Rookie Nomads on the Move

I’ve always imagined my honeymoon would be on a secluded island, with just the sound of the waves serenading us & of course, doing what newlyweds do, ssh!  Well, that was the initial idea.  However, an opportunity to try a Topdeck tour came along, yay!

Now, future hubs & I have not been on our Winter Wonder Tour as of yet (19 days to go), but the level of service we’ve received by far has exceeded our expectations.

Fiancé person & I have never travelled overseas together.  So, to make this experience as stress-free as possible having the agent booking our tour ‘baby’ us from day one has been our saving grace!

  • Book your flights sooner than later, with the Rand / Dollar exchange rate fluctuating as much as it is right now, go with your gut & just make the booking!
  • Lastly, because the Winter Wonder Tour is one of the best tours to complete your European bucket list, book it as soon as possible, as it does sell out quite fast. #WalalaWasala

The Winter Wonder Tour covers 8 countries: France, Switzerland, Italy, Vatican City, Austria, Germany, Netherlands, Belgium

Only 19 days to go, CANNOT WAIT!
