Gliding along Venice’s Grand Canal. Gawping at Rome’s iconic monuments. Stuffing your face with gelato in Florence. This could be YOU on our Italy tours. Yeah, we hit up those famous Italian landmarks (buongiorno Leaning Tower of Pisa), but we also uncover the REAL Italia – from the gobsmacking Italian coastline to carb-loaded cuisine so goddamn good *chef’s kiss* doesn’t cover it.

Topdeck’s Greece tours = the stuff of legend. From Greek beaches you'll be dreaming of FOREVER to historic Greece landmarks that straight-up make your eyes pop out your head – looking at you, Acropolis and the Parthenon – travel to Greece with us and experience it all for REAL. Greek island hop ‘til you drop. Snack on alllll the souvlaki. Go crazy for Corfu. And Athens? It’s ancient history [wink].

The Eiffel Tower. Picture-perfect patisseries in Paris (bonus tongue-twister). The seriously glam French coast. Stop Googling ‘things to do in France’ and prepare to tick off some epic France landmarks with us. Fairytale castles, fine wines and *fabulous* French cuisine are covered on our France tours. And when you need recs for restaurants in France? Your Trip Leader’s got a list longer than that baguette you just demolished.

*Curtseys* a right royal welcome to our UK tours. Kick off in legendary London, discover the medieval secrets of Edinburgh and track down Nessie in the Scottish Highlands. From England’s landmarks to Wales’ wonders, these UK trips put the GREAT in Great Britain (true story). And the Emerald Isle? Delve into Ireland’s best attractions – from Dublin’s buzzing bars to Galway’s pristine beaches.

You know the red dress woman emoji? On our tours of Spain you’ll get to see her for REAL at a flamenco show in Barcelona or Seville. Sweet! Other things to do in Spain = munch tapas in Madrid. Splash about in San Sebastián (expect knockout Spanish beaches). Then siesta-and-sangria your way around town like a local. Need tips? Our Trip Leaders know the best spots for authentic Spanish cuisine. 

You want the stunning Croatian coastline, beaut beaches and phenomenal cities of Croatia wrapped up in one tidy package? Our Croatia tours give you just that. Sail and swim your way around the hotspots – with stop-offs in Dubrovnik, Split, Hvar and Korcula. Or join one of our big Euro trips that add Croatia travel into the mix. Either way, this place needs to be on your bucket list. Stat.

Things to do in Europe

Real value

Europe has a sh*tload going on. And if Excel budgets and day-by-day planners aren’t your thing, sorting the logistics will make you hyperventilate. Picking the best hostel in Amsterdam. Booking that ferry from Athens. Getting to Lake Bled. Finding a 24-hr pierogi place in Kraków. Forget, it – we’ll sort it for you. Meaning? No hassle. No number crunching. No going hungry. You’re safe with us. Yeah, you can do it alone, but it sure as hell won’t be the same.

Your Europe Qs answered

When’s the best time to visit Europe?

Sun worshippers will want to visit Europe between June and August when the weather is warmest. If you’re after smaller crowds and lower prices, spring (March to May) and autumn (September to November) are a good bet. Psyched to make snow angels? Check out our winter Euro trips!

What will I need for a trip through Europe?

Joining one of our big Europe trips? Awesome! Check your trip notes for suggestions on what to pack. Don’t forget your passport, any necessary visas and your COVID-19 vaccination record (or medical exemption document).

How much money will I need for a European trip, and will I need currency other than euros?

It depends! You’ll need to budget for spending money, meals (only the ones which aren’t included, obvs) and those immense optional activities. Go through your itinerary and think about the optionals you’re keen to experience – it’s all part of the fun! 

Most European countries use euros (EUR). These are the exceptions: the United Kingdom (British pounds), Denmark (Danish krone), Sweden (Swedish krona), Czech Republic (Czech koruna), Croatia (Croatian kuna), Hungary (Hungarian forint), Poland (Polish złoty), Romania (Romanian leu) and Bulgaria (Bulgarian lev).

Is tipping common in Europe?

In European restaurants, if you’re happy with the service you can leave a few extra euros to thank your waiter/waitress. Most people tip between 5% and 10% of the bill. Some restaurants add a ‘service charge’ on top of your bill – this is your tip, so don’t forget to check! 

What are the most common languages used in Europe?

English is the most widely spoken second language across Europe BUT that doesn’t mean everybody speaks it. There may be times when you’ll need to communicate with people who don’t speak the same language as you – it’s all part of authentic travelling, and a smile goes a long way! 

German, French and Italian have the highest number of native speakers in the EU. 

Bonus questions...

Will I need a visa and/or travel insurance to travel to Europe?

You must have comprehensive travel insurance to participate in a Topdeck trip to Europe. You will be unable to join us without it. 

It’s your responsibility to obtain the correct visas for your trip. Ask your travel agent or check with the relevant embassies before you depart. 

Find travel advice for Australia citizens here, for New Zealand citizens here, for US citizens here, for Canadian citizens here and for British citizens here. If you’re travelling from a country not listed here, head to the relevant government website for more information.

What are the health and vaccine requirements for travel to Europe?

We recommend you consult your doctor about health and vaccination requirements before you travel to Europe. 

Don’t forget – you must be vaccinated against COVID-19 to travel with us, unless you are medically exempt. Find out more here

For current travel safety advice, please check your home country’s travel advisories.

What do I need to charge my devices in Europe?

It depends where you’re going, but Type C plugs (230 volts) are a good bet for most European countries (the UK and Ireland are an exception and use Type G). 

We recommend you bring a universal plug adapter – airports usually sell them, but it’s cheaper to buy one before you go.
