King Johns CastleOn our Coach Tours:
Disabled Participants and those with limitations: Any disability 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 wheelchairs should bring their own for added comfort, but we can also provide these if needed. Electric scooters are not allowed on our larger coach tours, but may be accepted on many of our smaller size tours.

Oxygen: 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.
