    Amazing trip! We had a small group of only 17, which was a perfect size. Our trip leader, Diarmaid, was also full of great tips and suggestions of things to do. Russia was definitely a highlight, and just awesome to experience in winter.

    Absolutely fantastic way to get a taste of St. Petersburg’s and Moscow! Estonia and Finland were added bonuses! I really appreciated the freedom that topdeck allows with exploring cities but also encouraging everyone to get together and make memories.
