  • I always love to travel, but had a difficult time to find travel companion. Traveleyes provides me with an opportunity to do what I love - to travel and experience the world! Thank you!
    Thien Vu – Blind Traveller - Andalucia, May 2024
  • A Traveleyes holiday for a sighted person is an opportunity to combine travel with meeting remarkable people in remarkable places, while helping them to enjoy and appreciate their surroundings. A stimulating, out of one’s comfort zone, experience, but far more memorable than most other kinds of holiday.
    David Bird - Sighted Traveller - Andalucia, April 2024
  • My fourth trip with Traveleyes led me to Andalusia. A wonderful group of sighted and VI travellers enjoyed the guided tours through castles, gardens, cathedrals, cities and remote mountain villages. Local guides are around to answer our many questions. Being with Traveleyes opened a new window in my life, I have learned a lot from VI people and there is still a lot more to discover on my future trips. I enjoy our meals together and the evenings when we chill and chat at the bar. By the end of the trip we are well bonded and the "goodbyes" at the airport take a long time. I enjoy Traveleyes trips because I don't have to organise anything. The tour guides are professional and very supportive.
    Heidi West - Sighted Traveller - Andalucia, April 2024
  • Traveleyes have given me the opportunity to visit parts of the world I would never be able to get to without such a specialist company. The international aspect which brings together both visually impaired and sighted travellers from a wide range of countries is really special.
    Michael Scanlan, Blind Traveller - Nepal, November 2020
  • Seville is an excellent city in which to spend four or five nights, whether you are visually impaired or sighted. There is something for everyone. We could all feel the rich history of the city seeping from the ancient walls of the magnificent architecture particularly at the cathedral and the Alcazar. Inside the cathedral, your breath away is taken away by the sheer size and opulence - an awe-inspiring feeling both for VIs and sighted travellers. The intensity of the Flamenco dancers is apparent to those of us who are sighted from the expressions on the dancer's faces and their movements, but it is equally clear to VIs through the guitar music, castanets, singing and foot-stamping. If you are willing to be a little bold, trying various items on a tapas menu can be an interesting experience and it is all washed down with excellent Spanish wine. For more leisurely moments on the tour there are options of taking an hour's cruise along the river or seeing the sights from a horse-drawn carriage, or just ambling through the many narrow streets soaking up the atmosphere, the souvenir shops, and of course tasting the delicious Orange Wine.
    Doreen Hutchings, Sighted Traveller - Seville, January 2020
  • Every trip gets better! This was a tremendous experience with a mix of culture, history, activity, and understanding of the social aspects of all thing Myanmar. A great opportunity for me to share this with others, and to bring this experience back home too. I was also able to learn and to understand about a country that I have not visited before. All the group were very open, trusting and sociable, and "switched on" to the Traveleyes philosophy whether new or repeat travellers.
    Steve Whyley, Sighted Traveller - Myanmar, January 2020
  • Just returned from a trip to Myanmar. Such an amazing country we were able to discover with our supportive, wonderful TE and local guides. We started in Yangoon, flew to Inle Lake, then Bagan and in the end, we were on a bus on "the way to Mandalay" listening to the cracking song. What a treat! The whole trip was extremely well planned, the hotels beautiful and the restaurants well chosen with a big variety of tasty food. We had trishaw rides through markets, a whole day cruising in a longboat on Inle lake with interesting stops, visits to Monasteries, temples, watched silk weaving, paper making from mulberry tree bark and so much more. I felt very safe in Myanmar, the people are respectful, welcoming and dignified. The group was wonderful and this trip makes me want to go back for another visit.
    Heidi West, Sighted Traveller - Myanmar, January 2020
  • The visit to Myanmar was our first trip with Traveleyes; and our first experience of guiding. We were a little bit worried about what it would entail, but we needn’t have been. The group were lovely and good fun, and the holiday offered so many different experiences and a new perspective on how to enjoy these experiences. We look forward to travelling with Traveleyes again.
    Morag Sanderson, Sighted Traveller - Myanmar , January 2020
  • This River Cruise trip was my third trip with Traveleyes. I really enjoyed the food, the well-organized tours and events, and exploring the cities and the excursions that we did on this trip, especially Strasbourg. All the activities were really memorable and great experience. It is fun to get to know others in the group. Also, I learned a lot about history on this trip, and Liz Wyke is a fantastic tour manager. I highly recommend tours and trips arranged by Traveleyes International.
