For my first time at Road Scholar, I had a most enjoyable time, learned a lot and met some wonderful people that made the trip worth while. Plan to do more in the future.

This was a great 'taster' . We covered a lot of topics that describe Mendocino in enough detail to leave good memories without overdoing things. I enjoyed the program and will be looking for other programs that visit new places.

This was our first Road Scholar program but have attended 9 old Elderhostels programs. This one ranks right up at the top of the list. To learn so much about the history and environment of this little village and area that we have visited in the past will make the area become more of a pleasure to visit in the future than before. The program events were outstanding as were the lectures and docents. The Mendocino Hotel and Garden Suites could have been helped with a bit of paint in the rooms but,then,what Grande Dame couldn't. The room accomodations were comfortable and the food extremly good. The outstanding feature of this program was Mary Jackson and her volunteer aide, Drew. She is the best group leader we have ever had. She is very informative(or will find the answer to your question), cheerful, humerous and a lovely hostess as we all found out when she invited the group into her home. RoadScholar, you are fortunate to have found this lady for a group leader.

I highly recommend Historic Mendocino Program #6463. Mary Jackson was an excellent group leader, the area is beautiful Californa coastline, the food was the best I have had in 11 programs, the hotel is charming and historic and the instructors were knowledgeable and enthusiastic. There is not much free time, however, with all but one night having a scheduled meeting. Ron October 2013
