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.

It's like being in Europe without the long plane trip. French Canadians are welcoming, friendly, happy and hospitable. The history of Quebec is complex, interesting and very much tied to our own history in the USA. Be prepared for a variety of weather.

This tour was fantastic! Susan Sebert, our local guide, was friendly,knowledgeable, committed to her job yet fun! All of the experts that joined us were Very competent in their fields, good speakers and genial. A big plus was the earbud listening devices so we heard the speakers well even when walking in front of the group. The accomadations and the provided meals were very nice. Since my only other Road Scholar experience was 6 years ago in Mexico and awful, I was thrilled to find such a wonderful program in a great historical city!

The food was excellent, the weather perfect, and the trips organized in a sequence to provide an overview of a city important in the history of North America. Quebec City is lovely, both the upper city and the lower city. The suggested readings provided a good understanding of Quebec's history which was then illustrated by local walking tours and bus trips to the Plains of Abraham. This is an excellent program with knowledgeable interpreters giving background presentations.

This tour was lead by an absolutely wonderful leader Susan Sebert! It was well-organized and a lot of fun. The local presenters were knowledgeable and personable. Our hotel room was spacious and comfortable (and breakfasts were really good). The restaurants had delicious meals. Having this tour during the annual summer music festival in July was a big bonus. Don't hesitate to sign up for this tour!

We attended the Williamsburg, Va Road Scholar tour (Williamsburg, Jamestown & Yorktown the week before joining the Quebec City program. It was a great way to understand the early permanent settlements of North America by the Euopeans. As usual, both programs were wonderful. Bob from Fresno, California

We have just returned from our third Road Scholar trip to Canada: Toronto, Montreal, and Quebec City. They have all been expertly planned from the first minute to the last - meals, sights, lectures, and surprises! Canada, we will be back! Ron & Barbara