    Aaron Richmond, Blind Traveller - New Year Cruise, January 2020
  • What can I say, my third trip and they just get better and better. Brilliant locations, wonderful people, and a brilliant tour manager and local guide. Nepal was the holiday of a lifetime!
    Helen Harvey, Sighted Traveller - Nepal, November 2019
  • If you are looking for a way to experience a destination and a culture in a much deeper way than you ever imagined, consider taking a journey with Traveleyes! While helping the visually impaired members of our group "see" the world around us, I found that I, too, saw things in a whole new way. I fell into bed each night exhausted but satisfied that I had gotten a whole lot more out of the experience than I ever would have in a totally sighted group.
    John McConnell, Sighted Traveller - Nepal, November 2019
  • Nepal was a wonderful adventure. The moving sights of the ongoing recovery from the awful earthquake of 2015, the charm and welcome of the people are set against the noise and chaos of the traffic, the paucity of traffic lights in the cities, making crossing the road an adventure in itself. We all gasped at the bird's nest of wiring strewn around everywhere - and marvelled at the sounds and smells of the old market in Kathmandu. In Chitwan, we came face to face with crocodiles and in Pokhara, we gazed in awe as the sun rose and illuminated the wonders of the Annapurna mountain range. A truly wonderful and memorable 10 days.
    Debbie Bowles, Sighted Traveller - Nepal, November 2019
  • Once in a lifetime experience!
    Margie Miranda, Blind Traveller - Thailand Tandem Cycling, October 2019
  • One of the travellers commented that she was nervous about going on a holiday on her own with a group of strangers, but we became a big happy family who felt like we'd known each other for years by the end. The sheer fun of cycling in an exotic country was massively enhanced by the inspiration and enjoyment gained from looking after VIs. The whole trip was well run with a fascinating itinerary and a good balance of hours in the saddle, stops at temples and coffee plantations and time on the beach and in waterfalls. If only each day had been longer!. And we all had great fun in the bars and restaurants at the end of each day! I am sure many of us will keep in touch and plan another adventure together with Traveleyes!
    Steve Taylor, Sighted Traveller - Thailand Tandem Cycling, October 2019
  • I recommend Traveleyes to anyone who is vision impaired or blind as a safe enjoyable method of travel. A great way to have adventures, explore new worlds, meet and make friends.
    Anne Hyslop, Blind Traveller - Thailand Tandem Cycling, October 2019
  • This is by far the best holiday I’ve ever had! It combined all the things I love: sport, meeting new people, excellent food, cultural diversity, teamwork, and FUN! It’s taken away a lot of my concerns about losing my sight and being unable to do many of the things I love. I met some inspirational VIs who taught me to, just do it! Low maintenance, high energy people who just happen to have a visual impairment, and I met a few of the kindest, most supportive and enthusiastic sighted buddies who I hope will become friends for life. What an adventure! What a team!
    Shirley Blenkinsop, Blind Traveller - Thailand Tandem Cycling, October 2019
  • The Traveleyes & SeeAbility challenge trek to Morocco's MT TOUBKAL pushed many people. It was a challenge indeed and while some reached the top, some didn't but we all climbed our own mountain in our lives. The people, sighted and VI, were all wonderful and provided so much laughter. We had a friendly Traveleyes tour leader who tried her best to make the trip as comfortable as possible. Being the eyes for VI trekkers was a unique experience and I'm happy to say that incredible bonds have been made.
    Saujan Pandhak, Sighted Traveller - Morocco Charity Challenge, October 2019
  • Overall great experience
    Jess Twitchin, Sighted Traveller - Morocco Charity Challenge, October 2019
  • This was my first Traveleyes trip and wow it was an incredible experience. You are looked after and everything is explained. The tour guides go out of their way to help and being amongst like-minded people meant the group bonded very quickly. I would recommend taking the opportunity for a different kind of holiday where you learn to appreciate the world from a different point of view. As a photographer, I didn't even mind not taking so many photos, as I got to experience travel on a whole new level. If you are curious, I would highly recommend a Traveleyes trip.
    Joanne Withers, Sighted Traveller - Morocco Charity Challenge, October 2019
  • The Traveleyes/SeeAbility trek to Morocco was one that will stay with me for the rest of my life. To complete this adventure and be apart of an amazing group was not just a challenge but also one of those moments that help you to understand more about yourself and others. I absolutely loved having the privilege in supporting people with visual impairments to achieve their goals and ambitions at the same time as me achieving mine. a unique and wonderful experience that everyone should try...
