Program #21299RJ
6 Days | 5 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.

An excellent program. Good selection of tour sites. Well organized and well executed.

Phoenix had a lot more to offer than I had previously thought: Desert Botanical Garden, Arizona Biltmore, the MIM, Heard Museum, Phoenix Art Museum, Taliesin West. Bob, the guide, had a very upbeat personality that was infectious and made the tour especially fun. The guest speakers were very knowledgeable and passed on all the good and bad historical facts. I really enjoyed the talk about the peopling of Arizona over the last several thousand years. As is usual for a Road Scholar group, our fellow participants made this program even more enjoyable. I truly cannot say enough positives about this adventure.

This program is interesting and informative, but at 82, I found it to be more strenuous than I expected, even though it is described as active. There was a whole lot of walking--outdoor excursions, museums, and in Scottsdale itself. I had to omit some. Still had a good time!

Even though I use a walker I was able to enjoy all the fieldtrips.

Although a big part of my husband's and my motivation was to get away from the snow and cold of Chicago, we would have enjoyed this program without the extra motivation. To enjoy, learn, meet interesting people, and not empty your bank account is wonderful.
