You can trust our proven track-record and have confidence that you will have a fantastic experience with a company that has a long and successful history in the travel industry.
What does Sojourns provide that its competitors do not?
Sojourns list of inclusions can be found HERE.
We differ from competitors as we have truly private accommodations – no shared bathrooms, personal living space, or kitchen facilities. We include more activities than anyone else, and these activities are more sophisticated than the usual tourist fare. We also have the added touches like a host that travels with you and included travel insurance in case any emergencies arise.
Will I have local contacts?
Yes, you will have local support in each destination country, your onsite host, and support from the Brownell office in the U.S.
Do I need a passport?
US citizens will need a passport when traveling outside the United States. We require that your passport be valid at least six months after your intended date of departure from your Sojourn (ie your last day of Sojourn). Visit the State Department website for more information.
What about a visa?
Visa requirements vary by country. Visit the State Department website for country specific information for US citizens. If you are accepted to the program, your Sojourn host will let you know visa information about that program and the participant is responsible for covering the cost of any visas needed.
