10 Days | 9 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Active
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.

My two grandsons loved everyminute of it! One who raises chickens wouldn't eat chicken but ate the fish.(ages 11 and 12) kept hopping every minute. Asleep at 8:00 PM and up atsunrise ready to go!More kids would have been nice but made a good friend who made them learn about themselves.They loved the zipline,crab races,pool was necessary,ocean,but to much bus riding.

Our family just got back from our first guided tour ever. To be honest I had doubts about taking a guided tour, but those doubts quickly disappeared because of the planning, preparation and mostly our incredible guides!It was FANTASTIC! I now think this is the only way to travel to a new country. Thank you Road Scholar! The Birds, ALbuquerque,NM.
