Program #15533RJ
5 Days | 4 Nights
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.

With a lifetime of appreciating the B.S.O. both in Boston and T-wood, this was undoubtedly the most extravagant of joyful programs that you've ever provided me! Thanks to all who organized it! Dianne Brown

The whole experience was very enjoyable. I do think we were over-programmed somewhat, but everything else was very nice. The people involved were all great. I enjoyed myself very much.

This is a great trip with activities people don't get with just a ticket to a performance. Instrument demonstrations and talks from officials gave insights that enhanced the experience of being at Tanglewood. A wonderful time for anyone who appreciates music.

One of the best and well organized programs I have attended. Great concerts, interesting and informative discussions with musicians of the Boston Symphony, very good food and accommodations. Staff was extremely well organized and very accessible.
