ChallengingGet ready to keep up with our highest-energy group. These demanding — and rewarding — programs are for seasoned outdoor enthusiasts.

My husband and I highly recommend this program. Our leader, Rene Oliva, was outstanding and attentive to all our needs. Our lecturers and guides were all informative as well as entertaining. Our hotels were centrally located, and all the places we visited were beautiful and fascinating. There were so many little pleasures connected to this trip which our information packet could not begin to describe: the orange blossom-scented streets of Cordoba, the Tuna musicians who entertained at dinner, the little Cervantes Museum which we discovered at a rest stop, the fantastic armor collection at the Royal Palace in Madrid, the snow-covered Sierra Nevada Mountains...The list goes on and on.

Just returned from Pathways of Culture trip to Spain and had an oustanding experience. Saw fabuluous art museums, beautiful cathedrals and chapels, and alcazars.
Visited the tombs of Ferdinand and Isabella who had such a profound effect on Spainish history. The Alhambra in Granada and the Mezquita in Cordoba were
terrific. Seville was a beautiful city; in the Cathedral saw the sarcophagus of Columbus and a chapel devoted to the men who circumnavigated the world with Magellan. Group leaders were most conscientious; local guides were personable and knowledgeable; lectures by professionals were extremely informative. Great food-at the Olive Oil museum in Jaen, had one of the best meals ever on a Road Scholar trip. If you love art, history, and learning about some great cultures, this trip is for you.
