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.

I strongly recommend this program for the beauty and uniqueness of the Channel Islands, for the quality of the lecturers and for the content of the lectures. It is well organized and it runs smoothly.

The Channel Islands program was very enjoyable, with excellent leader and speakers. The educational content was great and the hiking on the islands was outstanding. The boat ride to and from the islands was unexpectedly fantastic, with wonderful viewing of dolphins and whales!

This is a wonderful program for nature lovers,and those interested in the culture and history of the area. It provides varied hiking experiences, excellent classes that hold your interest, along with free time to explore the area or relax on the beach. Sheila, the group leader, is very organized, always helpful, easy to relate to, and the instructors are very knowledgeable, engaging, enthusiastic, and for the most part very good presenters. I greatly enjoyed the entire program, including my fellow travelers, while discovering one of our lesser-visited National Parks.
