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.

Going on the July 19-25 trip but plan on flying in either before or staying after--any suggestions of things to do?

Maude Buszek Jul 19, 2014 at 10:20 AM

Anyone staying a few days after and want to take some hikes?

Debbie Clifford Jul 05, 2014 at 07:26 AM

Airline cancelled one flight into St John's today. Will leave soon for airport, should get in after midnight. On CBC, I see lots of power outages and flooding. Is this program still a go?

The Grand Manan trip is our first with Road Scholar. Do people tend to dress for dinner in the hotel?
Helen Sternheim Jun 15, 2014 at 05:23 PM

The Grand Manan trips are pretty informal. I know we didn't dress for dinner when attending programs there.
Rich Roy Jan 26, 2015 at 04:23 PM

...well, we did put on some clothes... smile!

That culinary program I mentioned starts on the 24th and the Grand Manan program ends on the 23rd.

Barbara Shannon May 27, 2014 at 02:39 PM

We are attending the Aug. 17 program in Grand Manan and then the Culinary program in Passamaguaddy Bay. Any suggestions as to the best way to get to Eastport from Grand Manan or maybe St. John?
