Sensuality, dancing, and partying: it seems the Brazilians have made a science of all that is fun in life. Brazil is known as one of the most diverse country in Latin America, not to mention the continent's only former Portuguese colony.

— Why book with Sisters Traveling Solo?
Our trips are not only affordable, but they are FUN! The trip cost won't change or increase. And no extra fees are charged to those who prefer to use our trip payment options.
— Things To Note:
- This is a group trip and there will be times where you have to wait on group members and our tour bus, if you do not have the patience to wait 5 - 15 minutes do NOT book this trip.
- Our trips like our group are positive spaces. If you are a constant complainer, a person that cannot adapt to changes easily do NOT book this trip. Complaining brings negative energy to the trip experience and impacts other travelers.
- The ideal traveler for Sisters traveling Solo trips is someone who embodies patience, flexibility, a willingness to try new things, appreciations and respect for diversity (e.g. people, customs, languages, religions), a desire to learn, grow, evolve, and has an overall spirit of fun and adventure.
