Just came back from the Road Scholars trip to Paris and Normandy with the boat ride from Honfleur to Paris. Every aspect of the trip was well planned with so many sights to see. The first three days were spent in Paris touring most of the places I have only read about. Enjoyed visiting the Louvre and especially enjoyed the stained glass windows at St. Chappelle. All of our meals were impeccable. Especially the gourmet meals on the Seine Princess as we headed for Paris after an emotional experience visiting our "Fallen Heroes" at Normandy. Visited some small towns along the way and spent time walking through the Gardens at Giverny seeing what Monet painted in his gardens. If Paris is on the list of things for you to do and you are interested in learning about France then this is the trip to take. And if you are lucky and get Bill as your group leader, you will have a wonderful time. And, don't worry, the boat ride is smooth and for me very calming. Andy K.


A most enjoyable program that covered a lot of territory. Busy days in Paris followed by a visit to Normandy D-Day sights, then delightful boat cruise on the Seine with excellent field trips along the way. The food and wine were excellent. Bill was an excellent group leader and we had several outstanding local guides. One of the best groups I've been with, most welcoming and fun.


My first Road Scholar experience and it was a great experience. Strongly recommend it if ever considered it.


Take this tour with Pauline. One more day in Normandy and this would have been the perfect experience. Floating through Paris at night, with the Eiffel tower all aglow, enjoying another five star dinner aboard the CroisiEurope MS Seine Princess is worth the whole trip.


The Road Scholar programs are well organized, and educational to the max. I learned a lot with my participation.

This program made travel in a foreign country easy, informative and fun. I made new friends within the group and together we enjoyed and learned so much from the various tours. To our group leader,Ian, a great big "thank you" for a job very well done.


We had a fun group and a fun guide which made the whole journey a wonderful experience.


Well done. Covers all areas.


If you are interested in French history, the City of Paris, Impressionism, Normandy, this is the program for you! It's wonderful.


Thanks to Bill Snowden, our tour leader, for a great trip. It was a pleasure to see the Impressionist paintings and sites with him!
