Tour guides to overrun Edmonds for annual summit

Jan 18, 2018

Rick Steves’ Europe is inviting the public to take part in its big "Test Drive a Tour Guide" event, the culmination of their annual tour guide summit taking place next week.

Public events will be held all day Saturday, Jan. 27. There will be 21 free classes on Europe’s top vacation destinations in three venues: Edmonds Theater, Edmonds Center for the Arts and North Sound Center.

The ECA classes also will be streamed nationally all day. Steves will finish Saturday evening with his "Irreverent History of Europe Through the Back Door" 7 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 27, at ECA.

The annual tour guide summit actually begins earlier when 150 European guides fly into town, filling up the Best Western Edmonds Harbor Inn for a week-long series of workshops, itinerary sessions, parties and public events.

“It’s always fun to see Edmonds overrun by our guides each January,” Steves said.
