This Road Scholar "Trip of a Lifetime" for me, went well beyond my expectations. Carol, our group leader was amazing. She kept everything moving forward at a nice, sweet pace, and she was incredibly accommodating, and knowledgeable. We saw everything on our agenda, plus a few surprises. Meeting Freda Kelly, The Beatles Story museum, and the ferry boat ride down the Mercy, walking around and touching the ceiling and walls at the Casbah had this Beatles FAN speechless. Among many others these were just a few highlights in Liverpool. Jackie Spencer, our guide in Liverpool was wonderful. She kept everything SO interesting, amusing, musical, and her knowledge was boundless! Meeting Freda Kelly, The Quarrymen, The Beatles Story museum, the ferry boat ride down the Mercy, and walking around and touching the ceiling and walls at the Casbah had this Beatles fan SPEECHLESS. The Hard Days Night hotel left no “Beatles” stone unturned. The hotel, the staff, and restaurant/bar were wonderful. London was great too, and again included a handful of surprises. I especially like our tour of Abbey Road, Carnaby Road and the Royal Albert Hall. I was floating 3” above the Mercy the whole entire 8 days! JUST LOVED IT.
