Review for another Topdeck tour
“Accomodation mostly good throughout the tour (as long as you dont have high standards).
Group atmosphere lacked in my experience.
Could do with reviewing some of the optionals.
Tour guide was good and had a lot of knowledge regarding each city we visited.
It is quite rushed whit a lot of time spent on the coach which I knew in advance. All in all I found 14 days on an organised tour was great for me.”
