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.

Harry Stewart and I are in the May 15th group. We live near Denver. We leave May 1 for a transatlantic cruise into Barcelona from NJ. After 3 nights in BCN we will fly into CDG to meet you all on the 16th. We were at the cemetery, Utah and Omaha on Sept 1st last year. I haven't been to Paris since 1987. Kathy Blatt

After my previous post, I looked at our daily itinerary. Did any one know the hotels have been changed? Also, we will be going to Mont Ste Michel on Sun, with other visits also re-arranged.
Sandra Willis Mar 14, 2015 at 01:19 PM

Yes, I received letter about hotel change in Paris. Heard a story on PBS about record high tides in 2015 at Mont Ste Michel.
Kathy Blatt Mar 22, 2015 at 11:09 AM

Kathy Blatt Mar 22, 2015 at 11:11 AM

We saw pictures of the high tides last night on tv. We are getting excited, as we leave in about 40 days for Newark.

Thomas Metzler Feb 14, 2015 at 11:39 AM

Going on the May 15 to 28th with my wife. We are arriving at CDG on UA915 and were curious if anyone else on the tour was on the flight. I did visit the beaches in 2005 with my dad who was a US Navy higgins boat coxswain at Utah beach.
Sandra Willis Feb 28, 2015 at 11:30 PM

Yes, I am booked on UA915 departing Dulles on May 15th. I am single, I grew up in Maryland but moved to Oregon years ago. I will fly from Portland to DC a few days early and visit with friends and family. It breaks up the flight time and time change for me. This will be my first visit to France. Sandy Willis, Corvallis, Oregon
Thomas Metzler Mar 01, 2015 at 10:21 AM

Hi Sandra, We arrive from Tulsa, OK about 1 hour before the flight. Hope to see you at the gate. This is my second trip to France and my wife's first. Looking forward to meeting you.

Margaret Prentice Feb 09, 2015 at 09:08 AM

I can't begin to imagine how rich your trip will be with your father on these hallowed beaches. And how rich he will make it for everyone else with you - including your trip director and Normandy guide. I envy you all! This is the trip of a lifetime and my husband and I frequently look back at the wonderful experiences we had.

Patricia Alford Feb 08, 2015 at 11:53 PM

Would love to hear from anyone else on the June 14-27, 2015 tour.

I am taking this tour, now, before I lose my Dad (now 93) who landed at Utah Beach. It will give us something to talk about because, with his Alzheimer's, he remembers the war better than current happenings!

I will be flying from Richmond, VA, by way of Atlanta.

Paula Jacobson Jan 26, 2015 at 09:29 AM

Job very well done by RS...don't miss this experience. Loved it all and would do it all again. It's for real WWII enthusiasts as my husband is and for accompanying spouses who love to travel.
The cruise along with the stops made in upper Normandy were well chosen.

Fred Bloom Oct 11, 2014 at 03:47 PM

Yes, Delta flt on A. F arriving at 8:10 a.m., flt number 8606. fred bloom, Sarasota
Sue Leta Oct 12, 2014 at 12:18 PM

We are on AF #681 arriving also at 8:10 a.m. Look forward to meeting you and other members of our group.

Sue Leta Oct 11, 2014 at 10:48 AM

Anyone on the Oct. 18 program flying AF out of Atlanta to Paris?
Sarah "Sally" Everett Oct 11, 2014 at 12:08 PM

One Delta from ATL to Paris. Arrives at 6!am
Sarah "Sally" Everett Oct 11, 2014 at 12:09 PM

Let me try again. On delta from ATL to Paris. Arrive at 6:10 am.
Sue Leta Oct 12, 2014 at 12:27 PM

You will be arriving ahead of us, but looking forward to meeting you in Paris.

Sarah "Sally" Everett Sep 27, 2014 at 11:39 AM

Haven't received my final package for Oct 18 even though email said it was mailed a week ago? Have others received it?
Susan and David King Sep 29, 2014 at 04:46 PM

It was said it was mailed over a week ago now and still have not received anything.
Sarah "Sally" Everett Sep 29, 2014 at 07:02 PM

Mine came in today's mail.
Susan and David King Sep 30, 2014 at 09:38 PM

Got ours today.
