Classic North America Itineraries

Highlights of Canada in 10 days

Ten days in Canada will not be enough time to see all of Canada’s highlights, but it will be adequate for exploring one region or province. Travelers may choose between staying on-the-go or focusing on one area to explore.

This example itinerary focuses on the western provinces of Alberta and British Columbia.

Day 1-2, Calgary: Calgary is a major metropolitan city filled with museums, restaurants, and exciting attractions. Go shopping, attend a festival, or have a picnic in one of the city’s many parks.

Day 3-4, Banff National Park: Drive to scenic Banff for hiking in the summer or skiing in the winter. See wildlife, visit the hot springs, and take in the beauty of the Canadian Rockies.

Day 5, Lake Louise: Be sure to set aside a full day to explore beautiful Lake Louise. The lake is Instagram-famous for its clear, turquoise waters. Pack a lunch and spend a day out on kayaks in the lake.

Day 6-7, Whistler: Whistler is one of the world’s top ski destinations and a favorite vacation spot for people all around the world. The town of Whistler is filled with bars, shops, and restaurants to cozy up in after a day of skiing or hiking.

Day 10, Victoria: A short ferry ride from Vancouver, Victoria is the capital of British Columbia. The Butchart Gardens are among the world’s top gardens and well worth a visit. Other attractions include the Royal BC Museum and Hatley Castle.

Havasupai 4-day Escape

Breathtaking experience, the hike down was beautiful and also challenging but the
amazing waterfalls are the biggest rewards! Mooney Falls descent was very challenging
for my husband who's scared of heights, but he's so happy he made it! Casey took us on
the great hike to Beavers Falls and the lush vegetation was just very surprising to find
that in the middle of the canyon.

Cancun to Antigua - 10 days


I made friends of similar age on this tour and there was an excellent mixture of beaches, socialising, history and culture incorporated into this tour. I was able to get a real feel for the countries I visited and the three countries on this tour could not have been more varied which made it all the more adventurous. The hotels were lovely - often with pools and rooms to a high standard.
I would recommend this tour to anyone who wants to get a better idea of Central America as these are three fascinating, different and beautiful countries with an organised tour leader and excellent customer service directly from OnTheGo.

Cuba Today: People and Society: Cienfuegos to Havana

This was my wife's and my first trip with Road Scholar. At the time (April, 2012), it was not possible for Americans to directly visit Cuba. You had to do it with a cultural/educational group, often associated with a university. Or, you could fly to Canada, Mexico, or Europe first and then get a flight to Cuba from there (while risking a ~$10,000 fine from the US Government). We opted for the legal route with Road Scholar.

It was a fantastic trip! We had a small-ish group of about 20 people and a wonderful guide, José Luis (who, like most Cubans, had never been off the island).
The trip began in Miami where we had an orientation and spent the night. Then we flew to Havana and stayed in the Hotel Nacional for four nights. It doesn't get more historic -- or fun -- than the Nacional:
https://vimeo.com/41612444

While in Havana, we enjoyed great history/culture lectures from experts, toured various parts of Havana (including Hemmingway's home in the hills nearby), and, on our own, had the opportunity to have dinner at a paladar -- a restaurant inside someone's home.

The Cuban people are friendly but the infrastructure of their country is in shambles. It's been a long time since Russia's deep pockets left the island (1991), and you see poverty everywhere. But not the begging-in-the-street kind. Cuba provides universal health care, education (including room and board all the way through grad/med school!), food staples, and a very modest income (~$30/month) to everyone. Most people add to that income by working on the side.

After Havana, we traveled to Cienfuegos. From there we saw the infamous Bay Of Pigs, but also the wonderful Benny Moré Art School where we learned of the fantastic support for the arts by the Cuban government. Children are identified in grade school as having artistic talent and then funneled into magnet schools like Benny Moré to study art for their entire scholastic career!

Don't go to Cuba for the food. It's edible (and won't make you sick) but rather boring. You mainly get the "three amigos": fish, pork, or chicken, along with rice and/or black beans. But the aged rum is superb and so are the cigars!

Probably my favorite thing on the island, though, was the music -- whether on the street or in a more formal setting:

Cuba is fantastic. Go enjoy it!

It was a short trip but we managed to see and do a lot of things in the time. I enjoyed that we spent 2 nights in most of the hotels. I have many happy memories of the holiday
