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.

Anyone going on this Trip on Sept. 29th?

John Viera Aug 14, 2014 at 01:59 PM

Antone registered on the 9/8 trip? This will be our first on RS.

Cathy Owen Aug 07, 2014 at 03:22 PM

I am thinking of going on the 9/15 trip and it will be my first RS trip. Was also considering doing the RS hiking trip in the Canyonlands instead. Reactions? Suggestions?

Bob Retsema Jul 21, 2014 at 02:23 PM

Bob Retsema: I am enrolled for this trip (8727-Sept 15-25), and am interested in a potential roommate.

Does anyone know if this trip includes Antelope Canyon? I don't see it on the itinerary but "Elaine" has uploaded photos from there on this site. Anyone know, please?
Roberta Hung Jun 13, 2014 at 02:37 PM

No. But a couple in my 2013 group arranged through the guides to to to Antelope Canyon at additional expense by bus in lieu of the lake cruise and rainbow arch. There is another tour that goes to Antelope Canyon in lieu of the Grand Canyon North Rim.

Thanks! I will definitely look into these options.

We are registered for the June 2nd trip. This will be our first Road Scholar trip. Any packing suggestions? When do we receive our information from the company about such things?

Anyone registered for the September 18 trip?
Carolynn Bramlett Jun 25, 2014 at 11:17 AM

I registered last week and am looking forward to it. I'm also looking for anyone traveling from So Calif who might want to carpool to St. George.

Kenneth Doine Mar 10, 2014 at 10:03 AM

This will be my first RS trip, going June 2nd to 10th
Roberta Hung Mar 31, 2014 at 10:25 AM

Excellent choice for 1st RS trip. Staff and fellow travelers were great. There were long stretches on the bus, but the driver was the best. Food was ok, the usual buffet fare. I opted for the more challenging route at Bryce and was glad. Temperature was dry 90s so keep hydrated and dress cool. Wear sneakers rather than sandals as some hiking trails are on sand or stone. You will enjoy this trip.
