We are going a day earlier and staying at the hotel where we are to meet the next day. Irene and I were wondering if anyone from our group were doing the same. If you are, we may be able to meet and explore the city or have a couple of drinks together at a café. Let us know.
Ecousino, you may have better luck if you post this in the "Rick Steves Tours" section of the Forum. It's in the Tips and Trip Reports section.
This is a super tour; you're in for a great time.
Not on your trip.... I 2nd that of Jane!! It was a wonderful trip. Probably my best one next to 14 day Ireland. We went in April of 2016. Enjoy those Tulips!
