• I have now participated in 3 holidays provided by Traveleyes. They have all been positive and exciting experiences, allowing me as a severely sight impaired traveller to visit parts of the world I never thought I would get to.

    The social aspect of being part of a group where you can forge real friendships and often meet up again with people who have been on previous holidays that you’ve been on is a real strength of the Traveleyes experience.
    Michael Scanlan, Blind Traveller - St. Petersburg and Scandinavian Capitals, June 2018
  • Traveleyes have given me an experience I feared I could never have as a blind man. I cannot rate the company and service and concept enough. I fell in love with San Francisco, California and Yosemite national park. I was nervous that the national park would be hard for me to conceptualise because I couldn't see but I was wrong. I still got plenty out of it and found our local guide to slide easily into describing things in a way those of us who couldn't see could understand. I was sad to say goodbye to the group as the entire setup liberated me in a way I always thought lost forever since I lost my vision and we genuinely got along really well. Dan our tour guide was brilliant in every way and allowed me to get the most out of the holiday. I am telling every blind person I know to use you guys. You have no idea what you have done for me.
    Conor Smith, Blind Traveller - San Francisco & Yosemite, June 2018
  • Traveleyes is unique! A group of people who have never met very quickly become friends. We share our interest in the places we visit. I enjoy guiding and trying to describe what I see and I end up seeing more too.
    Carol May, Sighted Traveller - Greece & the Dalmatian Coast Cruise, June 2018
  • I had an amazing holiday! I would highly recommend a school trip to anyone. Both you and the students get so much out of it!
    Kimberley Jones, Blind Traveller - Tuscany 2018 - Tuscany, June 2018
  • If you are looking to travel to exciting destinations, in a well organised friendly group, look no further than Traveleyes.

    For sighted people you will find no better way of spending your holiday, it is so rewarding in many ways, I always feel I get much more out of the trips than I put into it, My face aches so much from the laughs we have, we see splendid places, meet amazing people, and I think all of us go back to our everyday lives refreshed and happy, what more could you ask for?
    Jane Atkin, Sighted Traveller - Camino de Santiago, June 2018
  • I had an unforgettable experience walking the Camino de Santiago. Walking each day through the Spanish countryside with my guide was relaxing and lots of fun. The bird life was exceptional and added a lot to my enjoyment of the walks. I am not religious in any way but, walking into the square in Santiago de Compostela accompanied by the pipes was an experience I will treasure for a long time. With a strong feeling of comradeship with my fellow travellers there was a sense of having completed a journey which left me with a tremendous sense of achievement. The feeling of warmth and companionship from the rest of the group will keep me going for a long time and I feel renewed by the whole experience.
    David Buckley, Blind Traveller - Camino de Santiago, June 2018
  • Outstanding group leader, well organised and wonderful trip. I felt safe, encouraged and was in a fabulous group of what have now become life-long friends.
    Maryse Theberge, Blind Traveller - San Francisco & Yosemite, June 2018
  • This was my first ever cruise and I really enjoyed the experience. I had never been to any of the Scandinavian countries before so this was an excellent way of experiencing them. My only negative was the food which was excellent and too readily available!!! It was also lovely to meet up with old friends on this holiday and also make new ones.
    Eileen Smith, Sighted Traveller - St. Petersburg and Scandinavian Capitals, June 2018
  • When I lost my sight I felt that my world had ended. I never thought I would ever be able to walk outside the house. Now I find myself in the main square of Santiago, standing in front of the cathedral, with tears running down my face, having just completed the final section of the Camino. Thank you for making this possible. It was a challenging week of walking, made all the better for sharing it with some lovely, caring, funny people. Right, now arrange for me to walk part of the Great Wall of China and I'll die happy!
    Steve Ewens, Blind Traveller - Camino de Santiago, June 2018
  • The Azores was my third trip with Traveleyes. Each experience has been unique as each country I have travelled to with Traveleyes

    Going on a Traveleyes trip is a nice change from what I generally do in my every day life. It's another opportunity to interact with new people and explore uncharted territories as well.

