Was on the Sept-Oct 2013 Julia Child-QM2 program. Have a few comments. Think that 3 days with Barbara Haber would be sufficient. Also, she began every morning at 0900, almost impossible to actually get a good breakfast. Lectures should begin no earlier than 1000, it is the QM2 and grabbing a bite in the cafeteria is not my idea of life aboard the QM2! When in Paris,the homes/kitchens were interesting, one trip to each would be enough. There was almost no free time, when we in Paris! This is Paris, some people would have enjoyed viewing more of it. The tour guide Brigitte Young was sensational! On top of every problem with a smile! Really made the trip worth it.

It wasn't Paris in springtime but probably better - little rain. The opportunities to be immersed in that rarified culinary air of Boston, Queen Mary II and Paris, oh la, la. The taste buds were stimulated and have yet to recover. Encore?

Impressed and satisfied with my Julia Child Excursion this past June. Our guide Brigitte and Barbara our lecturer were simply wonderful and made the trip all the better with their caring and knowledgeable presence. I found the Queen Mary 2 a little tired and in need of some updated entertainment but the service and concern of the staff was impeccable. The Boston and Paris trip portions were chock full of interesting activities but of course the BEST part of the trip was our wonderful group of 19 - I can't imagine the good times and hearty laughs I would have missed without their company! Thank you.

This Julia Child tour far exceeded my expectations and provided me with learning experiences and memories that will last a lifetime. Our Group Leader (Brigitte Young) is the consummate professional who ensured every aspect of our trip went smoothly. Any problems were resolved seemlessly and we felt fortunate to have Brigitte coordinating our experiences and being so concerned that we enjoyed our trip. We hope Road Scholar considers offering tours to other parts of France or England, using Brigitte as the Group Leader. She is outstanding and we considered ourselves fortunate to have met her.

This was an outstanding program for food enthusiasts. We had many special opportunities and experiences that I could not have arranged on my own, including a cheese & wine pairing, cooking classes and demonstrations, and a number of exceptional meals in special places. The RS staff members we encountered were diverse experts skilled at sharing their knowledge about subjects of great interest to us. Our group was composed of enthusiastic foodies, and we shared a lot of fun experiences and a lot of great food.

The Julia Child Voyage was a wonderful experience. I loved the combination of Boston-Queen Mary 2-Paris, the focus on food, the cooking classes and demonstrations, guided tours, lectures, special dinners. Our program leader Brigitte Young did an outstanding job. It was a great trip!
