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.

Yea! Final packet just emailed for the October 18 group. Does anyone know how large the group is? Can't wait to be there!

See the comments below re Road Scholar's policy on tipping. Tips ARE included in the cost of your trip-a REAL NICE FEATURE of RS trips. At the end of our trip we DID tip our RS leader (beyond RS expectations or that of the leader). We felt his work was exceptional. We did so in Euros--far more convenient for the French locals.We found Euros readily accessible from the local ATMs.

Laurie Travers Sep 12, 2014 at 07:15 PM

We were wondering about the appropriate way to tip our leader and the experts. Should we bring US currency? Are euros preferred? Any advice about tipping would be appreciated. Thanks.
Gregory Osborne Sep 12, 2014 at 07:29 PM

It's my understanding that tipping is included.
Sarah "Sally" Everett Sep 12, 2014 at 09:08 PM

There's a section on Tipping in the prelim. materials. It's included for guides, drivers, etc.
