Enjoyable trip! January 2017


Italian Lakes: Hike, Bike & Kayak

An enjoyable trip, but I was not that enamored of the area...too many tourists!

Excellent coverage of major cities and Guizhou Province January 2017


An Oxford WWI Conference: Remembering The Great War

Road Scholar (also known as Elderhostel) offers hundreds of tours worldwide, using local tour companies, sometimes universities. I have taken RS tours to Africa, China, and France and look forward to more. This was my first "tour" of China, but my 20th visit, with the rest on business. Our guide, Mei Mei, was one of the finest I've seen on tours. We started with Beijing and continued to Xian and then to Guizhou Province for a week in this fascinating area, which was new to me. We were able to meet the people in the villages, thanks to our guide, and enjoyed the chance to see and photograph such a variety of places in China. Hotels were excellent and appropriate to this type of tour (usually centrally located and very fine). Meals were family style and always good. Road Scholar makes its tours educational and doesn't push shopping as so many commercial ones do. Touring in China is very safe. You do have a lot of walking and RS tells you this in the tour, but it seems that a great deal of the walking is in those huge airports! I recommend Road Scholar and always turn to their catalogs to choose my next trip. Read more

Wonderful tour! January 2017


Private guided Bernese Oberland Traverse

Fabulous tour company. No detail overlooked in the planning. Just returned from the full Bernese Oberland trip. It was wonderful.

Great COSMOS value November 2016


Spain, Portugal & Morocco

I am a budget solo female traveler. I have traveled with COSMOS for about 20 years in the past, all over Europe, Switzerland, Turkey, etc. The best thing is that I never have to pay extra for single supplement when I room with someone. If Cosmos can not find a room mate for you, you end up having the whole room. Because of this feature, I was able to travel everywhere by my self with reasonable price. Cosmos always provides great value for the bucks. I would do it again. I highly recommend to you all. Read more

Spectacular Greece was Spectacular November 2016


Spectacular Greece with Island Cruise

This was our 3rd trip with smarTours, and we have enjoyed every one of them. We experienced a wonderful variety of sites. There was so much to see and do on this trip. Our guides were excellent, and our tour directors, Granville and Elena, both deserve special kudos for their breadth of knowledge and for making this trip so memorable. Read more
