Questions & Answers

Here we have collected and answered the most frequently asked questions about this tour.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

      Airport transfers are not available for this tour so you will have to make your own way from and to the airport.

    • I'm a solo traveller, is there a single supplement?

      A single supplement is not available for this tour as Topdeck is unable to organise a private room, so if you are a solo traveller you will be roomed in dorm-share accommodation with your fellow travellers.

    • When and where does the tour end?

      The tour ends at approximately 9 pm in London at the Generator Hostel, however, the drop-off point will be confirmed at the time of booking. We never recommend booking a flight on the evening of the last day of the tour, as London is a big city and traffic is very unpredictable and an unforeseen delay might interfere with getting to your flight on time.
