7 Days | 6 Nights
ACTIVITY LEVEL: Moderately Challenging
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.
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.

This was a total week of adventure for my grandson and I. It met and exceeded both of our expectations in every way. The accommodations were more than adequate and very conveniently located. The food was great. There was a variety of healthy choices at every meal, every thing was fresh and the quality was top notch. Everyday the activities were first class, well planned, organized and full of adventure. All of this was made possible because of the leaders, Kathleen, Jordan & Adam. They took a personal interest in all participants, made everyone feel at ease from the very start and shared their enthusiasm for the activities. This program created memories that my grandson & I will cherish forever!!!

This program was absolutely wonderful. My 2 grandchildren didn't want to come home! What an adventure! Exciting activities, extraordinary lodging, and out-of-this world food were just the beginning. Our program leaders were "tops" in every way, working hard to make our trip enjoyable and memorable. I would take this trip again in a minute.

What a great trip!! We had a wonderful time. The guides were all great - especially the man who told us all the Olympics. Our leaders were well organized, thoughtful, and considerate...and very hard working!
