This program is definitely a must for those wishing to visit this beautiful continent. I could not have had a better experience. Although I travelled alone I never felt alone. I would return in a heartbeat.

Jut returned from the Mar7-20 trip. Weather was perfect...no rain, although humid and somewhat hot. No problems with insects. Scenery spectacular. The trip through the lakes to Bariloche was beautiful. Bariloche was absolutely gorgeous...and much larger than expected. Iguazu falls were full and thunderous and wonderful.

This was a wonderful opportunity to explore Chile & Argentina. Road Scholar did an exceptional job of accommodating our group through some unforeseen circumstances! I would recommend this trip highly.

The natural beauty of the Puerto Montt, Puerto Varas, crossing to Bariloche, Bariloche, and Iguazu Falls gave the word awesome a new meaning for me.

We had delightful leaders; Charlie, Andrea, Katherinr, and, of course the ever-resourceful Victor! They took us to enchanting restaurants: the lavender farm tea room, the winery, and the equestrian farm. Such varied activities! From cathedrals and museums to tango lessons each day had some special and amazing!

This program opened my eyes to both countries and provided an energetic introduction to South America. Iquazu Falls cannot be photographed or described adequately. So happy I got to experience it in person. I loved the mix of city and nature experiences.

Excellent, cost-effective trip. Would highly recommend it for an introduction to Santiago, Upper Patagonia lake district, Iguazu Falls and Buenos Aires. Excellent tour guide and very informative lecturers. Nice family visits to winery, Rodeo ranch and farm, giving details on their activities that one cannot get in books. The only "active" part was a 2.5 mile walk at Iguazu Falls, the other days involved under 1.5 mile walks in museums and city sidewalks. Pleasant group of 19 individuals with interesting backgrounds. Pack primarily summer clothes (with jacket or sweater), not cold like lower Patagonia.

Carol Dranoff, Brigantine,NJ Number of Programs Attended 1 Date attended 02/04/14-02/17/14 This was the first time I have traveled alone. I had taken multiple trips to Europe and Asia with my husband and friends. This unique experience has motivated me to do more similar traveling. I learned a lot about packing and other things which will be useful in the future. I loved the place we ventured to. The trip was well planned as well as so beautiful. I think my lunch at the farm in the Lake District was simply delightful.It was one of those experiencesI would never have had with another travel venue. Hats off to Francisco our guide.
