Yes, as long as it's safe to do so. We've lined up a full slate of Europe tours for 2022, and they're available to book now

Will you be running tours in 2022?

For tours departing in 2022, deposits  are 100% refundable for up to 120 days before the tour departure date or unless otherwise noted in our Tour conditions

What is your cancellation policy?

Yes, we require proof of COVID-19 vaccination including booster dose to participate in any Rick Steves tour. Europeans expect everyone (especially visitors) to be fully vaccinated in order to participate in society — including many of the experiences that we promise on our tours.

Will I need a  Covid 19 vaccine to join a tour?

No, we can't provide any exceptions to our requirement that all tour members must be able to show a COVID-19 vaccination certificate. Due to Europe's restrictions on entry into various sights, restaurants, and other venues for unvaccinated people, we're not able to provide the experiences we promise to travellers if they're not vaccinated

If I have a medical/religious exemption for the COVID-19 vaccine, can I join a tour?

This would be considered a medical exemption and we're not able to provide medical exceptions for any reason at this time. Please see above.

If I have documentation showing I've already had COVID-19, can I join a tour?

Yes, due to the Omicron variant we're currently requiring a negative COVID-19 viral test (PCR or antigen) taken within 48 hours of the first day of your tour. Because COVID is constantly changing, we'll notify our tour members by email about specific testing requirements two months prior to a tour's departure. Your airline and/or the countries you're visiting may also require proof of a negative COVID-19 test for entry

Will I need a negative COVID-19 test prior to joining a tour?

This varies by country, but many require that you remain in the country under quarantine, typically at your own expense, for a specified time.

What happens if I test positive before returning home from a tour?

We expect tour members to monitor their health and only travel if they're feeling well. However, getting sick while on tour can happen to anyone — and it can affect not just your trip, but your fellow tour members' trip, too. If you start to feel sick during your tour, notify your guide right away, so they can direct you to a local clinic or pharmacy for diagnosis and treatment. If anyone has a confirmed case of COVID-19, we'll follow the requirements of the local health authorities. It's likely you'll need to stay in the country where you test positive, under quarantine for a specified amount of time. Rick Steves' Europe and Travel Guard Assistance will provide you support with managing your quarantine requirements, but you’re responsible for the associated costs ;

Currently, the US  and many other countries require arriving international passengers (including US citizens) to show a negative COVID-19 test result, taken within one day of your flight. You'll also need to sign an "attestation" that you have tested negative. Rules are constantly changing but there seems to be more clarity with this and it is always advisable to check with your own government travel advice prior to returning home. We would advise this at least 4 days prior to the end of your trip.