    Brian Robinson, Sighted Traveller - Morocco Charity Challenge, October 2019
  • Great trip to Uzbekistan lots to see and good to be able to see everywhere before it gets too touristy.
    Benjamin Wilson, Blind Traveller - Uzbekistan, October 2019
  • Thoroughly enjoyed my trip with Traveleyes, had a wonderful time and visited beautiful places of interest. Made some friends for life too!
    Valerie Baynton, Sighted Traveller - Uzbekistan, October 2019
  • As a sighted traveller you get a rare glimpse into the amazing lives your fellow visually impaired travellers live. Without exception, they were generous with sharing their personal stories, very willing to answer questions and taught me so much about the technology that has transformed their lives. Fascinating. I have been so humbled and truly inspired!
    Joan Cubbon, Sighted Traveller - Portugal Walking, October 2019
  • I would heartily recommend this trip to anyone wanting a reasonably active holiday in fantastic natural surroundings, as long as they like walking reasonable distances. All elements, manager, guides, food and accommodation work well together.
    Stephen Hopkins - Portugal Walking, October 2019
  • A holiday with a purpose to use my first passport since 1991. Feeling of safety with a group like this which suited a widowed person on her own.
    Rosemary Cahill, Sighted Traveller - Portugal Walking, October 2019
  • Yet more precious memories on a holiday which was as near to perfect as it could be. Lunches in the open air, tired after long walks and great company is what makes a holiday and Portugal was so special I will remember it for a long time. Friends often laugh when I tell them that walking holidays help me to relax, but they do not understand that whilst at home, walking independently for a blind person is far from relaxing and to be able to just switch off and enjoy the fresh air, a good chat with whoever is guiding me and the knowledge that wherever I go, I don't have to take notice in order to get back to where I started from. I always say to many people, including guides on the holiday, that they don't realise what a brilliant gift they are giving and, I suppose because they don't realise it, it becomes more naturally given. Warm thanks to everyone who made my Portuguese holiday such a great experience.
    David Buckley, Blind Traveller - Portugal Walking, October 2019
  • I’m sighted, I’d never guided a VI before, and Ibiza was my 1st Traveleyes holiday. I felt I should be wearing L plates, but my tour manager Suzy and my sighted companions who were old hands, were hugely supportive and I learned so much from them. I also tried navigating around my hotel room with the lights off, to help me understand VI life. But it was the VIs themselves, who took me by the hand and taught me what to do. They were without exception, staggeringly bright side of life good-humoured and sociable people. Ours was always a noisy group because we laughed so much, and we functioned as a team. I learned more about pride, humility and determination, than I ever could from any book. I’ve made some great new friends from the holiday, and I can’t wait for my next Traveleyes trip!
    Pamela Kirby, Sighted Traveller - Ibiza, September 2019
  • If you like travel, meeting new people and being helpful. then a Traveleyes holiday is meant for you! It's a fabulous adventure!
    Ruth Butcher, Sighted Traveller - Ibiza, September 2019
  • I love the Traveleyes approach. As a sighted guide I think I learn far more than I give. I am seeing the world through Traveleyes, it really works!
    Alison Rees, Sighted Traveller - Ibiza, September 2019
  • Very well organised, great leaders and a fun group, even first-timers enjoyed the experience!
    Lucy Wilson, Blind Traveller - Laos and Cambodia, September 2019
  • I really enjoyed my trip. It was very informative and enjoyable. The trip was well planned and arranged.
    Manjusri Welikala, Blind Traveller - Greece School Trip , September 2019
  • Experience travel from a different perspective as a sighted guide, enriching the journey for all...
    Metaxia Tsoukatos, Sighted Traveller - Egypt Nile Cruise, September 2019
  • I love exploring the world with TravelEyes. I have now done 5 trips as a sighted guide and looking forward to my 6th. I love finding out about the VIs that I'm travelling with and, after 5 trips, catching up with old friends. All of them are so inspirational. I love the fact that I see things so much better and more in-depth when I have to see them for someone else as well. I love going to unusual places that I would be hesitant to see on my own. I love being able to turn up at the airport and having everything arranged. This is a fantastic concept.
    Helen Fletcher, Sighted - Egypt Nile Cruise, September 2019
  • Thank you Traveleyes for a wonderful holiday experience. As this was my first ever guiding experience I feel like this trip was extra special as it opened up a whole new world to me. It has made me look at my life in a completely different way. I have made lifelong friends with people who happily shared their stories with me and trusted me to guide them even when I was unsure as this was all new to me. It was a privilege to experience this completely new world. Thank you so much and I look forward to guiding again one day.
