A Rick Steves' Tour - The Best of the Adriatic
Tina, you were fabulous. Thank you for sharing your love for your home with us. Thank you for being fun, funny, hard-working, and patient. Thank you for teaching us so much about the countries we visited. And above all, thank you for sharing some of your personal experiences growing up in Yugoslavia and through the war.

KK & Little Man, thank you for letting me have another adventure with Gammy.

Craig, again this year , I owe you more thanks than anyone else. Thanks for encouraging me to go and for being Mr. Mom while I was away. Te quiero.
Rick Steves' ETBD, way to go! Another fabulous tour! Thank you. ... And a special thanks to those of you who had the vision for this new tour and who made it happen.
Mom, thank you for sharing this adventure with me. I love getting "you and me" time. I look forward to many more adventures in the future!
Renee, you were an incredible assistant guide. You wouldn't have the advantage of knowing the culture as a local, but you too could have lead guided this tour. Thank you for all you did to keep things running smoothly. You are so organized, so adventurous, and so fun. Thank you for sharing this experience with us. And kudos for discovering the route from Mostar to Dubrovnik. We loved it.
