I was so glad I picked the Historic Triangle Sampler Tour with Road Scholar because I learned so much about the beginnings of our country since it included Jamestown and Yorktown along with Colonial Williamsburg.

Even if you have been to Williamsburg as a tourist before, you will learn so much more about it and get to see and do so much more. Do not overlook the amount of walking that is included. There are some ways to accommodate those who can not keep the pace.

This is a well planned and enjoyable program and a great introduction to the Historic Triangle. The hotel is perfectly located for sightseeing in Williamsburg and the included meals are overall very good. Our group leader was exceptional.

Wonderful mix of Williamsburg sites, and bus tour to nearby Jamestown, Yorktown and a James River plantation house. Very comfortable and well located accommodations within easy walk to all Williamsburg sites. Additional presentations of colonial music, history were very informative and entertaining. A great value since so much is included.

This Williamsburg, VA program was wonderful. The activities were varied so there was something for all to enjoy. The accommodations were wonderful, food great and the highlight for me was a visit to the vault in Jamestown!

This is an outstanding trip. Bunny, our group leader, has been with Colonial Williamsburg for many years and knew so much about the period history as well as the development of Colonial Williamsburg itself. In addition, she is a wonderful story teller and used inventive ways to communicate the history and get everyone involved in the activities. The program participants seemed to get along well together, which I think reflects on the talents of our leader. Our trips to Jamestown and Yorktown were very interesting. And everyone seemed to enjoy winery tour and wine-tasting. The other program lecturers and musicians were excellent -- which made for a well-rounded program. Our hotel was right in Colonial Williamsburg, so it was easy to explore during our free time. We were given a length-of-stay pass to Colonial Williamsburg that allowed us into all the buildings, museums, etc. There was a lot going on in Colonial Williamsburg in the evenings, so it was fun to be right there. The accommodations were comfortable, the hotel staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the meals we ate at the hotel were enjoyable. Our meals outside of the hotel were also quite good. Colonial Williamsburg has restaurants in all price ranges, so we had lots of choices for the couple of meals that were not part of the program. If you have any interest in the Williamsburg, Jamestown, & Yorktown area and history, I would highly recommend this program.

I cannot recommend this program highly enough. Our group leader, Bunny, was energetic, fun and knowledgeable. The speakers were extraordinary--experienced, clear communicators that knew their subjects and presented them in "character." The variety of speakers added to the experience. The hotel food was surprisingly good--lots of healthy, tasty options. Although I had been to Williamsburg before, this tour far exceeded my expectations.
