Daily Rick Steve Tours

I know there are Rick Steve Tours that you can buy for a week or more... I was wondering if there are Rick Steve tours that I can buy/take part in while in the country that Im traveling to?
For example, I am traveling to Paris, Amsterdam, Venice, Florence, and Rome. While in each of these, are there Rick Steve tours that I can buy to tour specific areas of these areas that are just for the day (1-4/5 hours per tour)?

Hope im explaining myself right?

No.

All the tours have a define beginning and end point and range from a week to 3 weeks in length. People are not allowed to join and leave as they want.

You can use the guide books and audio guides to plan your own RS type of tour on your own for a single day or so.

Also, you can book day tours with entities other than RS. There's a whole section on this forum, under Tips and Trip Reports, in which people discuss day tours. You can also search online for 'day tours ______(location)' and get lots of info. For Italy, I've read particularly good things about Walks of Italy and Tours by Roberto.

Ricks' guidebooks list tour companies for each city they cover. Book a day tour for those cities you are interested in touring.

In Paris, look at the Paris Walks website for ideas of walking tours you can join. They usually last 2-3 hours and cost 15 euros. Except for a few special tours, which cost more and you need to reserve in advance, you usually just show up at the designated meeting spot and time.

You can check the RS guide books for recommended guides, either for private or group day tours. All the guides on the RS tours have been very informative.

A friend recently went to Italy and booked several "Italy Walks" day tours. The company advertises as the choice of RS for Italy. Most of the local tour guides with favorable reviews work for RS tours.
