Hi I'm Leigh. This is my first trip to Europe, and I loved sharing this journey with my mom. During the school year, I provide speech therapy to students but in my free time I enjoy my family and our two schnauzers. 

Hi I'm Donna. I am a retired teacher but currently work for the state education agency. This is my second Rick Steves trip. After my granddaughters and I took the Heart of Italy tour in 2022, I was hooked! Traveling with Leigh made this trip extra special.

The Best of Both Worlds

With a Rick Steves My Way® tour, you get the flexibility and freedom to do things "your way" while Rick does all the hard work.  By providing a tour manager, transportation between each destination, hotels, and breakfast each morning all that is left for you to do is have fun!


Lauterbrunnen Valley, Switzerland

“Traveling – it leaves you speechless, then turns you into a storyteller.”
