Take this program! Savannah is a unique American city. The historic district is compact, yet with wide sidewalks, tree filled squares, interesting architecture and local shops and eateries. If you like the freedom of walking and the beauty of a historical small city, this program is for you.

If you have not traveled in the SE states, start here in Savannah. The history of this state is much more than what you learned in history classes. The state and local efforts to preserve the historic homes is wonderful. A trip you won't soon forget.

This is an outstanding tour, way beyond our expectations. It was interesting, entertaining, and fun, all at a relaxed Southern pace. We learned about Savannah, its present, its history, its music and its food. The cooking school day was great fun.

If you enjoy learning about history of one of our outstanding city in the United States, take the Road Scholar trip to Savannah, GA. The city is beautiful with delightful Squares with live Oak trees, outstaning architecture, good food and many other things to discover.

My husband and I just finished the program in Savannah, Georgia, and loved every minute of it. The program covers the history, culture, food and music of the city and the area. Presenters were well-chosen and did a fantastic job. I especially loved the cooking lesson at Chef Darin's cooking school and the music presenters, both singers and musicians, were excellent. We were glad that we had chosen to stay at the downtown location (DeSoto Hilton) as everything was within walking distance, and free public transportation was just a half block away. What a beautiful city and what a great program!

This program was educational, entertaining, a relaxed pace and left me with an appreciation of Savannah that I had not experienced prior to this. It was delightful.

Beautiful city, brimming with history and stories of the past. This trip was a true southern experience and opened my eyes to much of our nations's history- and the characters that developed it. This was a great program! I can't wait for my next Road Scholar trip!

I was so impressed by my first Road Scholar trip - to Savannah. The leaders, Paul and Jacky, were so efficient that the programmes went ver smoothly from one to the other. The stately homes of Savannah were fascinating and the really lively talk by General Oglethorpe was outstanding. The other great event waste hands on cooking with Chef Darin. A good group of friendly people made this lone English person feel very welcome.

Karen from Brooklyn, NY Number of programs attended: 1

This was my first Road Scholars trip but certainly, with the help of God, not my last. The learning experience provided by Paul was top notch. The tours were so informative and interesting. Meeting all the different people from all walks of life was awesome as well. And the food...well that was just wonderful especially the cooking class with Chef Darin. I would definitely recommend this tour but only if you are taking it with Road Scholars!

This was a terrific program - Paul and Jacky were SO helpful and knowledgeable, the hotel was centrally located and had great b'fast buffet - the programs were fun, with lots of music and history - some restaurant meals for lunch and/or dinner in good, local restaurants and enough free time to relax, see the sights and totally enjoy Savannah - I'd like to add that I am Gluten-free (not by choice) and every meal I ate was GF & great - I have done other programs & this was the best ever -

All I can say was the experience was incredible. Met new friends, learned a new perspective on savannah and enjoyed every aspect. Made new friends, laughed a lot!

Joan E. from Wauconda, IL Number of programs attended: 1
Date attended: 10/20/13 - 10/25/13
This was my first Road Scholar Trip. I was very impressed with the variety of programs that Paul provided for us: a morning history lecture, historical impersonator, sessions on architecture and art, two on music, a cooking class that was very exciting, walking tours of the city and historical houses and fabulous food (which we walked off on the tours). The visit with Mr. Duncan, a prominent bookseller, and his wife, in their old restored home, was very enjoyable. I'm looking forward to Provence next fall.

This a worthwhile program with excellent, talented instructors. Highly recommended if you have an interest in 1700-1800 America. Quite specific in its content.

Lee and Bill would rank the Savannah program near the top. Intro to low country food was nice, including Mrs. Wilkes Dining Rm. and of course the cooking school. New appreciation for this fine city.

Our Coordinator Paul and his sister Jackie made Savannah come alive. They were a fountain of knowledge about the history, culture and music of Savannah. The program was well organized, the food beyond incredible and the diversity of the people on our tour made it a delight!

We had a wonderful time in Savannah The program was well organized and the Hilton Hotel was great. We had wonderful food and the musical program on Johnny Mercer was outstanding.

Alice from Hendersonville, NC Number of programs attended: 3
Date attended: 10/20/13 - 10/25/13
This is a wonderful program for those interested in Savannah's heritage, its food, music and history. I learned so much, even though I had visited Savannah a number of times previously. October is a wonderful time to travel, weather-wise, and the accommodations at the Desoto Hilton cannot be matched. It was a wonderful experience!
