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!

This was an absolutely magical trip! Not only was everything was so organized and delightful, but our leader, Cindy, was a captivating storyteller with an encyclopedic knowledge of everything about Chincoteague and Assateague. We had a broad range of children's ages (7 to 16) but they clicked well under Cindy's gentle leadership. The mud mucking was a highlight - not as messy as it sounds but so much fun for everyone! It was just the right mixture of learning, activity and down time to get to know each other at the hotel pool - absolutely perfect!
