Curiosity compels these questions to those who have taken Rick Steves tours: What was your favorite? How would you rank the tours you took?
I certainly do not wish to exclude the opinion of anyone who has taken only one RS tour, and had an exceptionally good or surprisingly disappointing experience. The tours generally seem to get great reviews. But I am wondering whether there were any particular tours that get especially high marks (my sense is that the Villages of Italy ranks high) and whether there were any that, even if very good, did not rank as highly in your experience as others.
A final note is that the RS tours that focus on the smaller or the less traveled venues seem to offer especially good value because of the transportation issues with traveling from one village or smaller city to another. As an aside, one that I have been considering is the Eastern France tour.
Thanks in advance for any opinions you would like to share.
