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 program was a classic bait and switch. It had no resemblance to the advertised program, except that it did include movies. The hotel was OK, the meals were less than poor, the so-called experts were uniquely uninformative, and 4 of the 6 movies were not worth the time, 2 being absolutely horrid. All the movies were shown in a high school auditorium, 2 back to back per day with a short break between. To make matters worse, with a few key strokes, a couple could have stayed in the same hotel, eaten good meals, and seen 6 fine movies at a leisurely pace for $700 less. Shame on you!

I have participated in two excellent trips with RS in the past three years. This trip was poorly planned and poorly executed. It did not follow the printed materials sent to me via the mail or email. It was not what I expected. My dietary needs were ignored even though I was provided with a lovely card that said no dairy. Not one Road Scholar person helped me to get what I was Promised.

I enjoyed this very much. Especially because none of these films will ever come to where I live. The staff were SO helpful and friendly. This was billed as a "moderate" activity level which I think was accurate, primarily because the meeting rooms were pretty far flung in the hotel. The food was excellent. The Road scolar staff went out of their way to get us more movies to see. I would go to this program again.
