See our Small Group programs.
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.

My husband and I enjoyed the Iconic Napa Valley program first, so we had two weeks of lovely California wine country. If you can, I recommend that you do both programs. But if you can only do one, do this one!! Bernie Butcher and his Tallman Hotel are the perfect host and setting for discovering wine country "as it used to be." You will not only enjoy the educational programs, but you will be very impressed by the people who teach them. Definitely a five star program!

My first road scholar experience was wonderful ! Excellent accommodations and delicious food. All the staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Lake county area is beautiful. It was fascinating to learn all the steps of the wine-making process! And it was a lot of fun to visit many different wineries and taste different varieties of wine! I would definitely recommend this adventure to anyone with an interest in wine! Special congratulations to Bernie Butcher for the beautifully restored Tallman Hotel and his gracious hospitality!

We had a very enjoyable and informative experience. People interested in learning more about wine and the industry in general would find this program most worthwhile.
