"The alumni travel program has provided a safe, pleasant way to travel to places we have longed to see, but wouldn't attempt to do on our own."
Ellen Wilson NUR'64 and Lawrence Wilson (MED '55), Cruising the Baltic Sea and the Norwegian Fjords.

"This delightful and extremely well organized tour provided a wonderful opportunity for my brother and me to reacquaint ourselves with the part of England we emigrated from nearly 50 years ago, and to introduce one of the loveliest parts of the country to my brother's wife, who had never been to England before this. The guides and bus driver were well informed and very helpful, enhancing the overall experience. Accommodations and meals were excellent." 
Suzanne Palmer (FSM '63, GRS '70, EXDM '98), Village Life in England's Cotswolds 

"Very well organized; tour directors were excellent - professional and helpful. Tours were of varied topics and enjoyable. Great trip!" 
Aileen Broider (FSM '72) and Jeff Broider, Legendary Passage

"Our campus director was a special asset. He seemed to really enjoy the job and was tireless in meeting all our needs and interjecting small favors to please us. Our lecturers and guides were extremely well informed and easily understood. An exceptional value!" 
Pat Leimbach (FSM '49), Alumni College in Provence

"Impressed with all travel elements. Guides in Florence, Pompeii/Sorrento and Rome sites were all excellent - great knowledge and personality. Enjoyed the traditional meals in Florence and Pompeii. Bus driver was great - don't know how he avoided all the cars and scooters in Rome and still stayed so calm. The ride on the Eurostar train to Florence was a treat! We're definitely impressed with AHI. We like the use of upscale hotels conveniently located for use as a base. Day trips without hotel changes or carrying luggage are preferable, which is what made this trip very enjoyable. Trip was a good value!" 
Dennis Plank (ADL '69) & Jane Plank, Rome Escapade

"The Crystal Line certainly deserves its fine reputation. I would be interested in trips with them in the future."