    Katie Heywood, Sighted Traveller - Egypt Nile Cruise , September 2019
  • What other travel company gives you this experience? It was dusk as the sunset over the temple at Luxor in Egypt. We stood touching ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics carved thousands of years ago into massive sandstone columns. As we traced our fingers over the shapes we heard the call to prayer all around us. It was magical.
    Steve Ewens, Blind Traveller - Egypt Nice Cruise, September 2019
  • Many thanks to Traveleyes for the wonderful opportunities they offer to visually impaired customers who want to explore the world, with only the support and companionship of a sighted guide! I would heartily recommend Traveleyes to anyone who would like to experience a sociable and varied holiday, and in particular to sighted travellers who can share their sighted experience in an enthusiastic way to help bring alive a holiday to someone with a visual impairment.
    Angela Phillips, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria Walking, September 2019
  • Walking in Bulgaria with the VIs was a truly great experience. It was very rocky, steep and strenuous enough walking for a sighted person so to see the way the VIs coped was nothing short of inspiring. Those who had never been in chairlifts and gondolas before were able to conquer any fears and discover a wonderful new world in the air. We had a great group, superb accommodation and hosts and were able to discover what a beautiful country Bulgaria was into the bargain. Excellent!
    Carole Leadbeater, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria walking, September 2019
  • This was my first, but not my last Traveleyes adventure, as it exceeded all my expectations. The Bulgarian walking adventure is both physically and mentally exhilarating. The group consisted of interesting, like-minded people and we all learned so much from each other. I achieved more than I thought I could due to the ambitious, adventurous VI’s who took me out of my comfort zone or beyond my previous hiking limits. Thank you to the wonderful team and tour manager.
    Janet Johnson, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria Walking, September 2019
  • This was my sixth holiday with Traveleyes but my first in the UK. Who says you have to go abroad to have fun. This was a great weekend with some moments I will never forget. The company was great and the foul weather didn't matter. I would urge anyone, VI or sighted if you are thinking of booking with Traveleyes, try a UK trip first.
    Wendy Jones, Blind Traveller - Newcastle, August 2019
  • I have had the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the world. However, a visit to Machu Pichu and the Amazon were still on my bucket list. My trip to Peru and Machu Pichu was my first experience with Traveleyes, although I have many friends who had enjoyed their travels with them. I was enthralled with the entire trip; the range of experiences brought to life the diverse cultures of Peru; the support of the wonderful guides made the trip more accessible, with a feeling of safety and security than I had ever experienced on a holiday before. And the company of other visually impaired travellers added considerably to the trip. I do not believe I would have felt comfortable embarking on such a trip without the support of Traveleyes.
    Penny Hartin, Blind Traveller - Peru, August 2019
  • The trip to Peru was the real meaning of "awesome." Jungles, the Machu Picchu trail, terraced gardens, islands made of reed are just one part of what made this trip so amazing. The tour director kept us moving and allowed for those spontaneous moments of joy. Local guides shared their passion for their land and culture. We were a cohesive group of individuals. It was very professionally run. I'm already signed up for my next trip.
    Linda Kirk, Blind Traveller - Peru, August 2019
  • A trip to Peru was a lifelong ambition. This holiday surpassed all of my expectations. It was a privilege to share that experience with my partner. No one can understand how much travelling with VI friends can enhance everything until they've done it. Then there's no going back.
    Roberta Burnett, Sighted Traveller - Peru, August 2019
  • A very interesting concept, overall well orchestrated and a worthwhile experience from a sighted perspective anyway!
    Elisabeth McLean, Sighted Traveller - Newcastle, August 2019
  • Don't hesitate to travel with Traveleyes. If you travel either as a guide and a VI you will be well looked after and have lots of fun. The groups are friendly and caring. The excursions are well planned and very interesting. You are guaranteed to have a good time and won't find yourself alone. Everything is taken care, even someone to guide you to breakfast in the morning. Excellent.
    Anne Tomlinson, Sighted Travellers - Newcastle, August 2019
  • I have just returned from four days with Traveleyes discovering the delights of Newcastle, Durham and Alnwick. This was my first trip as a sighted guide and I met a lovely bunch of people. I had my eyes opened to life as a VI traveller and went to places with the excursions, that I wouldn't normally have seen and we had access to areas that the everyday traveller is not privileged to touch. The trip was well organised and the tour manager approachable and friendly. If you're thinking of trying a tour, jump right in, you will not regret it!
