Are you ready to change the way you see the world?
Whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple or with friends, Traveleyes invites you to join a small and sociable group holiday for an exploration of the senses.
These are no ordinary group holidays. Traveleyes groups are a mixture of both blind and sighted travellers. As a sighted traveller, you are asked to share your sight by describing the wonderful world around you. You don’t need any experience of blindness and in return, Traveleyes will subsidise the cost of your holiday by up to 50%.
As a blind traveller, you’re able to book a holiday with the same freedom and independence that sighted people have always enjoyed. What’s more, you don’t have to bring anyone with you, as you will be joining a group of like-minded explorers.
Since Amar Latif founded Traveleyes in 2004, thousands of blind and sighted travellers have explored the world together, sharing the adventure in a multi sensory style. So far, these destinations have included Europe, Africa, Asia, Australasia and the Americas.
Below is a small sample of the types of holidays on offer. To find out more about Traveleyes and this exciting new way to experience travel, visit the Traveleyes website.
Chile is a country of extremes stretching across the South American Pacific Coast. Our quest to discover the wonder that is Patagonia begins in Santiago, and takes in Valparaiso, the nation’s favourite coastal destination. We return to Santiago, the cosmopolitan capital city, with it’s Andean backdrop and colonial Spanish influences before flying south and into the heart of Patagonia and exploring Torres del Paine National Park.
The Costa del Sol is home to many stunning resort towns and we stay in one of the most sought after – San Pedro de Alcantara. San Pedro has a relaxed puebla feel to it, while boasting a bustling Thursday market and a gorgeous beachfront complete with golden sands. Only 10km west of Marbella it is easy to hop over and experience the gaudy pomp of Spain’s glitziest resort, and offers easy access to the Sierra de Ronda Mountain range.
San Francisco is a city of endless discovery, with each one of its nine districts possessing unique style and culture. Together we will discover its remarkable sites, the immense Golden Gate Bridge, traditional trams clanking up and down the boulevards, and the fortress prison-island of Alcatraz. We also discover the wonder of nature that is Yosemite National Park, experiencing the majestic waterfalls and giant Sequoias.