    This is a fantastic company which has provided me with great experiences in multiple different countries.
    Stephanie Sherwood, Sighted Traveller - Azores, June 2018
  • Don't think about it, just do it!
    James Mumford, Blind Traveller - Greece & the Dalmatian Coast Cruise, June 2018
  • I am officially hooked! You won’t be able to get rid of me now! Honestly, my first Traveleyes trip was a five-star experience.
    Chinenye Idigo, Blind Traveller - Bilbao, May 2018
  • I met wonderful, generous and grateful people on the two holidays that I've now been on. Would highly recommend this type of holiday if you want a holiday with fun people while also making a bit of an effort for those who cannot see.
    Greg O'Donoghue, Sighted Traveller - Marbella, May 2018
  • This was our first trip with Traveleyes and as soon as we got home we booked our second!
    David Fogg, Blind Traveller - Croatia, March 2018
  • My husband and I was travelled with Traveleyes at least 14 times in the last 11 years. Without the company we would not go to all the exciting places we have been. We have met wonderful guides and interesting fellow travellers. We have booked two more holidays this year. The staff are friendly and helpful and I would recommend the holidays to all visually impaired folks.
    Anne Howell, Blind Traveller - Marrakesh, March 2018
  • Going with Traveleyes as a sighted guide opens my mind to so many possibilities. As a solo traveller myself it is great to be with others, VI or sighted, who are literally in the same boat!

    The daily change of person to guide challenges my powers of description and often pushes me to do things I might otherwise shy away from.
    It is always fun, never boring and you make new friends on every holiday.
    Jon Elsmore, Sighted Traveller - United Arab Emirates, February 2018
  • Only my second, and another great holiday with Traveleyes. These are truly experience holidays - you get to enjoy a range of in-country experiences that you don't get with other tours that help to bring the country to life. The other great element of the experience being the people you meet - guiding and describing to your fellow travellers adds a whole new dimension to the experience - you see more as a sighted guide and sharing that with new friends is what makes the experience unique.
    Debbie Bowles, Sighted Traveller - Mexico, February 2018
  • Highly recommended for meeting new people and travelling to places one has not had the opportunity to visit before. Very good value for money with excellent Traveleyes group leaders and local tour guides.
    It is a ideal opportunity to be able to assist someone else to enjoy their holiday to the full. The Traveleyes pack is perfect to help you with the experience. Really enjoyable holidays.
    Maureen Smith, sighted traveller - Finland, December 2017
  • As someone who has never had sight, I thought it would be vision "overload", but sighted guides described very well and together with 'hands-on' experiences created a vivid and fantastic holiday.
    Maggie Bowes, Blind Traveller - Zambia, Zimbabwe & Botswana, November 2017
  • If you want to book a holiday with a difference, then look no further than Traveleyes!
    I wasn't sure what to expect when I signed up for a trip to Zimbabwe, Zambia and Botswana, but I needn't have worried. It turned out to be one of the best holidays that I have ever taken.
    If you want to experience a new adventure, with like minded people, and feel that you are helping others in the process, then a Traveleyes holiday could be just what you are looking for.
    Melissa Priest, sighted traveller - Zambia, Zimbabwe & Botswana, November 2017
  • If you are reading this, don't hesitate to choose your adventure and have one of the best experiences of your life!
    Cathy Mcsweeney, sighted traveller - Tandem Cruising in Holland, September 2017
  • The tandem tour of Holland was excellent. The experience was made very special by the mix of wonderful people, humor and camoradory . Some of the cycling was tough and you needed a level of experience and fitness, but the support of the group helped make it a fun experience. A trip full of interesting places, windmills that crushed mustard, the sweet smell of the fields with the last of the years flowers filling the air with scent. The heat of the kiln in the Delft factory, and the feel of the pottery moulds. The cheese tasting and noise of the machinery to make the clogs. The tour was varied and interesting. The guide and tour manager ensured we were safe and provided support throughout the experience. A week full of cycling, interesting places, friendly travelers , aching limbs, homely food and laughter. What a great experience.

