This is a can't-miss adventure for young people who have completed early American history. It all comes alive with visits to the actual places where America began, featuring costumed re-enactors who know their roles and their history. Lots of hands-on activities for kids and grandparents make for an unforgettable week.


Road Scholar is remarkable in providing interesting and informative materials for all ages. Williamsburg was an outstanding example of this...making history come alive for the kids

Recently returned from a very educational as well as fun adventure with my grandchild to Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown. Very well organized, wonderful leaders and delicious food!


If you have a grandchild ages 9-11 with an interest in the history of our nation and a passion for hands-on learning, I would heartily recommend this program. Colonial history comes alive through skilled interpreters in period costumes.


Time spent with granddaughter and watching her learn and interact with other participants was incredible and beyond value.


Just got back from Williamsburg with road scholars grandparent program. We had so much fun and I would recommend it to anyone who would like to spend some quality time with their grandchild and learn something too.


We could not have asked for a better vacation with our grandson than a week in Colonial Williamsburg, Jamestown and Yorktown. Every activity was so much fun and little did they know they were actually studying history!!

This was our first intergenerational tour. It was very well-organized and featured activities that were educational and enjoyable for grandchildren and grandparents. There was a great mix of historical tours and entertainment. We especially enjoyed our night time activities that featured Stephen Christoff, musician, Debbie Downs, storyteller and the historical debate where kids assumed the roles of Loyalists, Patriots or "Undecided". Jessica Clothier was our tour organizer and we can't say enough about how wonderful she was. Rebecca Suerdieck was one of our tour leaders. She also organized acitivities that featured colonial games, dance, dress and foods. Her knowledge of the time period and enthusiasm for what she does was quite evident. One thing we didn't expect was the bonding between the children and the grandparents. It was special. We hope to take another Road Scholar intergenerational tour in the future. Thanks for a memorable time - one we will always treasure.


Our first intergenerational tour with Road Scholar was a wonderful experience and one our 10 yr old grandson will probably never forget. Highly recommend these trips!


This is an exceptional opportunity for grandparents and grandchildren to bond while learning from being immersed in the experiences of the early colonists and leaders of our country. Assigning trades and political positions for the youngsters was innovative and extremely effective in engaging them in the experience while meeting others from across the country.

Absolutely a great program for kids of that age! Fun and informative.


I have been impatiently waiting to travel with my 9 year old grandson. Williamsburg was a wonderful first adventure. He and I had some good discussions. I enjoyed watching him interact with other kids as they tried on colonial clothing, stomped in the mud, tried old craft techniques, and splashed in the pool.
