Team “Rick Steves’ Europe” Tour Guides: Ready to Play Ball in 2013!

With our hometown Seattle Seahawks in the playoffs last weekend, we were in a sporty frame of mind. So I thought I’d introduce, football team-style, our newest guides. Last year was our best year of touring yet, with over 12,000 travelers enjoying over 400 of our tours. And our tours are selling far faster for 2013. While we need to have enough top-notch guides to meet that demand, we will never schedule a tour if we don’t have a guide that meets our standards. Compromising the quality of our tours by using guides or hotels we are not enthusiastic about is simply not an option. We just spent the better part of a week training our newest guides. They’ve apprenticed with our most experienced guides as assistant guides on tour in Europe. And they are ready to lead. I had so much fun getting to know these wonderful guides, and I’d like you to meet them too.

And so: Presenting our tour guiding class of 2013…
