NOTICE: Continuing Ed is open and waiting to hear from you. Our office at 540 Arapeen is open to assist you in person from 9 am - 7 pm Monday through Thursday, and Friday from 9 am - 4 pm. If you need immediate assistance, please call us at 801.581.6461. The University of Utah is a mask friendly campus and masks are no longer required, but are encouraged when needed. For more information on university COVID-19 protocols on campus visit https://coronavirus.utah.edu.
To make more meaningful our actual visits to locales, we will prepare for the tour with lectures, readings, and film viewings, all here in Salt Lake City before the tour begins. Everyone gets smart after they visit a venue; we will do our homework before (and during) the actual visits, making the time on scene all the more meaningful. When you visit the sites, you will feel well prepared.
Additionally, we'll make sure you have all the information you need before you arrive in France—we'll answer questions about what to pack, how to get around, and our daily itinerary. We want you to arrive in France ready to learn!
A trip reunion about a month after returning will be the perfect conclusion to our journey. We will exchange pictures and stories while remembering the highlights of our tour. Go Learn expeditions are designed to be small, boutique experiences where one returns with a group of friends. Good food, drink, and company await us at this reunion.
Activity levels and restrictions
In order to fully explore the sights on our itinerary, we will be walking every day, which adds up and makes for an active yet rewarding vacation. Most city walking is flat, on paved surfaces, but we will encounter stairs, occasional large hills, and cobblestones. We may stand on our feet for prolonged periods of time. Please carefully read the itinerary to better understand each day's physical activities.
