We couldn't have picked a better time of year to visit Mackinac Island. We found the accommodations very pleasant and the food was fabulous. Our leader, Tom, was very nice and always helpful. We enjoyed the lectures, for the most part, and learned a great deal about the island and the lifestyle of the residents who choose to live there year round. We would suggest that when going on the walking tours that they not repeat the same path so much. We went to same path several times along the shore and that was a little redundant. The meal out at the restaurant wasn't that great and we didn't really enjoy the atmosphere. We would have enjoyed another carriage ride to different parts of the island. The one event that stood out to us was high tea at the Grand Hotel. There was an adequate amount of time spent on each area and plenty of time to get to places and do things. We would highly recommend this trip to our friends.
