Europe Invades the Taki Tiki

When my tour guides fly to my hometown of Edmonds for a week of working together, I enjoy taking them out to a local bar. Twenty years ago, we’d all fit in one booth. Today, with close to 100 guides, we take over an entire tavern. In this video, I’m welcoming our tour-guiding gang to A Very Taki Tiki Bar & Grill for a night of fun before a day of meetings. Cheers, santé, salud, prost, and skål!

My pride and passion is sharing the energy and talents of these guides with our tour members each year. Tomorrow — Saturday, January 18 — with our voices still a little hoarse, join our guides and me online from 9 a.m. to 8:30 p.m. PST for the live streaming of Test Drive a Tour Guide — eight free, one-hour slideshows on Europe’s top tour destinations for 2014. Happy Travels!
