Very clear and easy to use. Thank you!


Sedona was beautiful, the pink jeep rides exciting, and the scenery spectacular. The Grand Canyon came alive with the stories of our guide and sunrise over the canyon was awe inspiring. Taking a trip to the Colorado River inside the canyon was the cherry on top.


Road Scholar is a wonderful Learning and traveling experience. Never a dull moment !


We just returned from our first Road Scholar tour and know that it will not be our last. Our group leader, Paul, was very knowledgeable and helpful. We learned a lot about the geology and history of Sedona and the Grand Canyon. We got to see them both from top to bottom in a nice variety of activities including a "Pink Jeep" ride that we would never have gone on by ourselves. We would never have seen as much of Sedona or the Grand Canyon if we had visited on our own. We also met a lot of great people from all over the country!


This trip is a great introduction to the Red Rock Country and the Grand Canyon National Park. We enjoyed lots of outdoor activity and sunrise over the canyon was a wonderful opportunity for picture taking and general inspiration. We covered lots of terrain driving across the Colorado Plateau through Flagstaff's ponderosa pine forest and down Diamond Creek Road to the mighty Colorado River. Wonderful trip.


This program exceeded my expectations. Beautiful scenery, great lecture by geology Professor, good Road Scholar leadership. The jeep trip, sunrise at the Grande Canyon, and van ride to bottom of the canyon, and getting in the Colorado River were highlights. This trip allowed me to do things I normally would not experience with many tours.


The Road Scholar trip to the Grand Canyon was magnificent. I highly recommend this trip to anyone interested in seeing the Grand Canyon. The part of the trip in Sedona was an added bonus that I didn't expect. What a beautiful area of the country!


This was a splendid trip exploring the beauty of Sedona and the Grand Canyon. The expert guides, guest lecturers and our Program Coodinator did an excellent job of providing ample facts and features of the areas we explored. It was wonderful to be out in the wide open spaces of Arizona and observing the marvels of the natural world and learning about the native people. We were very active and saw some amazing sights. I would take this trip again because it was so enjoyable. Enlighting, relaxing and though provoking.


This was a fun and enjoyable trip. Our first domestic RS adventure. The weather was challenging (snow and 20 degree temps on the drive to the Grand Canyon!) but our trip leaders were flexible and very good. The highlights for us were the Pink Jeep Tour, the drive to the bottom of the Grand Canyon from Peach Springs (neither of which we would have done on our own!) and the morning on our own to hike on the South Rim.


The Grand Canyon was on my bucket list so a "check" can now be made. Beautiful scenery. As a new widow I was apprehensive on going it alone but things turned out and I was very well taking care of with no fears.


This was my first road scholar trip and it far exceeded my expectations. The experience of watching the sunrise at the rim of the Grand Canyon was unforgettable.


I have always wanted to see the Grand Canyon and I have to say that neither the Grand Canyon nor Sedona should be missed by any traveler.


The excursions of this program were very adventurous with exceptional views, educational and sometimes challenging. The ride down the Diamond Creek road was very rough but worth it to see the Colorado River. The lecturers, group leaders were very knowledgeable and eager to share their expertise.


Sedona is marvelous and a great entree to the Grand Canyon tour. I didn't know that much about Sedona but am so happy that Road Scholar had this paring, excellent.

This was a great experience! We went in late October. It proved to be the perfect time to go. The weather was beautiful and there were no crowds. The description is very accurate. The road to the river is VERY BUMPY!! If you are looking for plush accommodations, this is not the trip for you. Our leaders were awesome!


This program had a broad variety of experiences.


This trip was great and I would highly recommend it. The weather was a bit cold at times but Goodwill in Sedona was close by and Paul, our leader, took me and three others there to purchase more 'layers' to help fend off the wind chill!


This program was the answer to my "bucket list" request. The scenery in both Sedona and the Grand Canyon was breathtaking. The program was everything and more than I dreamed it could be. We went at the end of September and every day was filled with fun and adventure and sunshine!


The people were so wonderful, and the experiences were something I'll remember for a lifetime.


The link to my program evaluation did not work. So... A great trip! So much information and the activities were fun. Beforehand, we were told Road Scholar would not supply water. We were instructed to bring a water bottle Strange, as we had to hydrate hydrate hydrate everywhere we went! But they did supply water in a portable water cooler. Perhaps word it better in the future? We were well prepared by the program packet. Trip Leader Paul Johnson gets 5 stars for his direction and knowledge.
