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, taking in destinations all across Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australasia.
Traveleyes also takes students from international schools on trips all over the world to act as sighted guides as part of their CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) programme. By guiding and describing to our blind travellers, the students build their communication and teamwork skills, and gain a valuabale insight into the world of visual impairment.
In 2018, Traveleyes is also launching its charity challenge programme, starting with us trekking through Southern India to raise money for the Sunshine Fund, a charity dedicated to helping children with disabilities in the North East of England.
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.
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.
With blue Mediterranean waters lapping sensuously onto beautiful beaches, it’s easy to understand why Nice became known as the heart of the legendary French Cote d’Azur. Nice will be our base for exploration around the French Riviera with the exclusive Principality of Monaco being just a short train journey away. Other highlights include the glamorous coastal towns of Cannes, Villefranche and Antibes.