    Sian Healey, blind traveller - Tandem Cruising in Holland, September 2017
  • I recently travelled to Lanzarote with Traveleyes and, after nearly a week back at home I am still feeling the benefits of this relaxing break. There are rare moments of true happiness in anyone's life but on that holiday, when I was able, with the help of my guide, able to swim freely in the sea and walk along a sandy beach which we swam to from a yacht, it doesn't get much better than that for me. I am totally blind and the holidays with Traveleyes are, firstly, about removing some of the restrictions I face in my daily life for a time, and secondly, being able to relax, knowing that I don't have to bother planning journeys, getting menus read and many other minor tasks which can add to the daily stresses of life.

    Here's to the next one.
    David Buckley, blind traveller - Lanzarote, September 2017
  • I'm a seasoned traveller and this has been perhaps one of the most rewarding and enlightening trips I have taken. The group was multicultural, diverse and got on remarkably well. The behind the scenes work provided by both Traveleyes and the local tour guides made the trip stress free and enjoyable. The following days agendas were discussed over dinner and drinks. We were advised what was/was not needed for the each day and it made the whole experience worry free and relaxing knowing that everything has already been taken care of. 5 Star Traveleyes!
    Christopher Massey, sighted traveller - Burma, September 2017
  • My first experience of a Traveleyes holiday was a joy and a privilege. Sharing a wide range of experiences with visually impaired travellers heightened my appreciation of our adventures together. Great fun, great people and I'll be back for more!
    Jean Robinson, sighted traveller - Burma, September 2017
  • Walking in the high mountains of Bulgaria was a wonderful experience, with rocks, rivers, lakes, forests and wild flowers all around us. It was a pleasure for me as a sighted person to be able to help visually impaired people enjoy this experience. There was the sound of water flowing and birds calling, the sun and wind to feel (and rain one day!), the ski lifts and the sensation of walking up and down mountain paths to enjoy. I felt we all had a lot of fun, as well as learning a little about Bulgaria, its culture and traditions and delicious food.
    Clare Meiklejohn, Sighted Traveller - Bulgaria, July 2017
  • The way Traveleyes structures its group tours brings people who may never have taken the opportunity to come together to do so.
    So if you are one who likes exotic food eaten on a beach at sunset with kites and fireworks overhead; likes meeting monkeys, sea turtles and Komodo dragons face to face; want to hike to emerald and sapphire volcanic lakes; join in with the traditional dances of the villages; barter in the local markets; swim in tropical warm seas at dusk; and relax amongst good company; then sign up!
    Rick Hoskin, Blind Traveller - Indonesia, July 2017
  • The Traveleyes holidays for me have opened new doors and have given me the chance to travel the world.
    Jane Hawthorn, Blind Traveller - Indonesia, July 2017
  • To any visually impaired traveller who has not gone on a Traveleyes holiday before and is thinking about going on a trip..... Don't worry just go ahead and book one. It will be a great experience. This holiday was a lovely break in a friendly hotel in a good location. There was no hassle, no drama, just good company, good food, a good mix of activities and time to relax in the sun. What are you waiting for?
    Steve Ewens, Blind Traveller - Mallorca, June 2017
  • The experience of travel with Traveleyes will remain with you for the rest of your life, blind or sighted.
    Laurence Jay, Sighted Traveller - Mallorca, June 2017 - Mallorca, June 2017
  • My first ever holiday with Traveleyes was incredible, I laughed and cried, met some amazing people and learned a lot about Madeira and people with sight loss. Thank you for a wonderful experience.
    Carol Pattison, Sighted Traveller - Madeira, June 2017
  • I enjoyed the trip to Texas it was a fascinating place. My greatest achievement was getting on the horse at the ranch to go horse riding with the cowboys. I enjoyed it so much I did it 3 times. The Space centre in Houston was amazing, particularly if you're into space and what made it all the more special was whilst we were at the ranch we watched the space station pass over us in the evening. I've met some amazing people on this trip and we've had a lot of fun and laughter together
    Helen Whatley, Sighted Traveller - Texas, May 2017
  • I have just returned from a trip to Thailand (April 2017). It was my first trip with Traveleyes as a sighted traveller and from the experiences I had and the memories that I will always cherish it certainly wont be my last. I laughed until I cried and also shed a few emotional tears when after giving a little assistance fellow travellers that were blind/visually impaired undertook new experiences which were on their 'wish list'. It was a truly rewarding holiday.
    The whole trip was well organised with first class accommodation and excellent excursions which provided a good overview of Thailand. A Traveleyes tour manager who travelled with us ensured it all ran seamlessly.
    If you are looking for a holiday with good company, new experiences and memories that you will cherish book with Traveleyes.
    Lyn Davies, Sighted Traveller - Thailand, April 2017
  • My husband and I are both partially sighted and have travelled with Traveleyes for over ten years going on twelve holidays. Most of them have been long hall, to South and North India, Vietnam, Sri Lanka and America to name but a few. We have been privileged to travel with Amar several times and have also met some lovely people. The sights, smells, atmosphere and food of the many places we have visited will stay in my memory.

