Santa Fe, the City Different is a very quick over view of Santa Fe and very close environments. You will have to return to get more feel & sights of the surrounding area. 2 more days tacked on to this tour will make you happy, but you will still want to return another time.

Santa Fe, a City Different, was a wonderful experience for us. September is a beautiful time there. So much to do and see. The trip was the perfect blend of learning, going, relaxing and sharing. Highly recommend it to others.

This was an excellent program, with a good mix of culture, art, and food. Our tour guide Kay's knowledge of the city greatly enhanced our experience. Our hotel was very comfortable, with good amenities, and close to the plaza.

This program was outstanding! I wish I could do it all over again. Hats off to Kay Barber, our leader, who made the program exceptional. Can't wait to come to Santa Fe for the opera program.

I am 92 years old & I knew that I would not be able to
to do all the program ac tivities (altitude was a definite
problem), but still loved the program, people, etc. I was
with daughter & husband.

I have been to Santa Fe many times and this was one of my best visits. I was able to enjoy everything and not worry about meals, transportation, reservations or scheduling. I felt carefree to enjoy everything.

What a wonderful week in Santa Fe. The variety of topics chosen by Road Scholars, the knowledge of the presenters, the places we visited, the excellent restaurants, the hands on experiences in cooking and art, all wrapped in the amazing history of the area.

Margaret from Bremerton, WA Number of programs attended: 1

What an enriching experience this week was - it left us hungering to return to Santa Fe and to the Southwest in general. Outstanding variety in topics, delivered by outstanding presenters; cooking lessons, art lessons, anthropology, history of the area, and especially access to places and Indian artifacts not open to the public. Meals were outstanding; laughter and awe of the area abounded.

We had a wonderful girls trip with Road Scholar as our guide. We learned so much in varied expression from history to cooking to art and so much more. Fantastic facilitation.

Santa Fe, The City Different, was the perfect spot to escape from the snow, ice and/or rain and sleet that held the participants captive in their own cities this winter. We enjoyed cool temperatures, bright blue skies, beautiful art, great food, fun activities and soaked up lots of culture - a perfect winter break.

If you like art and want to be surprised at how interesting the southwest can be, take the Santa Fe program. It's outstanding!
