We thought that our tour of "The Three Faces of France" was outstanding. We visited sites that we would never have seen on our own. Caroline Buizza, our tour guide, was outstanding, knowledgeable and accommodating.

Wow! This program exceeded my expectations. Visiting Paris, Lyon and Arles is the right way to learn about France. I can't wait to go back.

Three Faces of France was exactly the program I wanted, from the big city of Paris, through the gastronomic capitol Lyon, to Arles with its Roman ruins and the Camargue. Perfect!!

This trip provides a wonderful exposure to three distinct areas of France. With expert guides steeped in the history and culture of their country leading the tour, we enjoyed every moment. An outstanding value. A memorable experience. Paula Hartnett

This program was very well prepared and provided a great educational and enjoyable trip and experience for me. Each trip tour was headed by knowledgeable people and they were very easy to understand.

This was my first Road Scholar tour and my first trip to France. I was not disappointed! I enjoyed the sights, sounds, smells and tastes of "la belle France." I also enjoyed the excellent company, from our fabulous guide Robert, our local experts, and each and every member of the group. A special shout out to my fellow Provencal asylum singers - you know who you are! I hope our paths cross again soon.

I found "Three faces of France" to be a fantastic program! We really did see three very different faces of France.
