I found the trip to be enjoyable and stimulating. One specific thought that I think would make it easier for the trip leader to handle the "gathering" process-- Use the Buddy Check to determine that all persons are present and ready to go. Each participant should have a "buddy" that is not a close friend or associate. When "buddy check" is called for, each of the two "buddies" affirm that his/her buddy is present. This eliminates the task of counting. Makes it much easier for the group leader.


Not that far from NJ but very European and a different culture. Exceeded our expectations. Stan Urban


If you like to combine travel with education, Road Scholars is the way to go.


the program was as excellent as advertised. The flawless logistics made the program more enjoyable because we never worried whether transportation would arrive or that a meal would not. We could concentrate on the program experience.


Very enjoyable program. Delivered what it promised. I was reading Louise Penny's book, Bury Your Dead, while in Quebec City, and it added another dimension to seeing the town. Review the recommended reading before you go; it will add to your understanding and enjoyment. There's lots to see and knowing something about the sights will help you plan your free time. There's lots of walking; you'll get your 10,000 steps in, no question!


I think the website is excellent. It is easy to find information about our trips.

Enjoyable trip. Met many wonderful people and saw fabulous sites. We were part of history since the G-7 was held during our trip. The accomodations and food were great as well. Would highly recommend this program.


French Canada tour was fabulous due to the quality of the guides and the mixture of activity - art, music, walking tours, city history, a visit to Montmorency Falls, and having French President Macron and his wife, drop into the patisserie our guide recommended while we were there! Such fun!


If you don't want to deal with an overseas flight, satisfy your longing for France and do this easy trip from US. No Eifel Tower but the architecture, river, French language, art, style and romance of Paris is available in Montreal and Quebec.
