An Irreverent History of Rick Steves

Enjoy Rick's live Monday Night Travel party with this video recorded on April 26, 2021. Experience the fun, conviviality, intimacy, and spontaneity of joining Rick in his living room as he shares his personal, inspirational, and sometimes hilarious behind-the-scenes commentary.

Join Rick for a special edition of Monday Night Travel as he shares a candid look at how he turned a love of travel into a thriving business that grew from one backpacker with a self-published book called Europe Through the Back Door to a tour company that takes 30,000 people a year to Europe. Reminiscing about his "Europe Through the Gutter" days, Rick will share revealing photos, embarrassing bloopers, and lessons he and his guides have learned from years of celebrating the wonders of Europe.
