    I did the Scenic Scandi trip in May/Early June 2018 and I absolutely loved it! The tour was organised and ran superbly. I’ve been with Topdeck before and thought they went above and beyond in regards to service. As this tour goes through Norway which is notoriously expensive they have a chef who comes on tour with you and prepares majority of your meals. For 15 days almost every meal is prepared for you and the meals are incredible. The destinations through Norway were extremely scenic and something beautiful to look at every day. This tour is mostly spent travelling through the country, so do be prepared for this, however they aren’t wasted days, as there are many photo stops and beautiful sights to see. Finland was also quite scenic in a different way and Estonia was beautiful with its medieval charm! Some of the highlights of the tour for me were visiting Troll’s Pass, the Geiranger Fjord, Nordkapp and Tallinn. We weren’t able to visit the glacier unfortunately as it wasn’t open for the season yet (usually opens early June, but obviously is weather dependent and therefore out of Topdeck’s control). The tour stays mostly in cabins, which are quite pleasant and on average four beds to a cabin! The facilities are basic but enjoyable and perfect when travelling on a budget. Do be aware that accomodation in Scandinavia doesn’t often provide linen, therefore you should bring a cheap light sleeping bag so that you aren’t sleeping on mattresses. There were a couple hostel stays, and also some hotels stays which were all lovely. My chef Kass was amazing and ensured everyone in the group was catered for and that no one went hungry! The meals varied every day, so it was something new on offer. The group assisted with helping assemble her cook tent in the campsites we visited, and de-assemble as well as basic cleaning up. We were all happy to do so, as we understood it was a necessary part and well worth it for the food we got! My tour leader Victoria was incredible and knowledgeable about the places we went to and provides lots of insider tips and historical knowledge. It was a delight to have her as my tour guide. My bus driver Victor was also incredible and ensured we were safe on the bus, and also cleaned the coach daily to ensure we had a pleasant journey. Overall this tour was the best value for money I’ve done with Topdeck, if I was to do this on my own I would have spent double the price and would have missed half the sights! Would definitely recommend.

    Went on this tour in July/August 2014! Our tour guide Sabrina and chef Liz were fantastic! Dietary requirements were always catered for and Sabrina made sure to keep us entertained and busy on long bus days which there were quite few off. They generelly created a really comfortable atmosphere! Accomodations were always great, however most showers needed to be paid for with coins (so make sure to have spare change with you). The tour focuses on Norway, where we got so see amazing places, however I would have preferred if more time would have been scheduled for Finland, other than Santa's Village and one full day in Helsinki. Would definitely keep this in mind when thinking about booking this tour and maybe take the ferry back to Helsinki after finishing in Tallinn. Overall a great tour! Would highly recommended!

    I went on the Scenic Scandi tour (a leg of the Red Star) in June. It was a great way to see Norway and Finland, as well as meeting a great group of people. The tour took us to the top of the world (well the northern most point of Norway) and even though we didn't see the midnight sun due to the weather, we still had a brilliant time! We also went to Hell, met Santa and saw some great scenery and heard about some fantastic history at the same time.

    I haven't travelled yet but from what I've seen so far I'm extremely happy I have chosen to travel with TourRadar. From my very first enquiry I was impressed. I had been researching a number of companies to find the right tour for us but all the others took their time in replying and I had to ask a number of times for information. The team at TourRadar were always prompt with answering me and very forthcoming with information. The website was easy to use and I was very impressed that it had so much information. What information I couldn't find on the website was quickly given to me once I asked. Would I refer TourRadar to my friends.....I already have! Now I can't wait to travel
