It was like winning a double trifecta. Three "duly impressive" National Parks presented by 3 awesome facilitators. Jessica, Shirley, and Pat were all fantastic.

This program was amazing from start to finish, this was my first Road Scholar trip but it won't be my last. The group leader and all the staff at ECCO were wonderful, and the food they served was so delicious. Our instructor Shirley was an incredible resource, she has an immense amount of knowledge about the Sierra Nevada and so much enthusiasm to share. I've wanted to go see the sequoia trees for years, and I'm so glad that I got to see them with Shirley as a guide. The evening programs were also fun and interesting. Met a lot of nice people in our group and enjoyed making new friends. The whole week was a great experience.

We loved this trip! Our Road Scholar team was excellent. We saw beautiful parks, learned interesting facts, were entertained in the evening, shared delicious food, traveled with friendly people and all was well organized! This was our first group touring and Road Scolar trip but hopefully not our last!

As a first-time participant on a Road Scholar trip, looking for a special, celebratory experience to these special national parks it fulfilled a lifelong dream. We will definitely be looking for more experiences for future travels.

Completed our 5 day Road Scholar walking/hiking trip to 3 parks in the California Sierra Nevada mountain range - Yosemite, Kings Canyon and Sequoia National Parks. A memorable learning experience, stunning scenery, 19 interesting traveling companions from multiple states and a thoughtful intelligently curated program. All due to Glenda, our patient and organized RS coordinator and photographic chronicler; Monica, our fearless and thankfully competent bus driver on scary corkscrew roads (petite and feisty, retired youth counselor and retired semi-truck driver) and finally our amazing guide Shirley Spencer - Masters in Envionrment Science, brillant and fiercly passionate protector of the environment, mountain climber, National Park Ranger, historian, author, artist and educator. There is nothing this woman cannot do and to top it off, she is funny and very personable. To prepare for the trip, I read the biography of John Muir, a renowned naturalist who was one of a handful of people responsible for the creation of the National Parks and a co-founder of the Sierra Club. We loved this adventure and are already searching for another Road Scholar trip next year.

There is nothing like the NP's Of the Sierras on the East coast. You should put this programs on the top of your bucket list.

The Road Scholar team were terrific. They took great care in looking after all our needs. The National parks program was amazing. You will never look at any national park the same way again. We learned so much about the park system and the importance of conserving the beauty that surrounds us. I highly recommend the Road Scholar experience to anyone!
