If you are interested in learning more about the Hopi tribe and want a very interesting experience that you can't have on your own I recommend this program. Some of the experiences were eye opening and certainly gave us things to think about.

This was wonderful educational experience learning about the culture of the Hopi people. All of the Hopi people we met were warm, friendly and sharing. Our guide, Ray Coin was terrific. Ray shared his culture with us and gave a real insight into the beliefs, customs, and the Hopi way. Of the eight Road Scholar trips we have taken this one will stay with us for a very long time and one we will ponder over again and again. We had experiences we will never forget and experiences that reached us on so many levels. If you have an interest in Native American cultures or just want to learn and to experience one of them, this is a trip I would highly recommend. The presenters are captivating. The sights are wondrous and hallowed, amazing really. Be aware, though, that photo-taking in many of the areas is not permitted. The location is over four hours north of Phoenix. We choose the Van Go Shuttle Service listed in the Road Scholar program and were very glad we did. Our driver, Larry was very friendly, helpful and provided a good deal of information about the area on our drive to and from the Hopi Cultural Center. We enjoyed everything about the program.

The program gave such an insight into the Hopi culture, past and present. Leader Ray Coin, a Hopi himself, shared so much of his own memories of growing up and the traditions.

This program is amazing. Ray Coin was exceptional. His knowledge of Hopi history and culture enriched us all. Ray's warmth was contagious and allowed for the group to bond. The guest speakers that we had were entertaining and demonstrated their crafts with professionalism. I would enjoy having Ray Coin lead other programs into Canyon de Chelly and Chaco Canyon, etc.

Wonderful, wonderful! This was an in depth look at the Hopi culture and their land. The people we met were warm and welcoming. The program leader, Ray Coin was so open with sharing his experiences. The guest speakers demonstrated their areas of expertise in a conversational manner. I loved it!
