I'm making a flock of birds with boids. I want them to move along a path.

I tried curve guide, but they always move away from the curve. If I make the particles Newtonian, then they follow the curve, but not boids. I want to use boids because I need them to be separate and flock reaching a goal.

Have an empty follow the curve.

For the boids set your empty as goal.

You could have them follow a "leader". You could create an Empty and have them follow that. Your Empty could follow the curve. "Follow Leader" is one of the rules in the Boid Brain section.
