It was a fantastic trip and if it weren't for a simple change the Road Scholar people should do to improve it I would highly it. The meals at the "Food Court" in Yosemite were terrible. I expect Road Scholar people chose the "Food Court" over the "Mountain Room Restaurant" which is in the same facility and is a spectacular place because they saved a few dollars - but I don't think the person who made the decision ever experienced a meal at the "Food Court".

My husband and I just returned from our Road Scholar Program called On the Road: National Parks of the West. What a wonderful program! We were able to visit Yosemite, Sequoia and Kings Canyon, the Mojave Desert and Victorville, Joshua Tree, Grand Canyon South Rim, Navaho lands and Marble Canyon, Bryce Canyon and Zion. What a busy and exciting few weeks! There is no way we could have done all of this by ourselves; but we didn't have to, because Road Scholar provided everything including meals, room accommodations, transportation, activities, and outstanding experts to help along the way. We got to see lovely waterfalls and mind-blowing mountains in Yosemite, giant trees in Sequoia, alien-looking deserts and plant-life in Joshua Tree, condors in the Grand Canyon, painted deserts, hoodoos in Bryce Canyon (as well as a Cowboy band), and inspiring mountains, waterfalls and raptors in Zion. If you want to see and experience some of the most breath-taking National Parks in our nation, this guided trip is for you!

This was a wonderful program. My husband and I had never visited any of these National Parks. This was also our longest program. The parks were beautiful, the ride was comfortable with good comfort stops and a wonderful driver. Our program leader did a great job of making certain that everyone had every need taken care of during the trip. We had excellent speakers at each park as well. Everyone did as much or as little walking as they were comfortable doing. We always had a good idea of how much walking would be required on any trail we took.
The weather couldn't have been more beautiful and the scenery was outstanding.
