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.

My husband and I are planning on taking our granddaughter (13) and grandson(11) on this trip next year. Curious about how many boys attend and how they fare. Donna Falk

Hi Carole Johnson, Mary Campbell and Jerry Rosenberg. How nice to be connected before we all leave. Carole and I have exchanged several emails about our granddaughters, hers is Paige and mine is Maisie, and they will both turn 11 in September, and we are all so looking forward to the excursion. Maisie and I and my husband, Charlie, are arriving in Paris on Friday morning, July 18th, because we have French friends who live in Marly-le-Roi, a Paris suburb near Versailles, and we are going to spend Saturday visiting with them before the program starts. We can't wait to meet all of you. Thanks for checking in. Myra Wrubel

Mary Campbell Jul 08, 2014 at 01:32 PM

Jerry Rosenberg, My great-niece, Anna and I, both from Detroit, will be in Paris for the July 20th program. We're leaving July 19th on Delta Flight DL98. If you're on the same plane, we'll see you then. If not, we'll see you in Paris. I'm looking forward to meeting all of you.
Myra Wrubel, I'm also looking forward to meeting you and your granddaughter.
Carole Johnson Jul 08, 2014 at 05:23 PM

Mary, I will be joining the group on that date. We are leaving Atlanta at 5 pm on Saturday. Arriving Paris about 8am on Sunday. Have already talked to Myra and am looking forward to the trip and the company.

Karen Kniffin Jun 25, 2014 at 04:08 PM

My granddaughter Nelle Kniffin and I will be on the trip from 7/12 to 7/20. She will be 12 in November. The trip sounds perfect!

Will look for you Doris. Apparently RS is only going to try for a look at Fireworks in the evening. If you have plans to try for other things, I might join you. We get to Villa Pantheon on July 11 to have a couple of days to chill and check out the neighborhood. Charlotte Cronin and Jack McLay
Doris Spencer Jun 27, 2014 at 09:19 PM

We also have planned to arrive a day early. We will definitely be around on July 11 and 12, and are remaining at the hotel til the 16th. We have no definitely plans for Bastille Day. I thought we would take in the parade, and would love to have company if you want to join us. We also would like to do see the fireworks -- Check for us at the front desk after you get in.

Kelly Espy Jun 23, 2014 at 05:54 PM

My granddaughter, named Ellie and myself, Kelly Espy are booked for the July 12th program. She is just turning 10 and very excited to communicate with others that are scheduled for the same trip. We live in the Northern Virginia area.

Rosette Strubel Jun 21, 2014 at 03:09 PM

Anyone going on the Paris program leaving on June 28th and arriving in Paris on June 29th?

Doris Spencer Jun 19, 2014 at 10:56 PM

My 10 year old granddaughter and I are on the July 5 to 13 trip but are staying at the Villa Pantheon til July 16. We too are excited about being in Paris for Bastille Day.

Hello, I have had some difficulty managing how I get to this space. Glad I found it. I am attending the July 13-20 trip to Paris with my grandson Jack, who will be 10. We are Canadians and I am interested to know if there is another 'boy' on the trip. He is not worried about it, nor am I, but I understand this does cater to female participants. We are very excited to be in Paris for Bastille Day.

Sorry, I see my name is not listed. I am Charlotte Cronin from Victoria, BC Canada, bringing Jack McLay from Ottawa, Canada
