My husband and I were not certain how this journey would work for us and our grandson. We all had a wonderful time; our grandson was especially interested in the flowers and birds. Mr. Harry was very accommodating in answering his questions. We loved seeing our grandson enjoy himself.

We just returned from Yellowstone with our 10 year old grandson. We all had a fantastic time! The leaders were top notch, knowledgeable, patient and affirming. It was a perfect blend of education and fun. The highlight was seeing so many animals. No, it was the white water rafting. No, it was the horseback ride. No, it was Old Faithful. No, it was....all great!!

My grandson and I really enjoyed this program. For us, the rafting was the highlight of the program. Lee and Rich were excellent leaders. Lee was wonderful with the kids, who could really be a handful at times. I would have preferred smaller crowds at the geysers and the travertine areas, but that is Yellowstone in July. We would have enjoyed an option of longer, more challenging hikes, but other programs in Yellowstone offer that. I have greatly enjoyed all five of the Road Scholar programs I have attended during the past couple years.

This program, the setting, the leaders and staff, food and accommodations are all excellent! I am so pleased this was my first Road Scholar experience. Please warn new participants to tuck some neoprene, long underwear, and a warm jacket into your suitcase. It can get very cold. All in all, it was a wonderful time.
