Europe Through the Back Door, 1999 home page site map

In June and July, 1999, we went on a Rick Steves Europe Through the Back Door trip. We visited the Netherlands, Germany, Austria, Switzerland, Italy, and France in just over three weeks. It was a wonderful tour, and a terrific introduction to the continent. I want to go back!

I couldn't possibly recommend a tour company more highly. The trip was extremely well organized, our guides were terrific in every way, and we did an awful lot of traveling without feeling rushed.
