If you traveled with us on a tour in 2014, you're invited to our annual Tour Reunion on Friday, January 16, and Saturday, January 17, in Edmonds, WA.
Rick's Italy Fest & Welcome Reception
Friday, January 16, 6:00–10:00 pm
Join Rick and his Italy guides for a special Friday night welcome reception at the Edmonds Center for the Arts — celebrate the wonders of Italy with Italian wine, food, and slideshows of Rick's favorite Italian places and things (6:30 pm Italy's Urban Delights; 7:30 pm Italy's Village Wonders; 8:30 pm Italian Food & Art). Alums from all our 2014 tours are invited to this fun, free event — space is limited so sign up before it fills up!
Tour Reunion Parties
Friday, January 16, 1:00–6:30 pm and Saturday, January 17, 8:30 am–8:00 pm
Join Rick, your guides and tour buddies for two days of reunion parties and flat out fun! You'll have plenty of time to reconnect with your tour buddies over scrapbooks, snacks, and drinks. It's all free and fun — but space is limited and registration is required.
Share Something Yummy!
If your last name begins with A–C: fruits; D–F: veggies; G–K: cheeses; L–O: meats; P–R: crackers, breads, chips; S–T: cupcakes, cookies, chocolates; U–Z: juices, sodas.
We will provide coffee, tea, and water.
(Sorry, we are not able to serve alcohol at the reunion parties and health regulations prohibit us from accepting homemade dishes. Only commercially prepared food is allowed. Please bring your item on a disposable dish rather than your favorite family heirloom so you won't have to worry about bringing it back home! Several supermarkets with delis are nearby — PCC Natural Market, QFC, and IGA Market are local favorites.)
Test Drive a Tour Guide™!
Saturday, January 17, 8:45 am–9:00 pm
On Saturday, you'll have the opportunity to learn more about our 2015 tour destinations at the day's "Test Drive a Tour Guide" slideshow presentations. Plus Rick will be presenting his "Irreverent History of Rick Steves Tours" on Saturday evening. (Registration required.)
Stop By the Tour Cantina!
Saturday, January 17, 10:00 am–5:00 pm
Our guides and tour staff will be available in the Tour Cantina to answer all of your questions about our 2015 tours. So drop in at the Edmonds Conference Center Rhododendron room for a little conversation and free refreshments. (No registration required.)
Make It a Weekend!
Just 14 miles north of downtown Seattle, the cute, walkable town of Edmonds is a great place for a weekend stay.
