    Jared is a very good guide and friend. As a Brazilian, with a not so good English, he was very empathetic with me and made effort to include me in the group. Also, I had some problems during my trip and he helped me a lot.

Frequently Asked Questions

    • When and where does the tour end?

      This tour ends at approximately 9 pm at Generator Hostel in London depending on traffic conditions, however, you also have the option to finish the tour at 8 am in Amsterdam, instead of taking the complimentary return transfer to London. Please be aware that the drop-off point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • When and where does the tour start?

      The first day of this tour generally starts from Generator Hostel in London at 6 am. Due to the early start, we recommend arriving at least one day prior to the tour, so you have time to settle in and make sure you do not miss the departure! You also have the option to meet up with your group at approximately 5 pm in Paris on the first day of the tour if you wish. Please be aware the starting point is subject to change until your final documents are released.

    • Do you arrange airport transfers?

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

    • Can you assist with booking additional accommodation?

      Of course, we can! Once you have a confirmed booking on this tour, we can request additional accommodation for you with the tour operator.

    • What is the age range?

      Topdeck creates trip itineraries designed exclusively for younger travellers. They can be more fast-paced, budget-minded, and includes activities for travellers to meet and have fun with other young passengers from all parts of the world! Their brand is designed around this unique experience geared toward younger travellers, so only passengers aged 18 - 39 years old can travel on this tour.

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

      A single supplement is, unfortunately, not available for this tour, so if you are a solo traveller you will be roomed in dorm-share accommodation with your fellow travellers.

    • Is there a hotel list available?

      The tour operator has advised that they do not have a list of accommodations available for the Winter Getaway tour, as the accommodations change so frequently. After the booking is made you will be issued your final trip documents with your specific accommodation details.

      On this tour, you will be staying 11 nights in hostels, 4 nights in bungalows and 2 nights in hotel upgrades. This tour is multi-share, meaning you will share your hostel room with between 3 and 5 others (although in some circumstances you will share with more than 5). When you stay in hotels you will be staying in twin or triple-share rooms and in bungalows you will be staying with up to 4 people in a room. Please note that all multi-share accommodations are single-sex.

    • Do I need a visa?

      As a tour booking website, TourRadar cannot organise visas for you on your behalf as the visa requirements are regularly being updated and vary for the nationality of one traveller to the next. It is for this reason that we recommend checking with your local embassy or consulate website for the latest up to date information.

    • Is it possible to join the tour at a specific location?

      You are more than welcome to join and leave the tour at any time. However, as these are pre-packaged tours, this will not alter the cost.
