I needed to go back and say how much I enjoyed the presentation re_ the Statue of Liberty... It enhanced the visit.. I blew that response.

It was a very good program. The leaders were wonderful! My granddaughter and I enjoyed the company of the other participants. We were able to see a lot and the variety was great.

I enjoyed the many adventures of this program. I was amazed that we could experience so much that NYC has to offer in just 5days ! The staff was very pleasant, helpful & knowledgeable, real ambassadors for their city. Loved sharing experience with my grandchild.

Hooray for one of the first Road Scholar tours to include three generations of families!! And the organization on this tour included every single participant. In my family, I am the oldster, and I loved it and learned a lot. My daughter really had a chance to tour and plan the extra-curricular trips we enjoyed together. My teen age grandson was interested especially in the learning experience of each lecture and activity, and my 9-year old granddaughter also learned a lot, and had children in her own age-group to relax and have fun with. It was a wonderful experience to join together as a family in such an exciting and inspiring place, and to learn so much.
