I’m a yes girl. I’ve always prided myself on that. Travel has been a natural extension to that facet of my personality – I love how it continually pushes me out of my comfort zone and forces or invites me to try things I’m not sure how I feel about. In some cases, I’m lucky enough …

TOP DECK vs CONTIKI

I did two tours with Contiki last year and they were great! It was through USA though so the age group was a little higher since the drinking age is 21, but our group ranged from early 20s to 30ish and everyone got on great! And there was a range of people who liked to party and others who preferred to have a quiet night in. In saying that I am booked on a Topdeck tour this year through Europe, I found that Topdeck had a tour that went to all the places I wanted to go to and was a little cheaper than Contiki. So I really guess in the end it depends on who goes where you want to go and how much you want to spend, you’ll have a great time with either!

My partner and I did a contiki tour around central europe last year (we are both 23)… we had an awesome time… the group ranged in age and the tour guide was freaking awesome (and not sleazy)…we went out and partied, but also took it easy most nights (im not really much of a party animal)

This year we are doing europe again (just different parts) and we are doing it through top deck, because contiki didnt offer the exact places we wanted and the UK tour started and finished in seperate locations instead of starting and finishing in london (this makes it cheaper when you travel onto your next destination - depending where your going of course)…

So really its about personal preferences, keep in mind you get out of it as much as you put into it… so enjoy where ever you go!!!

@hannahnz wrote:

I did a camping trip last year and had the time of my life. I wouldn’t travel with anyone but Topdeck now. Contiki has a similar trip to the one that I did with Topdeck and from what I read on the Contiki site the trip was shorter, more expensive, and went to a couple less countries than the one I did with Topdeck.

There was a big age range on my tour from 19 to about 36, but everyone got on really well. I would say the majority were early-mid 20s

The accommodation for Topdeck and Contiki is pretty much the same, we shared many campsites with contiki tours, not sure about hostels and hotels though. Food provided by the wonderful topdeck chefs was great - no complaints!

The one thing that put me off Contiki was their reputation for partying every night and spending every day hungover and the trip leaders hitting on everyone. I wanted to spend my money on seeing the sights and enjoying the cities and not it being a drunken/hungover haze.

Anyway, I am sure you two will decide which tour company would be best suited to you and will enjoy it no matter which one you pick. I am biased though because I think topdeck is the best!

I did the topdeck tour “discover europe” last july and it was great. There was a wide age range of people but we all got along well.
The tour I did was a hotel tour so we had some group meals all together (sometimes at the hotel resturant or at a local place) and a lot of the time broke off into smaller groups to go out for dinner.
There were designated days we could go off on our own, usually a full day in whatever place we had stopped for two nights.
I would definately recommend topdeck
