Who are Topdeck

So, who the hell are Topdeck?

Short answer: we’re the travel-enthusiast fairy godmother you never had. We’re your hassle-free ticket to discovering more destinations. Your exit from the daily grind into life changing experiences. A chance to uncover extraordinary with a bunch of curious, like-minded people – with the freedom to delve deeper and just be you.  

Aged 18 to 30-something? We’re devoted to making your travel dreams a reality. And after years in the group travel biz we know what you want – and we aren’t scared of over-delivering. Forget forking out for the logistics, we’ll sort it for you. Accommodation, experiences, transport... we've got you.

Then? There’s all that free time to just. do. you. Be spontaneous. Do your thing. ‘Cause this is what you came for. And if you need local tips, we’ve got your back. Our Trip Leaders are the experts who don’t just lead; who inspire. Who will make your world come alive, and were born to do it.  

A Topdeck trip is an alternate reality. A realer real, away from home, work, the usual. Your chance to be the best version of yourself. To be an insider, not a bystander. To share incredible moments with people who are 100% different, but 100% the same. To strip it all back and find the real you.  

Trust us, if you go it alone, it sure as hell won’t be the same.

Where it all started...

Topdeck 1973


Like most bloody brilliant ideas, Topdeck was born when a bunch of friends decided to embark on an adventure of a lifetime. Skroo Turner and his mates bought a double-decker bus in London, rallied a group of like-minded travellers and drove across Europe to Morocco. The result? The trip was such a hit they did it again, and again, and again.

We hit the festival scene. Throwing tomatoes, sinking steins and pulling out all the moves at Europe’s most iconic festivals.

Every aspect of every Topdeck trip has been tweaked, refined, prodded and poked by people who refuse to sacrifice quality, independence and freedom. We know what works, we inspire and we never. stop. exploring.
