Tour Member Reviews: My Way℠ Rocks
|"We had not counted on this tour being so much fun! Members of our tour were of the same mindset — psyched on having a good time regardless of weather or any other inconvenience. We quickly made friends."|
Rick Steves' My Way℠ tours have been taking travelers (most of them non- "tour types") around Europe for a little over a year now. Here are some of their comments...
"We will definitely book another "My Way" tour in the future. For us it is the most flexible, and takes away all the stress of making hotel and ground transportation arrangements."
"Just wish it had been longer — because I enjoyed it so much."
"Overall, this was a wonderful trip and one that will long be remembered. Kudos go to you for superior organization and for choosing just the right destinations, the perfect hotels, and for your invaluable guidebooks and audio tours."
"My wife and I have never done an organized tour before. We have always just planned things out ourselves and have not been with a group. What drew us to your tour was your reputation and 'no whining' policy. We wanted to simplify the arrangement process (hotels and transportation) and be with a group with a positive outlook. We found this and more!"
"All the accommodations were excellent! The bus was great! Above all, our escort was fantastic — knowledgeable and went out of his way to accommodate needs of the members in the group. He was great at providing extra information and cultural tidbits. I could go on and on, but basically he was just WOW!"
"Having been on two previous Rick Steves Italy tours (Village Italy and Best of Italy), we found the lower My Way price, in combination with our own day planning, an ideal match for returning to favorite sites with minimal hassle."
"I loved the people on our tour! They came prepared to enjoy the trip, and positive comments flowed. Group members were kind and shared any travel tips they could with everyone. I could not have imagined a better group of people!"
"My Way is the perfect option for me and my family. I will definitely use Rick Steves' My Way tours again. More destinations, please!"
"The purpose of the trip was to introduce Europe to my 16-year-old daughter. So, the mix of big cities and small villages, history and scenery, mountains and coast, all made this itinerary ideal. I liked the discount that came with the My Way tour, as well as the opportunity to see the sites we wanted to visit that may not have been included in a fully-guided tour, such as Giverny (from Paris), Dachau (from Munich) and Ostia Antica (from Rome)."
"Great tour at a great price. I would recommend it highly!"
"The My Way tour format was ideally suited to me. The tour provided the hotels, bus transportation and escort so that I could concentrate on my tour activities at a pace that was comfortable for me. While my tour mates hiked up to Rheinfels Castle in St. Goar, I took the cute little tourist train. While my tour mates hiked around the Alps, I took the trams, trains, buses and boats. I didn't have to eat dinner at 8:00, and could turn in early to rest up for the next day's activities."
"We are already discussing which Rick Steves tour we were going on next! The 'Our Way' tours are perfect for us since we love to travel but love the independence of planning our own days. We would not consider any other tour. "
"We had not counted on this tour being so much fun! Members of our tour were of the same mindset — psyched on having a good time regardless of weather or any other inconvenience. We quickly made friends."
"This tour was my husband's first time out of the USA, and it was such a great experience that he is already talking about our next trip! I love to travel so I am so thankful!"
"What a great experience! Rick Steves' Europe does a fantastic job of maximizing 'bang for your buck' while traveling — and makes the adventure a stress-free trip. The cities and towns we visited were impressive (Vienna) to breath-taking (Lauterbrunnen). I would definitely recommend this to friends who are looking to travel to Europe in the future."
"While I love to travel, I also have anxieties about being in a foreign country (getting lost, communication, etc). Your tour so clearly explained what to expect and planned the hotels and transfers so efficiently that I didn't have to worry about any of those things. This gave me the peace of mind to relax and take in the beauty — without a thought or care about those things that usually generate anxiety. Thank you!"
"This tour is new for 2013. Sign up, go next year, and tell us what you think!"
