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.
This beautiful country is teeming with intricate architecture and vivid colours, note the exquisite cherry blossoms that coat the country in vibrant pink, a phenomenon that occurs only once a year. This rare occurrence is a sight to behold and visitors from across the globe travel to Korea just to witness this beautiful act of nature. A country of diversity, cultural brilliance and extravagant art, South Korea promises to deliver an unforgettable journey of discovery.
A beautiful combination of Turkish and Greek culture, Cyprus is not only a blend of nationalities but a blend of landscapes too. On this holiday you’ll experience the gorgeous coastal areas as well as the mountainous and lush green interior of this Mediterranean island. Our aim is to relax – and there are plenty of beaches to do just that – but there are also a couple of exploration days where absorbing Cyprus’ nature and history are on the cards.
Dublin, the capital of Ireland, certainly delivers in Irish spirit, great food, and good fun. In between the traditional Irish music and the friendly atmosphere, you’ll find historic castles and quaint pubs full of stories of the past. On this trip, you’ll delve into the depths of Dublin, enjoy a pint of Guinness or two in Temple Bar, and discover why this city is the jewel of the Emerald Isle.
