Reviews, photos and videos for program: The Best of Hawaii and Kauai
Marsha-Marie from Carlsbad, CA Number of programs attended: 1
Date attended: 10/14/14 - 10/24/14
The program was excellent as were our our exceptional leaders Linda Warriner and Claudia Ziroli-Coyl. Totally enjoyed the hotels, the food, and the great people I met. Even enjoyed riding on the school buses (after all it has been a LONG time since I've done so). Even the one day delay due to a hurricane was fun as some of us from Southern California had not seen rain in quite a while.

This program far exceeded my expectations. The guides were excellent and I learned a great deal about Hawaiian culture. The countryside is beautiful. Accomodations were very good as was the food. All in all, a great adventure!

A rare and worthwhile experience. Bright participants and a joy to be with, this being my 21st Elderhostel. 2nd half on Hawaii had exceedingly good presenters and Claudia mother hubbar'd us to perfection.

iF YOU WANT TO SEE GARDENS, HOMES, CHURCHES, MUSEUMS,VOLCANOES, THIS IS FOR YOU. IF YOU WANT TO GO TO THE BEACH, IT ISN'T.IF YOU WANT HIGH END SHOPPING, NO. IF YOU ARE CONTENT WITH BLAND AMERICAN FOOD, THIS IS FOR YOU. IF YOU HAVE ANY TROUBLE WITH RIDING IN A CRAMPED, UNCOMFORTABLE SCHOOL BUS, STAY AWAY.

Excellent guides/interpreters and sensible accommodations. Lively and likeable companions together with Hawaii's beauty made it a very nice tour.

If you want an overview of the geology, history and both ancient and current Hawaiian culture, this is the program for you. The in-country program directors were the best I have had on any Roadscholar program. A great short(95 pages) book introducing Hawaii from the first settlers up to 2009 is A Concise History of the Hawaiian Islands by Dr. Phil Barnes published by Petroglyph Press updated in 2009.
