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.
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group programs.
EasyFor people looking to exercise their minds more than their bodies. There’s 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.

Anyone have experience enrolling in on of these programs as a single and allowing Road Scholar to assign a roommate to save $?
Carolynn Bramlett Feb 22, 2014 at 06:35 PM

Hi Rosemary: I did this last year and it worked out very well. I made a new friend and we got along just fine. I plan to do it again this year when I sign up for my trip.
Rosemary Anderson Feb 22, 2014 at 06:52 PM

Ellen, Im booked on the 4 - 10 june trip, traveling from San Antonion, Tx. I'm interested in sharing shuttle.
Ellen Richardson Feb 28, 2014 at 04:08 PM

Carol, I arrive 6/4 @ 12:03 PM.. My return flight, 6/10 is very early, 8 AM. Hope we can work out sharing shuttle for one or both ways.
carol singleton Feb 28, 2014 at 07:13 PM

Ellen, I arrive at 11:07am so we could share shutte on way to hotel. I leave really early, 6am on the 10th. You probably will not want to go that early. Atleast we can share one way
Ellen Richardson Feb 28, 2014 at 07:25 PM

Great. My return flight is @ 8 am (thought I'd have to leave by 6 am) so we can probably work that out, too. I will call Road Scholar and have them send you my e-mail so we can plan .

Revised post:
I'm arriving Monday, Sept. 22 at 3pm and would like to share 2 extra nights in the hotel with another woman, and the shuttle with anyone else interested.

Fredda Seidenbaum Feb 02, 2014 at 04:32 PM

I'm arriving Sept.23 and would like to share an extra night in the hotel (with another woman), and the shuttle as well.

Please contact me if interested. Thanks.
