We went last year and arrived 2 days early. The Syndey Harbor Bride climb was great. My grandson loved Pancakes on the Rocks which was not far from the hotel.

Hi there, my grandson, Dustin, chose this upcoming trip last Fall as his place to travel. Now that it's on the horizon, we are both getting excited. He is just graduating from 8th grade, and is 13.

We live in the Bay Area near San Francisco.

We'll be in Emeryville and Mill Valley 6/1-6/2. Perhaps we could meet. Marilyn Townsend rfobbs@msn.com

Hello, I have signed up for the trip with my grandson Max who is turning 12 in May. We live in Los Angeles and have been on trips together to Wash.D.C. and Mt. Rushmore. I would be pleased to connect with others on this trip. Marilyn Townsend @Rfobbs@msn.com.

I thought it was the best of the four Intergenerational trips I have taken with my granddaughter (she might disagree - she really liked Costa Rica!). Great leaders and program, beautiful places and a nice, companionable group of adults and almost teens (age range in our group was 11-13, with two girls and four boys).

Sara Bailey Nov 13, 2012 at 04:40 PM

For those who took this trip in 2012: Please let me know how you liked it--I am registered for this trip in 2013 with my granddaughter.
Paul Heslin Nov 13, 2012 at 04:45 PM

We enjoyed really the trip! We arrived a few days early and explored Sydney climbed the bridge email if you want details paulheslin@ optonline.net

Paul Heslin Apr 25, 2012 at 04:12 PM

We are also going on this intergenerational program. We can be reached at paulheslin@optonline.net

My granddaughter, who will be 12 when we travel, and I have just registered for this program in 2012. This will be her fourth Intergenerational program (previous Costa Rica, Germany, and Tadoussac, Canada) and we'd love to "meet" other program participants before our departure.