    Anabel Barker, Sighted Traveller - Newcastle, August 2019
  • We were apprehensive but needn’t have been - the trip was fabulous, informative and fun with a great bunch of people!
    Karen Brooke, Sighted Traveller - Berlin, August 2019
  • I have been part of a number of Traveleyes holidays as a sighted guide and I always meet interesting fellow travellers. I love the way sighted and visually impaired travellers work together to make each holiday a unique experience. Well done traveleyes.
    Sue Latham, Sighted Traveller - Sorrento, July 2019
  • an unforgettable experience in Sorrento! this was my first travel eyes trip. I thoroughly enjoyed experiencing the beauty, culture and flavours of Italy! especially the excursions. trip to Capri, sampling local limoncello, drinking far too much coffee and the amazing group of people on the trip were some of my highlights! love Italy, I will be travelling with travel eyes again :-)
    Jaina Mistry, Blind Travellers - Sorrento, July 2019
  • I completely loved this gorgeous adventure. It's allowed me to travel alone (without family or friends) and not feel lost. I strongly believe I will be booking Traveleyes holidays in the future. What a truly lovely rewarding experience.
    Hannah Bidwell, Sighted Traveller - Sorrento, July 2019
  • A lovely holiday in a beautiful location
    Allison Bolster, Sighted Travellers - Sorrento, July 2019
  • I enjoyed my Traveleyes trip to Copenhagen, the management and the sighted guides made me feel comfortable around them. I would certainly do another Traveleyes trip in the future. I think I have the travel bug now.
    Dean Calder, Blind Traveller - Copenhagen, July 2019
  • It was my first Traveleyes experience in Winchester 2019. I found the holiday most informative, and the Traveleyes representatives most accommodating.
    Dean Calder, Blind Traveller - Winchester, July 2019
  • Tremendous cruise experience to Iceland, including several ports of call, to see at first hand the culture, history and breathtaking landscape of the country. The trip was helped tremendously by a great group of people and our fantastic tour manager.
    Steve Whyley, Sighted Traveller - Iceland Cruise, July 2019
  • Lastly, we go on these holidays to see great places and experience wonderful things but never fails to amaze me the best thing is making new friends and on this cruise, I’ve made friends for life.
    Lewis Moran, Blind Traveller - Iceland Cruise, July 2019
  • The Traveleyes walking trip to the Rila Mountains in Bulgaria exceeded my expectations. For the first time, I was able to experience beautiful Alpine meadows and scenery in their mid-summer glory. We had wonderful hosts in Gerry and Sandra who went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible, whilst also ensuring that we did not miss out on any of Bulgaria's many culinary delights.
    Peter Cawley, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria Walking, July 2019
  • This was my first experience of travelling with Traveleyes and I cannot recommend the holiday highly enough. The walks are fabulous, five that were so quiet that you start to think you are alone in Bulgaria. The last one was up to one of the most visited lakes in the country, it was busy but so beautiful. The food was varied and so plentiful that any calories used up during the day were replaced in the evening.
    Elizabeth Caldwell, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria Walking, July 2019
  • What a great holiday! A small, family-run hotel just for our group, with welcoming hosts who could not do enough for us. Unspoilt walks in mountain scenery and a range of pre-booked, pre-paid restaurants serving excellent local food. Throw in a great group of travellers and what's not too like. We've been on this trip four times and we just love it.
    Steve Ewens, Blind Traveller - Bulgaria Walking, July 2019
  • I was a bit nervous about a walking holiday with visually impaired travellers as we would be in the mountains at altitude with some rocky, steep paths. However, all my fears dispersed as we had excellent, attentive guides and went at an easy pace, stopping plenty of times to admire views and hear about interesting facts about the region. Parts were challenging but it was so elating to finally finish the walk, exhausted but happy to have achieved it. An inspiring experience.
    Valerie Pelletier, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria Walking, July 2019
  • I have just returned from walking in Bulgaria. This was my first experience of Traveleyes. The week exceeded all my expectations and I feel extremely privileged to have been part of a group that walked and played so well together. I am looking on the website now to book my next trip!
    Julie Cullen, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria Walking, July 2019
  • The Traveleyes Cornwall holiday has many enjoyable aspects. The programme was varied; our companions were interesting company. We were looked after nicely.
    Diana Ambache, Sighted Travellers - Cornwall, June 2019
  • Traveleyes provides the opportunity for those that are blind or have visual difficulties to experience new places with the confidence that there is always someone close to assist them and warn them of dangers. Those without sight loss will be surprised at the achievements of those to whom they give assistance.
