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.

One of the most enjoyable tours I have ever had. Everything, the facilities, food, transportation, speakers and guides were just wonderful. Don't miss this one.

Great trip if you are interested in the ecology of the Georgia barrier islands. Beautiful setting with excellent instructors; our coordinator, Rusty Fleming, was terrific.

I totally agree with Carol about the trip to Sapelo, but what I really really bonded with was the time on the beach with Georgia Graves, the naturalist; and also the turtle center on Jekyll Island. I would like to be onthe beach in May when the turtles are coming ashore.

A delightful week of touring islands. Sapalo is not to be missed and the trip on the shrimp trawler was a whole lot of fun as well as educational. I highly recommend this program!
