Video: Tour Guides Talk Even More When They’re Tipsy

I spend a lot of time with guides, and when someone is born to be a guide, it’s clear: They just can’t stop teaching and marveling at what’s all around. Jump in the taxi with me and Vincenzo (from Mondo Guide) for the tour-guiding finale of our day. I spent an entire day with Vincenzo, and it was non-stop, just like you see here: exhausting, funny, fascinating, and energizing all at the same time. Imagine getting excited about an Aragonese king from 1400, and talking about his relatives like they’re yours. Incredibile.

This is Day 20 of my “100 Days in Europe” series. As I travel with Rick Steves’ Europe Tours, research my guidebooks, and make new TV shows, I’m reporting on my experiences in Italy, Portugal, France, Ireland, England, Scotland, Germany, Switzerland, and more. Thanks for joining me here on my blog and via Facebook.
