and visitor attractions are now accessible to wheelchair users, and an
increasing number of restaurants and pubs, hotels and guesthouses are well
equipped to accommodate disabled guests. The National Rehabilitation Board has
a county-by-county fact sheet and copies of this can be obtained by writing to:

On our Coach
Disabled Participants and those with limitations:
requiring special attention should be reported to us at the time the
reservation is made. We will make reasonable efforts to accommodate the special
needs of disabled tour participants, but we are not responsible in the event it
is unable to do so, nor are we responsible for any denial of services by
carriers, hotels, restaurants or other independent suppliers. As our coaches
are not equipped with wheelchair ramps, all tour members must be able to mount
3 or 4 steps into coach. We regret that we cannot provide individual assistance
to a tour member for walking, dining, getting on and off motorcoaches and other
transportation vehicles, or other personal needs. Travelers who need such
assistance must be accompanied by a qualified companion.
Passengers requiring wheelchair
s should bring their own for added
comfort, but we can also provide these if needed. Electric scooters
not allowed on our larger coach tours, but may be accepted on many of our smaller size
Some airlines do not allow you to travel with your own oxygen
canisters. If requested, we can arrange oxygen on board, and at our
destinations at added cost. We need to know how much oxygen you use per day and the regulator type you use.
