FANTASTIC Leader who worked hard and ensured that all members were happy.
All the places were excellent. Though sometimes we left a but rushed
Absolutely great and fun time.
I loved that we visited so many places in one trip. I also loved that there were not many tourists because of the winter season. I would definitely do another winter tour.
A great mix of time to yourself to explore, with arranged activities. I could focus on having a great time with my tour mates - our amazing bus driver and tour leader taking care of the rest. Amazing locations good mix of fascinating history, beautiful scenery and great food.
A taste of every city so you know what you don't like and what you want to see again
Perfect time of year to visit the countries we did. Learnt so much about each city and country. Enjoyed the sun in some places and the snow in others. An amazingly put together trip that covered so much for the perfect amount of time
Every single day was incredible, I didn’t have a single bad moment on this trip!! Europe in winter is absolutely amazing
It’s was amazing I just couldn’t adjust to the temperature
Great locations and time, unique local experiences
Tour guide knew the history of everything, went to so many amazing places & made a lot of new friends.
Such a well organised and planned trip that made every guest feel comfortable and at ease. Loved it
So worth the money! I thought 24 days would be too long of a trip, but I found a family in the end and didn't want the trip to finish. I got to see a little of every place. I will definitely recommend the trip to my friends and strangers and anyone willing to listen in the future.
Overall the trip was great. Really wish the travel time on the bus was less or we caught trains to the cities to cut out long travel days. Included dinners were good but I was so sick of eating bread, ham and chess for breakfast. Literally drove me crazy. I think Topdeck need to look at updating their accommodation options, especially in Switzerland (tiny rooms for four people, paying for hot showers and having to walk from the cabin to the showers was freezing and annoying) also in Rome (it’s good that there is public transport but not when the traffic so bad it would take 2 hours to catch the bus, ending up walking an hour in the rain to get the stupid campsite).
The walking tours were informative, I loved learning about the history and interesting facts.
Great overview of Europe. Beautiful winter wonderland! I didn't think it was too fast paced.
It’s really worth it. Yes it was a fast paced tour, like a whole day per country. But for the price, you can’t beat it.
Great intinerary, good mix of western and Eastern Europe
Felt like a dream within a dream. Perfect
Fantastic itinerary with two nights at most places. The included extras were great value for money and the optional extras were excited and catered for a rage of people!
The must see sights of Europe were all included. Easy way to see everything!!
Got what I paid for which is exactly what you want when you go on a holiday
I love Topdeck - I will 100% go on another
A fantastic way to experience a broad spectrum of European culture and see bucket list sights
Perfect for whoever wants a small taste of each country! With one day in each place it allowed me to see and experience many places. I like to think of it as a try-before-you-buy trip, I know where I want to revisit for next time!
A good price for a long and quality experience.
Everything was perfect and Switzerland was by far my most favourite place because of the snow and the town we stayed in was beautiful
Value for money was mostly okay! I think some of the included dinners werent that appealing. Mostly the hostels were quite nice but the hostels in Rome and Krakow really weren't that great at all.
The trip was an incredible experience -made possible by the amazing team of Tim our trip leader and Stefan our driver. We were given enough free time to explore each city, with some incredible included activities and optional extras.
I had an excellent trip as I got to see many places in such a short amount of time. My trip leader was very passionate about the history of each place we went to and I felt like I had an intimate knowledge of every location I went to.
I felt like this trip was exactly and more of what I expected. From the sights, to the history to the extra activities, it blew me away with amazement.
The Winter Spirit visited some magical, interesting, emotional and wonderful places.
It was possibly the best time of my life made lots of new friends and experienced so many new things along the way.
I loved this trip! But one concern myself and a few others had was the expense of going up Jungfrau in Switzerland. It was nearly $200 Australian and when the weather was bad sky diving wasn’t an option. So possibly, maybe some more affordable options can be noted or recommended in case this happens. But besides that, not a single fault!
Good overview but difficult to really see everything in each city. Many late nights and early mornings in order to fit all those cities in
Super rad group of people so many awesome destinations!! However, our core group was so tight knit that picking up others in different city ruined the vibe.
I loved the trip, travelling with a group was a lovely experience, however the trip leader ruined it. I decided very quickly to avoid him and make the best of it on my own.
Excellent time to travel!
The trip itinerary was amazing but once meeting other people we found out some had paid almost $1,000 less than others which was extremely disappointing since you advertise to buy early for a better price.
far too rushed, but absolutely beautiful!
한달이 안되는 시간에 유럽의 주요 도시를 방문하면서 배우고, 느낀게 많습니다.
정말 좋은 여행이었습니다.
Value for money. Accommodation, travel and lots of food covered.
Fun, knowledgeable, professional yet friendly tour leader and bus driver. Great people and great places
It was a good trip and went to lots of interesting places
Great time, great pruchase.
