So I did my first Contiki tour last year at 37, and wish I’d found out about it earlier. Went to the Greek Islands for the Mykonos and Island cruising trip. Gotta say I had a great time. Since I’m in great shape and still have a full head of hair, I guess I fit right in with the mostly mid 20’s crowd. (3 or 4 in their low 30’s.) At any rate, now I’m 38, and I wanted to go on their Amsterdam to Barcelona tour, yet when I tried to book the trip, I was told 37 is their cut off on exceptions. Now I need to know where to go from here? I kept up with the 20 somethings quite well, (although one night when a few of them wanted to hit a night club that opened at 3 am after partying at Mykonos Beach all day, made me say no thank you.) so I know I still want to be with an adventurous group, just not a crazy one. On the other hand, I don’t want to get couped up with the 40 and 50 somethings that tour by day and sleep by 11 pm. I like touring the area, and then having a tour guide who will know the “cool” spots to go to enjoy some nightlife. Will I find that with Topdeck? Love to hear some advice.

While I haven’t been on a topdeck tour YET (2 weeks !), I did extensive research on both companies before booking. Topdeck seems like the winner in every category, unless you have being pressured to get wasted everyday as criteria.

Topdeck has a far better reputation for being about exploring and sightseeing instead of just booze cruising the continent. I’ve also read that the food and optional activities are significantly better with topdeck.

I guess it’s all about what you make it, but I would certainly rather be with like-minded individuals from day one.

Good luck!

I have know a few people either get a yes or no from top deck in regards to their age. It’s prob best you ring top deck & talk with them about the tour you want to go on & they can advise you from there.
Another company that might want to look at is Kumuka worldwide, their age range in 18 to 55 yr olds, but tend to get lete 20’s, 30’s & early 40’s … Hope this helps
