the only part I was unhappy about was the very expensive air fare. After speaking to other partcipants I believed we paid much more that they did. Also, other members came from NY airports, so why didn't we travel together to London, as we travelled on the same day? I believed my daughter and I overpaid for our airfare. It didn't seem fair.

I highly recommend this program to anyone who is interested in seeing London. Our Course Director, Kevin Flude, was wonderful and always had something new to say about even familiar sights.

Barbara from Dublin, OH Number of programs attended: 2
Date attended: 09/15/14 - 09/24/14
The program London's Cultural Heritage was wonderful. We went Sept. 14 and the weather was perfect. The instructor Kevin had a vast knowledge of London & British history and added significantly to our experience. The other participants were delightful and the hotel was located in a convenient area, near shops, restaurants and transportation. I would rate this program a '10'!

The knowledge of program leaders and instructors was awesome! I learned so much more than I expected and had a wonderful time learning.

Really well done tour with terrific leaders. I stayed an extra two weeks in London afterwards so this Road Scholar kick off was very helpful to me and my confidence in getting around London. Leanne Portland, Oregon

Our primary instructor Kevin and Blue Guide Chris were both knowledgeable & witty and told wonderful anecdotal stories (Kevin has so much info in his head I thought his brain would explode!). Jan managed the trip efficiently & was fun to talk to. I've been in London before but saw more this time--lots of "off the beaten track" visits. One downer, the hotel restaurant & bar were being refurbished and our meals were in a depressing basement room with moss as a center piece. Included out meals at the Criterion & Sherlock Holmes Pub (sticky toffee pudding!) were great. Hotel is close to a tube station so made easy access for leisure time travel. Trip was "top notch."

This was a very well-run and expertly-led program of exactly the right length to cover the historic and iconic material essential to an understanding of London's heritage and it's role in the world.

Kerry from West Suffield, CT Number of programs attended: 15
Date attended: 10/14/13 - 10/23/13
This Road Scholar program provides a comprehensive study of London's cultural and historic sites. Our instructor, Kevin Flude, was a terrific guide: friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to be with. The program's itineary includes visits to numerous interesting museums, churches, and two palaces as well. In addition, our group spent a wonderful evening at the theater, beginning with dinner at an elegant restaurant.

**Editing my review. I see the guide scheduled for this year is different from the one who led my trip. I love London and hope that the guide for this year is not just knowledgeable but is also able to present in an interesting and dynamic manner.

Our tour of London was a once-in-a-lifetime experience and a great way for us to celebrate our golden wedding anniversary. Our guides were knowledgeable, friendly and fun to be with. We will take more trips with Road Scholar!

What a great introduction to London.. Since we touched on so many things we are hoping to go back some future time on our own to see things there was not time for and visit others in greater depth.

Very well organized. Very knowledgeable and approachable guides. London is a fascinating city, so much so that I will visit there again.
