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.


What a wonderful vacation to take with grandchildren! We all learned so much and made many new friends. Learning like this is great fun!


This program, focused on the 18th Century experiences of people who colonized Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown and fought the British "Loyalists" for their strong desire for self-government, was very educational. The program nicely sequenced the talks and visits so that the final episodes in Yorktown were the culminating aspect of it.


The Jamestown, Williamsburg and Yorktown trip is a great experience. I highly recommend it!
