While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. Minimal walking and not too many stairs.
ModerateThese programs get you on your feet and include activities such as walking up to a mile in a day through a city and standing in a museum for a few hours.
ActiveFor people who enjoy walking as much as two miles a day, perhaps to explore historic neighborhoods or a nature trail.
Moderately ChallengingFor hardy explorers who enjoy a good physical challenge, spending most of their days on the go.
ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding, and rewarding, programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

I am flying out of LAX on 7/4 (live in the San Diego area). Is anyone interested in sharing the transportation?
Jeffrey Barnouw Mar 17, 2015 at 02:02 PM

Hi Ina,I was planning on driving up to LA in the morning, leaving my car at my son's home in Bel Air. He would then driver me (or us) to the airport. Jeff My e-mail is barnouw@yahoo.com. It's simpler to use that.,

Ina F Jan 30, 2015 at 05:52 PM

Have just signed up for 7/4 (2015)departure and am interested in "meeting" and discussing things of interest with fellow travelers as this trip approaches. P.S. originating from San Diego
Jeffrey Barnouw Mar 02, 2015 at 04:30 PM

Ina, I tried to e-mail you. I'm signed up for this trip and I live in Del Mar

Barbara Tinsman May 22, 2014 at 12:41 PM

I am arriving in Venice from Denver via Philadelphia for the 6/26 trip. This is my 2nd RS trip--first time going to Europe. Look forward to hearing from others who are going at this time. Barbara

Nathan Weisbard May 05, 2013 at 07:45 AM

hi sharel. Wendy and Nate are looking forward to sharing the trip again with you. (remember Switzerland) we are taking both parts. See you there. Nate

Lorraine (Lori) McCarthy May 04, 2013 at 05:32 PM

I am very much looking forward to this program begining on June 11. This will be my first RS program. I have heard nothing but good things about RS and am confident that I will meet many interesting people. I will be traveling alone from Chicago and wondered if there would be anyone else traveling from this area to JFK and on to Venice.

We are Rans and Martha Bratton from Santa Cruz, CA. We're flying SF, NY, Athens. We're trying to figure out how to communicate with our program advisors online. Anybody figured that out? We're looking at purchasing tickets for the Guggenheim and Accademia for Monday, May 6, and wonder if we should just go ahead and do this now online. Really looking forward to that Croatian wine!

A suggestion: After logging in, go to "My Account", then go to "My Messages" then click on "Send message to Road Scholar". I hope that will work for you! See you in Athens in just two weeks!!
Martha Bratton Apr 10, 2013 at 02:13 PM

thanks, Barbara. We look forward to meeting you.
Martha Bratton Apr 10, 2013 at 02:13 PM

thanks, Barbara. We look forward to meeting you.

Received final packet and flight info and cruise info today. Appears to be 2 other RS folks on our Amsterdam to Athens flight.

Barbara Williams Apr 01, 2013 at 07:54 AM

We received flight information last week. Has anyone received their "Final Information Packet" from Road Scholar? It should include final itinerary, arrival instructions, staff biographies, luggage tags and a name tag.
Barbara Williams Apr 01, 2013 at 03:45 PM

Just spoke with Road Scholar. Final Information was sent out last week and might take as long as two weeks to arrive. Today, I received information from "Voyages to Antiquity", but everyone should also receive information from Road Scholar.
