This app organizes the vast and varied library of Rick Steves’ audio content into geographic-specific playlists so that travelers can enjoy ready access to the information that relates specifically to their travel plans.

• Handy maps (PDF) that complement the self-guided audio tours can be viewed on your device.
• The audio content originates from Rick Steves guidebooks and the Travel with Rick Steves public radio program. Self-guided tours are excerpted from Rick Steves country and city guidebooks.

It’s a free private tour

We travelled to Rome and Vatican City, and visited all major tourist attractions including Pantheon, Colosseum, Roman Forum, Vatican Museum, Sistine Chapel, and St Marks Basilica. This app is like a private tour at no expense. We used it at all sites. For Vatican sites, we did not book in advance so had to take an in person group tour. 10 minutes into the tour, we ended up asking our tour guide that we would leave and do the tour ourselves as this tour is far more engaging. The tour guides you right from the entrance through the finish gates. The bonus is that you are not stuck with a tour group and have the flexibility to tour at your own pace with breaks especially if you have kids like us. As per the kids, this app brings every site to life. Thanks Rick!
Tip: share wireless earbuds with the family while touring to get a complete private tour experience

Love this app

My partner and I took a trip to Italy this past summer, and this guide was such an important part of our vacation. The guide had episodes for all of the major cities we visited, as well as particular ruins and sites within the cities. They never seemed too long, always giving just enough information, and allowed us to skip around however we pleased. The maps were also extremely helpful. My favorite were the walking tours around the city, easy to follow and doable. Some pieces were a tad outdated but otherwise we loved it. This audio guide not only saved us money, but also supplemented our trip perfectly. Highly recommend for anyone heading to Europe!!

Such a hyped app but not up to expectations

Probably should not complain for a free app, but some improvements are definitely needed to make it useful. I had such a great expectation, because everywhere I read on the internet, people says great things about the guide, esp that it is way better than the one cost 8 euro at pompei park entrance. Even that is debatable, since I did get the official audio guide for a family member, they both have plus and minus’s.

We decided to use the pompei guide from this app after a few mixed experiences with a few Roman tours. The only usefulness of Rick’s pompei guide is the route, but it did not mention it anywhere in the app. Being frustrated with directions after 45 minutes, I started to play with the app, found the book shaped button, that leads me to the tour route. After that, it became a bit easier to follow.

The best audio guide I have used in the past is Gypsy. It is gps guided that made it so easy to use. I wish they have similar guides for European destinations.
