The Rick Steves Tour Experience
Take a shiny new test drive of a Rick Steves tour!
Last summer — on an actual Best of Europe tour — we filmed an all-new edition of our Tour Experience DVD.
Watching this is the best way to see if the Rick Steves style of touring is right for you.
Using the links below, you can get a sneak peek of the full 45-minute video by watching a few of the chapters. You'll get to know real tour members and tour guides as they experience the day-to-day events of their tour, and share their candid comments.
No actors. No script. Honest. Come ride along!
Watch the full 45-minute video or shorter chapter clips below.
Video: Great Tour Guides
Our guides focus on bringing you the best of Europe and a great travel experience.
Video: Small Groups
A small group feels like a family, and we sightsee and dine where larger groups can only dream.

Video: Comfy and Quaint Hotels
You'll travel as a "temporary European," staying in smaller hotels in the historic heart of each city.
(2 min 33 sec)
Video: Memorable Meals
Local meals are an important way to experience a culture, so we include the best.
(3 min 20 sec)
Getting from one place to another is relaxing, with plenty of room to spread out.
Art and history — not shopping — are an important focus of every Rick Steves tour.
The happiest tour members are the ones who've prepared for lots of walking.
