We believe that travel is for everyone. This is a really core principle for us and we passionately believe that where there’s a will there’s a way. We take all ages and all levels of fitness and we do everything possible to ensure that our tours are accessible for everyone, irrespective of physical ability or cognitive conditions. In our experience, there is almost always a way of making a tour suitable for everyone. It’s conceivable that there may be some situations that we can’t accommodate but we haven’t come across them yet!
Everything that we do is tailor made so if we have guests with limited mobility, for example, we will tailor the programme to take this into account, and will suggest hotels which will suit. Just let us know what your requirements are and we can talk you through the options
In most of our destinations, it is not possible to arrange a special vehicle adapted for wheelchairs, but we are able to arrange a large vehicle which will have ample storage for a wheelchair. Some hotels have wheelchair access; these may be few and far between but we can suggest where these might be possible. Where there is no wheel chair access, but not too many steps, hotel staff are always happy to help with lifting the wheel chair.
Blind/ limited vision:
All of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be able to provide necessary assistance to a traveler with limited vision. Information in braille is almost never available but local support can be provided, for example ensuring that porters are available to carry luggage in airports / train stations / hotels so that the travel partner is free to assist the person with limited vision.
As stated above, all of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be able to provide necessary assistance to a traveler with limited hearing.
We have experience in providing appropriate spaces for all travelers, whether this means hotels with access to outdoor space, ground floor rooms, quiet rooms and so on. As all of our customers will be traveling as part of a family group therefore we would expect that one of the family would be also be on hand to provide necessary one on one assistance to a traveler with cognitive conditions as required.
About this Free from food:
If guests have serious dietary issues (or allergies) we will arrange translations into the relevant local language(s) to explain these, and will brief guides to ensure that appropriate food is served.
The staff who are responsible for running our tours will always be LGBT friendly. Many of the destinations in which we operate do not offer equal rights to the LGBT community, and outward displays of affection may be problematic. We will be able to give advice on this on a country by country basis.

Reviewed on 16 Aug 2016 by Kirstie FraserThailand is such a big country and we feel that this vacation allowed us to experience quite a lot of it. We travelled with our two children (11,14) who absolutely loved the vacation and were so well looked by the Thai people. Read full review

Reviewed on 13 Sep 2015 by Rayner McKenzieWe had the most amazing vacation and all of us thoroughly enjoyed the "local" experiences we had, from giving alms to the monks to riding through rice fields on bikes. We really enjoyed meeting real Thai people and seeing different sides to Thailand. Read full review
As the pioneers of responsible tourism, we've screened this (and every) vacation so that you can travel knowing it will help support the places and people that you visit, and the planet. Read how below.
PlanetWhere possible we use small locally owned hotels that have been built and furnished using locally sourced materials.
We encourage the use of local transport (where appropriate) and in particular, many of our visitors will use the long distance train as their primary mode of transport whilst in Thailand.
Our UK office is run as environmentally as possible. The majority of our staff either walk or cycle to work and we operate a primarily paper free environment. We do not produce brochures (which often leads to a lot of waste) but market our tours exclusively on the internet.
PeopleThailand is a country where there has been quite a lot of negative cultural tourism that has become quite exploitative, particularly in some of the hill tribe villages in the north. We have worked closely with our local partners to ensure that all of the village visits that we arrange are conducted in a responsible fashion. In particular we ensure that the money earned by the village is distributed equitably.
Families are accompanied by a local guide in most parts of Thailand (the exception is usually a beach stay) and the guides are expected to provide guests with a detailed understanding of the way of life in Thailand. Many families are also interested in giving their children an understanding of what it is like to grow up in Thailand so, where applicable, we can also arrange a visit to a local school.
Our tours in Thailand are run in conjunction with a local partner which, whilst employing a small number of foreigners, is overwhelmingly staffed by Thai nationals.
