Tour Leaders

As a Sojourn tour leader, you and your co-leader will spend the tour engaging our guests and ensuring their safety and enjoyment. You will rise early each morning to attend to behind-the-scenes details and preparation and end each day late in the evening. You will need to be a jack of all trades (see below) and will serve as the face of the company while in the field.
