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.

What day? I am arriving at San Luis Obispo on Sunday 1/25 at 2:10. Traveling by Amtrac and bus. I hope to share the shuttle.

Attending the 1/26-2/1/14 program. Am considering taking the scenic train ride from LAX or San Jose to San Luis Obispo. Is anyone else using the van service that afternoon? If so, do you want to share the cost and what time would you be leaving SLO?
Cynthia Phipps Jan 09, 2015 at 02:11 PM

Are you traveling on Sunday, Jan. 25? I am about to look into train and bus service. What can you tell me about the scenic train?
Cynthia Phipps Jan 09, 2015 at 02:12 PM

I guess I have the wrong year. Sorry.

Pamela Gosner Oct 22, 2013 at 10:55 AM

I'd like to take the Feb 5-10 program, but will need to carpool, from San Diego if possible. Anyone?

Nancy Cohen Jan 14, 2013 at 01:23 PM

I'll be taking the "Four Great Migrations" program in Cambria, CA 1/27-1/1/13. Wondering if anyone else is arriving at San Luis Obispo airport on Jan. 27 and interested in sharing cost of transportation to program site. If so, contact me at nancyc818@yahoo.com
