The Yellowstone trip is a great family adventure for three generations. We saw many of the wonders of Yellowstone with a knowledgeable and very "kid-friendly" guide. Learned history and geology, hiked, rafted, rode horseback - and ate well.

This is a wonderful way to see and learn about one of our beautiful national parks. Deb O'Neil, our program coordinator and Lee Harry, our instructor were both delightful people with a wealth of knowledge. In addition the rafting and our stay at the ranch were a real treat.

There could never be a Yellowstone Experience for younger kids without Road Scholar's well-selected leaders. My wife and I think that our grandkids will have many great memories of their experience because of the knowledge, enthusiasm and genuine excitement of our tour guides.

There is no place like Yellowstone on earth and what a privilege to share the experience with my granddaughter. The rafting, wildlife, ranch experience were highlights, and Lee, with his sunny disposition and great knowledge of the park, made everything come alive. It has created warm memories that will last a lifetime.

I cannot recommend this program highly enough. It was an amazing experience that opened our eyes to the beauty of the world. The time spent with my son in such a fantastic venue was unrivaled.
