Program met all our expectations about getting a real good look at the Canadian Rockies. Very worthwhile excursion and beautiful country.

I have travelled all around the world, but this was so educational, and everything was prepared so it made it very easy to travel.

Not strenuous as far as walking up slopes or on trails. Gorgeous scenery everywhere. Very calming and relaxing. Would have loved to do more hiking. All instructors were very informative, but there seemed to be a lot of overlap, which may be good for retaining the information. I appreciated the way conservation is followed, and the love for the wildlife is respected.

The tour's educational component was more extensive than expected; the active component was less active than expected. I may have preferred a moderately challenging tour if it included all the locations seen in this tour.

This trip, my first one with Road Scholars, was absolutely wonderful. The mountain views,lakes and glaciers were breathtaking. The group leader and instructors were extremely knowledgeable and fun. The diverse group of participants were extremely friendly and interesting. I will definitely plan another Road Scholars trip.

A magnificent adventure particularly for those who appreciate the wonders and beauties of nature. We had an excellent and passionate guide who went out of her way to make this trip special. Great speakers! The only thing missing were sightings of bears. They must have been on vacation in Florida. We wholeheartedly recommend this trip!

An excellent program. Full days with stunning scenery. Outstanding group leaders and very enjoyable participants made the trip a winner. The Canadian Rockies are spectacular and this program gives so much exposure and experience with nature.

Our "almost all-inclusive prepaid travel" was a big time saver on the tour. As an American tourist in Canada, it was nice to not pay the usual 3% foreign currency transaction fee charged by credit cards for major expenses. Those expenses were paid by Road Scholar via our tuition.

The Canadian Rockies are an amazing part of North America! Beautiful mountains and lakes are at every turn! Do miss the opportunity to see the Canadian National Parks.

The scenery is unbelievable, raw beauty at every turn. Don't miss this incredible part of the world.

Incredible scenery, learned loads, kept very busy, not strenuous but not for the faint of heart either. Get your heart and lungs ready for the elevations!

The program was delightful and took me to one of the most beautiful places I have been in the world! I met a wonderful group of new and interesting friends from all walks of life and we have shared pictures and information. I also met a "person of interest" that I am now dating! I would say this was an especially successful trip for me!

This voyage through the Canadian Rockies from Banff to Jasper was terrific. The mountains, glaciers, forests, gondolas, and scenery were very enjoyable. The fellow travelers were very easy to speak with and we all seemed to enjoy our trip. And our Program Leader was very organized and kept us on schedule everyday. Thank you.

Excellent tour of the Canadian Rockies. Beauty at every turn. Superb lecturers and guides, with expertise, humor, energy, and a fun view of life and exploring. Wonderful meals. Fabulous scenery. Super bus driver with clean, new, comfortable bus. Trip of a lifetime!

The Banff and Jasper National Parks are more beautiful than I expected! This program gives a great introduction into the spectacular vistas of Parks Canada as well as up-close hiking opportunities . The speakers are great and very knowledgeable .

If you are able to walk and stand for a few hours a day and enjoy getting up close and personal with your travel environment, this program is a wonderful way to experience the northern Rockies.

Good trip to see Canadian Rockies. Not too much walking. Wildlife sightings are hit-n-miss. Fabulous scenery with lots of lakes and waterfalls.
