Accessible Travel, the Artisans of Leisure Way
Artisans of Leisure works closely with travelers who have many different types of mobility restrictions and accessibility requirements. Some may want to minimize walking or need a wheelchair at disposal during touring, while others may require specialized equipment such as mobility scooters.
“Artisans of Leisure has given me back my independence. I no longer feel vulnerable. I can see whatever I want to see and have full accessibility. I have met the most wonderful people in all the countries I have visited with Artisans of Leisure. You seem to have chosen the best drivers, guides, hotels, restaurants, sites, and all I have to do is sit back and enjoy.
Thank you to Artisans of Leisure who has made my travel life a joy. I have been traveling since I was 20 years old and I am now 71, enjoying it as much as I did when I was younger.”
