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 trip exceeded my expectations and stands out favorably compared to other tour companies I've traveled with! Our Group Leader, Luisa, was outstanding. The lectures and lecturers were of top quality, providing the background we needed to appreciate and understand the stops along the itinerary. I loved the emphasis on Spanish art: Dali, El Greco, Velazquez, Goya, and Picasso. The food and accommodations were very good. The pace of the trip, and the balance between free time and tour time was pitch perfect. I learned so much, and I can't wait to take my next trip with Road Scholar!

This was our first trip with Road Scholar, and it certainly won't be our last. We've traveled with several other tour companies, and Road Scholar is a much better match with our intellectual interests. The lectures and emphasis on learning distinguish it from other group tours. The Group Leader, Louisa, was exceptional. We loved the balance between program time and free time. The pacing of the program and the small size of the group added to this excellent experience!

This was our first time in Europe and taking a tour. It was the most amazing trip we have ever taken. First thing we did when we got home was open the Road Scholar catalog to start planning our next adventure.

The Iberian Peninsula was an unbelievable experience. We saw history and culture of the last 2200 years. You could not help but marvel at the abilities and discoveries of people that lived centuries ago and their impact on culture today. It was my first trip to Europe and it opened my eyes to the struggles that people have faced then and now. A truly great experience!
