Program #9051RJ
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.

A leisurely paced program in the unique hill country of Texas. A fun blend of history of the German immigrants and the traditions and foods that continue to keep New Braunfels a desirable vacation destination. The program does dmand many climbs into and out of vans--not the best choice for those with knee problems.

My husband and I were very pleased with this, our first, Road Scholar program. The guide was terrific, the participants friendly, the program varied and educational, the local people welcoming. We are looking forward to more Road Scholar programs.

We had a little miscommunication with the shuttle driver, but all ended well...Otherwise the program was great. We enjoyed the ethnic food!
