6 Days | 5 Nights
Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular 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.

Our program begins April 19. We will be at one of the airports; Brunswick, Jacksonville or Savannah on the 19th. Have not purchased air tickets yet. Anyone arriving at one of these airports on the 19th and willing to share the shuttle for big savings? DeForest, Wisconsin 608 846 5533

Hi Linda, my wife (also Linda) and I are arriving in Athens a day early to visit friends and get some rest prior to the departure of the tour. We are also staying over three extra nights in Venice at the end. We are flying from Washington Dulles.

My wife and I are taking the Feb 22-27 program. Anyone else?

I'm doing the January 25 tour, traveling from Alaska to Jacksonville. Looking for another independent traveler to share transportation from Jacksonville to St Simons Island. (I see that the charge for A2B Transport is for up to two people.)
Jeanne Fischer Jan 15, 2015 at 04:50 PM

Now I have a reservation for Sunday 1/25 at 11:30 a.m. from a Jacksonville Airport hotel to St Simons Island. Is there anyone on the tour who would like to share that ride from Jacksonville?
Chris Lewis Jan 15, 2015 at 05:30 PM

Jeanne - My wife and I are arriving in Jacksonville at around noon on Sunday 1/25. We are renting a car at the airport. Would you like a ride to St. Simons Island?

Michael Groves Dec 16, 2014 at 07:40 PM

We are doing the Mar 1 tour. We live in Louisiana. This will be our 7th RS tour and all have been wonderful.

This will be our first Road Scholar program from Feb 15-20. We have started on the reading list with the Eugenia Price trilogy. We would love to hear from any others on this trip.

We will be attending our first program during the last weekend in October and wondering if any special items we should bring and we hope become acquainted with and other planning to attend the program.
