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.

Loved Chicago! What a great city. So much to see and do. Will have to return to see more of the sites.

David City, Nebraska:
Enjoyed the entire time of 5/20/13 to 5/24/13 and thought the leaders did a good job of substituting when original destinations did not work out. Have seen the architectural tours three times and learn new things each time so felt that was a great choice to put in place of a cancellation. Food portions were far too large even for a Nebraska appetite and it would be so much nicer not to see food wasted. Do think the art institute should be on all Chicago tours if at all possible for those who cannot afford more than one tour. So glad I went and what a convivial group.

I never expected Chicago to be so wonderful! It's a beautiful and clean city, very easy to get around. So many venues that children will enjoy as well, so bring the family! Road Scholar, keep up the good work.
