Travel into History with Scholarly Sojourns

Who among us is not at least slightly enticed by the notion of traveling back in time to witness historic events in person and to experience eras long past? Ever since H.G. Wells popularized the the idea of time travel in his 1895 novel The Time Machine, the human psyche has been captivated by such a possibility. However, until the technology community is actually able to offer us nifty gadgets that make time travel a reality (and we are certain Google, Apple, and their cohorts are trying), the closest way to experience the past is to travel in the present.

Scholarly Sojourns is proud to offer a robust collection of fascinating historical tours which all provide you the unique opportunity to explore the past along with a great scholar and other intellectually-engaged travelers. Each itinerary is carefully planned for those who recognize that every journey presents an opportunity to engage the mind.

Our sojourns transport you right to places where history was made. And as you travel in the company of our celebrated tour leaders–all respected experts, historians, and scholars–you gain a detailed understanding of people, places, and events that have shaped the human experience. For the time being, or at least until Google and Apple step up their game, this may be as close as we humans actually get to time travel.

As Wells reminds us in his novel, “We are always getting away from the present moment.” Before we get too far, why not seize this moment to journey into history with us? In addition to fantastic photos, lifetime memories, and new friends, we promise you will also return with a deeper understanding of our world.
