The program in Tucson was delightful, what we learned and saw was beyond what i expected. I would have liked more time to view the excellent Art at the Art Museum instead of spending so much time seeing Bad Art at De Gracia Gallery.

This was a planned trip following the Road Scholar Deserts of the Southwest. For us it was an R&R opportunity befor heading back to colder climates.

It is hard to say what I enjoyed most about our visit to Tuscon. This was our 1st Road Scholar program.I appreciated the lectures which preceded our trips to the sights of Tuscon. Our delightful group leader,Charmayne,gets an A plus for keeping us on track and making it all so much fun.The best surprise was meeting the wonderful people in our group.

The program was refreshing and we were kept busy and on the go. The leaders, instructors and presenters were top notch and very helpful. The program participants were,as usual, diverse and interesting.

The program was jam-packed with activities, both indoors and out. The speakers provided great previews before we visited the old mission, gem show, Old Tucsan, Sabino Canyon and the Desert Museum. Our group leader Charmayne was terrific; she was highly organized and enthusiastic. And the participants were very special, eager to learn and fun to be around! Oh, and the food was the best I have had at a Road Scholar program.

The guest speakers (professors, docents, performers) were excellent - I learned a lot, always my goal. Our group leader was warm & charming - though this was her first time doing this particular RS program. Also, met a number of wonderful participants. Watch your hotel bill at Radisson-had to call regarding incorrect charge after I checked out!

Signature City Tucson was a wonderful trip. Linda was a very knowledgeable leader, the hotel was excellent and the activities were varied with many field trips. Weather in March was perfect! Linda Berger, Boston - 23 previous Road Scholar trips.

Signature City Tucson is an experience as extraordinary as a Southwest sunset. The educational information, the site visits, the tour guide and bus drive create a tour any participant will not long forget. The added bonus of the natural beauty of the Tucson area and generosity of the people one meets makes this Road Scholar trip top on my list!
