Touring in a new place is an exciting adventure. This entails memorable experiences, trying new foods, and immersing yourself into a foreign culture and language. However, it can also be quite exhausting, and especially for seniors or people with certain physical disabilities. And Israel is no exception. The Old City of Jerusalem, for instance, cannot be toured by car. Even presidents and popes must walk there. This is also true for several holy destinations, national parks, nature reserves, etc. Traveling in a wheelchair can be challenging. Not all sites are wheelchair friendly, and some do not have any alternatives to walking. In recent years, there has been noticeable effort put into making national parks more accessible. Many parts of Masada, for example, can now be reached in a wheelchair. However, for many other sites, experience is the key to overcome various obstacles if you need certain accommodations.
Over the years we have gained an abundance of experience and have managed to modify all tours while keeping the integrity of the trip. We have a solution for any mobility accommodations needed. Or if you simply need to slow down the pace, we’ve got you covered. Below are several examples of how we modify a day-tour to ensure a successful experience.
If you have a handicap parking permit, please bring it with you! Or send us a photo of it before the tour. This will allow us to park at the most convenient location at most sites.
