    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.

    I was really nervous about doing the whole topdeck tour thing. Jemma made our whole experience so much better and always made sure we were having the most fun and seeing the best places. She is such an amazing tour guide always smiling even if she’s super stressed. Jemma’s personality is full of positivity and good vibes, something every tour guide needs in my opinion.

    Judes (Jody) was the best, funnest, most full-of-life guide. So upbeat, funny! (Such a quirky sense of humour and quick wit), and positive. Jody knew so much information about each country and the history of the people there. She was amazing. How amazing to be so full of info and have so much enthusiasm - she was super human:-) Though I wasn't into the partying aspect of a group tour (I wanted to quietly see Europe), the top deck tour was great, as it was all organised for me (I just got taken from place to place), the drivers were lovely, Jody was super fun, the group was great - lovely people - so I was able to see beautiful Europe - on my own if I wanted to go off during the day in each place - but with the comfort of a nice, safe group of people around me, and without having to think about where to stay, or any logistics. Was a very well organised trip, comfortable bus, clean and good quality backpacker/campground cabin/couple of hotels/chateau accommodation. Lovely experience☺️

    Thank you for the most incredible 20 days. I couldn't have asked for a better European travel experience and wouldn't change a single moment of it. Absolutely the best group of people who I'll forever be friends with :) Big thanks to Millie the best trip leader, she was a freaking legend and did such a good job of being our tour leader.

Her general knowledge and epic history about every place was excellent, as well as her useful tips and tricks for every country made it even more amazing. Sunny our bus driver was a gentleman , he went above and beyond for all of us. Loved his friendly, happy nature. This tour was a dream come true, worth every penny and more. Loved every country, wish we could have stayed in Austria an extra day. Very well run trip, with great accomadation. Such a memerable trip that started off with strangers and ended with life long friendships world wide. Would just like to mention that it was hard adding new people more than half way through the trip, it made it awkward. Thanks so much sunny and daisy❤️
