I very much enjoyed my Road Scholar's trip to St Augustine. The city is quite an amazing place with lots to see - interesting buildngs and museums. With a combination of lectures an d field trips, this tour makes the city come alive. Those is charge are professional, organized and thoughtful. There is also the benefit of staying in a pleasant hotel by the ocean with a chance to swim and walk on the beach - a definite plus if you live in a land locked and colder part of the country

This was our first Road Scholar experience. We would have never learned all that we did had we taken this trip on our own. This was a totally exceptional experience! We were immersed in every aspect of the culture and history of St Augustine, and especially enjoyed the dramatic, costumed presentations of the important people of the time, especially the music and literary characters. We were blessed with a totally delightful group leader who made us all feel as if we were part of her extended family. We would definitely look to Road Scholar for our next travel adventure.

This was a very good program in a wonderful, historic city and provided an enjoyable respite from the long, cold Chicago winter!

Prepare to be enchanted! I experienced a new sense of gratitude towards all.. who had the vision of developing St. Augustine and now towards those who preserve this charming, full of history at every turn, "jewel by the ocean." YOU will want to stay long after the program is over or return and again..and again..

This was our 26th Elderhostel/Road Scholar, and I would rate it among the best, both in terms of content, presenters and leadership!
