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. Many tracks provide general cultural and sightseeing information gleaned from his public radio program, Travel with Rick Steves. Other tracks are self-guided tours to great sights and historic walks. While we travel there’s lots of down time, and this application can both entertain and teach. Rick Steves Audio Europe will hopefully make your European travels more meaningful and more fun.
• The app downloads and stores audio files on your device. No Wi-Fi or cellphone connection is required to listen. (You will need a connection if you choose to add audio tracks later.)
• 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.
• Rick Steves Audio Europe is a work in progress. New audio tracks will be added and existing tracks updated as necessary. Be sure to enable Notifications for this app to get the latest updates.
A few minor bug fixes.
Ratings and Reviews
This is an amazing app to have if you are going around many of the popular areas of europe! Rick gives you great walking tours that are easy to follow and show you so much history and places that you wouldnt of found on your own. Plus its free!!
We have always found Rick's guidebooks to be tremendously helpful and tried using the podcasts on Europe from him via iTunes when we went to Italy. Whereas I enjoy reading the paper format guidebooks the podcasts were truly great! As we walked through places such as the Forum and the Colosseum, we just put our earphones on and off we went. It was as if Rick was with us! Now that the podcasts have been put together into an App it makes it even more convenient to obtain the guides. Thank you for doing this Rick and team! You make travels to Europe easy and enjoyable.
What a great idea for an app - Rick Steves program is super high quality and well produced. Expect nothing less from this app.
