My Way: A New Kind of Tour
|Our newest Europe tour lets you design each sightseeing day to fit your own interests and energy level.|
Save $1,000, enjoy more freedom on this "un-guided" tour
Wish you could enjoy the freedom of independent travel, but with someone else handling all the hotel and transportation headaches for you?
We've created a new, "un-guided" travel experience that delivers the best of both worlds.
My Way: Europe in 14 Days gives you the freedom to decide your own daily sightseeing priorities and pace. We cut the stress by providing comfortable rooms in centrally-located hotels, private bus transportation from city to city, and a trip escort to help advise you along the way.
Maybe best of all, "My Way: Europe in 14 Days" costs $1,000 less than Rick Steves' fully-guided Best of Europe in 14 Days tour, yet follows essentially the same star-studded route ("My Way" visits Italy's Riviera/Cinque Terre instead of Tuscany/Florence).
In two free-spirited, low-stress weeks, you'll enjoy a colorful mix of must-see cultural capitals (Paris, Munich, Venice, and Rome) plus stroll-around charms in the heart of the Swiss Alps, French wine country, and Italy's remarkable Cinque Terre villages.
In control of your daily destiny, you can be awe-struck by Mona in the Louvre and the Pietà in Rome. But you'll also have plenty of chances to experience Europe "through the back door"...sipping Burgundian wine in a centuries-old cellar, time-tripping through Roman and Venetian alleyways, and hiking a cliff-top Riviera trail from village to vineyard.
To equip you for your free-spirited adventure, you'll have Rick's Best of Europe guidebook and his "Audio Europe" app (or choose MP3/podcasts) packed with walking tours and radio interviews covering the places you'll be visiting.
On travel days, you'll share a comfortable, private bus with no more than 28 travelers, giving you plenty of room to stretch out and relax. Your well-traveled escort will be there to answer your questions, give a brief orientation to each new destination, and handle all hotel and travel schedule arrangements. And to help keep you well-rested for each day's excitement, every stop but one is for two consecutive nights.
"My Way" lets you experience the Best of Europe...your way!
