth knowledge of European history and customs and showed us some really cool places that were a bit off the beaten track. Stein has a great energy, that kept the group spirit high even when we were stuck in some lengthy traffic jams. I would 100% recommend booking a trip with Stein.

    Great trip! From the transport to the food, accommodation and our amazing guide Jess, it was a fantastic 11 days to see the hot spots of Europe. 10/10 would do again.

    This was the best tour ever! Went to every place on my bucket list, made friends and memories I’ll keep for life. Bianca was the best tour guide, really knowledgeable and helpful and maverick was the best driver, who always got us there on time or early! Couldn’t have asked for a better experience, would highly recommend!

    I went on my first topdeck trip on 9th March 2017 and I must say it was the best decision I made. It was also my first time going solo and it was great, met so many people from day 1 and had a blast throughout the whole trip. I enjoyed every place I went to, just wish i could stay longer in each destination for example in Venice, it would have been great to stay one more night as I wanted to see much more. I have recommended this trip to my friends, especially those who are afraid of going alone. All the meals were ok, breakfast was a bit plain and basic, which could be improved but I did the majority of the extra activities and don't regret doing any of them. Would I go on another Topdeck trip? Yes of course! I am now looking forward to meeting my friends from the Topdeck tour next year in a new destination :) Also, i have to say that Melisa Harvey was the best tour leader I could ever ask for. She did an amazing job and I so happy she was on my tour. She's a star!!! And of course, our coach driver Csaba Csabesz was funny, entertaining and also a very safe and thoughtful driver. His another great addition to the Topdeck team. Thank you Topdeck for the amazing trip! Please add some South America trips also Cuba would be an amazing one! #noregrets #topdeck #winterexpress2017 ❤️❤️❤️

    Topdeck is firstly such a great way to see Europe. Tour is planned so that you see everything you need to see, with enough free time that you can create your own fun. It's worth every penny. A tour though, I think, is only as great as its leader and Jess was as fantastic as they come. As we crossed the border into each new country she was already teaching us something new about its history, and with such enthusiasm and in such a relatable way that it made it easy to listen to and take it all in. It added an extra dimension to every city, being able to walk around a foreign place and recognise historic landmarks and meanings behind them whilst you're there is something special. Seeing the passion in Jess' eyes and hearing it in her voice about what she was doing, made tour every bit more exciting. You could tell she wanted everyone to feel comfortable and really make their most of their time on tour, she would often buy everyone on the bus a little keepsake from each city which was unbelievably generous. She was patient, she was kind, and she was HILARIOUS and I believe the experience was what it was due to Jess as well as Jani. Everyone on our Winter Express tour really lucked out having them on board, and I can't thank them enough for all the wisdom, fun, and laughs they shared - as well as not kicking us off the bus!!!