This tour was a fantastic combination of parts of Europe in Winter. I loved the places we went. I just hated some of the people on the tour but they can't affect how much I loved the sights.
Great value for money and the staff were fantastic
This was worth what you paid however they dont always explain all the extra costs eg extra activities
My only concern was the reduced amount of free time we were given. Meals were planned for majority of nights and therefore the cost of the tour was drastically increased.
Places were spectacular enjoyed every minute.
I would and have recommended topdeck tours to friends and family. I had such an amazing time with a group of people i can now call friends. Our tour leader (Melisa) and driver (Andrea) were both amazing, super helpful and knowledgable. The group tour really helped us get into places that would be difficult to get into travelling alone and they knew whats good to do so every activity is a blast.
Fantastic value for money, stress free and fun 24/7
great way to see Europe!!
Generally good value for money. Some accommodation was really below par.
Spectacular honestly the best month of my life couldn't have been better
Excellent value for money, excellent experiences, gives enough free time for you to do what you want but also heaps of optional activities if you don't know what to do. Amazing tour leader as well that made the trip 100 times better.
Highly recommend! professional, well planned and overall awesome!
Perfect amount of time to always be on your feet seeing new places, not too long or short and showed some fantastic places in Europe
The included extras were really good and included food was at a high level
Everything was awesome the only real thing that was a bit disappointing was the set menu the first night in Budapest - the restaurant was highly over priced in comparison to surrounding areas and we waited a long time to eat (easily over an hour). Felt like they were taking advantage of us being in a large group and obviously tourists.
I would not have chosen a different tour. The chance to see so many different places in such a short amount of time was incredible. I would 100% do a similar trip again.
Great value, good travel guide & awesome included experiences.
Really enjoyed Poland, good choice of places, reasonable accommodation
Was well worth the money, all activities were a great experience and didn't feel like I was ripped off
The Winter Spirit trip was the perfect way to test out Europe and get a feel for which countries I would like to go back to. 2 nights in each place was perfect because it meant there was a whole day of exploring the city. The optional activities were great because it gave you something to do and a bit of a kick start to knowing the city as well as ticking off so many bucket list items.
The hostel type accommodation was quite good as they were very good standard hostels. The hotel upgrade in Venice was awesome, they had really nice rooms.
Best thing I've ever decide to do with my best friend, it was affordable, easy, organised, fun, amazing and would 10 out of 10 do it again!
As stated above. It was good but I felt it was too rushed.
got what i paid for...and more
The price and what you got for the price. Was very welled put together. Experience was worth the price
December is still relatively warm (except poland) and you get to experience the christmas activities to top off an already great trip.
This trip gave you a little taste of everything. Even when I injured myself and left the trip early Kieran and marek were sending me regular photos so I felt I was still apart of the team.
Pretty on par with price. It was affordable for my girl friends and I. Buffet breakfasts were a life saver AND only having to organise our own dinner ever second night also made things enjoyable and easy on the budget. The amount of days we were gone- and the total amount that we spent were incredible. Loved it. Very cost effective
Throughly enjoyed the trip and the hostels were well placed.
The tour involved everything I wanted to do which is why I rate my purchase 5 stars. The only downfall was that it was only 24 days, wish it could have been longer!
Got to see all of Europe in a safe and easy way. Absolutely amazing value for what we paid.
Value for money and an easy and enjoyable way to travel. I never would have had the same experience if I did it on my own.
Worth every last dollar, value for money was exceeded! I loved my expericane as a topdecker.
I found many of the meals lacking, though the establishments were pleasant. The "day stops" were more like an hour, which I found highly misleading and annoying as most stores and attractions were impossible to see in such a short amount of time *even if they were open).
Purchase was fairly priced!
The opportunities this tour provided were tremendous, really gave you the ability to experience the world in a different way.
The crew were amazing and so helpful with all our questions and mistakes we made along the way.
Poor quality of hostels and tours
Worth it in terms of budget and experiences granted
So many sights with none of the worry :)
You get SO much out of your time there and It truly was amazing experiencing Europe in winter
Definitely for people who love winter! So many countries covered in snow, made for some awesome skiing days and the most breathtaking scenic views.
Easy to book and purchase
This was a fantastic way to see Europe when you didn't have months to travel. The trip was very well planned out, and it was nice having everything organized. You just had to show up with your bag and off you went!
So many beautiful places in such a short amount of time. Loved the free day allowing for free roaming and soaking in the atmosphere of each city.
Really good organisation, great amount of time and would 100% recommend the winter spirit
Would've received 5 stars, but my accomodation in Rome was freezing and my heater/air conditioner didn't work 😅
Great trip with fantastic people!
My trip leader RU was amazing !!
