Pam and Warren from Tampa, Florida Number of programs attended:2 Date attended:05/27/12-06/01/12 This is the 2nd program we have attended. This program was a bargain. The accommodations were great, the meals were mostly home cooked and definitely delicious. Nancy and Andre made us feel right at home. We both loved the opportunity to learn facinating history that we didn't know about. The group we were with was great. We traveled well together and enjoyed the company of the people we got to know.

The program was well-conceived, well-executed, and we participants very well-fed. Hostess/leader Nancy is a many-faceted Renaissance Woman. This was my first small-group ElderHostel. I am happy to report that there were no rotten apples. What a group we were (4 Canadian, 8 American)! This program taps into a lot of enthusiasm resident in the Kootenays.
