Itinerary
Day 1:

As soon as we arrived in Tenochititlan, I was awestruck. The scene was something out of a textbook; except, it was real! Being a historian, I really felt like I was a part of this ancient civilization! The canoe excursion was phenomenal. Harvesting on the lake was something that I have never done before. The Aztecs were brilliant in their idea of growing crops with Chinampas. The food was interesting. The tamales were homemade and tasted like traditional Aztec food. Learning Hieroglyphics and how to make masks was very difficult and although it was fun to learn, I found it a real challenge. Ancient Aztecs really don’t have the comfortable living spaces that we are used to, but they make do with what they have. Overall the first day of being in Tenochititlan was a great introduction to the ancient civilizations. ~Reported from Mary Wilson
Day 2:

Waking up in 700 ancient Mexico with a traditional breakfast was awesome! We also had the opportunity to visit the children in their schools and experience some of their projects and what they learned. Trading is something that we don’t do in North America in 2013, but we do know that it was very important in ancient times. Watching and joining in with the trading was so cool. Terrace farms were really interesting. We got to see how they farmed on the hillside and we also were able to use the Pontoon bridges to take a trip to the mainland. The game of Tlachtli was very sad to watch and I am glad that we no longer participate in such games. The temple of the Jaguar was quite a sight. We automatically got the sense that this structure was really important. The whole time in Mexico was a great experience for our kids and we were glad that we had the chance to not only watch, but live for two days with the Ancient Aztecs. ~Reported from the Howard family
Day 3:

My sister and I are really into animals and we appreciated the time we spent caring for the llamas in Peru. After learning some of the common crafts of the Incans, we travelled through the Amazon Jungle with our guide and were able to see how the natives value it in their different ways. We actually got to see an elder create a medicine from the Clavillia plant. It was interesting to watch the religious ceremonies and we particularly enjoyed going through the Andes Mountains.
~Reported from Sarah Roberts and her sister Jennifer
Day 4:

During our last day in the Ancient South American Empires, we walked through the Coastal Desert. It was really dry and deserted and I was more than relieved to break for lunch. The rest of the people in my group were pretty excited about everything and they were all talking about the event that was planned for after lunch. I didn’t really take a good look at the itinerary and I was kind of lost as to what they were talking about. Hiking up the Incan trail did not seem as exciting to me as it did to them. Although it was tiring, what came after was so worth the long journey. Here before us was the ancient Machu Picchu site. We had the chance to help construct it! It was incredible! I had the opportunity to work on the “royal section.” We learned the building methods of the Incans. This was definitely the highlight of my trip!~Reported from Richard Sullivan
Day 1:

I live in Europe, and I understand that the crusades have changed our European lives. This is why I was interested in being apart of the “People’s Crusade” that was featured in this travel package. Before I left for the trip, I researched the crusade and learned about Peter the Hermit, but I did not learn about Walter the Penniless. But what better way to learn about him, than to be there with him and his group during the crusade? The mill fires were devastating and those were just in the beginning of the journey. After travelling along for a while, I began to realize that the crusades involved brutal fights and that it really was a big deal in our history. I’m glad I went and I recommend that you go too. It will change the way you think about the crusades from when you learned about them in you History Classes at school. Nothing can prepare you for the experience of actually marching in a crusade.
~Reported from Martha Graham
Day 1:

Personally, I thought that the crusades were awful and I do not think that religion is something to fight over. So going on the excursion with Peter the Hermit and Walter the Penniless did not sound appealing to me. Actually being a part of the crusade was eye opening for me and I discovered that everyone who was in this crusade was very firm in what they were fighting for; people died for this. Although it was brutal to watch, this experience was something that I am glad I decided to do. The food was not very spectacular and it was not something that people enjoy while on vacation. I would have preferred more exploring time as I felt that everything was strictly scheduled and I didn’t have enough time to look around myself. Other than that, I had a great trip.
~Reported from Anthony Harris.

My husband and I are so inspired by what we saw today. We are Protestant Christians and have learned so much about Martin Luther before going on this trip. However, Luther making history right before our eyes was truly remarkable. His lecture on theology this morning was so intelligent and fascinating. I even saw the original document stating The 95 Theses! We were so honoured to be in the presence of Martin Luther himself. We are so grateful for everything Luther has done. This has definitely been the highlight of our trip so far and we are so excited for another day
in the Reformation tomorrow!

