    So I had gone on the Winter - UK and Ireland tour and I have to say this was by far the most amazing experience I had. They really show you the beauty and history for the places you see and actually gave you a lot of your own time to explore with tips and guidance to ensure you had the best experience. I had been previously travelling, and had just done a tour with another company, but they had nothing on Topdeck. It is a well organised and structured company. Gemma was our trip leader and to be honest I couldn't have felt more welcomed than how she made us feel. She brought a lot of us together on our bus rides showing us some great flicks relating to the places we were visiting as well as some great British comedies! She came out with us, always making sure we were having the best time we could be. We also had an amazing bus driver, which made our rides even more exciting, especially when they went above and beyond, and decked our bus out for Christmas making us feel that Christmas spirit. Accommodation was a lot better than I had expected. Some were very nice that I would have actually picked those if I had of done solo travel. Wish I could relive this tour a hundred times over!

    Had a great time on the Britain + Ireland trip with Ash as the trip leader. Compared to my last trip with Topdeck in Europe, this trip was a little more intimate and a little less fast-paced which I really enjoyed. Although we experienced the wet UK weather, I had a blast spending time in each of the cities and towns we stopped in. Ash was a fantastic guide, absolutely hilarious and so energetic. I don't know how she managed to get up before all of us, then stay up later than all of us! Perfectly organised. The only down-side I think is that a lot of our stops were for one night only. I would have enjoyed a little more time in some places, but I think that's what you get with budget group travel. All in all, I had a great time and would do it all again.

    I have to admit that I was a bit apprehensive signing up for a bus tour with a bunch of random people, but now I would totally do it again especially with Topdeck. Our tour guide Nicole was top notch and a whole lot of fun. She was loaded with insight and definitely provided us with plenty of enjoyment. The driver Greg was great too. His driving skills were excellent and safe and his comic relief sure kept us entertained. The hotels were all well above average and in prime locations. The food provided was delicious and offered a wide variety of local and unique cuisines. Destinations were great and the optional side trips were a neat addition that I probably wouldn't have considered had I not been on this tour. Overall I am completely satisfied and anxious to plan future trips through Topdeck. Hands down one of the most memmorable vacations I have ever had. I loved the tour so much and would have never expected to say that. Well worth the cost. Thanks Topdeck for providing such an amazing experience.

    This trip was amazing. At first I didn't want to travel to these countries but i'm so glad I took my friends recommendation. Tom was a great tour guide and having Ronnie as our driver made the perfect combination. It was the perfect itinerary and the only thing I could fault was that some of the hotels didn't have lifts, but you get over that. I would highly recommend!!
