The education value of this program was excellent. All of the speakers were top notch and I re-learned a lot of U.S. history that I had forgotten since high school. We also loved experiencing the Riverwalk in San Antonio and visiting the famous Alamo. I didn't think I would be interested in LBJ's presidency but I was pleasantly surprised to enjoy both his ranch and library in Austin. Overall, this program offered a great variety and we felt we certainly got our money's worth.

A thoroughly enjoyable trip! I learned so much and developed an entirely new picture of Texas, especially of its complicated history and the variety of people who consider themselves Texans. The other participants enriched my life. They impressed me with their desire to keep learning and also to persevere in the face of health challenges. I loved their intelligence and courage. The leaders and presenters were all excellent.


If you are curious about Texas, and want to know more about its history and culture, this is a wonderful trip. It will answer many questions, and whet the appetite to dig deeper into what makes this state so unique.


Fairly good program


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.