    Geoffrey Bligh, Blind Traveller - Cornwall, June 2019
  • Traveleyes really is different. Being in the company of blind and partially sighted people wasn't what I expected. We were warned that there was a Stag Party in the Hotel, and it might be noisy - but I think the noisiest group might have been us! I particularly liked that I could be helpful, and also have a really good time.
    Jeremy Polmear, Sighted Traveller - Cornwall, June 2019
  • If you’re thinking about going on a Traveleyes holiday, do it! You will not regret it! I guarantee you will have an absolutely fabulous time! I have been on two trips this year and they have both been absolutely amazing!
    Keith Pascoe, Blind Traveller - Tuscany school trip, June 2019
  • It was my first Holiday with Traveleyes and I really enjoy the trip to Dublin. I'm a blind person but most of my friends are sighted, so having the possibility to hang around with fellow blinds was extremely interesting. Company was fun and the tour was extremely well organised.
    Maurizio Molinari, Blind Traveller - Dublin, June 2019
  • This was my third trip with Traveleyes. Everyone was excellent and friendly, we soon got to know each other and I really enjoyed the trip as Dublin was a place I’ve wanted to visit for a long time. The tours were great and the local guides were very friendly. Thanks to everyone on the trip for making it a success, I look forward to going on another Traveleyes trip soon. If you’re reading this and considering whether to book as a VI or sighted traveller, I’d say definitely go ahead.
    Edward Bates, Blind Traveller - Dublin, June 2019
  • El Camino was my very first experience with Traveleyes and I can truly say it is not likely to be my last! I would encourage anyone thinking about joining the company definitely to have a go: you will not be disappointed! Everything is carefully planned and efficiently run, all VI's needs well catered for, great company, well-chosen tour leaders and accommodation. Undoubtedly more expensive than package tours on the open market, but good value, given the reliable guiding and all our needs being catered for. Go for it, you won't regret it!
    Roselyn Macaskill, Blind Traveller - Camino De Santiago, June 2019
  • Just returned from my second trip with TE. Did 6 days Coastal Camino, 135 km. We had heat, rain, shady forests, lemon trees, villages with colourful gardens, sandy beaches, tasty food, great chats, tears of joy, blisters and fun - all with smiling faces. Absolutely loved it. Especially looking at our group when we arrived at the Cathedral place made me very emotional - we did it, all together! Thank you to every single person on this trip.
    Heidi West, Sighted Traveller - Camino De Santiago, June 2019
  • For many years I have wanted to travel on the Camino into Santiago - this looked to be the ideal opportunity made all the more worthwhile by helping a group of visually impaired people achieve their goal as well. Thanks to Traveleyes for making it all possible.
    Roger Troughton, Sighted Traveller - Camino De Santiago, June 2019
  • Amazing holiday to Mallorca, great activities, made new friends and wonderful to make use of the language.
    Jennifer Murray, blind traveller - Mallorca, April 2019
  • The trip to Croatia was everything I had imagined and hoped for; friendly, welcoming travelling guests and tour guides- both from Traveleyes and the island. I felt exhilarated by the kayaking, hiking and magnificent scenery. I felt extremely grateful for the experience of meeting such beautiful people and learning from them all how to really live life, and experience it to the fullest. I can't wait to book another Traveleyes trip.
    Katie Allen, Sighted Traveller - Croatia, April 2019
  • This was my first holiday with Traveleyes and it was a wonderful experience. The tours and excursions were excellent and as a first-time traveller, I was made to feel very welcome by others in the group that had travelled before. I will definitely be booking another trip soon!
    Ramandeep Kaur, Sighted Traveller - Valencia, April 2019
  • I've travelled all over the world, and in many formats - solo, group tours, cruises, and so on - and I've experienced few holidays that resulted in the formation of good friendships as a Traveleyes holiday. The destinations are unique, the itineraries intriguing, and the company compelling.
    Brian Miller, Blind Traveller - Oman, April 2019
  • The Norwich trip was a great education about the varied history of Norwich and enjoyed by all. A good mix of people. Great trip on the Broads to finish off our Norfolk experience.
    Steve Whyley, Sighted Traveller - Norwich, April 2019
  • I enjoyed my first experience with Traveleyes because of the wonderful people who were visually impaired in our tour group. They were a wonderful group of well-travelled individuals who were interesting and interested in what we were all experiencing on the trip. It was an inspirational time.
