The Rick Steves 2014 annual Tour Guide Summit is well under way. In the past four days, our guides have endured 10 hours of my lectures and workshops on how to lead a tour in the Rick Steves way. As was stressed all along, “Each of you is an excellent guide with your own style. We want to keep that and mesh it with what our travelers expect when they sign up on a Rick Steves tour. Because our travelers have high and unique expectations and we aim to exceed them with every trip.”
Tomorrow (Saturday), January 18, with voices still a little hoarse, join me and our guides 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!
