Please indicate these preferences to us after you have registered for a particular sojourn.

3) How much walking will be required on this sojourn?
This sojourn involves a few long walks around cities and tours of historic sites and towns that require walking a considerable distance. All participants should be comfortable walking up to 2 miles at a time and climbing up to three flights of stairs at a time.

4) I am a single traveler, can you help me find a roommate?
Scholarly Sojourns will do all we can to match single travelers with a suitable roommate if they desire. But we cannot guarantee that roommates will be available.
