Just spoke with Route Adventures and was told that a group leader (Brian)has been hired for the program. Looking forward to this trip!

I took this trip. It was great but buyer beware. The professional guide for this trip has left and there has not been a replacement made to fill his position.

Will be arriving from Chicago--my fourth Road Scholar trip!

Tim and Sally Long will be joining the program arriving from Atlanta a bit late the first day. Looking for cooler weather and great hikes.

I'm joining the group...my first Road Scholar trip, but second time to NFLD. I'm from Ontario, Canada.

My husband Larry and I will be flying from Kansas City. Hiking while overlooking the ocean appealed to us. We've appreciated the expertise of instructors and staffs in past Road Scholar trips to the southwest and the Great Lakes area. We're looking forward to learning more about coastal life.

My wife Kim and I will be flying from San Francisco--this is our first Road Scholar trip, although my parents participated in several trips over the years and were quite satisfied. We look forward to some great hiking and learning about Newfoundland. Kim's grandmother was born in Newfoundland so this is an area she has always wanted to visit.

Two daughters, Kim and Michelle, are joining me. We will be flying from California. Because of flight schedules we will arrive in St Johns a day early and leave there a day later. I hope to learn more about the hikes than what is written in the "program details". I've done a number of RoadScholar trips and been very satisfied. Where will you be coming from?
