    The trip was great. Both Megan, our team leader and Squatter, our driver were excellent fun. Both added to the trip and made sure we had an amazing time. :)

    Just finsihed this tour 5 days ago. had the best time doing it. Its literally a whistle stop tour of the East Coast showing off all the highlights down the coast in as many places as possible. the accommmodation standard and food quality was excellent and the included tours and excursions were very good value for money. As were the optional extras. I would highly reccommend booking the great barrier reef trip...dont worry if your not a great swimmer, i am rubbish but still managed to go snorkelling!! i also skydived in byron bay which was amazing. both of these are optional extras at addditional cost but excellent value for money. Alan the tour guide and Matty the driver were fantastic. Both were very knowledgeable in the tours and always professional. They were also very good fun and liked to mingle with the group during group activities and nights out. They certainley made the trip the experience that it was. it is very much a whistlestop tour and you are rarely in the same place for more than a day/night. This can be exhausting, however, it was definately great value for money as when in each place we were shown main attractions and highlights before being left to explore. If you want a lot of time in each place then this tour may not be for you. However, if like myself you are on a limited time scale and want to see as much as possible, as well as all the most recommended and some of the lesser known but amazing places the east coast has to offer, then this is definately recommended. I booked this tour last minute and was terrified before going as i had never done anything like this before. I met some amazing people on this tour, some of whom have gone on to become great friends. The time you spend with theses people is so intense, you are together 24 hours a day for 14 days and having a great tour group makes a massive difference. 95% of the people travelling on this tour were travelling alone which made me feel more at ease as we were all in the same situation. The group activities and dinners helped everyone to mingle and get to know each other and the whole tour was well planned out and executed. I think whenever i am travelling from now on I will definately be looking to book topdeck tours whenever possible. Amazing tour!! 5 stars!!

    I went on the Grand Aussie Reverse. It was my best experience ever of Australia with an amazing team throughout the whole journey. Starting in Darwin with Rach, Nat and Tara, travelling down to Alice Springs with AMAZING food (seriously good!!) brilliant knowledge of the area and culture, and an awesome bunch of people to experience it with. Arriving with the next part of the tour in Cairns was Kate, Ben, Tara and again another bunch of travellers ready to explore Australia. Every place we went to never failed to amaze me, i was so impressed by everything. The team were so passionate about each place we went to as well and always suggested things to do or where to have an amazing lunch. Much fun! I would highly recommend this trip, its the best way to see Australia!

        Very knowledgeable and quick to respond.The prices were good and consistent so once we found the tour we wanted we didn't have to shop the net to see if the price was the best since this was the best price out there. We will definitely recommend TourRadar and will use them again.
