I thoroughly enjoyed my Road Scholar trip "Monumental DC". Our accommodations were great and the guides were terrific, as well as the food options. I chose to go in the early fall to avoid the large influx of school groups that seem to visit in the spring. It was so interesting to learn the stories behind how some of the monuments came to be. Washington DC is a wonderful place to visit. I extended my trip for 2 days so I could take in some of the sites that were not included. I highly recommend this travel opportunity.


Expensive, but well worth it.


I want to go again on another Road Scholar journey. It was a great experience.


Highly suggest giving this consideration. I'd been to another RS program in DC a couple years ago, but this one hit a lot of different places. I went because of Mount Vernon (bucket list) and got a lot of wonderful bonus prizes. As usual it is your fellow scholars who make it special


Excellent tour. Glad I was able to see Washington DC with Roads Scholar.


Website is fine, the evaluation pagesneed a 'save" button on each page, save and continue buttons, thank you. 10.21.18


My husband and I enjoyed the Washington DC Monument tour immensely. It was interesting, speakers were well informed and made fascinating presentations. The group of people were warm friendly and were a real bonus. We kept busy but our every need was met. The accommodations at the Marriott were luxurious. We were so pleased with how prepared the guides were and how organized. Even the bus drivers were gracious in their service.


Great program. They keep you busy all the time. Visited numerous museums and historical sites. Meals were excellent. Nothing bad to say about this program.


Washington D.C.; great city to visit with so much to see. I enjoy visiting Washington D.C. for all the National monuments and the Smithsonian Museums. I am ready to go back for another visit. But, I won't go in May again when the city is filled with 8th graders on their school trips to Washington. The Road Scholar tour filled my needs of getting to the monuments without a lot of walking. I was disappointed with the Marriott hotel as I have had better food at other Road Scholar accommodations on other Road Scholar trips. Our guides were extremely knowledgeable, and I thank them for accommodating a stop at the Pentagon 9/11 Memorial.
