Road Scholar Tours

I went on my first Road Scholar Tour.  On the basis of one tour I highly recommend them.  The tour was fantastic.

During my 50+ year marriage to Bob, we only went to Europe once, on a cruise, for our 50th anniversary.  For some reason, my husband just didn't want to visit Europe, prior to the cruise.  The cruise gave him a taste of what we'd been missing, and he changed his mind.  Now that I'm alone, I decided that using a highly recommended tour company was the way to go.

This company has been around since 1975 and visits all 50 states and 150 countries.  I knew that I wanted to visit Europe, and when the terrorist bombed Paris, I decided I had to go to France!

The tour I picked is Three Faces of France: Paris, Lyon and Provence.  It was 13 days, 12 nights and 27 meals.  We stayed at 3 hotels, we traveled on the TGV, the high-speed train, and by motor coach.  We also used the metro, bus and subway system in Paris and Lyon.  Four times we were able to have dinner on our own, so we did some extra exploring.  The arranged meals were fantastic.  Breakfast was at the hotel, lunch and dinner menus were arranged by a pair of sisters.  These sisters arrange all the meals for all the tours in France.

I've already booked a tour for next year.  I've decided to visit Spain in 2017 with Road Scholar.  I'm also visiting Iceland next year with my sister, we're using a different tour company.  I'll let you know what I think of that company, after the tour.

Thanks for stopping by and sharing my life with me,
