Streaming for Travel Dreaming

This Saturday, my Rick Steves Facebook page will host a live, all-day webcast – eight “Test Drive a Tour Guide” presentations on Europe’s best destinations as they’re covered by the itineraries in my tour program.

Visit my Facebook page between 9 a.m. and 9 p.m. Pacific Time, Saturday, January 12th and click on the “Live Festival” tab. Our lineup includes: 9:00 a.m. Italy, 10:30 a.m. Eastern Europe, 11:45 a.m. Spain, 1:00 p.m. Germany-Austria-Switzerland, 2:15 p.m. Turkey, 3:30 p.m. France, 5:30 p.m. Venice-Florence-Rome, and 7:30 p.m. my “Irreverent History of Europe Through the Back Door”.

For mobile users, the webcast is also available on my website and YouTube channel.

What prompts all this travel talk? My annual tour guides summit, which has brought dozens of European travel experts into town. They’ll be helping me with these presentations, and rubbing elbows with hundreds of tour alums at our big Tour Member Reunion Party, taking place on the same day.

If you live in the Seattle-area and would like to attend the day’s classes in person — it’s free — sign up at our Test Drive a Tour Guide page at
