Road Scholar trips are learning opportunities guided by instructors. The company offers many different types of trips, including cruises, independent city discoveries, trips with a grandparent and outdoor adventures, as of June 2015.
Road Scholar's adventure afloat cruises showcase certain waterways of the world. These trips take place on ocean liners, riverboats or small ships. Independent city discoveries provide hotel accommodations and some meals for participants. These programs have structured tours and lectures guided by instructors, along with independent excursions.
Grandparent travel programs are trips that a grandparent and his grandchild take together. Outdoor adventures are active programs that involve a physical activity, such as hiking through the Grand Canyon or learning to play tennis.
Programs are listed on RoadScholar.org. Visitors can go to the Find a Program heading, then select by location, by map, by interest, by activity level or by date. The final option, by category, has multiple sub-categories for visitors to choose from, including U.S. & Canada, International, Adventures Afloat and Small Groups.
Each program page provides a summary of that program, the activity level and the length of the program. The page also lists the starting price for the program. Users who have completed the program can leave ratings or reviews.
