ACCOMMODATIONS & AMENITIES
We have selected all four-star or better hotels and spas to accommodate our travelers, and we’ve booked only accessible rooms and bathrooms. All accommodations for our journey will be either exquisitely traditional or beautifully modern. We will dine in wonderful restaurants; carefully selected for excellent food, great atmosphere, or local color and characteristics.
We have also reserved a fully accessible tour bus that will take us on our journey to the many sites and venues we have specifically selected to create a diverse and remarkable experience. We will provide accessible transfers to and from the airport, and can provide you with any equipment necessary to enjoy all the activities of this pampered and relaxed trip.
On some occasions, we will also have a local guide for specific walking/rolling tours in cities, historical sites, etc. During our free time (or whenever we receive a special request), we will use our driver to accommodate if possible.
ACCESSIBILITY & SUPPORT
All the attractions on our itinerary have been researched and vetted by us and our local partners as accessible. The locations will have ramps and/or modified pathways to make them enjoyable for all.
We are keeping the tour group small so that we can easily maneuver through the locations, restaurants, and venues, while also giving plenty of attention to each of our guests. We will have a dedicated driver and a dedicated guide who both intimately understand how to make a trip accessible. They will prepare you beforehand to set you and your companions up for the best possible experience.
While new travel locations may not be perfectly accommodating for all disabilities, we must improvise and challenge ourselves in these new environments. Your host, Deborah Davis, is a manual wheelchair user and an experienced traveler who has built this trip to be as comfortable, relaxing, and concern free as possible. If you come with a great attitude, enthusiasm, and a desire to explore, we will overcome and embrace these new experiences together!
