The Best of England and Wales did not disappoint. This trip exceeded my expectations by offering quality programs, presenters, and locations. My life has been greatly enriched with the beauty of the scenery and the exposure to stimulating events.


If you are interested in England and Wales, history and cherish the countryside and small towns, you will appreciate and enjoy this tour. At the same time, it provides sufficient diversity to preclude any risk of boredom.


We have never traveled and this program made it so easy!!! They take care of everything. I definitely recommend Road scholar for first time travelers out of the country and I will definitely be a return traveler.


A delightful, historically interesting program in some of the most beautiful countryside in the world.


Very professional


Our guide and all of the scholars communicated not only their knowledge, but their bone-deep love of their land. We visited castles and hamlets, watched mountain dogs train and the sun set into the Irish sea. The formal programs were just the beginning of the learning experience -- casual conversation veered from bad pub jokes to fishing regulations, volunteerism in the UK, fashion at the royal wedding, horticulture and bees, and why you don't buy "garage flowers." Enough "on your own time" to explore, but plenty of guidance. I learned from the other participants, too.


Best of England and Wales is a fine program. We got perspective on a class society, on the wealth of royalty and nobility, on the mystery of Shakespeare, on the life of a slate miner, and on the natural beauty of both England and Wales,


All our guides were excellent & up to the high standards set by Road Scholar. The ruggedness of the "Lake District" Surprised me somehow as did all the sheep--everywhere!!


This program is an excellent way to see and experience the parts of England and Wales outside of London.


This program introduces you to various parts of England which gives a fascinating overview of it's history and culture. Seeing Wales for the first time was magical!


The trip to England and Wales is delightful. We got to see many places we have dreamed about and the staff was exceedingly good. We came home refreshed and excited.


A wonderful array of places to see for those who think England = London.


I learned so much about England and Wales, didn't know much before I went. I especially enjoyed Wales and the Lake District of the UK.


Our Road Scholar tour was magnificent! Interesting people, great sites, AAA accommodations/coaches and excellent meals. We would definitely choose Road Scholar for our next adventure.


This is a first-class program for those who want to combine travel, education and fun. Everything my wife and I experience with Roads Scholar was conceived and carried out at very high standard of performance. The attention to detail - - expecially in the pre-departure stage, makes this a top travel-vacation option especially for seniors of every educational experience.