    Sharrie-Ann Dial, Sighted Traveller - South Korea, April 2019
  • The tour manager was outstanding. The trip to Swaziland was fantastic. I would highly recommend this trip to an experienced and adventurous traveller. This was a really great group to travel with. My traveling companions were the highlight of this trip; everyone was so kind, friendly, funny and great to travel with and get to know. There were many highlights, including hikes, horseback riding, great food, and being chased by an enraged elephant!
    Aaron Richmond, Blind Traveller - Swaziland, April 2019
  • This was my first trip with Travel Eyes decided a short UK break to check I would be confident to be able to guide. Made a few mistakes forgot to tell my partner coming to steps (we were too busy laughing and chatting) so she tripped but no harm done . My partner laughed it off. Mental note to myself to concentrate better .
    The whole trip was relaxed. The experience was made so much fun with our excellent guide who was there for any eventuality.

    I truly hope all my fellow travellers enjoyed it as much as I did. FABULOUS
    Irena Cieslak, Sighted Traveller - Harrogate, March 2019
  • Great holiday with great company - full of admiration for the VIs on these trips - they cope better than some sighted people including me!
    Everything well organized and catered for.
    Ireen Norris, Sighted Traveller - Harrogate, March 2019
  • This being my first trip with Traveleyes, I was a bit skeptical as to how it would work, but I can assure anyone thinking of giving this type of holiday a go, that it is well worth it and very rewarding to know that you have helped someone less fortunate than you to have a holiday.
    Gwendoline Ann Bradley, Sighted Traveller - Harrogate, March 2019
  • This is a great way of enabling sighted travellers and VIs to team up and, between them, discover the world.
    James Bracewell, Sighted Traveller - Oman, March 2019
  • This was my first Traveleyes holiday. It's a fascinating way to travel and I would definitely book with you again.
    Anne J Brown, Sighted Traveller - Istanbul, March 2019
  • The pleasure of joining sighted and visually impaired travellers, whom I hadn't met previously, is as exciting as the actual trip destination. Traveleyes has a synergy which always attracts the most interesting people to its destinations; people from the most amazing, interesting backgrounds who enjoy sharing the adventure and discovery of new places. The patience and generosity of the guides is truly humbling and by the same token, they seem to enjoy sharing with visually impaired people and learning from our experiences and approaches to life. To me, Traveleyes is the best form of networking ever; far superior to social media because we are interacting face to face. Laughter is the constant accompanying soundscape for our interactions, alongside all exotic sounds found in a place such as Istanbul where the call to prayer is electrifying.

  • I have been on four varied holidays so far and have really enjoyed them all.
    They offer amazing value for money and you are looked after so well from the moment you meet at the airport until you return,
    with the fun of being part of a friendly caring group of fellow travellers, who quickly become "family"!
    Marilyn Clark, Blind Traveller - Sri Lanka, February 2019
  • Went to Sri Lanka to see their magical land
    A wonderful holiday I had, really grand,
    The scenery, train ride, the spice gardens too.
    These are some of the fabulous things waiting for you.
    Don’t miss out on this beautiful isle.
    Book on the next trip and all you will do is smile.
    Yvonne Duley, Sighted Traveller - Sri Lanka, February 2019
  • Traveleyes offers me as a visually impaired traveller a unique experience and opportunities to travel feeling safe but sometimes challenged! Meeting local guides and enjoying tastes and sounds as well as touching my surroundings is something I only get when I travel with you.
    Sheila Ramdular, Blind Traveller - Caribbean Cruise, February 2019
  • Our first Traveleyes holiday. It provided an excellent insight into guiding VI's. It was a very sociable holiday and we very much enjoyed meeting and being with new people - both VI and sighted. It opened our eyes to a new world and we gained a lot from it.
    Erik Johannesen, Sighted Traveller - Bristol & Bath, February 2019
  • My first trip with Traveleyes gets more than 5 stars. Went to La Palma, had a wonderful hotel at the seafront, with a pool and a fantastic buffet breakfast and dinner.
    Everything was made really easy for us, well organised and the tour manager did it all with a big smile. So much fun we had, learned and laughed a lot and enjoyed the whole
    experience. We all bonded and I honestly hope to meet some of our group again. I am still on cloud nine and have my name on a waiting list for the next trip.
    Thank you all, it was such an honour for me.
    Waltraud (Heidi) West, Sighted Traveller - La Palma, February 2019
  • A great way to meet a diverse group of people, make new friends and explore some amazing places.
