The Eagle Triumphant was an absolutely marvelous experience. A perfect combination of luxury and learning, the journey exceeded my expectations. Both Major General Graham Hollands (ret) and Jean-Pierre Benamou were extremely knowledgeable and presented their material in an informed and engaging manner. Our group leader, Brigitte Young was a delight: competent, informed and full of good humor. We were in very good hands throughout our travels. The activity level was accurately described as moderately challenging and provided a welcome, if not necessary, counter balance to the many delicious meals we consumed. Our travel group, 15 in number, was a congenial, interesting group and quite compatible. Summing up, the experience was so extraordinary that I am having a bit of difficulty returning to my normal routines!

This was a fantastic trip. Military lecturer Major General Graham Hollands (ret.) was knowledgeable, involved and passionate about his subject. He is a national treasure -- of several nations. Tour leader Ernesto Flores was tops. He took care of details and was a pleasure to be with. Oh... by the way: The Queen Mary 2 was a hoot. -- From Wayne in Virginia.

This program allowed me to erase two items off of my "bucket list": crossing the Atlantic on the Queen Mary II and seeing the D-Day sites. The program, while strenuous, was exceptionally well led, organized, and taught. The trips and sites were more than expected. Camaraderie fostered among the participants by the leader was an added bonus. Lecturers were very knowledgeable, passionate, and very personable and approachable. This program met all my expectations and more.

This is one of the best ElderHostel/Road Scholar programs I have attended. I think its my 10th. All the Instructors were outstanding and our Road Scholar guide very organised. We stayed in nice Hotels and had very nice meals. I give this 10+ marks and a must for your bucket list. Patricia Conwell program date Jun 12th 2014
