What participants say about their Road Scholar Private Group Charter Programs

Affinity Groups
“The program was a 100% success, wonderful from beginning to end. We’re all still on a high. We saw each other at an event at the Montclair Art Museum on Friday and it was like a reunion. Everyone was still raving about it.”
Sharon, Montclair Art Museum

“The group had a GREAT time in Cuba and we want to do another program next year....every year.”
Anisha Lewis, Executive Director, Association of Black Psychologists

“Our bird club has enjoyed numerous Road Scholar charter programs – in Maine, California, Arizona, Montana, and Uruguay. All have been outstanding. Excellent organization, terrific guides and lots of friendly, helpful folks made for some great birding experiences.”
Jerry, Wimberley Birding Society

“We are a large hiking club and have chartered 12 hike-oriented Road Scholar programs so far. These programs often take us on hikes we couldn't have found for ourselves. Hikes also mean more to us because the instructors tell us about the places and things that we are seeing as we go. Our biggest problem is that these programs have gotten so popular with the membership that they fill in minutes…”
Ronald, The Cleveland Hiking Club

Class Reunions
“Our program was wonderful! We had very knowledgeable guides and we learned a lot. When our class plans its next mini-reunion, we’ll again rely on Road Scholar to do all the planning.”
Frieda, Mount Holyoke Class of 1957

Religious Organizations
“We had a fabulous time. We learned a lot, and had a lot of fun. The speakers were great, the field trips were interesting. We were going all day long, and had a wonderful time.”
Amira, Congregation Shaar Hashalom

Lifelong Learning Institutes
“Road Scholar programs are especially suited for Lifelong Learning organizations when combined with a prior overview study opportunity. This combination added a depth of understanding to our in-country lectures, home visits and cultural understanding of China.”
Lee Ann, The Plato Society

“Working with Road Scholar has been wonderful. As we plan our first charter program Road Scholar has been there every step of the way providing all things we've needed – taking care of all details, providing professional handouts, and responding to every question – no question too small. Road Scholar does the work. I take the bow. It's so easy.”
Barbara, Osher Lifelong Learning Institute

Family Charters
“Our grandchildren and grandnephews don’t get to see each other too often so this was a wonderful bonding experience for our family. And it was a great learning experience for all of us, but especially the kids. They learned about rock formations, the trees, the birds. They absorbed it all like sponges. They even earned junior ranger badges.”
Alberto, Boston, MA

“The program exceeded all their expectations. Our 6 and 8 year-old grandchildren had the most fun of all us particularly exploring the rain forest, visiting the chocolate factory and white water rafting on Río Sarapiqui.”
Marvin, Philadelphia, PA

“This activity was planned in celebration of my 80th birthday. We deliberately sought some sort of intergenerational activity – to include all 13 of us [three generations involved]. This particular program fit each of the hoped-for aspects of the program – from attention spans to age appropriate programming to ease of accessing the site, etc. As our family is widely dispersed from California to East Tennessee, this is an opportunity to still get the whole group together - and it did. ”
Elizabeth, Nashville, TN

Retirement Communities
"Our first Road Scholar program for our residents was a huge success. We had a great group of people and two of the best instructors. We're already planning another program for our residents."
Julie, Lifestyle Director, Del Webb Community

“Organizing a charter program for Del Webb residents is very easy. These people are active, natural lifelong learners, and eager travelers. They recognize quality travel experiences at good prices. Road Scholar programs sell themselves. Once hooked they become exuberant Road Scholar participants.”
Sharon, Del Webb Resident
