I LOVED this program! I enjoyed meeting and talking with the other participants. The program was very well planned and met my expectations and more. As a single traveler I was delighted that there were other singles on the trip. The beauty of the Hudson River area at Christmas Time speaks for itself. Glorious!

The program overall was excellent. Just be aware that in order to do the things listed on the itinerary, you are going to be riding on a bus about 4 hours each day.

I have never been on a more organized trip. I enjoyed each part and each event on the program. My favorite thing to see was the Angel Tree at the Metropolitan Museum. The most exciting thing to me was the bus ride up Fifth Avenue the last night along with what seem to be a million cars and two million people as the bright lights of Time Square left me with a lasting vision of NYC.

This was a great trip. We visited 5 mansions and learned many things about each one from Tom. The Nutcracker was beautiful and the Rockettes were fantastic. We had time to shop and enjoy the wonders of New York.

Loved, loved it! The mansions tours were informative and some of the docents even role played. Great variety of architectural styles and the stories about the people who built them brought the whole era to life. NYC puts on a great Christmas spectacular. Rockettes show was outstanding and the Nutcracker delightful. Warwick center is historical and in a pastoral setting. Food was plentiful and excellent...even the weather cooperated to make this a great trip. Recommend highly.

this program is a hard one to get to unless you are driving ! adds 100 + dollars to cost to get from airport to Warwick center and back to and from airport.

center was very nice--they had two buildings , we stayed in one and ate, watched TV, and had internet access in the other building. food was good. home cooking all the way !

program very nice. we had a big bus to take us on drive around the Hudson river and viewing and visiting the mansions there.

went in to NYC-2 days. did rockettes in the AM, free time to 7 pm afterwards. unfortunately we had down pour of rain that day and no place to go to get out of it. the bus was not picking us up till 7 PM>moral, take boots with you in the winter !! had 3 in of snow in warwick that am and RAIN all day in the city. not comfortable day.

more mansions next day, but a couple of us opted to skip and go back to NYC for a matinee that day. took commuter bus into NYC, picked up 2 half price ticket and were on our way to see WAR HORSE at Lincoln center. took bus back to Warwick in time for dinner.

back on bus next AM to city again, metropolitan museum until 3 pm and ballet at Lincoln center early that evening. very FULL days the whole trip.

i went a day early (sat), no car and no food- at center on weekends. another couple was there with car and went with them to village for dinner and breakfast
next day . center will take you to village for 5 dollars one way.

what i would do if i ever go back there, would be to stay in NYC afterwards for 2 or 3 days before coming home.
