On the My Way Alpine Europe Tour I'm currently leading, my assistant, Trish Feaster, is sharing a few of her guiding tricks -- like her (now famous among our guides) "Tour Member DJ Party Party." During a particularly flat stretch of autobahn, volunteers from the group share their smartphones with their favorite tunes. Here, Dave -- who's the dad in a three-generation family of eight on our tour -- plays the family favorite from Aladdin. (Daughter Anna clearly loves this tune.) Notice how comfy our tour buses are -- 26 people sharing 54 seats; a high, smooth ride; a wonderful driver (Hilde); and great sound.

Trish also filmed and edited these clips. She's blogging about our tour at her website, The Travelphile.

This is Day 62 of my 100 Days in Europe series. As I lead tours, research my guidebooks, and make new TV shows, I'm reporting on my experiences and lessons learned in Vienna, the Alps, the Low Countries, England, and beyond. Find more right here on my travel blog.
