Loved Ingrid and her graciousness, but not impressed with the train. Those of us not in deluxe accomodations were in cramped, overheated quarters. The long days were mostly due to the train not being able to pull into the station at a reasonable time. We got to Salzburg late in the afternoon. After eating, it was dark, cold, and all of the shops were closed. We couldn't board the train until 9 or 10 that night and couldn't stay in the restaurant. In Verona, the train was prevented from moving to a track where we could board until almost midnight. Those were the long days Emily was referring to. Still, it was a good bunch and I'd probably do it again. I certainly was not bored. The guides were great, we had some truly excellent meals, and Octoberfest is a fun time to go.

A tremendous journey through Europe but not for the faint of heart. Long days and constant touring, listening, and learning. The train trip was fantastic. A great adventure overall.

Overall, the program was good with a variety of experiences and an interesting group of participants and guides. I was disappointed in the train accomodations and wish that we had not taken the trip until we had been able to get a deluxe cabin.

This was my second Road Scholar trip and it lived up to all my dreams and hopes. The cities we visited were absolutely marvelous. The people on the trip with us were friendly and nice. Our leaders were thoughtful and accommodating. The lectures were informative. And the star of the show was the train. Even though there were some challenges for seniors in the smaller cabins, the romance of sitting opposite my wife in the dining car or lounge car and talking to others across the aisle was wonderful. I felt like I was in an Agatha Christie book.

This is a RR enthusiast's dream trip; however ensure you have the first class accommodations. The bunk beds in second class are too small and unsafe for seniors. The Guides are multi-lingual and multi-cultural--a must for this geographically challenging trip.
