- 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.
