Trip Overview

TRIP VIBE = fast-paced fun with tons of socialising, bucket-list sights and good times all round. Psyched to discover the glorious jumble of lands in Central and Eastern Europe? Ready to share the ride with a mixed bunch of travellers just as pumped as you are? You’re in EXACTLY the right place. From the mazy canals of Venice to the sparkly coastlines of the French Riviera, the ruin bars of Budapest to the Gothic-ness of Prague – your wildest Euro dreams will be well and truly made.

Worth noting…
Departing 3 July 2024? You’re heading to Genoa instead of the French Riviera on Days 5 and 6. Think: bustling piazzas and a lively nightlife.

  • Keely Hi June 2024

    Howard, Nick and Sean were amazing. This was my first trip overseas as a solo traveller. Howard made me feel at ease, as he gave us substantial information about things to do, places to eat and drink in every place that we visited on the trip. Sean and Nick were amazing drivers. Howard, Sean and Nick were professional, polite and demonstrated kindness. They were reliable and consistent with their approach. I would recommend Topdeck to any young person looking to travel overseas in the future.

  • Anonymous June 2024

    Over all experience was great and the team did their best to make our trip as comfortable and enjoyable as we can.

    It's not perfect of course. Some minor inconvenience that im sure will improve in time. But would highly recommend it to the younger generation as the tour was fast paced that I can barely keep up with the energy of the people I am with. Other than my age is reflecting, the tour is perfect for the youth and youth by heart.

    Would definitely be back in Europe to explore some more.

    Kudos to Howard, Sean and Nick for all your assistance and for putting up with us. You surely made our trip memorable 😊

    Was my first time travelling and this tour didn’t disappoint. Everything about it was awesome. So thankful to have had such an amazing trip leader Renee and an amazing bus driver Jaka.
