Hi all, isn’t the new Top Deck site great! I’m glad they’ve finally got this forum so we can all chat.[br]I’m heading off on the Spirit of Europe tour that starts on 27 September. I’ll be travelling with a mate from here in Australia but would really love to hear from anyone else who’s doing the trip.[br]I’m also keen to hear people’s feedback about this and other Top Deck tours in Europe.[br]I’d really appreciate any inside info on best places to visit, must-dos and nice places to eat when we’re not having a group meal.[br]Thanks![br]

Hi Nicola, I’m glad my friend Meg and I aren’t the only ones on this trip! We picked up our trip notes today and so far it all looks great. The places we’ll be staying all look nice and the ones that are a bit out of the way all seem to have shuttle buses, which is great.[br]So what’s Perth like, I’ve always wanted to go there?
