I am signed up for the April 9th trip and will be coming from the Bay area in California. Anyone else from my area? This will be my first RS trip and am really looking forward to it.

My traveling companion and I are signed up for the March 5th, 2016 trip. We've not been to the Southwest and are eagerly anticipating our trip. This will be my 4th RS trip and they have all been great. We are coming from Utah. Anyone else coming from our area?

I now live in Ct but lived in MD for over 18 years. I am going on the same NM trip as you are. Please contact me if you want to communicate further.

Anyone signed up for the Oct. 11-18 trip? Anyone from Maryland?
Ilene Zapol Aug 28, 2015 at 08:38 AM

I'm from Delaware, so that's right next door

The hotel in Albuquerque (MCM Elegante) has some very bad reviews online - poor maintenance, bedbugs, filthy rooms. I'm kind of upset about this. Can anyone tell me about their experiences at this hotel?

We stayed there with RS in May. Rooms were comfortable and clean. No one in the group mentioned any problems with their rooms. The food was very good.

When we were there in March, the hotel was undergoing renovation. We weren’t happy with the management which didn’t seem to be prepared for our group, but the rooms were all clean and comfortable. We’ll be staying there again on our next R.S. tour and have no qualms about it.

Anyone out there signed up for.for the Aug.30 2015 trip? My bags are getting packed! See you soon!

We're taking the Northern New Mexico trip July 26 - Aug. 2.
Any suggestions that would help our trip go smoothly?

I took this trip in May. This was my first trip with roadscholars and it was great. The tour guide and bus diriver were great. The trip went smoothly.

It will be dry but quite warm in late July.
Floyd & Laura Newsom Jun 13, 2015 at 03:45 PM

My wife and I took the tour in April; at least you won't have to be prepared for snow. I'm sure you'll have a great time.

Floyd & Laura Newsom Apr 06, 2015 at 08:40 PM

My wife, Laura, and I are taking our first Road Scholar tour next week. Does any "experienced" traveler have any suggestions?

Road Scholar gives you the opportunity to learn about many interesting topics and meet people who are well educated, friendly and avid students. Some sites are great, some not so great I have a motto....Be flexible and you won't get bent out of shape!