    So if you haven't been yet, what is stopping you....
    Anne Howell, Blind Traveller - Thailand, April 2017
  • I thoroughly enjoyed the holiday, and l now know how Traveleyes adds to the whole quality of life of many who sign up! It was my privilege to participate! - it was a fantastic exhilarating holiday! Describing the scenery and historic sites and artefacts to my perceptive VI companion - who quickly became a friend - was challenging, humbling and invigorating! I shall never again take my sight for granted.
    Jane Tarver, Sighted Traveller - The Orkneys, April 2017
  • This was an amazing holiday. It was my first holiday with Travel Eyes as a sighted adventurer and has changed the way I see the world in many ways. We shared so many interesting and exciting experiences together I can't wait to start on another adventure.
    Jane Haysom, Sighted Traveller - Nepal, March 2017
  • I always enjoy travelling with Traveleyes. As a sighted traveller, guiding VIP's is an enriching experience. There is always a lovely group atmosphere, better than in other organisation I have travelled with. I have met many wonderful people and it is a great pleasure to share this experience with others.
    Dominique Simpson, Sighted Traveller - Harrogate, March 2017
  • Another wonderful trip, whenever I tell people about Traveleyes I always feel confident in telling them about the consistently good quality of the trips and the support from the Traveleyes staff.
    James Barratt, Blind Traveller - Madrid and Toledo, March 2017
  • My first trip with Traveleyes so didn't really know what to expect. However I can honestly say it was one of the most enjoyable experiences I have had. From the first meeting at the airport I found everyone was chatting away to everyone else as if they already knew one another. This continued right through the holiday. It was a lovely experience and having to help my friends who were visually impaired actually made me far more aware of what was around me. A great experience and can't wait for the next Traveleyes holiday
    Val Pelletier, Sighted Traveller - Madrid and Toledo, March 2017
  • I enjoyed myself so much I have been busy telling all my friends about it, in the hope that they will sign up as sighted travellers, which will mean that you have even more holidays available.
    Valerie Williams, Sighted Traveller - Madrid and Toledo, March 2017
  • Traveleyes have developed a wonderful model for blind and sighted people to enjoy holidays together. AS a totally blind person I found the sighted travellers both warm and very very helpful, enriching my holiday experience with their guiding, explaining scenery and what we are walking passed as we travel around. Also I had a strong feeling that the sighted travellers also gained a lot from their experience, and at no time was I made to feel they were simply looking after me.
    I would heartily recommend these holidays for both blind and sighted travellers, try one you will be amazed!
    Colin Palgrave, Blind Traveller - Harrogate, March 2017
  • I've been experiencing the world with TravelEyes for just over 4 years. Had you told me before then that one day I'd be in touching distance of a Galapagos sea turtle or the target of a sea-lion's games, would have the opportunity to climb a centuries-old lava cliff or feel my way along an underground lava tunnel, would witness the mating noises of giant tortoises or eat breakfast and dinner in the open air of the Amazon region of Ecuador, I'd have thought you were crazy. Yet again, the combination of stunning locations and knowledgeable, interesting and adventurous fellow-travellers has given me some wonderful memories that will last a lifetime.
    Mark Colman, Blind Traveller - Galapagos and The Amazon, December 2016
