In 2004 Amar founded Traveleyes, a new and exciting way for everyone to travel the world…
Are you ready to change the way you see the world?
Whether you’re travelling solo, as a couple or with friends, Traveleyes invites you to join a small and sociable group holiday for an exploration of the senses.
These are no ordinary group holidays. Traveleyes groups are a mixture of both blind and sighted travellers. As a sighted traveller, you are asked to share your sight by describing the wonderful world around you. You don’t need any experience of blindness and in return, Traveleyes will subsidise the cost of your holiday by up to 50%.
As a blind traveller, you’re able to book a holiday with the same freedom and independence that sighted people have always enjoyed. What’s more, you don’t have to bring anyone with you, as you will be joining a group of like-minded explorers.
Since Amar Latif founded Traveleyes in 2004, thousands of blind and sighted travellers have explored the world together, sharing the adventure in a multi sensory style, taking in destinations all across Europe, Africa, Asia, the Americas and Australasia.
Traveleyes also takes students from international schools on trips all over the world to act as sighted guides as part of their CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service) programme. By guiding and describing to our blind travellers, the students build their communication and teamwork skills, and gain a valuabale insight into the world of visual impairment.
In 2018, Traveleyes is also launching its charity challenge programme, starting with us trekking through Southern India to raise money for the Sunshine Fund, a charity dedicated to helping children with disabilities in the North East of England.
Below is a small sample of the types of holidays on offer. To find out more about Traveleyes and this exciting new way to experience travel, visit the Traveleyes website.
