Experience Your World
As authors and publishers of independent travel guides, Avalon believes travel is perhaps the most valuable means by which we learn about the world and our place in it.
One of America’s best-loved travel icons, Rick Steves brings decades of exploring the cities, towns, waterways and countrysides of Europe to travelers eager to experience the old world. His mission to make European travel fun, affordable, and culturally broadening for Americans is realized in his best-selling travel guides and a series of helpful maps, phrasebooks, and DVDs.
Everyone approaches the world in a different way. Moon knows this, and with its distinct guidebook series—Handbooks, Living Abroad, Outdoors, Spotlights, and MapGuides—travelers and adventure-seekers will find the guide that matches their individual style. Explore a new place, get lost in a great city, head out on a scenic trail, run away from home—there’s a Moon guide for you.
Meet Andy Steves’ Europe. Drawing on a young lifetime’s worth of travel experience gained alongside his travel-expert father Rick Steves, Andy Steves now helps students, backpackers, and other young travelers experience the best of Europe on a budget. Inspired by the tours he leads via his own student tour company, Andy’s 3-day itineraries to 12 of Europe’s top cities are essential planning for both long weekends and study-abroad adventures.
