This summer my 10 year old granddaughter and I participated in the program Best of Colorado: Raft, Hot Air Balloon and Ride Horses. It was phenomenal trip! The leaders were outstanding, the adventures were exciting, and the learning components were well balanced and appropriate for the age level of the children! On a scale of 1-10, this trip was a 10+.


This is a great program, with great leaders and experiences of various activities, enthusiastically lead and enthusiastically received by the participants. I highly recommend it.


This is a wonderful program, with superb leadership and fun adventures for kids AND grandparents. (Educational, too, without seeming so!) Highly recommended.


I was delighted with my first experience with a Road Scholar Grandparent/Grandchild trip. The time with my granddaughter was beyond my greatest expectations. She and I both love almost every aspect of the trip. She was pushed beyond her comfort zone and was happy with her successes. She was able to demonstrate her own knowledge and skills to others and felt good about herself in this way as well. Can't wait for the trips with the next 6 grandchildren. Where shall we go??!!!


This was a Rocky Mountain high...as John Denver would say. The breathtaking landscape, the warmth of the people and the skill of the group leaders made this a once in a lifetime experience. Thank you, Road Scholar


I just finished my first trip with Roads Scholar and I was not disappointed. Everything they said on their website they delivered. I felt like I got great value and had a wonderful experience. I was not disappointed at all. I hightly recommend Roads Scholar.


I was disappointed that Road Scholar continues to use outfitters that do not automatically provide helmets for horseback riding and white water rafting especially for the children.

Thank you for your comment, Mary. Please note that helmets are made available for participants of all ages by both our rafting and equestrian partners. It is left up to the participants to decide whether or not they would like to use them.

What an amazing experience! We really enjoyed the great balance of learning and "fun" - what a great adventure for us and our grandson.
