I especially enjoyed seeing the Rodin museum. It made me want to revisit the Rodin museum in Philadelphia. I was moved by the exhibits at the Holocaust Center in Paris - especially as our visit there was close to the anniversary of Oct. 27 synagogue shootings in Pittsburgh.


We had a wonderful experience in Paris with the Road Scholar Paris at a slower pace program. This was a great way to experience Paris and Road Scholar handled everything, the hotel, transportation, venues, meals, museum tours, walking tours, river cruise. It was great!


Great Program. We didn't have enough time to explore the whole city thoroughly but I feel we got a good taste of Paris. The activity level was just right for me and I could have tolerated just a little more activity. We stayed beyond the program for two days and got to visit some more places in depth. I would have liked to gone out inthe country some but this program was not designed for countryside exploring, which is ok.


"Paris at a Slower Pace" provides a delightful overview of an enchanting city.


This program is a superb adventure into the whole of Paris. The program's description is accurate regarding place, time, and amount of physical activity. There is time for individual pursuit while learning as a group. I traveled alone and found like-minded, good-spirited people who were open and engaging. I recommend the program without reservation.


A very nice introduction to Paris - saw more than I expected. Could have used a free afternoon (or another whole day) to do a little private exploring otherwise a good trip. Sylvie Moreau , our Paris guide was excellent as was our Road Scholar Group Leader Penny Old.


Paris at a Slow Pace was my first ever tour and a fascinating experience. Sharing the pleasures and delights of Paris, it's history, food and art was like being a grown-up at a wonderful summer camp. With many meals provided and travel by bus, the hassle of constant decision making was gone leaving time to experience sheer delight and awe in the City of Light.


After taking Paris at a Slower Pace you'll love Paris even more than you did before!


An excellent introduction to the highlights of Paris


I thoroughly enjoyed and would highly recommend "Paris At A Slower Pace: Art & Culture in the City of Light". Be prepared to be dazzled by the Museums, Gardens, and Sights & Sounds of this amazing City! And the food is so delicious that you'll be glad you're staying so active! Susana and Agathe were wonderful, very knowledgeable and very helpful.


This program is just perfect for those who want to spend a week in Paris, see the great art of the Louvre, and painting after painting from all the Impressionist artists you know. Significant cultural sites are included; it is a nice balance of guided activities and free time, and you can soak up the wonderful Paris cafe culture as well. Highly recommended!


We'll definitely look at Road Scholar for our next European vacation.


A wonderful overview of Paris that goes both deep and broad, led by experts .


An excellent overview of Paris. In just a week, we were able to see most of the high points. The group leader and instructor could not have been better, always ready with advice and insights. We ate well -- Road Scholar chose excellent restaurants. My only wish is that we'd spent less time on the bus, but perhaps this could not have been avoided. A week is a good length of time (we've been on two-week trips that felt too long for a group experience). Overall, a terrific, memorable trip.


I can't say enough about our guide and facilitator. Efficient, positive, engaging. Our bus driver was a gem and amazing.


The pace of this program is fast paced but very doable. Penny and Jenny are outstanding group leaders and our bus driver was very good. Wonderful way to see much of Paris.


An exciting way to see the world for retired clientele. All the fun without the fuss.


The Paris at Slower Pace was the best way for me to go to Paris. It was a good deal and was comfortable and I learned much about Paris and French culture.


ADD to your bucket list...…..See the Eiffel Tower at night, when it sparkles.
