Guiding our group of 28 had to be like herding cats but our on-site leader (aided by his wife!) never missed a beat. Wimbledon is like Harvard: you hear about how good it is but you only understand when you see the real thing. Despite the crowds of thousands, I never felt pushed or crowded out. It's like strawberries & cream: really good and authentic.

This is a program which would be interesting for anyone remotely interested in tennis.

Fantastic program if you are at all interested in tennis. Wimbledon is an amazing experience and the related program lectures and site visits were added bonuses. London is a very easy city to get around in so you will feel comfortable going off on your own to see and do what interests you in the available free time. I will treasure the memories of this trip for a long time and, I may do it again!

Attending Wimbledon was fantastic. All of the information and trips we made to learn about the history of tennis and tennis in England prior or to going to Wimbledon, however made me appreciate it even more.

If you want to visit London and are a tennis fan, this is the trip for you. Great seats at Wimbledon, lots of opportunities to learn more about the history of tennis, really good accommodations in a convenient location, and time to do a few things on your own. Mary & Ed, Louisville, KY

This trip fulfilled a life-long dream to see tennis "up close and personal." Experiencing two days at Centre Court and walking the grounds, plus learning about "real" tennis, will be with me for years to come.

Kudos to Road Scholar for not only obtaining tickets to Wimbledon, but tickets for some of the best seats including access to the best restaurants. Then adding very knowledgeable speakers and field trips to historical centers made this an over-the-top experience, as the English would say.

Love tennis? Want to see London? What could be more perfect that the opening week at Wimbledon? Join other fans for an immersion in tennis history, recent past and present while enjoying London at the same time.

To all tennis lovers: The Wimbledon trip is excellent. Two days on center court in good seats during the first week of the tournament was a dream come true. The added treat of some good lectures and free time with a travel card to cover as many trips on the subways and busses as you would like is frosting on the cake. Ann from Chicago
