TOURS WITH CHILDREN – BAR/BAT MITZVAH CELEBRATIONS

We invite you to visit Israel with your family whether it’s just a family vacation or to celebrate a Bar/Bat Mitzvah. Although many refrain from celebrating this special event at the Wailing Wall or Masada because of a child’s disability, we can arrange a special tour accessible by wheelchair or walker giving your family the opportunity to celebrate this joyous occasion. The pace of the tour will be slower and will be designed to accommodate your special needs.

SHORE EXCURSIONS FROM HAIFA AND ASHDOD

Visits are based on ability, personal interest and time limitation. The van is equipped with a lift and is able to take 3 persons in wheelchairs and 5 people without wheelchairs. Our English speaking tour guide/driver is experienced with working with people with disabilities and special needs. Equipment such as wheelchairs (electrical or manual) as well as scooters is available for rental.

SPECIAL NEEDS CRUISING

Cruising has become an increasingly popular option for travelers with special needs, for once on board the ship, most modified cabins are accessible by elevator and your suitcase is only  unpacked once. These conveniences alone make cruising a rewarding and accessible option.

We understand that travelers with special needs have concerns that other cruisers may never have to take into consideration. We can recommend several interesting itineraries and cruise lines and can arrange a cruise vacation especially for you.

Accessible Travel services in other countries can be arranged on request. Contact us for more information.
