ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

Road Scholar "Kamila" told me on Sept. 19 that our 7 Oct. trip has 14 participants.

how many people on the oct 18 trip?barb
Robert Yoshioka Sep 19, 2014 at 06:45 PM

If you want to know how many people will be joining you on your Oct 18 start date tour, you have to call Road Scholar and practically badger then to release that information, as they have a "new policy" regarding making such disclosures...sure doesn't make any sense to me, and I had to practically threaten to pull out before they broke down (and in a PRIVATE email to me) they broke their own rule and just blurted out our (October 7 startdate) number: 14 as of three weeks or so ago. Understand that "protecting" us from knowing the NUMBER of other participants makes absolutely no sense whatsoever...but what the heck...I worked in the business for years, and the best way to get people to be comfortable is to tell them how many AND also share names of other participants, but then again, I believe in full disclosure. So, if you call Road Scholar and just be determined and not let them "explain away" their reasoning...just keep saying..."Just tell me how many people will be joining me on this trip," they will relent. If enough tour participants ask, then maybe they will change their silly policy, or not. Whatever. Good luck...too bad you are going on the October 18 trip. you sound like someone who would be fun to travel with. At any rate...have a blast. Best, RBYoshioka

We're using Travelex services for yuan to have in hand so as to avoid the dash for an ATM first thing in Beijing.

Laurie Stephenson Sep 18, 2014 at 05:37 PM

I got Yuan from AAA the next day!
Robert Yoshioka Sep 18, 2014 at 07:39 PM

Lucky you! Our local AAA DOES NOT carry Yuan Currency Packs. Go figure...we must be at the end of the western world or something...We checked with Wells Fargo, and they will deal with anyone anywhere, with no fees or no charges for shipping packets. This whole experience has been very interesting. Back in the day, it was travelers checks that got one through foreign it is ATM's and credit cards!
