Trip Itinerary

  1. Berlin, Germany

    1

    With more museums than rainy days and some of the best DJs on the continent, the only thing you'll miss out on in Berlin is sleep – but there's plenty of time for that later. Drop your bags and get the trip admin sorted at the hostel before getting to know your new trip pals over dinner.

    As a usual single/couple traveller, the trip seemed a bit expensive, however I feel the Norway portion of the trip could have added significantly to the cost, as well as obligations with where to stay as a tour provider in Russia etc, so it may have been good value for money. I'm happy with almost all of the places we stayed, which I reviewed through the app, and understand there are costs involved in transportation also.

    This trip offers a good mix of culture from big European cities to nature and outdoor experiences. Covering ten countries over 37 days - there was a significant area covered; however time just flew as each day brought new and interesting sights. I thought the trip was an appropriate duration, with a great mix of accommodation and amazing food provided by Topdeck. For me, there isn't anything I would change about this tour.
