Time to play. Space to pause. Room to do you.

Play & Pause = the perfect mix of group activities and all-important YOU time.  

We’re talking a small bunch of travel buds to share those bucket-list experiences with. Hella awesome Trip Leaders who know their stuff. Free time for those this-is-what-I-came-for moments. And space to chill at the end of the day.

Logistics = sorted. You do you. But with us.

Is Play & Pause your vibe?

Fast-forward to the deets

  1. Size matters. Max group size = 28 (with an average of 22). Share the fun times with a smaller crew.

  2. Tick off the top sights AND get bags of free time to do you. The balance is *chef’s kiss* just right.

  3. Dorms aren’t for everyone. Facts. You'll stay in private accom – twin-share with en suite (a tinsy, tiny number of trips include a night in multi-share, too). Meaning? Time and space to unwind. And no queuing for the showers. Win.  

  4. You’ve done the research. We’ve sorted the logistics. And your Trip Leader’s always there for on-the-road inspo and guidance. More time to tick off those bucket list activities!

  5. Play & Pause are multi-destination trips in Europe and Asia. Welcome and farewell dinners are always included, plus extra meals on certain days.

There was a balance of group activities but also no pressure to take part if you wanted to wander off and do your own thing! Also, Zoe (Trip Leader) was very supportive and very flexible to tend to everyone’s wants and needs. She had everything covered!

It was a fantastic trip! I felt comfortable and loved the experiences that were included as well as the opportunity for free exploration. All round, it was an incredible experience and I know I'll carry the memories with me for years to come!

5.0 out of 5 stars

It was nice to have the whole route planned out and to be shown all the highlights on the walking tours, but with still enough time to do individual activities and have free time. All the activities and group dinners were very good and the Topdeck staff went above and beyond to help.
