Rick Steves' Free-Spirited "My Way" Tours

Five ways to tour Europe — your way

If you want to enjoy the freedom (and savings) of independent travel — but let someone else handle all the hotel and transportation headaches — Rick Steves has created an "un-guided" travel experience that delivers the best of both worlds.

On a Rick Steves My Way® tour, we give you an unbeatable itinerary with private bus transportation from city to city, comfortable rooms in centrally-located hotels, and a trip escort to help advise you along the way.

Unlike our fully-guided tours, on a My Way tour you're free to spend your sightseeing time however you wish.

Freedom: The unstructured My Way days appeal to a diverse mix of travelers: (1) energetic types who want to pack-in more than a guided tour; (2) families who want to focus on kid-friendly activities — and have the flexibility to deal with the ups and downs of kids on vacation; (3) less-energetic travelers who value the freedom to linger in cafes and take siestas as they wish; (4) and independent types who simply want to dine and sightsee away from a group.

Peace of mind: The provided bus, escort and hotels appeal to people who want to avoid the logistical hassles of managing a trip.

Savings: The low My Way tour price (as much as $2,000 less than a fully-guided version) appeals to travelers on a budget who want to pick and choose their splurges.

Smiles: Many My Way tour members enjoy the chance to chat with one another during breakfasts and bus rides.

Whether you want to take things a little slower than you could on a guided tour, or be more adventurous, My Way lets you experience Europe — your way!
