This trip is amazing! A once in a lifetime experience. But do make certain you're ready for lots of activities. This is not a relaxing vacation. This is an adventure!


Our family trip to Ecuador and the Galapagos Islands introduced our 2 daughters and 4 grandchildren to the joys and challenges of traveling in a foreign country with grandma and grandpa! But what a memorable trip with amazing food, extremely helpful and strong!, staff to make it all a wonderful adventure for our mixed levels of abilities. It was an opportunity to bond as a family and as a larger family of Road Scholar travelers sharing your boat and interests. The islands are very unique: lots of lava and amazing wildlife and very cold water. I will never forget the look on one of our young "family" members upon returning from his first snorkel...pure amazement:"It's beautiful down there!" My own 15 year old granddaughter, a veteran Road Scholar traveler, exclaimed "This is a trip of a life time!" And she's absolutely right. There's no arguing with a fifteen year old.


This was a wonderful trip that my grandson and I both thoroughly enjoyed. We learned so much and had a great time. Everything went on schedule and lived up to the course description.


This is an amazing adventure. Nothing I read prepared me for the thrill of so much wildlife so close to hand. Loved it all.


I recently went to the Galapagos Islands with Road Scholar. The trip was fantastic, with lots of wonderful experiences. Every detail was well-planned. I really enjoyed the group of people we traveled with. Our naturalist was well-informed and fun to be around. Every member of the boat crew was great, and the food was excellent. I will not hesitate to travel with Road Scholar again.
