    My guide was Jas. My tour with topdeck was the first time out of my home country (Australia) !! I can honestly say that every damn day with that girl was amazing. We were one big family and she was like my big sister showing me all the wonders of Europe. I have so much love for Jas ! 100% wouldn't have wanted anyone else to show my group around and I give her 5 stars for SURE. Thanks topdeck and Jas for giving me the experience of a life time that I wouldn't change for anything

    In September 2016 I did the 20 day European get away which I really enjoyed. I had a good tour guide, good driver and met some really nice people. I also thought I got a good value for money so I'd definitely recommend Topdeck.

    Jemma was such a legend! She made the tour so much fun, helped me out when I missed the bus (my bad), and got around everyone on tour so much! She was knowledgeable about the places we went and shared heaps of interesting facts - I would definitely want Jemma as a tour leader again!

    Our Topdeck tour was soooo much fun!! We had a bunch of great people and a really awesome tour guide who knew all the ins and outs. I had never been on a trip before but it was definitely what I had expected and more. Jemma was our tour guide. What I loved about Jemma was she made the trip fun for us. She was really able to do her job well when she had to (complete walking tours, explain lots of cool info about buildings and places etc) but then was also able to relax and have fun with us (I was hoping we wouldn’t get a really uptight tour guide, and we didn’t so I was happy!!). The accommodation was overall good, Wombat backpackers I thought we’re pretty good and accommodated for us well. Additional to the great tour guide we had, we also had a super skilled bus driver who was also really fun and laid back so that made the trip enjoyable too! Topdeck lunches or dinners were amazing! I loved my Topdeck tour and would definitely do it again and recommend it and Jemma and Victor as tour guide and bus driver.
