Road Scholar has thousands of educational adventures to choose from. A good way to narrow down our list is to browse our collection of "Most Popular" programs.
See all of our Most Popular programs.
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.

This is an excellent program. It was well planned and well executed. The scenery was spectacular throughout. Chihuly Glass and Gardens in Seattle and the Butchart Gardens in Victoria were fantastic! The size of the group (42), however, was too large.

Just returned from Northwest Waterways program, 8/18 to 8/27/14, the program was well run and many interesting place along the way. the walking was more than I thought and some people had difficulty in keeping up. Ferries rides were very nice and lots of scenery on the way. Program leaders well versed in our program and kept the group together.

We have actually been to most of the places covered in this trip but it was so nice to have a guided tour and to learn so much more about our beautiful Northwest!

Very busy trip with great variety of activities, free time to go on your own, some good food. Great tour guides especially John who managed to calmly keep all 42 of us together through many bus & ferry trips. His home Friday Harbor is gorgeous.

Wonderful combination of beautiful scenery, interesting experiences, and educational opportunities. Lots to see and do, but never felt hurried. I especially enjoyed traveling via ferry on the outdoor or semi- sheltered areas. (Lots of indoor seating available, too.) I returned home with lots of good memories.

Great program that keeps you moving but allows you time to soak up the natural beauty that surrounds you. Found something to love in each of the stops, but thought San Juan Island was the most beautiful place I have visited in a very long time. Serenity with a setting beyond compare. Our tour leader John was the perfect guy for this tour since he lives on the island.

My husband and I recently went on this tour and highly recommend it! It's a great opportunity to explore urban Seattle, the great Inland Sea, historical and beautiful Victoria, BC, and lovely San Juan, WA. The activities and lectures were excellent. -- R. Coleman, Massachusetts
