Day 1: Prague
Our Topdeck trip begins this evening in Prague, a stunning city home to landmarks such as Charles Bridge, Hradcany Castle, the Tyn Church and Wenceslas Square. We meet our Topdeck Trip Leader to find our more information about the trip, before enjoying an included group dinner in a local restaurant, giving us chance to sample Czech cuisine and meet our travelling companions. Tonight, perhaps we can check out why Prague’s nightlife is so famous!
Day 2: Prague
Prague is a favourite city amongst our Topdeck Crew – for good reason! Today is free to explore this Gothic city full of dramatic spires, cobbled alleys, rumbling trams, hand-made puppets and artists around Charles Bridge. Stroll through the Jewish Quarter, visit Old Town Square and the medieval Town Hall, and perhaps find an old traditional inn to try the excellent (and cheap) local beer.
Day 3: Berlin
Welcome to Germany! First up we stop in 800 year old Dresden, a city which has heroically rebuilt itself following near-destruction during World War II. After seeing the symbolic Frauenkirche and other beautiful buildings we continue on to Berlin, Germany’s vibrant capital. A driving tour with our Topdeck Crew takes in the remains of the Berlin Wall, the Brandenburg Gate, Reichstag building, Holocaust Memorial, Checkpoint Charlie and more impressive landmarks. Tonight we enjoy a ‘Totally Topdeck’ included dinner at the world-famous Hofbräuhaus – time for a roasted pork knuckle. Delicious!
Day 4: Berlin
Berlin is ours to discover today. We can hear about the rise and fall of the Nazis on an optional ‘Third Reich’ walking tour this morning, which takes in sites of historical significance including the spot where Hitler had his bunker. Other attractions include world class museums such as the German History Museum and the Pergamon Museum, the massive Berlin Zoo, and a myriad of cool shops, cafés and bars. Tonight we can take an optional Nightlife tour and check out some of Berlin’s coolest nightspots!
Day 5: Amsterdam
It’s a fairly long drive today, which gives us chance to conserve our energy for Amsterdam! The ‘Dam is a city of contrasts where bicycles, clogs, tulips and the infamous Red Light District live side by side in harmony. Just outside the city we stop at a traditional farm to see how Dutch cheese and clogs (wooden shoes) are made. This evening we head in to the heart of Amsterdam to see Dam Square, and we can even investigate the Red Light District itself!
Day 6: Amsterdam
A full free day to enjoy Amsterdam. Our included 'Totally Topdeck' bike ride is the perfect way to tour the city, just like the locals. We’ll also have time to wander the canals or visit attractions such as Anne Frank House, the Van Gogh Museum and the Heineken Experience. This evening we have an included dinner to look forward to, followed by an optional canal cruise on a private boat along Amsterdam’s waterways.
Day 7: London
We make our way to the Belgian city of Brugge this morning, where a walking tour with our Topdeck Trip Leader takes in the city’s excellent Gothic architecture. We’ll have free time here to seek out some Belgian specialities – chocolate, waffles and beer! Afterwards we drive to Calais in France to catch our ferry across the English Channel. Our Topdeck trip finishes upon arrival in London this evening, when it will be time to say fond farewells to our Topdeck Crew and travelling companions.
