Road Scholar Travel Tours: The Ultimate Educational Adventure
Are you looking for an adventure that combines travel, education, and cultural immersion? Look no further than Road Scholar Travel Tours. With over 40 years of experience, Road Scholar has become a leader in educational travel for adults. Here are four reasons why a Road Scholar tour should be your next vacation.
Road Scholar tours are led by experts in their respective fields, including professors, historians, and naturalists. These guides provide in-depth knowledge and insights into the destination’s history, culture, and environment. You’ll learn about the local customs and traditions from people who have dedicated their lives to studying them. Whether you’re exploring the ancient ruins of Machu Picchu or studying marine life in the Galapagos Islands, you’ll have an expert by your side.
Road Scholar tours prioritize cultural immersion over typical tourist activities. You’ll have the opportunity to live like a local by staying with host families or in small hotels away from tourist hotspots. You’ll also enjoy hands-on experiences like cooking classes or traditional craft workshops that allow you to engage with the local community.
Small Group Sizes
Road Scholar tours have an average group size of 10-24 participants, allowing for more personalized attention from your guide and a better overall experience. Small group sizes also mean less time waiting in lines and more time exploring.
The educational value of a Road Scholar tour is unmatched. Each program is designed with a specific educational theme or focus in mind, such as history, art, or nature conservation. With lectures, discussions, and field trips built into each itinerary, you’ll come away with a deeper understanding of your destination.
If you’re looking for an adventure that combines education with travel and cultural immersion, consider a Road Scholar tour. With expert-led programs focused on cultural immersion and small group sizes designed for a more personalized experience, Road Scholar tours offer an educational adventure unlike any other.

Our 25th anniversary is coming up so we've been planning a vacation to celebrate. Yes, 25 years. Wow. One of the options we are considering is a cruise. Doing some research we had some specific dates, destinations and even the cruise line. I found Travel Leaders so I emailed one of their agents to get some information and questions on the benefits of working with an agent. I initially contacted Karen Malone due to the experience and reviews listed on her bio. Karen called me within 24 hours and briefly reviewed the detailed information that I had emailed. She stated she would put together some information and numbers and email those to me. A couple of days later I receive an email from a Karen Soltis. Her email had other ships and dates that I had not described in my initial email and conversation. I replied to Karen advising her of the details and apologizing if the information I had discussed with Karen Malone was not clear. Karen Soltis did reply and stated she would get the additional and correct information to me. That was over three weeks ago. Since that time I met a representative from the cruise line we are considering and also met a travel agent that specializes in cruises. I doubt that I will hear from Travel Leaders and I doubt I will ever contact them again. I will however work with the individuals that I have recently become acquainted. Sometimes fate works out better than the plan. That certainly seems to be the case here.
This was our first experience with Travel Leaders. My fiancé and I take a tropical vacation every year and were introduced to Kristi (our travel agent) through a mutual friend who had used her service multiple times. It only took one simple phone call to let Kristi know when and where we wanted to go. She took care of the plane tickets and hotel reservation in two simple phone calls and emailed me all of the information right after I booked. It was quick and convenient! She also includes our airport transfer in the package which was very helpful. There were no details she didn't cover! We booked our stay at the El Cid Castilla in Mazatlan. We were impressed with the location of the hotel as it was right down town close to the golden zone and lots of restaurants and bars. The staff was accommodating and friendly and the service at the restaurants was great. Our favorite was the Italian restaurant which was included in our all inclusive package. We also enjoyed our room! It was probably the most comfortable bed I've ever had on a vacation out of the country and was a king size bed! We had a great view of the ocean from the 7th floor and even received a welcome basket including tequila upon arrival thanks to Kristi. We visited during Carnival week and there was lots of festivities going on as a result. Kristi worked with the hotel to set up transport to old Mazatlan to see the fireworks one night and also arranged for us to attend the parade a different night. Both were great experiences and something we wouldn't have probably done without her assistance. She went above and beyond to make our trip fabulous! We are looking forward to planning our next vacation with Kristi in the future! She was friendly, prompt, and made the whole process from start to finish very easy!
We recently booked a trip to Punta Cana through Travel Leaders' associate, Kristi Ali Mackendanz...and we had a WOOOOONNNDDEERRFFFUULLL time! The resort and accompanying staff was top notch, the food options were great, and the activities were awesome . I'd recommend The Excellence Punta Cana (all-inclusive) to anyone considering visiting the area. VERY pleased with that place. We also felt very taken care of by our Delta Vacations representative, Neri once we arrived. He met us the day after we arrived, gave us some good info on the DR, some helpful tips about the resort (the drinking water, dollar to peso conversion, tipping...etc.) and a presentation of all the excursions his team offered. He also gave us his contact info and encouraged us to call if we had questions or found ourselves in a predicament. That was wonderful as it felt like we had someone "local" that was there to assist if we got ourselves in trouble...not that we were going to, but just having knowing we had someone we could call directly if we got into a tight spot was great. We did two excursions...a combo visit to "Monkeyland" and Zip-Lining, and a sport buggy tour that stopped at an underground cave, a farm that produced coco, cigars, and rum, and a beach on the Caribbean side of the island. Both were solid excursions. Both tour guides were very informative and friendly. We really got a chance to see what the countryside looked like as well as drive/travel right through some of the local areas and soak up some of the culture. Felt like we had a full experience away from the resort which was good. I must say, Kristi planned a wonderful trip for us. Even our arrival and departure times were considered, and turned out to be ideal. The first day, we still had some good daylight to get out on the beach and kick the vacation off the right way, and the last day, we didn't have to depart the resort until mid-day, so we got to get in a nice, relaxing half-day by the pool. Once again, Kristi and the team over at Travel Leaders packaged wonderful trip for us! We were EXTREMELY pleased and thoroughly happy with everything that the experience provided. We're already talking about our next New Year's excursion.