Day 2:
Eralines Travel Agency Advertisement Video
I’ve never been on a trip like this one, and I must say the Reformation was pretty exciting. I learned so many new things about Christianity and the amazing man Martin Luther. He stood up for what he believed in and made history. It certainly takes bravery for a small German monk to fight against the powerful Roman Church. In the end, it was really cool to see how Luther influenced the German princes. The food I certainly would not give five stars, but the experience itself deserves a ten out of ten. Overall, this part of the trip was really fascinating and I’m so
glad I got to experience it.

Day 1:
Our family decided to travel with Eralines for our annual family vacation. We are so glad we did because we’ve been having such a great time, especially in the Renaissance. We just finished an exciting day looking at several pieces of beautiful art and the kids still haven’t settled down. I’ve never seen them so eager to learn in my entire life. Seeing Leonardo da Vinci’s painting of the Last Supper before it started to fade was really enjoyable. The colours are so bright and the details are unbelievable. The House of Medici really got the kids excited. It was so large and there seemed to be artwork everywhere you looked. It was a real honour to sit down with some of the Medici’s for a cup of tea. My children are eager to make their own artwork tomorrow and I am so glad to see how much they are enjoying themselves. Well, I've got to go get ready for tomorrow, it’s sure to be a fun-filled day!
-Reported by Lilith Gallagher and the rest
of her family
Day 2:
I really enjoyed myself while touring the Renaissance today. I have always enjoyed observing art but this was more spectacular than any art gallery I have ever been to (and I’ve been to quite a few). I was completely awestruck by the Sistine Chapel ceiling. It’s so detailed. I also had a wonderful time meeting the one and only Leonardo da Vinci. He wasn’t super friendly but he did have some great sketches for us to look at. I found the two Donatello sculptures of David pretty fascinating and had a great time hearing other people’s opinions. To top it all off, we created our own artwork while experimenting with different paints. I had a good laugh over my unrealistic drawing of one of my fellow tourists and was delightfully surprised when a local bought it off me. I’m not looking forward to leaving the Renaissance, it has been a real blast!
-Reported by James Donald
Day 1 & 2:
I visted Rome through Eralines with my best friends Miki and Peaches. We booked the Ultimate Package and it was worth it! Watching the gladiator battle was a little gory but an overall interesting experience. Attempting to learn a little bit of Greek was very difficult but fun at the same time. We even had the honor to enjoy dinner with Emperor Augustus! Cooking a traditional Roman meal and touring historical sites was very fun. I especially enjoyed experiencing sleeping and 'living' in roman villas!
They were very roomy and
accommodated our basic needs.

Witnessing Issac Newton discover gravity was like being a part of history, it was truly memorable. I also loved how we were given plenty of down and relaxation time to take a break from meeting so many people. I bought tons of souvenirs and made lots of new friends! The complimentary Eralines yoga instructor was very professional and highly trained. She knew exactly what she was doing and was a very good teacher. I was so relaxed! It was a very cool experience to sleep in special Eralines Hotel Tents. They're basically fancy, spacious tents exclusively from Eralines! They include their own mini living room, master bedroom and tent lock to secure your belongings. The highlight of the trip was attending Tycho Brahe's dinner party. It was very fun and a great way to meet other people. Everybody had a great time dancing and enjoying 'fancy' food. Eralines was right, this
really is the trip of a lifetime.

~Reported from Tyler Brady
Touring the Medieval Ages was such an exciting experience! I'm all about knights and jousting, so when I learned about this trip from Eralines, I knew I'd have to go. I'm enjoying this trip with my best friends Jake and Kyle. Being able to witness Christopher Columbus setting off on his voyage was very cool. We also had a great time watching a historical jousting tournament. There were 40 knights all playing to win over the daughter of Duke Philip of Burgundy! She had lots of options, but showed most interest in this guy who I had seen her talking to earlier. He actually won the tournament, and the girl seemed very happy. Jake, Kyle and I spent some time touring the marketplace and enjoyed some great food! Kyle really enjoyed attending the knighting ceremony, and Jake really liked the celebration feast. It was a great time to mingle with the crowd, and we had lots of fun! Observing the monasteries and religious rituals wasn't the most exciting, but it was the most interesting. We learned lots from observing. My favorite part of the trip was having the opportunity to tour the Tower of London, and actually spending the night there! It was such an experience being able to camp out in a historical site! The view from the tower was breathtakingly beautiful and the other guest travelers had some great moments with us! We were always playing games and telling each other about ourselves, and by the end we were a big family of
friends and were sad to say bye to each other and bye to the medieval
times. I will never forget this trip.
