The trip to Alaska was the best yet. This was my first trip with Road Scholar, and will not be my last. I loved the size of the group, the activities, food, lodging and knowledge gained. The scenery was beautiful and the pace of activities was just right. I already have another Road Scholar trip planned, and look forward to may more.


An exhilarating learning experience in a fascinating and beautiful part of the world! We loved this tour!


Wow. This program was fabulous. I learned more than I ever even imagined. We saw multiple glaciers, whales, sea lions, sea otters, eagles and (from a safe distance) - bears, a wolf and a moose. We learned about the Native American Culture, the Russian Heritage of Sitka, and the history of Alaska. I am sure I am missing something about the trip - there was just so much good and interesting things to learn and do. The leader and all the guides were interesting and informative and welcoming. Thank you for providing this wonderful experience.


My husband and I had an absolutely wonderful time with the many activities, different sites, and access to so much natural grandeur. I would recommend this trip in a heartbeat.


This trip is a wonderful way to visit SE Alaska. We got close to wildlife, glaciers and the beauty of Alaska. The hikes, kayaking, walks, raft trip, ferries and biking gave us an experience that would be impossible from a boat or ship. The humpback whales were so close to the kayaks we could smell their breath. We saw sea lions, seals, a bear, and a lot of bald eagles. The glacier clad mountains were breath taking. The trip has an excellent variety of activities and pacing is great. I highly recommend this trip to anyone who wants an active vacation in a beautiful place.


This program allows for an experience of southeast Alaska that is taken by only 5% of the area's visitors who do not come on a cruise ship. The variety in the places we visited and activities we did allowed for an experience of Alaska and its beauty that was more than a "visit"


This was a most enjoyable trip! Our group was very compatible, our leader was excellent, the scenery was beautiful, and the hiking and kayaking lots of fun. (Personally I would have loved even more hiking, but we had plenty of opportunities to walk on our own, at the beginning or end of the days.) We definitely saw and learned some things we'd never have done if we'd tried to plan a trip on our own. Even the weather was great (totally unexpected)!!
