Visiting New York had been in my "bucket list" for a long time. Since I am a solo traveler, going with Road Scholar made it possible. Our large group was divided to accommodate mobility issues. Ms. Lombardy, the leader and main guide assigned to the more mobile group, was fantastic. Our fast paced walking tours were always preceded by very informative lectures which were enhanced by the guides whose knowledge and love for New York was palpable. As the brochure explains, this tour uses the subway to arrive at all the destinations and that requires going up and down lots of stairs. To me, that adds to the excitement of being in this lively city, but for some people it might be too much ( it was really hot the week we were there, except for one day!)The location of the hotel, even though the rooms are old and very small, is a plus. The meals were excellent and plentiful(thankfully, you can walk off the calories!)This was a "taste of New York" in every way, and now that I took a bite of the "apple" I can't wait to come back to complete the meal!
