Great program for grandparents and grandchildren (9-15). Very well organized, interesting and fun activities, engaging group leaders. Kids in the group bonded during the week. Made new friends. Loved it. The Grand Tetons and Yellowstone are stunning.

This was an amazing, learning experience in the beautiful setting of the Greater Yellowstone Ecosystem. We loved sharing our grandson's love of animals and learning with him more about the animals and geology of this beautiful part of the US.


The scenery was breathtaking; the hiking, canoeing, and river float were fun; and the educational experiences from knowledgeable staff were enlightening. However, the lodging and dining facilities were totally misrepresented by the information from Road Scholar which said we would be staying in a modern lodge and have delicious food prepared by a executive chef. We stayed in a small, ugly, barren room with poor lighting and no air conditioning, crowded with beds and no desk, dresser or closet for your clothes--had to use extra bunkbed to layout suitcases and constantly bumped head on top bunk! Like the lodge, the food was very basic, some of it inedible. We had the same nice sandwich bar to pack our lunch every day in these plastic containers that smashed the sandwich and crushed the cookie and chips that became soggy by lunchtime anyway! We also had to clean our own rooms and dining area after meals just like at kids' camp! The information from RS did not say we would need a large backpack to carry this lunch container on our backs every day, nor did it say we would need 2 water bottles, also to carry on our backs each day in addition to a raincoat and possibly an extra pair of shoes. Unlike the other 7 RS tours I have taken, we were transported in mini school buses designed for small children--even on our 9 hour bus ride to Yellowstone--very uncomfortable for us adults! Also, our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable, but not a trained or experienced tour guide I am accustomed to with Road Scholar. Our group missed seeing an important site we had been promised to see, and was seen by other groups, because of this inexperience. This trip despite all the natural beauty was nothing like the quality of the other national park and grandchild/grandparent trips I have taken with Road Scholar. BE WARNED!
