The Rick Steves Travel philosophy (called the "back door" travel philosophy) is for people who prefer packing light, who like small "mom and pop" hotels, and enjoy getting to know the local culture and people... Is that the type of travel you prefer?

Hi....I hope to meet others who enjoy the Rick Steves tours, to share travel memories and find buddies for coming trips! I am 63 but I welcome members of all ages! Have been on three RS tours and loved their philosophy.

What Grace C. is saying about this Meetup Group

I have learned so many interesting travel ideas and tips from people who have attended this Meetup. The Meetup is not affiliated with the Rick Steves organization (though that organization has give me their okay to have a Meetup with their name on it), rather it is for people who are fans of the way of travel (low frills, interest in the culture as well as the sightseeing) which is featured in the Rick Steves TV shows and travel guides.
