Top Destinations

Amsterdam

Amsterdam is one of the greatest small cities in the world. The small scale of the buildings and the intimacy of the streets, canals and squares create an atmosphere that visitors find unique.

The city has the highest museum density in the world and is home to cultural highlights, such as the Van Gogh Museum, Anne Frank House, Hermitage Amsterdam and the Rijksmuseum with Rembrandt’s world-famous Nightwatch. Other well known places of interest in Amsterdam are the Palace on the Dam, the Artis Zoo, Jewish Historical Museum and the Rembrandt House. 
 
It has all the advantages of a big city; culture, nightlife, international restaurants and good transport, but has a quiet feel largely thanks to its extensive canals.
 
The city is virtually barrier-free with the accessibility of public buildings, transport and canal boats taken very seriously.

Lanzarote

The most easterly of the Canary islands, Lanzarote lies just 100 miles off the coast of Africa in the Tropic of Cancer. With an average temperature of 22 degrees, this makes it an excellent holiday destination all year round.

In 1987 the World Tourism Organisation declared Lanzarote one of the six universal models of sustainable development. And in 1993 UNESCO declared the island a Reserve of the Biosphere. The island is justifiably proud of these awards and jealously protects its natural, cultural and artistic heritage, although an economy based on fishing and agriculture has long ago given way to the mainstay of tourism.

 

River Cruise

The first barrier-free accessible river cruise, sailing on the Rhine and on the Dutch Belgian Waterways

Knowledgeable, impartial advice

From city breaks to ski trips, we tailor all our package holidays and ‘disabled friendly’ cruises to your needs. Once you’ve chosen your destination, we’ll help you select the most appropriate accommodation or accessible property. Our team doesn’t earn commission and isn’t incentivised to favour hotels, properties or destinations either. That means you can always trust us to provide knowledgeable, impartial advice.

Fully-inclusive prices

The land-based holiday prices on our website include accommodation with the appropriate meal plan, accessible airport transfers and (where relevant) a local representative. We’ve deliberately excluded airfares so you can choose your preferred departure date, airline, airport and holiday duration. Once we’ve secured your flights, we’ll give you a fully-inclusive price from home to destination and home again.

With your trip booked, our legendary service continues as we help with airline or cruise pre-notification, parking, holiday insurance and other aspects of administration and post-holiday follow-up.
