Linda L. Hildebrand Apr 27, 2015 at 04:35 PM

I'm on the Sept. 16th-30th trip. For those of you returning I'm curious about expenses for the meals on your own. My other RS trips have had almost all meals included. Anyone else leaving on the 16th?
William Schmidt May 31, 2015 at 02:59 PM

Hi Linda, my name is Bill Schmidt. I'll be on the Sept. 16th-30th trip also. From other RS trips where we bought some of our own meals, the expense wasn't that bad. It depends I guess where you eat. I'm looking foreward to this trip. It has been 43 years since I've been to Greece!

Barbara Gardner Apr 18, 2015 at 08:57 AM

My name is Barbara Gardner and my husband, Randy, and I will be going on the May 20 - June 2 trip. We are from Cincinnati. We're looking forward to meeting new friends and seeing new sites. This is my 3rd Road Scholar trip.
Marilyn Gramms Apr 18, 2015 at 08:24 PM

My name is Marilyn Gramms and my sister is Dorothy Moak. I am from Las Vegas and my sister is from San Diego. We are looking forward to this wonderful trip. This is my second R S trip and Dorothy's forth.
Anne Hay Apr 26, 2015 at 02:57 PM

We are Bob and Anne Hay, from Boise Idaho, and we are looking forward to the May 20 trip!
Barbara Gardner May 11, 2015 at 01:44 PM

Randy and I are looking forward to meeting you all in only 9 days! Does anyone know how many in our total group? We fly out of PHL on British Air and saw there is another couple flying out of Philly also but on another airline
Barbara Gardner May 11, 2015 at 01:45 PM

good luck to all on the jet lag Safe travels!
Nancy Parsons May 12, 2015 at 10:25 PM

My friend Marlene and I are joining the May 20 trip. We're from Nova Scotia, Canada. Looking forward to meeting everyone.

Barbara Mantel Apr 11, 2015 at 09:19 PM

My name is Barbara Mantel from Boston, Ma. I will be going on the May 27- June 1oth trip. I am very excited!!

I will be traveling alone and have a requested double room accommodations so am looking for a roommate.

Those of you that have taken this trip, do you have recommendations for good reading material in preparation?
Raymond Druen May 03, 2015 at 10:05 AM

If you consult with your program information packet, there is recommended reading within. I suggest that you go to The Great Courses website at www.thegreatcourses.com and order “The Great Tours: Greece and Turkey, from Athens to Istanbul”. Greek history of the Aegean Sea area is needed for this trip. Go to the same website and get”Ancient Greek Civilization. These are college level course that will allow you to fully understand what you are seeing and fully enjoy the expense. Ray
Raymond Druen May 06, 2015 at 07:50 AM

Barbra, I am leaving today for the island hopping trip. I will try to post you when I return.

Jasper Napoli Mar 12, 2015 at 04:45 PM

My name is Frank Napoli, from Vienna, VA. My wife and I are on the 23 Sep 2015 departure. In addition, we have booked a private car & driver for a 4 day, 3 night visit to the Peleponnese area, with overnights at Nafplio, Olympia, and Delphi, beginning on the morning of 7 Oct, when our tour concludes. We would enjoy sharing the vehicle & driver with another 2 people. If interested, Email me at: jaznapoli@cox.net.
Bill & Leah Brogdon Mar 21, 2015 at 01:51 PM

We are just down the road in Dumfries. If you come up with any questions after we return on May 20th, you can shoot us an email.
Raymond Druen Mar 30, 2015 at 04:59 PM

Bill & Leah -We will be on the same flight as you. If you have never been with our group leader, Eleni, you are in for a treat. She is the best. She speaks four languages and knows more about what you are going to see than our local guides. We picked this trip because of Eleni.
Bill & Leah Brogdon Apr 02, 2015 at 08:19 PM

Thanks. I know the group leader has drawn a lot of comments in the past. I'll look around for something with RoadScholar on it at the gate. Looking forward to it.
Raymond Druen Apr 08, 2015 at 09:23 AM

