WHAT OUR TRAVELERS SAY

This trip was beyond my wildest dreams. Perfect in every way. 

- Elizabeth T.

Should you wish to capture the indescribable beauty of the Hudson River Valley and view the lyrical interpretation of it by some of America's most revered artists while learning from excellent scholars, on a relaxing river cruise, this is the tour for you. 

- Leslie W.

I loved the tour so much that 3 days after we returned home I signed up my husband and myself for another trip. 

- Ann B.

One of the most interesting and beautiful trips I have ever taken. 

- David G.

The trip included history, natural beauty, art, and architecture! Plus we got meet some amazing fellow travelers. For all these reasons, we truly loved the experience.

- Ann K.

Art Along the Hudson is a core trip in the Smithsonian Journeys repertory. Jason LaFountain brings not only a detailed survey of the Hudson River School painters but elegantly weaves contemporary thought and artists into his lectures and commentary. The trip was a mini-masterclass in art history and criticism. If you thought you knew the Hudson River valley, think again. This trip will reset your sights on the treasures just outside New York.

- Claire D.