    Helena Smith, Sighted Traveller - La Palma, February 2019
  • A relaxing February week in the warmth and relaxed atmosphere of La Palma.
    Looking forward to a similar trip in the winter of 2020.
    Geoff Pickance, Blind Traveller - La Palma, February 2019
  • Traveleyes is unique in its organisation. Sighted people and those who have visual impairment have the opportunity to holiday together. For the sighted traveller it is interesting to find out more about those with visual impairment and their possible attitude to life. For many V I ‘s it is their only way of visiting so many new places. Changing the person you guide each day means you interact with different people is interesting and also means that you get to know a large number of people.
    Margaret Coles, Sighted Traveller - La Palma, February 2019
  • The trip to La Palma was most enjoyable, it’s a beautiful island and it was a pleasure to be part of the group as a sighted guide.
    Carolyn Chapman, Sighted Traveller - La Palma, February 2019
  • If you’re looking for a trip full of laughter and adventure, Traveleyes are definitely the way to go! I had such an amazing time, it’s one of the best holidays I’ve ever been on! Our tour managers were two of the friendliest people I’ve ever met and made the experience of Thailand one I’ll never forget. We managed to get so much done in 2 weeks and everything we did was just incredible! Honestly a trip I’ll never forget!
    Lauren Limmer, Sighted Traveller - Thailand School Trip, February 2019
  • What a great variety of experiences, all on the same holiday! From mountains to beaches. From vineyards to townships. Fantastic food, compelling history and to cap it all off, the chance to get up close and personal with snakes, tarantulas and a cheetah. Yes, you really can do all this even if you can't see. What's not to like?
    Steve Ewens, Blind Traveller - Cape Town, February 2019
  • A rich and aromatic blend of coffee, Vulcanism, chocolate, parrots, and Maya. Thank you Traveleyes for expanding my own personal horizons.
    Luke Riches, Blind Traveller - Guatemala, January 2019
  • The Guatemala holiday was fantastic. This was my first holiday with Traveleyes and it definitely won't be the last. I'm beyond impressed with the VIs and it was a wonderful experience to learn how to be a sighted guide.
    Susan Rockliffe, Sighted Travellers - Guatemala, January 2019
  • The Traveleyes trip to Guatemala was a tremendous experience, a combination of enjoyable company, the reward of travelling with VI's as well as sighted people, and the ability to understand the history of the country as well as the modern day local culture. The activity options worked well with the general sightseeing. Most enjoyable was the local co-operative weaving and tortilla making experience, complete with taking part in the simulated family wedding. The hotel locations at Lake Atitlan and in Antigua were fantastic. A great time had by all, led by our experienced smiling leader and local guide.
    Steve Whyley, Sighted Traveller - Guatemala, January 2019
  • I had a very relaxing and most enjoyable holiday in the Seychelles, returning home ready to face the onset of winter! It was a beautiful destination with lots to experience. It was very reassuring to be able to go on holiday as a blind person and to know that you would have assistance throughout if required. Thank you Traveleyes.
    Jamie Cuthbertson, Blind Traveller - Seychelles, January 2019
  • great holiday in excellent company - recommended wholeheartedly
    Christine Martin, Sighted Traveller - Danube River Cruise , January 2019
  • I am a widow who wanted to travel the world but had no-one in a position to accompany me. I was too scared to go alone and nervy about singles holidays (nudge, nudge, you know what I mean). Then I discovered Traveleyes and it has changed my life for the better. I have been to so many places I would not have dared go to before because I know that Traveleyes will look after me if anything goes amiss. There is absolutely no hassle. You say you want to go and if that trip is not sold out you pay your money and turn up at the airport or wherever you are meeting. Traveleyes do the rest, including giving you all the info about the hotel, the itinerary, local currency and customs, etc. I have made so many good friends on these holidays and some of us have stayed in contact. I always look forward to finding out who is on the holiday, because you often meet up with people you have not seen for ages and that is really nice. Whether you are sighted or not, if you want an interesting and fun holiday with super people I recommend you join us.
    Mrs. Gail Jones, Sighted Traveller - Barbados, December 2018
  • Awesome! Beyond my expectations, I can't think of enough good things to say!
    Mr. Ed Miller, Sighted Traveller - Dusseldorf and Cologne, December 2018
  • My first time as a sighted guide, and certainly not my last.
    My best holiday ever, 17 strangers soon became best friends.
    I've learnt so much on this holiday, both about myself and about VIP's and how working together as a team makes everything easier.
    Christine Vickers, Sighted Traveller - Cinque Terre, November 2018
