A chance for complete immersion in some of those countries we studied in school. A truly educational experience, but one softened by fine food and fine companions.

This Road Scholar program ranks up there with the very best. Fran's and Hedi gave us such a wonderful education on a personal level. They have such pride in their countries and are so knowledgeable in all aspects of the journey from Amsterdam to Budapest. The various supplemental guides added a charming personal interest to the excursions. The Amacerto is a first class River boat and the crew took excellent care of us. The particapants lacked for nothing; every comfort was afforded us. Friendships were formed that will add to our future enjoyment of the trip as we share pictures and memories.

This was a most enjoyable experience and exceeded our expectations. The group leaders, Franz and Hedi are fantastic. There is so much to be learned and experienced on this tour. The local guides are proud of their cities and provide insightful perspectives into the culture and history of their area. We were pleased that we choose to do this tour with Road Scholar as there were additional lectures, several tours were combined and we had the insights of Franz and Hedi to assist us in selecting additional tours offered by the ship at an additional cost. The ship is comfortable, the staff of the ship are amazing, the accommodations are very good and the food plentiful and varied. Highly recommend this tour with Road Scholar.

Not your typical Elderhostel. First class service and pampering all the way, in addition to being fun and highly educational. Will definitely do another like this one.

I can't adequately describe how delighted I am with this program! The organizers Hedi and Franz were superb and provided great insight into what we were experiencing. The ship Amacerto was excellent and the food was always good and usually excellent. The ports were interesting (and often awesome) and the river cruising experience was everything I hoped for. And the Road Scholar experience definitely improved what would have been an extraordinary trip (for the other cruisers) by providing the best of each port using great personally selected guides.
