This was my first Road Scholar trip. As a solo traveler, I was curious to see if it would be a good way to travel safely. As it turned out, I had a wonderful time. Our group leaders, Pat and Paul Barber were terrific. Very knowledgeable and friendly and definitely organized! Our tour group was great. Everyone was welcoming, I never felt like I was traveling alone! The sites were beautiful (helped by great weather!) and we did get to see a lot of wildlife. I think the Grand Tetons were my favorite, although I did enjoy each location and learned a lot about each site. It is a very full week with some long days, but very informative. I will definitely look forward to trying other RS programs and hope they live up to this first experience!

Lots of sights in a short period of time! It was great, and our leaders, Pat and Paul Barber were delightful! Loved our bus driver, Corey, too!

This program enables you to adequately tour many of the major sites in S.Dakota and Wyoming including Mt. Rushmore, Crazy Horse, Yellowstone, Grand Tetons, and Devils Tower along with great scenery and museums. There is a lot of time on the bus by necessity but if you can only make one tour of the area,this is the one for you.
