Linda and I really enjoyed our trip to the three islands. It was enough for us to get the flavor of the experience and our travel companions were wonderful. Everyone was very nice and our leader, Lorrie was very nice and accommodating our large group of 26 people.

This was my first visit to Hawaii and was a great introduction. Our group leader, Frank, was exceptional and I intend to return to the islands soon. The balance between educational content and free time was just right.

I was very impressed with the calibre of expertise exhibited by the presenters. No yawning seen during any of the presentations.

A terrific introduction to Hawaii -- Waikiki, volcanoes on the Big Island and snorkeling, whale watching and beautiful parks on Maui -- most enjoyable.

Hawaii 11/ 2014 Tour Critique The bottom line is that Pat Lau is a super guide, and the Hawaii trip is well planned and executed. Pat is locally knowledgeable, verbal, musical, and a helpful and delightful leader for adults. The tourist site mix was excellent and well-paced. Group size was appropriate and responded well to the pace. The education element was well generally executed, and I offer a suggestion below. My suggestion: Hawaii is uniquely blessed with an assortment of world-class telescopes and astronomical facilities which are available and accessible for education. Therefor I suggest at least one educational segment devoted to the subject of astronomy and perhaps a site visit to one of the telescope sites. Everyone would be interested.

A great introduction to Hawaii, particularly if you are interested in the geology of volcanoes.

Having attended 11 programs, but never to Hawaii, I expected this program to bring me the highlights of the various islands. It did not disappoint. Road Scholar knows how to select the highest levels of instructors while taking advantage of the culture, scenery and playfulness of the hawaiian atmosphere. As usual, we stayed in local well placed facilities each with their own advantages. This program was a first time offering and fairly fast-paced but we all went with the program and were organized by 7a.m. aa planned. Oahu (Pearl Harbor), Big Island of Hawaii(Kilauaia) and Maui( (Haleakala) were standouts. Some of the restaurants were mediocre and the Kilauaen Military Camp was so-so (tho well-located) but any opinions were overridden by the sights and the last resort (Royal Lahaina). I recommend this trip for a diverse visit to the islands. Our guide, Pat, was outstanding. Spouse and I spent 3 extra days on Oahu at the Moana Surfrider - it is gorgeous and well worth the money. We rented a car and drove to the North island to see the World Surfboarding championships being held over the next few weeks.

As a first-timer with Road Scholar and a first-time to Hawaii, this trip exceeded my expectations. Combining three very different islands with lecturers and field trips along the way; I have a greater appreciation for Hawaii, its people, and its language. Great tour leader and an interesting group of travelers.
