6 Days | 5 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Easy
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.
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.

Marilyn McCredie

This, plus her own rich experience, is the basis for most of her storytelling. She is a debunker of myths and a dispeller of stereotypes regarding mountain people. Her depth of knowledge and her skillful presentation have led her to be called “a cultural ambassador.”

She holds a bachelor’s of music education from Murray State University in Kentucky and a master’s from Western Carolina University.
