While all of our learning adventures offer extraordinary value, our "Best Value" programs were rated by our participants themselves who thought their dollar went particularly far.
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.

It is a beautiful part of the U.S. The people appreciate their heritage and strive to maintain it for future generations.

This was a well planned and delightful trip. The destinations and the presenters were all great. Who knew there was so much to building a dry wall! Our leader, Nancy, was outstanding and knew so many people we couldn't believe it. The final night dinner was at a great country inn with delicious food.

I just finished my first Road Scholar trip -- On the Road: The Best Fall Foliage in New England -- and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It was a great combination of great views, history of the areas, educational programs, food and new friends. Our leader was wonderful and had personal knowledge of the areas we traveled to and shared some personal anecdotes as well.

The destinations were surprisingly unique for this area and the two night stays for each lodging were a good idea. Very, very disappointed in the food, especially the lack of offering for the one local dish that was at a low, low market price: lobster. This is NOT good.

This was a great program with excellent instructors and leaders and the most beautiful foliage you can imagine! Had a wonderful time and highly recommend it.

I just completed a 10 day Road Scholar tour entitled "On the Road: The Best Fall Foliage in New England." It was great. I feel I am on the "younger end" of senior citizens, and our group included members from 65 to 91, but it was a small group and the participants were all friendly and delightful. We had a wonderful time together. The Program itself was well designed, informative, and varied and made most beneficial by our wonderful leader, Betsy Bates. She was the best. Also, our bus driver, Jeff, was so accommodating, helpful and a good driver too! I highly recommend this Tour.

The quality of the coach driver should be included in the evaluation. We found both of ours to be quite skilled, however.
