While on this excellent tour a stranger in the elevator saw our Road Scholar name tags and asked why we were Road Scholars. I replied, "Because we are smart!"
This was our third Road Scholar trip, and we considered it to be the best one yet. Our group leader, Sue Peace, was excellent--warm, organized, available, knowledgeable, and fun. The content of the trip was highly varied and always interesting. I came away with a new perspective and appreciation for San Antonio, Texas hill country, Austin, and LBJ. We highly recommend this particular trip; we had a great time!
This was an excellent program, my first Road Scholar excursion, but it won't be my last. The tour was extremely well organized, had very competent and helpful tour directors, excellent lecturers and guides, a good balance of lecture and field activity, terrific accommodations and food, and interesting and enjoyable travel companions.

Great trip. The group leader was excellent. Thank you for being so nice to my mom.
Outstanding program in every way! Springtime in San Antonio and Austin is a great time to be there....sunshine & warm temps enjoyed!
This was my first Road Scholar experience and it won't be the last. Three areas, San Antonio, Texas hill country, and Austin in one adventure. I learned a lot and had a wonderful time with great group leaders and fun and interesting fellow Road Scholars. The experiences in San Antonio and Austin were as wonderful as I had expected, but what we saw in the hill country, particularly the quality of the National Museum of the War in the Pacific in Fredericksburg was a total surprise.

I expected oil wells, cowboys, and long horn cattle. San Antonio, the hill country, and Austin are so much more.
What a change in San Antonia since I was last there 35 years ago.
This is an excellent program for history lovers, with outstanding presenters and very interesting museums and historical sites to visit. We also had a very entertaining Grammy award winner give a program on country music in Austin. I highly recommend this program for first time visitors to San Antonio, the Hill Country and Austin.
See a fascinating part of Texas and learn about Texas history and politics from San Antonio to Austin, with an interesting stop in Fredricksburg and learn about the German immigrants to the area. I especially enjoyed the beautiful LBJ ranch.
This is one of the best Road Scholar programs I have been on. I learned so much about Texas history, culture and politics. The leaders were fabulous, the lecturers incredible, and the other participants were warm, welcoming and interesting people.
I found the National Museum of the Pacific War & Admiral Nimitz Museum very interesting. Be sure to step outside and visit the courtyard of memorial plaques and the Japanese Peace Garden. The visit to the LBJ National Historic Park and Ranch is fascinating. Our Austin tour of the Texas State Capitol building and the LBJ Presidential Library were worthwhile visits. Good trip for learning more about our history even for those of us who lived through the time periods explored.
