Program #21382RJ
6 Days | 5 Nights
Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular 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.

I've attended at least 10 times before and will no longer use Roads Scholar for it. The program this year was tooo early View a film at 8 m and then another shortly after. The hotel was too big and long walk to a dreary dining room with poor food. The fun was taken out of the program for me. The films are always wonderful That's what the PSFF offers. THe staff of RS was wonderful the hotel employees were great, it was just the organization that was poor. Every time I had a negative comment the blame was placed "on the festival" I will not do this one again. It is more difficult to do it on you r own but if I have to that is what I will do. Sorry

This was our 7th PS Film Festival with Roads Scholar (Elderhostel). I believe it was the best in that the films presented are an even higher dimension. My one regret was that the we couldn't use the 3 extra vouchers on the films we requested as they were already sold out. I am wondering if there is a way to find out the films we are seeing before we get there so that we may sign up for additional ones before we arrive.

Five fascinating days in a warm and sunny paradise with brilliant movies from all over the world (even Saudi Arabia!)to see and discuss over lunch and dinner tables with lively and involved people. Never a dull moment with great leadership and every detail of the festival thought thru and provided! I'm going again.

If you love movies this is a wonderful trip to take. It is also a great opportunity to meet up with your friends from different parts of the country, walk, hike and have lively discussions
