    Stien was awesome. Very knowledgeable about all the places we were going and super organised so even if there was an issue (like getting stuck in snow outside of Oxford) she still made things fun and relaxed. Definitely more than just a tour leader :-D

    My first time on a topdeck tour and Stein's knowledge and attitude towards the whole thing was just amazing. Plenty of mini tours around everywhere we went with a great deal of added functions and events she personally went out of her way to provide for the group. The driver was fantastic and they both spent time to get to know everyone on their tour, be it by nights out on the town or just casual conversations on the bus. Thanks for the best Britain and Ireland experience we could've asked for. Yours truly, 'The Sailors'

    Jemma was an approachable, knowledgeable and enthusiastic tour guide. She took us on a tour around the U.K. and Ireland around Christmas time and all her extra touches really made the tour! From giving us the full, authentic U.K. Experience ( Playing "The Inbetweeners" and "Gavin and Stacey" for us in long bus rides) and the full Christmas Experience (Playing movies like "Love Actually") and teaching us all about Christmas Jumpers and their popularity in the U.K., it was more than a tour... it was a full-blown experience!

Our tour guide Nuala was exceptional in every way, along with our driver Noel. This trip was great, good accommodations, fantastic cities, cultural and food experiences and more. Couldnt really be happier.

    Piotr was an excellent trip leader! He had great knowledge of all the places we travelled to and extra knowledge of other places not included. He always went out of the way to help. He was a fun and friendly person to be around and I thoroughly enjoyed getting to know him and hanging out with him. I would travel on another trip with Piotr as my tour guide without hesitation!
