14 Days | 13 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.

Tim & I are scheduled for the Aug 13 trip we are concerned about the conflict, will we be able to get Visas?

Bev & Greg Moss Mar 06, 2014 at 09:03 AM

My husband and I and 3 other couples are considering this trip for 2015. In light of the current Ukraine-Russia conflict, will these excursions be suspended until such time as the conflict is resolved?
Elizabeth Miller Mar 16, 2014 at 08:43 AM

I'm considering this trip for 2014 and hoping the conflict will be resolved sufficiently that travel to this part of Russia won't be affected. Time will tell. d

Harvey Cohon Jun 26, 2013 at 07:01 PM

Our visit to the Hermitage on Day 5 is scheduled for 2.5 hours. Can we extend our timeat the H? We'd be willing to not do the morning coach excursion to spend the whole day at the Hermitage.
Must we stay with the "licensed expert" or can we freeely wander the museum?

Diane Bark Jun 02, 2013 at 07:40 PM

My friend, Mary, and I are taking our first trip to Russia and Road Scholar. We are flying in on July 17th. Looking forward to meeting everyone!

Debby Palmer May 01, 2013 at 06:37 PM

Tom and I are arriving in St Petersburg on June 6th, 2013. We are very excited. We are wondering if we should be concerned about sea sickness. Any thought?

Bette Perman Apr 08, 2013 at 07:10 PM

My Partner Barbara and I will be flying from Portland Oregon through Amsterdam to the July Russia Riverboat trip. We have been on one previous (US) Road Scholar trip. Also one time in St. Petersburg on a previous Baltic Sea cruise. When I look up the M/S RUSS the rooms look very small... we are excited for the trip to start.
Susan Sumeri Apr 08, 2013 at 08:29 PM

Bette - my husband and I were on the trip last June. You will learn so much and see so much. Yes, the cabins are small, as most boats' cabins are but adequate. You have very little time to spend in your cabin as you are touring most of the day. The one day we had a longer cruise we were up on deck. The food was outstanding - better than either of the hotels we stayed at. Besides the overall guide - you will have a local guide at each of the towns. We flew in two days early to reduce jet lag and see more. Susan
