I would recommend this trip to people who are interested in horse racing, see The Hotel is located within walking distance of the surrounding stores. The Hotel was clean, comfortable and the dinners were excellent, especially the salmon. The Hotel Employees were friendly and very professional in the way they handled guests. The field trips were interesting and the bus ride was relaxing and the buses were clean.

This program exceeded my expectations. This was our 15th program, and it was one of the best. There was a good balance between excursions - museums, the day at Keeneland, and the programs back at the hotel. The accommodations were excellent and the staff at the hotel was welcoming and excellent. The length of the program (4 days) was perfect.

This was a great program even if you don't know about horses or horse races. The accommodations through Barea College was also interesting. The amount of money that is involved horse breeding and horse racing will surprise you.

This was my test run of the Road Scholar program. It was a "make or break" test. I am now a believer. This program was fun, well run, great accommodations and wonderful program director. I agree with Jon, if you have an interest in the subject, you cannot go wrong with this program.

Berea is a lovely town to visit. Boone Tavern is a treat to stay in. The programs offered are correctly described and if you like what you see in the description you'll love your Berea experience!
