It’s not the same as having the actual physical catalog but available for download in PDF format.
I know. I like drinking a glass of wine and looking it over
But I like sitting back in my chair, perusing the catalogue flipping from page to page, turning down a corner here and there...
I totally agree. There's nothing like holding that catalog in your hand. I keep it out all year and pick it up to peruse it time and again with a cup of coffee. I find it easier to compare the different tours when they are in hand and very difficult to resist signing up.
Pat, our catalogs live in a basket beside my chair. I couldn't count the number of times in a year that I pick the most recent one up to dream, or verify something, or just enjoy it. And yes, we keep old ones as well, although a few years ago I did purge them... and regretted it later.
So much of our lives have gone virtual, I hardly notice anymore.
I do love looking at the photos and dreaming. I'm pretty sure I can do that with a PDF.
I'm fine with the online version, didn't really want the printed version, but you could always print it at home, or even have it printed and bound at a printer.
For what it's worth, assuming things get back to normal next year, we expect to have a printed catalog for the 2022 tour year. Thanks for bearing with us as we navigate a tough year.
Can't wait to visit Paris again. Bonjour!
Jane, I feel your pain. I did the same.
Thanks Webmaster! (For all you do...)
I love having a tour catalogue in my hand as well, but this year has cost Rick Steves Tours so much money that I am happy to let him/them save a little money by not printing and mailing a physical catalogue.
And I still have last year's should the need arise...
