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.

My experience on the California Road Scholar trip was excellent. The Group Leader was informative and fun to be with over the 10 days of the program. The meals and accommodations were top notch and very comfortable. Our Bus Driver was amazing. Not only was he an excellent driver but he was, at all times, courteous and respectful. I highly recommend the Road Scholar program to all who want to see and learn about interesting places.

OF COURSE YOU CHOOSE IT BECAUSE IT IS OF INTEREST TO YOU. THE EXCITMENT IS TO SHARE THAT INTEREST WITH LIKE MINDS, WILLING, NON COMPLAINING PARTICIPANTS WHO QUICKLY BECOME FRIENDS, ALMOST TEMPORARILY, FAMILY. THE LEADER AND THOSE CHOSEN TO PERFECT EACH LOCATION WITH DETAILED AND OFTEN A PERSONAL RELATIONSHIP TO THE LOCTION IS A PLUS, PLUS, PLUS. WIDE OPEN EYES, AN OPEN MIND AND THE JOY OF SHARING AN EXPERIENCE WITH OTHERS IS IN FACT, A "ROAD SCHOLAR TRIP.

The sites are well chosen; the comfort level is appropriate; the walking is challenging....wear good shoes and get lots of rest...and you will see many wonderful sights.

Just returned and had a great time, the leaders Mary and Drew were wonderful, the trip was a little to packed with little time to explore on your own. On the go constantly. My next tour will be one with some time to stop and relax a bit.

Never, never doubt the Road Scholar programs...they are the finest trips available. We were using a commercial trip planner, but heard of Road Scholar and signed on and we have had some of the greatest adventures ever. Please come with us!
