While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
Love to learn in a small-group setting? This collection of programs has at most 10-24 participants.
See our Small Group 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.

JD - did you go? Did you enjoy it? I am waiting for my tax check to place a deposit for this September. I also need shoe/boot advice!

Just got a notice that you had posted a message! Months later...not sure why. It was wonderful, and I wore winter walking boots with a small heel ...the only boots I had. Worked fine. Hope you have or have had as grand a time!

Jane Desmond Aug 12, 2013 at 10:24 AM

Hello Everyone! I was on the waiting list and just got in. How exciting to be able to do this so soon

If you have any suggestions for footwear with a heel as they suggest, please let me know. I am a novice and don't really own any riding boots.

Looking forward to this adventure!

i cannot wait to meet "my". horse in a couple of weeks. It's exciting but must confess to some nerves.
