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.

Private Tours for FREE!


Not one to usually write a review for an app, but had to for this one. Used it just about a month ago for a trip to Rome and Paris with my husband. Wow! We felt like we were on a private tour without having to pay for one! And Rick's radio episodes were also very helpful to understand the culture and find hidden treasures sightseeing. Also own guidebooks by Rick Steves that went oh so well with this app. I only wish something like this was done for other parts of the world, including US.
Tip: get good wire-free headphones to use between you and your better half - you'll really feel like you are on a private tour!

A must download!!!


This audio guide has saved us so much time, research, and money. We are currently on a cruise and not only did these audio guides save us at least $50 pp so far, but it's the ease of use and Rick's insights that have truly enhanced our vacation. I highly recommend this app and will be using it in my future travels without question.

Great app, does the work decently


I'm traveling Europe right now and I have to say, this app is giving me a great time. It provides basic history and information about all the main sites in a city in just about the right pace. I am enjoying this app so far and it is totally worth downloading for any traveler. Remember, it's free!
