Skip the group tours, let Rick be your guide!

My wife and I used these through Rome’s famous place. Just pop the earbuds in and let Rick talk you through all of the awesome history you may have never known. He does a good job highlighting the most important elements of each location so you don’t get stuck for hours wondering it there’s more you should now. Best of all, it’s a FREE tour guide. You’ll be so glad you’re not one of those folks following around a locator stick, and can go at your own pace. Looking forward to exploring both Venice and Florence with this podcast. Thanks Rick!

Travel focus

Too preachy. Don’t want to hear about your political thoughts. Just want to know about travel on vacation or future retirement. You don’t want to hear me preach about my political feelings, hold on to yours please.