Are you on the flight to Zurich?
Bill & Leah Brogdon Apr 12, 2015 at 08:41 AM

No. When we put our deposit in they gave us a great flight and seats through Paris on Air France. After our final payment they they called and moved us to a flight to an Austrian Airways flight through Vienna with no assigned seats. Said making a reservation with a specific seat would be another $600 each. I'm not happy with that kind of service from RoadScholar, and it is unusual, but "what-da-ya-do"?
Gerry Chrisman Apr 20, 2015 at 03:58 PM

Gerry Chrisman Apr 20, 2015 at 04:01 PM

Well, that's 6 of us for May 6 trip: Brogdons, Druens and Chrismans for the May 6 trip. Anybody else going on that trip? Sorry, Bill and Leah, about that poor service on flights from Road Scholar. See everybody in 2 weeks!
Bill & Leah Brogdon Apr 29, 2015 at 07:51 PM

I know of 2 other couples going on our trip and flight. Nice folks, friends of our's.

Gerry Chrisman Feb 13, 2015 at 10:25 AM

Carol and I will be on May 6 trip. This will be our second international Road Scholar trip, with about 16 in US/Canada.

Joan Grube Feb 13, 2015 at 10:41 AM

I'll be interested in your opinion of the trip when you return. I am just a little concerned about the stairs with no handrails.
Bill & Leah Brogdon Mar 21, 2015 at 01:47 PM

Gerry, My wife and I will be on the May 6th trip also. Are you by chance going out of Dulles IAP on the 6th?
Gerry Chrisman Mar 21, 2015 at 02:53 PM

No, we ICarol and Gerry) are form Illinois and will be flying out of Chicago on the 5th, a day early. We've been waitllisted twice for this trip in past years, and very happy to be finally scheduled for it.

Maria Granito Feb 05, 2015 at 03:27 PM

I will be on the June 3 to June 17, 2015 trip. Would like to chat with others on the same schedule. Maria
Leslie Swain Feb 20, 2015 at 01:13 PM

I will be on this trip-I live in Atlanta and this is my first trip
Leslie Swain Feb 20, 2015 at 01:14 PM

Leslie Swain - I don't know why it doesnt print my name
Leslie Swain Feb 22, 2015 at 04:14 PM

I would love to know if anyone else is going from Atlanta as this is my first Road Scholar trip and I am going alone. I did this trip in 1964 with a group from Sarah Lawrence College so I am excited to see what I remember and how much has changed. I will be flying from Atlanta via
Maria Granito May 05, 2015 at 10:00 AM

Leslie, I too am traveling alone and live southeast of Atlanta. However i will be flying out of JFK doing a pretrip visit with my kids in PA.
Maria Granito May 05, 2015 at 10:02 AM

The last time I was in Greece and the Islands was in 1990. I think we both will be shocked. looking forward to meeting you.
Brian Hotaling May 12, 2015 at 10:16 PM

I am also on the June 3 departure, leaving from JFK as I live in New York and am single. Looking forward.
Maria Granito Jun 01, 2015 at 09:15 PM

Also looking forward to meeting you. My flight is DL 40.
Brian Hotaling Jun 02, 2015 at 09:29 PM

I am on Swiss Air flight via Zurich. See you in Athens.

Joan Grube Feb 03, 2015 at 04:13 PM

My daughter and I will be taking the Sept. 4-18 trip. This will be my 7th Road Scholar program and her first. My only concern is all the steps without handrails. Guess I'm paranoid since I fell down steps in Hawaii in 2001 and shattered my arm. That has made me a real chicken going down stair. I would enjoy hearing from anyone else going on this trip or any helpful info. from others who have made the trip.

Steve Weisbrod Aug 06, 2014 at 02:04 PM

My wife and I are going on the Sept 9 - 27 journey. Anyone with experience with this trip please advise to avoid unwanted surprises. We are first time Road Scholar participants and looking forward to the adventure.
