Leonie "It was a FANTASTIC trip and I can only recommend it! Our tour guide Jenny gave us insider tips and told us what to do in which city, where to go for a fancy bar, where to queue up to enter the museum fast, how to experience the local culture etc. Not only her, also the driver was great - driving us around Paris, Barcelona. Both did a great job. The food and the hotels we stayed at were very nice. ..."

    Calling it a Tapas Tour is kind of misleading. It’s actually just one week of a larger Discover Europe tour. I wasn’t aware of that when I booked. Also there is no particular focus on food which is what you would expect with a tour called “tapas tour”. The... Read more

    Jess was a wonderful tour guide! I loved how she had suggestions for each city we stopped in. She was super laid back but professional at the same time. I was upset I was only on the tour for a week, I wish I could have stayed on longer.

    I completed the Tapas trail in May with Jacob and this was my second Topdeck tour. I had the most incredible trip and ao much of it was down to Jacob's time and energy he put in every day making sure we got the most out of every new place we discovered!
