Disabled & Walking Issues
TOURS FOR HANDICAPPED OR PEOPLE WITH WALKING ISSUES
Some of our guides have more experience with a certain disability than others, due to their own personal circumstances. This is why we ask you to let us know in advance if you or someone in your party has some disability or walking issue, so we can choose the right guide for you.
Please be as specific as you can about your needs and capacities, so we can figure out what’s doable or not and how long is needed. The more we know about you and your needs before the tour, the more tailored and personal it’ll be.

Yes, we do know that there are 3D models with braille inscriptions on them at some sites, but to deliver an excellent service we’d rather have time to plan a few more things such as textures and sounds that add up to your experience.
If you can lip read, or if just speaking louder and clearly is enough for you, that shouldn’t be a problem. But do please let us know in advance, so we can assign you a guide that can easily adjust to your needs.
RELEVANT MENTAL ISSUES, DOWN SYNDROME, AUTISM…
However, we appreciate if you can let us know in advance, so we can choose the right guide for you.

ADJUSTING YOUR TOUR TO A SLOW PACE
Note that you are booking a tour guide service for a certain number of hours, not an itinerary to be completed no matter what: if you or someone in the party slows down the pace of the group upto the point that there is no time to see everything in the plan, the service still has to finish at the agreed tour ending time and you will not be entitled to any sort of compensation. Please consider booking extra time if you feel your pace is slower than the average healthy visitor.
