I encourage program planners to limit number of participants. Our group of 20 was perfect. I would have been extremely unhappy to be on a hot school bus with a much larger group. It was just under the comfort level if too hot without air conditioning. It must be insufferable in August.


This program was amazing and anyone interested in the Chincoteague ponies would benefit from the knowledge learned. There is something for each generation. The kids are given their own opportunities to learn and the program is adaptable to all ages.


This was a wonderful and unique experience to share with my mother and children. We saw ponies being born, sailed alongside dolphins and visited a NASA launch site. It really was a wonderful program that let you get to know the people of Chincoteaque and their famous ponies.


The Chincoteague trip was absolutely perfect! We saw wild ponies, turtles laying eggs, bald eagles, and even a new-born foal. We romped in the ocean, mucked in the mud, and biked in the refuge. Road Scholar has put together a multi-generational program that managed to be interesting for all ages - with just the right balance of "telling, showing and doing". Cindy was an incredible tour leader, and John, Becca and Jenny added to the adventure. Along with the pint of blood we left on the island (mosquitoes are awful!) we also left a bit of our heart - and will go back again to see the wild ponies. Thank you Road Scholar!
