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.

If you think you know Texas, you don't, but you will after participating this program. You will learn about major events that shaped the state, about the people who settled there, and about some of its favorite sons. San Antonio is a wonderful city, not to be missed.

There's a lot packed into this 5-night adventure: Texas history and culture, art, lectures, field trips, shopping, Riverwalk barge cruise, varied dining venues - even a siesta if you need it! And did I mention, "Remember the Alamo?" For a great overview of everything from this area's multicultural history and the Spanish missions, to cowboys and cattle drives, to the Germans who settled in the Hill Country and a peek at LBJ's Texas Whitehouse, this experience has something for everyone.

This was an excellent program. The leaders were wonderful, and we saw a great deal of the area. The participants were friendly as well. I would not hesitate to sign up for this activity even if I were alone as several people were. I would say the average age was about 70 for most of us.
