    I had an amazing time. Emily and Gary were fantastic the entire time and with this trip being my first solo travel, they have definitely made it one to remember and one I hope to repeat again in the future. Thank you!

    Topdeck is a programme to make solo travels to a group one, but it isn't worth your money. First of all, though it is quite pricey, it doesn't offer that much. We did around 6 days of traveling and it cost around 700 pounds. We had our 6- room dormitory room, every hostel morning meal, 20 minutes of the walking tour in 3 cities, and two dinners. Other were all optionary tours, which cost more euros. Whilst creating the illusion of a cool international trip, it was actually more domestic than international, 95 % of travelers being Australians. Lastly, our tour leader, Babara, she didn't take care of the travelers. She even ignored the responsibility of making it sure that every traveler is on the bus, and had new travelers left behind. In a nutshell, this programme is not a recommendable program. Please find another tour if you're a not Austrailian.

    Really good tour covering lots of sights and experiences I had hoped for. Great, knowledgeable tour guide Vin. Great accomodation in Budapest and Prague, however not the best in Krakow. The only thing I didn't realise was that my 7 day tour was apart of a much larger 24 day tour. I have never experienced this when on tour so this was a little different. A really enjoyable tour overall and would recommend.

    Topdeck was our first ever tour and our tour guide Jody made it the highlight of our European adventure. Jody's knowledge, charisma and fluency made for an excellent learning and fun experience. We would definitely embark on another tour with Jody.

    Spires in the Snow was made amazing by Sarah, she really made everyone feel so involved and was such a happy guide! I think the trip was definitely made better by Sarah and wouldn't have been the same without her
