2020 Tour Dates Available?

Hello, does anyone know if the tour dates are similar every year? I want to book a Prague and Budapest tour for the first one offered in May of 2020 and I'm wondering if it will start the first Sunday in May 2020 as it does in 2019. We will have a fixed time available the beginning of May 2020 and I would like to book asap in order to fit this in our vacation schedule.

Cathy, they usually have the full schedule out sometime in July. But I think, from my perusing things over the years, that yes, they pretty much stay on the same schedule.

Thank you! That’s what I’m hoping for.

Hi Cathy,
The other day I was thinking about what tour(s) I want to sign up for in 2020 and so I called the RS office and asked if any tours would be announced in May which happened last year. Yes, indeedy, I was told which tours would be rolled out for 2020. And, in July most all of them will be announced as happened last year.

Yippee!!

Hi Judy

(not to highjack the thread),

Just wondering if when you called the office, did they happen to mention if there are any new tour itineraries next year?

I am always hopeful for new ones to get excited about.

Gretchen, we were told there will be a new Tuscany tour next year.

I'm looking forward to the new 2020 tours, especially the details of the Tuscandy tour! Wonder if this will be a full 2-week deal or, more likely, a 7-9 day outing (perhaps a best-of collection of Village Italy with a couple extra stops)?

Is it just me, or are there a lot more current tours on sale right now than usual?

I was recently told that off-season tours and 2020 tours likely to sell out, will be posted within a couple weeks.

All the others will be up in July.

Justin, were you able to worm out any details on the Tuscany tour?

@Pam, unfortunately not. I hadn't asked or was told about Tuscany. Excited to hear about it though!

I hope the Tuscany tour doesn't pop up in May. We're going to be traveling then, and may not have the time do delve into it as much as we would like. We were more or less planning on Italy for 2020, though...

Neither the Tuscany nor the Andalucia is listed.

Looks like still just some of the early tours (up to June or so), not the full schedule.

Only one Andalusian tour is listed for October 2019 test run. It’s already full!
