RS Poland Tour?

FYI, contributor Deb K mentioned in the thread about RS 2020 tours that Rick Steves said, in a recent podcast, that they are working on a Poland tour. He says 10-12 days. No mention of when it will be available, or whether they will be doing a Poland guidebook to go along with it as well. Anybody have any insight, please step up.

This is good news for some of us, and I wonder if the number of times it has come up on tour wishlist discussions here on the forum may have contributed.

During the RS Travel Expo and Tour Guide Test Drive in Edmonds, Washington this past January, several conversations popped up at our table concerning "What's Next". A Poland tour was high on the anticipation list,
although, at that time, I knew of no serious conversations on that topic in the RS ranks. However, I think Cameron Hewitt may be leading that charge. I'm hoping it comes to be - with more offerings in true "Eastern Europe" (Romania, Ukraine, Moldova, Albania etc.) .

The tour is not planned for 2020, but likely 2021. To keep it to a popular length, the route does not happen to visit places not already in the books - either the Eastern Europe or the Poland Snapshot versions, both new editions out now. A new Poland book won't necessarily happen, or not on the same timeline.
