    5.0 - Excellent

    The tour and the tour guide far exceeded my expectations! It was the best experience of my life and possibly the best thing I have ever spent money on. The tour leader clearly loves her job and went out of her way to ensure we all had an amazing, safe, and easy holiday!

    5.0 - Excellent

    The tour was tones of fun, the places we went beautiful and the people always friendly. I joined a tour group hallway through their big tour and they welcomed me in straight away. The bus driver and tour leader where awesome, always having a laugh and where so helpful and informative about all the places we went, they went out of their way on the free days to make sure we found our way around and gave us tips on places to eat and drink in every city and things to see that we probably wouldn't have known about.

    4.5 - Excellent

    I was given mixed reviews about going on a tour like this and I was slightly worried it was going to be terrible. Little did I know it was one of the best experiences. I saw soo many parts of Europe I would have never travelled to on my own and it was great having Jen and Gabi there to give us such important and interesting information about every country. While both of them remained extremely professional during the whole trip, they were also a lot of fun. I met some extremely incredible people from all around the world, that I still to this day keep in contact with. So, Thank you Jen! And thank you top deck for an amazing once in a life time experience.

    I did the 3 week Topdeck Olympic Link tour in Aug. I would give it maybe a 7.5 out of 10 as an overall rating. This tour started in Athens, went up the Adriatic coast hitting up most major cities up to Berlin, then over to Amsterdam and then ended in London. The group was pretty young, for the most part. THere were many 18 yr old, but a few in their 30s too. It was pretty much a constant party. most people got trashed every night, to be honest. There were a few who didnt, but that wasnt the norm. It was mostly Aussies, a few kiwis, 2 Cdns, 2 South Africans, and 1 Brit. Some of the highlights included the beaches of Mykonos, Sarajevo, Budapest, Berlin, and Amsterdam. THese were awesome places with lots to see and do. The weather was awesome for the majority of the trip, which was a bonus. The tour leader was great, as was the driver. For packing, shorts, tank tops, flip flops, and bathing suits did it for the most part! I took 1 pair of jeans, and 2 light sweaters, and that was enough. some people had so much stuff, and it seemed unnecessary. One thing I noticed was that Topdeck says theres a size and weight limit for stuff on the tour, but you can pretty much disregard this - some people had HUGE suitcases that they couldnt even carry up any steps... ugh. One thing that I didnt like about the trip was that this tour joined up with a tour that had already been running for 2 weeks. this meant that the other 30 people had made tight groups of friends. they were nice to us who joined in Athens, but never invited us along to anything, wanted us to sit with them, etc. THis is something I mentioned on the evaluation... overall, it was decent.
