I think you could contact RS and ask who the guide will be. Some of the guides have a schedule for the year and they might be able to tell you.

Also, how will we know which guide will be on a particular tour, say the May departures?
Eileen Mandell Dec 01, 2015 at 11:25 PM

We didn't know who our guide was until a couple of days prior to the tour.

Bob Harmon Dec 01, 2015 at 10:43 PM

Question regarding luggage: Do you check bags on the ferries? Or do you need to keep them with you under way?
Eileen Mandell Dec 01, 2015 at 11:23 PM

We each had to carry luggage into and out of the ferry. The guide led us into the back of the ferry storage area, and took us to the designated area for our luggage. When we arrived at the island, we all went down and got our luggage and followed the guide off the ferry to the waiting bus.
Gerry Chrisman Dec 04, 2015 at 01:22 AM

On larger ferries,you can usually wheel them on and off. On smaller (faster) ferry, you can wheel part way, we got help from crew member to lift them up onto pile on rear deck area. Have fun! An excellent trip!
Eileen Mandell Dec 04, 2015 at 01:25 AM

We didn't get any assistance from crew. We had to wheel luggage on and off ourselves, and we had to place our luggage against the wall or on the cart, depending on the ferry.
Eileen Mandell Dec 04, 2015 at 01:26 AM

And, in the RS description, it does say that we have to put luggage on and off the ferries on our own.

Another question re: euros: does anyone know the limit on how much we can bring in to Greece? How about American dollars? Thanks, Sharon

Robert Wenrick Sep 05, 2015 at 01:42 PM

We arrive a day early on 9/9 at 6:35pm. Anybody else about that time to share a taxi to the hotel? Bob and Peggy

Sharon M Aug 29, 2015 at 06:45 PM

A friend and I are on the Sept 23 to Oct 7 trip, leaving from Denver. Anyone else on that one? Are you taking euros or dollars? We can get euros here but would like to know if dollars would be better. Thanks, Sharon (and friend Peggy)
Eileen Mandell Aug 30, 2015 at 03:38 PM

Hi Sharon, My husband and I are on the Sept 23rd trip, coming from San Diego. Friends who returned recently said euros, so we are changing dollars into euros.
Eileen Mandell Sep 16, 2015 at 01:35 PM

Hi Sharon, We are bring a couple of hundred dollars and changing them at an airport ATM. Any other Euros we need we'll use a debit card at ATMs. See you on the 24th!

I need information on what kind of adapter plug I need to charge my iPad. I bought a Travelon Dual USB charger and adapter, but I'm not sure if that is enough to use with a high voltage? I am on the Sept 4-18 trip.
Eileen Mandell Aug 19, 2015 at 04:37 PM

When I checked on Amazon, I was told that along with the adapter you will also need the converter, to convert Euro 220 to US 110. When I requested info from Road Scholar, they said the info would be in the final packet they were sending out, but I'm in a later trip and haven't received the packet yet.
Linda L. Hildebrand Aug 19, 2015 at 05:00 PM

I think the iPad is dual voltage so all you'll need is it's charging cable and a type b (two round prongs) adaptor plug that's used in southern europe.
Gerry Chrisman Aug 19, 2015 at 09:56 PM

I agree with Linda. We took this trip in May, only needed the regular plug-in inserted into simplr
Gerry Chrisman Aug 19, 2015 at 10:02 PM

(Continuation) simple adaptor -- not converter -- that had the standard Europe two round plugs at other side. Should work for phones and IPad. We took small power stri, plugged it into adapter plug. Could then plug in several devices. If you have another adapter, you can plug another device second wall socket
Gerry Chrisman Aug 19, 2015 at 10:13 PM

Eileen, you asked earlier in year about walking, climbing without railings. We took walking sticks, I used just one to help with climbing, especially Acropolis and some archeological sites, eg, Akrotiri on Santsorini and some on Crete, also Delos. Light Black Diamond sticks excellent, fold to about a foot and carried in backpack. First full day in Athens the most strenuous. We enjoyed the food , especially lots of appetizers (memes) to sample
Eileen Mandell Aug 30, 2015 at 03:35 PM

Thanks Gerry! This was very helpful.
