Short and to the point!


As with other programs I've been on, this program met or exceeded my expectations. I love going on Road Scholar vacations.


Was surprised by how attractive a city San Antonio is. A good blend of historical and more modern architecture. It is also a good example of how people of different ethnic backgrounds can live harmoniously together.


Very good website!


The Great-American get-together in San Antonio was fun... I got to meet people from around the country and got to learn about San Antonio and about South Texas. Fredericksburg was an unexpected but delightful surprise, and we got to visit a working ranch for a barbecue. I enjoyed this trip immensely.


We had a great experience with Road Scholar and would highly recommend this group to my friends and family. Looking forward to our next great adventure.


I had a great time on this first Road Scholar trip. My expectations were met and will be taking more trips with Road Scholar in the future.


This is a very informative and interesting program describing the history of Texas from the time of the French, Spanish, and Mexican period thru the time of independence and then becoming a U.S. state. Don't miss it!


San Antonians are diverse, friendly and uniquely proud of their history! Incredibly wonderful program.


We were most impressed, with this our first Roads Scholar program. The very best part was our group leader, Janie-she could not have been more welcoming and caring. The speakers were so well-informed and we feel like we saw every aspect of San Antonio and loved the city!


Road Scholar trips are educational, fun, entertaining and affordable! The San Antonio trip met all our expectations! The riverwalk was fantastic, the lectures were interesting and informative, and the Drury Hotel was lovely and convenient to the riverwalk! My husband and I highly recommend it to anyone interested in seeing San Antonio!! We learned so much about the culture and history of that area. Visiting the LBJ ranch and his early home was a memorable part of our trip! We even had time to go to the Tower of America’s on our free time.


Thanks to our wonderful tour guide Sue and the others this was a pleasant and interesting trip. We learned a lot about San Antonio and they kept our interest throughout. Thank you.


The San Antonio program was delightful and exceeded my expectation for learning and enjoyment. Road Scholar takes care of the smallest details -wonderful!


San Antonio is a very interesting place to visit and this program gave me a great opportunity to learn about a new place.


I went to San Antonio hoping to see new places, learn new things, and meet interesting people. The Great Getaway exceeded my expectations in these areas and more. Words cannot describe how great this program is; you must go experience it to understand.


The San Antonio trip was my first trip with Road Scholar, but it definitely will not be the last. I learned so much about the history of the area and visited many of the sites we had learned about during the informative morning lectures. Don't groan at the mention of a lecture ... you will thoroughly enjoy the lecture and wish that it had not ended. Go on a trip with Road Scholar and expand your horizons!


The program was most enjoyable, very educational and made especially good use of our time. I would give it high recommendations to anyone considering it. Experiencing San Antonio without this program would fall far short of learning so much there is to know about San Antonio!

What a fantastic trip! From the moment the travel department customized my air travel, to being met by a local Road Scholar rep at San Antonio airport I knew I was in good hands and the trip was off to a great start. Karen, our group leader, was super, with everything so well organized all went off without a hitch. I can't believe how well she had all 88 of us organized. I know its a team effort so kudos to all those behind the scenes people who helped pull it all together. Then there was Janie our team leader. That woman should get a medal!! Not only was she very knowledgeable about all the areas we toured but handled all our questions with tact and humour. She was a pleasure, just a pure pleasure! Last but not least was the venue of the Drury Riverwalk, which is located in the historic Alamo National Bank. The property and it's staff are great ambassadors for the city. I'm certainly planning on going on another "Great American Get-Together". Thanks again for such a fantastic trip!
