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.

The program includes a broad range of music performances (classical for the most part) involving many different and interesting combinations of instruments. It also includes many opportunities to interface with the performers. The atmosphere is very inviting, making the experience both educational and very much fun.

If you love to be immersed in classical music, this is the program for you. The performances were of very high quality. I learned a lot about Bach as well as the musical instruments of his era. The music of many other composers was also performed.
