What do charter programs include?
Like all Road Scholar educational adventures, charter programs include:
|• || Informative lectures by leaders in their field. |
|• || Course-related field trips with special "behind-the-scenes" access. |
|• || Excursions to significant local attractions — all included in the program cost.|
|• || Enrichment activities, such as cultural events and performances.|
|• || Accommodations in comfortable, centrally located hotels, conference centers and inns. |
|• || All meals, except where specifically noted. Some programs in areas with exceptional dining options exclude a small number of meals so that participants can explore local restaurants on their own — these exceptions are noted in our program descriptions, and are never hidden. |
|• || Group transfers throughout the program. |
|• || A Group Leader to accompany you through the program to handle all logistics.|
|• || Gratuities, taxes, and destinations fees. |
|• || The Road Scholar Emergency and Travel Assistance Plan, including 24-hour assistance for medical and other emergencies.|
