Meet Our Experts



Road Scholar's expert lecturers and group leaders create exceptional educational opportunities for you by contributing their extensive knowledge about the culture, heritage and history of the places you're visiting. They are both authorities on your destination and lifelong learners themselves who are excited to answer your questions, hear your opinions and share your experience.

On our educational programs you will be led by people such as:

Karlyn Bunting


Karlyn Bunting grew up in Page, Arizona, after the construction of Glen Canyon Dam – at the heart of what is commonly called the Grand Circle.

Karlyn is also an avid photographer and storyteller, and enjoys sharing his unique and multi-faceted perspective of the Colorado Plateau.
